Every time I go out to Granger I pick up trash. Too many bank fishermen leave their crap lined along the trail. It is frustrating to say the least.

Be sure to attach the hog tag to the hog, and include you name and the date on the tag. Don't forget to leave hair on one leg for identification purposes.

I just wanted to say thank you to you guys for showing me the sore finger unit at Granger PHL. It's by far the best area for Hogs if you put in the leg work. My freezer also thanks you!

If you got drawn for deer, you are spoiled.

Heading out to granger this weekend, just wondering if we're allowed to set up a tent anywhere on the public land or is it only in the designated "primitive campgrounds" thanks!

Planning on camping the night on Saturday

I am spoiled. If it wasn't for the public drawings, it would be less expensive for me to fly back to Tennessee for deer season. I need to find a working bow lease that doesn't cost as much as having a second child!

My son drew Granger too, as well as, Abilene SP, Chap, and we both drew doe tags for SHNF.

Going to be a fun season! Time to purchase a freezer.

I applied late last year for what was left open in late September. I did not get drawn for any but my son drew a SHNF doe permit.

This year we applied the 1st day it opened up. My son is 10 and we put in for every hunt together.

If I don't get drawn next year I'll just fly home and hunt. My son and I both have lifetime licenses in TN. Our muzzleloader season is the 2 weeks during the rut! Awesome time to be home

That is funny. That beard has got to be throwing its own gravitational pull. Lost any kids lately?

Nice pig Yogapants. Very nice bow.

Heck yeah! What area was that? I jumped a big black boar when I was scouting out there in San Gabriel. Didn't have my bow so had to back down, vowed revenge on that porker.
