All the flood gates are open on Richland chambers and the Trinity is already 12' above flood stage downstream of the spillway.

I planned on doing some pig hunting Th, Fri, and Sat, but it looks like I may need my jon boat for that... The back half of our place will be underwater. There are lots of small high spots... I'm wondering if it would be worth scouting these out? Might find some sounded hold up on high ground.

Don't shoot a hole in the boat! rifle grin

I have zero experience with hunting from a boat, but couldn't pass up giving the obvious advice.

I have never tried this (don't have a boat), but I would give it a shot. It's better than sitting at the house.

Yup!

And inquiring minds want to know how big those holes have to be before they become problematic! grin

The Pigs of Lewisville Lake pretty much debunk the theory that you'd find a sounder of pigs hold up on high ground.

Pigman hunted pigs from an air boat in Lousiana at high speed.

It'll be fun either way

Shoot the hogs on dry land, not in the water. Not if you want to recover them, anyway.

Well...river is showing 12' above Flood stage. My Stand blind near the river wiil be very close to having water in the blind. The ground blinds are probably gone and hip wades would not help in getting to the tree blinds. I think I'm giving the boat a try.
