Wich do You prefure ? Ecaped HF Hogs that yagh threw some corn out & they come a runnen... Or... Wild Hogs were ya gotta go ta them....

My first hog hunts were on lease... Less than a buck a day, chance ta hunt hogs 24-7-365... Deer season, like most, sat in stand, & wait, chance for deer or hog ta grill & chill... After deer season, did the caveman hunt.. slinger pistal on hip, flash light off, wait by fresh hog sign of them rooting up... Hogs usualy make some noise, whin feeding... Then ease twards em ta pistal range... The other leases were on, didnt have hog's.. So down by creek , put little food plot & pvc corn feeders, took few hogs... WMA openef up down Rd.. Did archery, deer&hog hunts, no baiting... Then the three months after deer season of all legal meens hog hunts... Those & caveman hunts were my favoret.. huntsolo 90% of time... Just not able too like in better days.... Best wishes ta all on upcoming hunts... flag

I like sitting in the stand. Where we are its to thick to sneak up on them and if there is more than one the odds really are not in your favor.

cheers cool, you rely on your trap for majority of hog control ? Been in some thick stufff... Took my Kentucky .45 on hunt at WMA heard hogs in thick undergrowth, got within pistal range, but rifle, specialy & kentucky is not best for manuvering in thick stuff.. rofl next day went back with my .44 cal black powder revolver ta smoke em out... Again in right place right time, bang unfortunatly, hogs seen were on a trail been brushhogged & had wrong weapon.. Been using cam here ta monitor & then throw out corn... Not as in good a shape as usdta be in me 40's... Best wishes on trap... Seen were on one thread. Day OP gonna set trap, hogs didn't show.... As experts say they'll be back flag

Colt.45, what's with your two posts in this thread, it's almost like two different people wrote them....first one was scattered and full of typos and grammar issues, second one was almost normal fluent English....almost like you try hard to sound redneck when you really aren't as redneck as one would think.... confused2

Maybe ur brain wasn't ternd on as gud in the murnin as it wuz fur the secnd post??

Colt.45, don't take this as an attack on your grammer! I was just pointing out your posts on the this thread seemed a little different, as if written by two separate people.

First thought was a little too much of the bottle early in the morning, but didn't want to accuse you of doing anything like that. trout
Then thought it might be you were just foggy in the morning sometimes like I am, I need more sleep all the time it seems. coffee
Then I thought maybe you were working through the android and it wasn't giving you any help as I know sometimes I have typos and bad sentence structure when I am typing on my phone. hammer
Then I thought maybe pappy just told you to write the way you talk, since I tend to do the same, and I think that's the best answer...maybe. cheers

either way, keep up the good work and keep after them hogs. As they always say, they'll be back, and so will we.

Colt I enjoy your post bud...I can usually read them pretty easy so not sure what that says about me muyloco...I enjoy driving the back roads where I live and spot them eating crops and get out and sneak up on them. I've got permission to hunt most of all the fields so when I know the hogs are hitting the farmers fields I usually ride around every evening looking for them. Once again I'm gonna state that I have permission to hunt these fields so I'm not road hunting nor trespassing. Just drive around till I find them then sneak up on them and shoot.

I have a lease that unfortunately is too far to hunt a lot, especially when those dang skeeters are thick, but also has only very sporadic hogs on it. Best way my son and I like to hunt those pesky hogs is by spotting them with thermal gear and stalk up to them, then shoot as many as possible. Rarely get the opportunity though, fun when it comes together. Have shot a hog from a blind once, but during deer season. During non-deer season, it is take em anyway we see em. My son and I really enjoy hunting hogs, getting up close and personal with them in the night when they can't see us but we can see them, never had any hogs come regularly enough to hunt from a blind or sit and wait for them, always sporadic showings. Dang toys make it fun, I would imagine doing it they way you (colt.45) used to sneaking up with a pistol in the dark was a good cardio workout, nothing gets the blood pumping more than being real close to wild hogs. up cheers flag

My absolute favorite is a tree stand in the middle of the woods in the middle of the night. It goes from quiet to the sound of hogs and no light. I enjoy the thermal hunts but not as much adrenaline.

My favorite way is when you accidentally run into them .. whether it's walking to the blind or driving down roads.

Since the bastages tear up my creek bottom, fences and anything else they want, I just hunt them anyway I can.

I always carry a rifle or pistol while on my 4wheeler around the ranch so if the opportunity presents itself....

When we are doing contract eradication, we usually cruise around on very quiet 4wheelers as we cover 1000's of acres. We have help on other 4wheelers with radios, GPSs and trailers as chase vehicles to haul them out.

I sometimes stalk but my 60+ YO legs and back don't like that so much any more....makes the 4wheeler a welcome addition....LOL!

I do most of my serious hunting to give meat to friends from a tall box blinds setup 100 yards from feeder.

I also have some best Buds with very well trained dogs that is an absolute pump to do. Probably my favorite as it's a hands on experience and fast and furious some times!

And reading Colt.45s posts is always entertaining!

rofl cheers know what ya meen bout aches & pains, tis
nothen ta laugh at... At OSBWMA walken around was easy part, good thearopy, get off ATV trails, go at own pace, nice & slow, person be supprised what ya miss on ATV... High-tech is nice, faster is better.. If had ATV could get back out ta areas were only the muyloco people like me will venture on foot... Sure would beat back-packing hogs out... backstaps, quarters.. When ya huntsolo rofl i stink, work up that sweat, its a jungle out their... Your body will deturmine weather ta shoot or not... WMA has limited months ta hunt, as far as i know no night hunts for hog's, comepared ta surrounding privet land were its 24-7-365 pressure, so if ya know were ta look, & do your homework, can be some great hog hunten... Had several videos in public hunting section... No were near as high-tech as videos of NV & Thermal videos, enjoy watchen em, they make it look so easy.... Even on bad days like taday, makrs ya wanna jump up & go... rofl ya'll keep after em, they'll be back... Safe hunten... flag

Me and my boys hunt an area that is archery only. Hogs of course are all nocturnal there. Too thick to try and stalk them when he hear them. We've tried many times and there's just too many sticks etc, making it hard to be quiet especially since it is at night. We hand throw some corn and wait. We hunt way more than we kill, but it is a blast!! Hog hunting with a bow without a feeder is definitely hunting!!
