hey guys, new to hog hunting and Texas now that deer season is over I'm looking into getting after some pigs. i live in south austin and typically off work monday and tuesday if anyone is free to maybe show me some pointers. I was able to spot and stalk one at lake somerville during midday but saw them out of my tree stand so i feel i was kind of lucky.

Let me know when you are planning to head out. I'm out there all the time. I'd be happy to tag along. I'm still a bit of a newbie myself

Hahaha! Everyone knows Carnage lives up to his name. Between him, Chief, and the helicopters it's a miracle any hogs survive.

I envy you guys that live right by Granger. 2 1/2 hr drive from house to gate 7 parking lot, or Taylor park. Then kayak ride or hike into PC.

Dang! Been a long time since I've seen that many. Mostly see 1 or 2 at a time with a few Sounders in between. Just put some new broadheads on and threw my bow in the truck. Might be calling in sick tomorrow...
