Got some pictures of this guy at our place in Kinney co., hes the 1st one ive seen.







He showed up while i was sitting in the stand it was pretty funny watching him climb the hog panels, he went up like a ladder the kicked his leg over and climbed down it in reverse very slowly. I had another pic where one of the whitetails was eating a foot from him apparently there buddies. eeks333

Loc: Abilene or on the road...
We see more killed along the road than we ever see alive in the wild. Nice pics.

IME they seem to like protein and when you start feeding it they will show up if they are any around.

killed a couple on our place. I was worried about the dog tangling with them and neighbor said they eat the crown out of the oak trees. We kill everyone we see. Now if they would eat cedars, I might reconsider up

I kill 7-10 every year at my camp. They will eat cedars up our way and every other kind of tree we have. My walker is trained to tree them and knows not to engage. They are not as bad as coons for eating bait but are hell on the trees. I typically use the 12 gauge with 1 7/8 oz turkey load in #6 if in a tree or the 17HMR if on the ground although the last one took a 165 grain pill from the .308 as that happened to be what I had handy.

Watched one climb in the pen exactly how you're describing last year. Was pretty funny to watch. we actually walked up to the pen once we were done hunting and he just sat in there and looked at us no more than 5 feet away. I bet those t-posts were fun to drive in the ground through all those rocks.

That looks like a young one in that pic. I have seen quite a few of them and used to kill 5 or so per year in Kendall County. The were really bad on trees in the winter months. They can move a lot faster than what you think.

I don't believe I'd shoot anything that eats cedar trees. Second only to Chinese Tallow trees as the most worthless tree in the state. IMHO.
Here is a pic of a Porcupine cutting thru camp!
