Has anyone been out since the season ended? This rain is either good, or bad. I don't know yet. I was thinking of taking a trip up there to try and find some hogs but I feel like since my hunting skills are terrible, ill wait until I can bait and then try again.

I have only seen one hog running away while I hunted this year. They must have been hiding.

I was recently down there. Itís pretty wet from all the rain. I also didnít see any hogs either. I did see some tracks of pigs that looked some what fresh.

Everyone is so quiet...

I plan to bait when that time comes. I will try to shoot something. I have to shoot something!

Walking around looking for pigs is a great time to scout for next deer season as well. As long as the wind is steady and in your face, you can stalk pigs pretty easy. It is a great time to hone on your hunting skills. Plus, you will find where others have feeders set up and you can just hunt near their set up if you want to hunt a consistently baited site

I’ve never hunted Summerville, would you say that it’s crowded? I’m looking for hogs year round not interested in hunting deer out there .

It gets hunted hard- Close to Houston, Huntsville, and College Station....Since crossbows are archery and airbows then that opens up even more archery hunters from nearby populations.

Plus you have duck hunters all in area

That sucks, a few guys I know have said the same thing. Guess I’ll just stick to what I’ve been doing besides Summerville is right at a 2 hour drive.

Iíve never hunted public land before. I see that there are some information stations and designated parking areas for those. On google earth it appears thereís some other roadways with possible parking areas that are not attached to the information stations. Are you allowed to drive on those or only the ones marked with a station?
