Got my first bow kill today! Was walking on a trail and saw some movement. One black hog ran off and a spotted one was still feeding. Got down drew back and shot at him 20 yards through brush. Perfect double lung pass through ran maybe 35 yards. Decent sized boar.

I posted a facepalm emoji for those that think USACE would survey using feeders and bait yet prohibit them for hunters.

I spoke with a ranger this week actually and he said he conducts the surveys himself with corn.

I was able to put one down at the Vine this morning! He came in right at first light, 35 yards, double lung, arrow got about 1/2 penetration, not good blood at first but it got better, he ran about 70-80 yards.

Lots of sirens in the Byron Nelson High School area from 4:10 to 5:30
My bet, it was in that area North of the school.

The report someone on facebook shared said 'hanging upside down from a tree with arrow in the leg'. Does not sound like a good day!

All I know is they called in for a Fire Department boat for a male in a tree shot with an arrow. And possibly in an area accessible by boat.

Obviously that doesn't necessarily mean he was "shot" with an arrow.

Saw it on Facebook. Hopefully heís alright.

Iíll stand corrected on the surveying with corn thing if yíall have actually talked to someone who does it.

Then Iíll add a facepalm for using corn to survey on land that prohibits corn for hunters. Says a lot about how the place is run. The temptation is too strong for some to cheat the system and bait for deer. Spotlight, use your hunter surveys, do anything else you need but donít freaking bait for them when baiting is illegal for everyone else. I just donít get it.

Have any of you taken the survey on the COE website?
It asks for our opinions.

How about creating some access points (fence step-over ladders).
Allow (bow only) night hunting for hogs and coyotes. If we want a healthy deer population let's deal with the invasive hogs that dominate food sources and the predation of deer by coyotes.

Do yall have any other ideas?

There's a link to the survey on the website

Maybe them folks I saw at 4am with crossbows with a bag of corn over their shoulder all those years ago were just doing surveys.

And as to suggestions, yeah. I have.

I donít quite understand why there is a hog only area to begin with, and secondly, why all the areas listed as CoE property are considered non hunting areas.

People bow hunt college campuses for population control all across the East coast. But are they afraid some idiot is going to slock a hiker? If thatís the case, require Bowhunters Ed certification for a permit and have a qualifier like Hagerman used to.

Next time Iím out Iíll take a photo of one still out there that has been damaged, there is even a sign next to it saying who it belongs to.

Pretty sure other USACE land in the area allows hand spreading, not sure why they donít.

Only thing wrong with that attire is the boots. I wear rubber boots. And no badge. You can ask my local boys about me running through briers in shorts and rubber boots.

Agree, not a good day, but I guess it is better to be alive and hanging upside down than to be laying dead (or paralyzed) on the ground. Good thing that they were wearing a harness. Hope that they are ok.
