I speak only for myself...
Applications for Texas public land hunts are up across the board looking at whatever stats are available. More people are looking at PHL and WMAs as an alternative to the ridiculous per gun prices at private leases. Internet surely has an influence but to attribute it to a couple of willing, and generous folks is also ridiculous.
It's a gorgeous place, and like anything great the word gets out whether you like it or not. I spent almost a month's worth of days out there coming from DFW. You know I learned about Granger? The dang Drawn hunt catalog. Anyone with less than a 12 pack in them would see it's a great spot. You "locals" are on about nothing. Moose antlers on your back in your avatar...others with access to private lands bordering Granger and more still with exotic animals at their leisure...I don't think TNBoy is the only one that should have Spoiled attached to his name.

Granger piggies ARE delicious! Granger deer ARE delicious. Be prepared to earn them.

I will be at the standby this year. I was not aware when I bought my first ever permit the drawing was as simple as it is. Some hunts require a fair $ to even to a shot at the draw. I left a message to the Game Warden number listed in the book to educate me a bit on the standby. He has not called. I see stands obviously left up long term. Some look abandoned but were quality once upon a time? I guess enforcement is limited. I built a light small ladder set up I hope to leave but I try to follow rules. If I move it around and update tag maybe it is legal. Also it is clear Hunter Orange is required. Being up front, once I am hidden and not moving would they come down on me for removing the orange per say while up in a tree?

I would suggest using your own judgement. From what I've seen, this is the most laid back hunt on the docket. I have quite a few stands marked on my OnX map.

Don't let the Good Ole Boys get you down.

Thanks for comments TN. Laid back is a good thing. Just looked up OnX. It looked really good per the brags on the site. As for as my ladder I will find a good spot and work it. If the ladder disappears, very little in it.

TN, Nice to see someone willing to help others. If you seem an older fella, Anglo and most hair is still semi brown, I would like to meet ya. My Truck is Red ford Crew. Gate 6 may be a start to learn the area. Not sure yet. Too darned hot to scout much. My only spoiled side was when I could out run the whipping I deserved and got away with it.

This is my first time to draw lake granger. I understand there is a mandatory meeting on the 19th that I have to go to but do you have to do anything special to hunt hog if I wanted to go because the 19th?

The 19th is mandatory to get your deer permit. If you don't go, no permit, no permit no deer hunting.

Hog hunting is year round with an APH.

Top buck was a missed click using my phone. That's a buck from TN. 3rd buck is most definitely a Granger buck from very back of Pecan.

Hey Just started hunting with a bow and wanted to take a few piggies out here if possible. I have a lone wolf tree stand and I was thinking about maybe baiting a spot for a little while then going out there and setting up one morning or evening. Any tips would be appreciated!

Gained a lot of public spots before the forum data scrubbing started. Had a co-worker send me some pics he had taken with his smart phone from his "lease" and after checking the data they were actually from hagerman... hmmm.

Thses 2 are related. Notice the white eye patch and antlers are similar as well as body build.

Since you are allowed to use a feeder, can you leave a ďstandĒ out there more than 72 hours that has a gear tag but not a ďblindĒ? I would assume that since you can put a feeder up then you could put a stand up during the season and leave it out there, but the information was just worded weird. Thanks for help.
i had stands out there for 3 Years. lol...but u are correct

Hey guys and gals,

Iím down in the Corpus Christi area and drew granger lake this year. Iím not going to be able to scout until October 19th(opener) and was wondering if anyone would be willing to private message me with some general spots to look at or hunt. Iím not asking for lat longs of an exact tree to hunt out of but more of some general pointers and things youíve learned through the years hunting granger. Thanks.

Not sure how I missed this comment, but I'm glad you "speak only for yourself" because if yout spoke for others that would be pretty scary. The "moose antlers" on my back are from a DIY hunt I did in Alaska. You want to talk about "earning it". Go do an Alaskan DIY hunt then we can talk. Side note, moose are not an "exotic" animal and I promise you, you will not see one out near Granger. Good lord...

Good thing I comprehend what I read also. Exotic wasn't referring to you, there was more than one reference, the thoughts were separate. You saw red though, and thought the whole post was about you. Just like local lands are all about you.
Congratulations on a gorgeous harvest, truly. You missed the point though. Some of us may never get a chance to put in that kind of work no matter how willing and capable we may be. So we rely on these drawn hunts. I'm grateful I got the opportunity to enjoy the suck last season at Granger. I was blessed with some venison as a reward.
Have a good season bubba.

I wasn't seeing red. What I saw was a run-on sentence with little to no structure. Periods and commas are your friend. Either way you are ensenuauting that I am spoiled and that public lands are all about me. That would rub any man the wrong way none the less.

Ellipses are also punctuation Mr. Grammar Police. That was the point, er, points. Reading your comments, your message is clear. You don't like non-locals increasing the draw pot and reducing your personal odds as a local. That's selfish. Throw in the other opportunities you've had to hunt, and yeah it sounds spoiled. You're trying to make people feel some kind for way for putting in for a public draw and yet you want to justify feeling some kind of way about my words. Not a whole lot of consistency there bubba.
Carry on sir, nothing to see here. I haven't done a DIY Alaskan hunt so who am I to say anything?

Ellipses are also punctuation Mr. Grammar Police. That was the point, er, points. Reading your comments, your message is clear. You don't like non-locals increasing the draw pot and reducing your personal odds as a local. That's selfish. Throw in the other opportunities you've had to hunt, and yeah it sounds spoiled. You're trying to make people feel some kind for way for putting in for a public draw and yet you want to justify feeling some kind of way about my words. Not a whole lot of consistency there bubba.

What are you talking about? You must be fun at parties. I said nothing about non-locals putting in for the hunt. You just need someone to argue with and to put down. It makes you feel better about yourself. You along with a few others have completely missed the point.

That was certainly a memorable moment Now a deer in a tree would be one heck of a sight. That would for sure top anything else I've ever seen.

Side note, moose are not an "exotic" animal and I promise you, you will not see one out near Granger. Good lord...

Just laughed at his spoiled comment. Hes a dumbass and has no clue what hes talking about.

Everything i have is because i busted my *** for it and work like a dog. Nothing was given to me my home my land my exotics were all hard earned and are a result of a liftime of savings and work. Some of us are willing to put in the time work and effort to have what we dream about. Some others...not so much. They just want to ***** about what others have and accomplish instead of going out and doing it themselves.

I have not Bow hunted in many years due to an injury. I have over 50 years experience and learning a crossbow first time so I suppose I am rookie again. I can not tell a lie. I chopped down the ash juniper tree.

The Corps Ranger said that was acceptable but noted TX parks and Wildlife was the source to clarify questions. 2 years ago white bass wade fishing I witnessed 4 or 5 medium sized pigs run in to the water snarling and snapping at 2 or 3 fishermen wading in the river than turn and run away. Wow! Unsure what provoked it but scary either way.
I can understand doubts to my report of what I saw as it was indeed strange. I saw pigs, fisherman and commotion in the water roughly 150 plus yards from me and assumed odd as it is, the pigs approached the fisherman. Perhaps the fisherman startled the pigs? Very few folks out that day and it was quiet on the river. I would not want to be that close to pigs that were clearly not happy holding only a fish pole. How it came together I do not know. I heard noises and splashing and turned and saw people and pigs close together and the pigs quickly run off. This was between the steps and the rail crossing.
