Hi, there.

Still new to hunting, but I am after hogs in south east Texas pine/hardwoods.

Does seeing more deers mean hog numbers are not good. Also, I have not seen a snake yet, but heard my hunting place have lots of snakes.

Deers + snakes = no hogs? I would like to know your thoughts.

Thanks.

Good question, Navasot.

There are lots of foot prints - I am not able to tell deer print from hog print yet, but will research. Thank you for reminding me.

I did run into a hog up close, guessing it weighs 100+ lbs. I am hoping seeing one means a few more in the area.

If there is one there are plenty more. deer tracks have pointed ends and almost look like a tear drop. Bucks will have dew claws doe wont. Pigs will be more of a dull oval shape. Small ones will be just a print big ones get heavy enough to show dew claws

Thanks Hogman. That's what I read, hog eats snakes.

I have 2 hog bait rolling barrels up for months now, no action so far. Saw many deers and only 1 hog makes me wonder.

ahh... got you..

I will concentrate on deer and consider a hog bonus for now. My bait barrel should stand a better chance in Feb/March before grass turns green.

Well I have way too many hogs and still have lots and lots of rattlesnakes, so I'm not sure they eat that many snakes. I also have an abundance of roadrunners and still have lots of rattlesnakes. If you are in Texas, I guarantee you have snakes. As for hogs, Deer, hogs and snakes all co-exist and while deer will generally not feed along with hogs, I see them do so at times, keeping their distance of course. I also see deer come in to feed just minutes after hogs have left the vicinity. Have you tried putting out a game camera? While deer are nocturnal, hogs tend to be even more nocturnal in my experience. Seems like 95% of my hog sightings on game cameras is after dark.

Great advise. I will get game cameras to know for sure.

I will also adjust my plan according to the 95% hog sightings being after dark. All my hunting attempts are during daytimes.
