Hey how's it going? Well I'm new to hunting hog's but I really want to start hog hunting. I'm pretty much restricted to public hunting lands so I'm just trying to get some opinions on what sign to look for and should I be stalking or climbing a tree and waiting for some bacon to walk my way. Any advice is welcome! and thanks in advance.

If you didn't mind the drive to white oak wildlife managment it's over run with hogs and they have a dog season.

White Oak used to be run over with hogs. Haven't seen any since bow season began. Also all of the bottoms were pretty much flooded last weekend and they don't like you parking on the highway to access good hunting areas. Last years hog hunts there were an absolute bust for hunters and dogs. The years of drought have really hurt the acorn crop from what I've been told.

Cooper WMA would probably be better for pigs. Historically it has been good year after year and access is a little easier. We will probably start there Saturday and the more the hunters the better. Keeps pigs moving. Its shotgun only.

Colt45 may recommend a better WMA.

Cooper is good, I have seen many there. Old Sabine Bottom is really good also. any legal means right now.

Thanks for all the insight and info yall. I was thinking the south part of t-wok (duck cove) this weekend since it's only about an hour away plus my grandma lives in terrell and needs some lights changed so 2 birds one stone lol.
I went to caddo nat grasslands 5 times for deer season but never saw a deer or pig. I did see a bit of sign out there but not much. Then my dad and I made the trip down south to luminant tx for the last day of deer season and dang there was fresh deer and pig sign everywhere but it was pretty dang swampy but never saw anything moving. I did come across 6 piles of pig bones though

Luminant was pretty nice. There is a big clear cut right down the middle of but theres a creek/river that was not passable for me. Maybe it was up from the rain but the clear cut was swampy and torn up from pigs. I cut back on a game trail and instantly saw fresh deer crap and followed the trial till I saw a nice tree to climb and waited up there for about 5 hours after that my butt was numb and my feet frozen so I called it a trip. Next time I'm going to park on the south side and hunt up if the wind is right.

Hunting hogs on public land is not easy. You can not bait, you have to wear orange, the hogs are nocturnal and finding them during the day is not easy.

But for me that is what is rewarding about it. When something is easy you dont appreciate it as much. The Hard is what makes it great!

I know lewisville corp land has a lot of hogs, I have seen them during the day as well, hard part is that it is bow only and most of the time I find them I have to deal with idiots driving thru and messing up the hunt even though it is posted for no motor vehicles. nothing like walking in a mile seeing hogs in front of you and have them scared off before you can get a shot.
