Hello, so as I said am an active duty service member who is currently on a rotation in Korea. But I was really hoping that when I get back home to central Texas in a few months (February-ish) someone might be willing to help me get started and learn more about hunting, as I've never really had a chance to learn in the past, particularly hog and eventually Deer. I've been scouring these forums and the internet as a whole every chance I get but I feel that's only going so far compared to experience and those with it. Thanks.

Send me a message when you get home. I do not have hogs (and do not want any) but I can show you some above average deer hunting..

If you're returning near the Austin area, PM me when you arrive so I can meet you. We can discuss a hog hunt on my lease.

i dont have land but i know a few training areas that hold hogs the are closed right now do the the crash one of my retried buddy use to be a guid out there if you want to learn ft hood give me a pm I am still looking for a farmer in the area that is willing to let us hunt i have not found one. the down side to FT hood hunting is all there rules on top of the states. plus they close down areas for months at a time if you have a feeder there you cant get to it till its open again. my buddy is in this situation his blind and feeder is out there. the sad part is all the unguided area still have full deer quotes. i really hope they open them soon. are 21 and 22 has quit a few from what other hunters have told me. but i have night red lens lights and know the area pretty well I am just getting in to hog hunting i have yet to get one do to fthood closing down. and not having land but for guys who not have money for a lease you can hunt hood for 60$ a year it just takes a lot of getting use to. I still have my hopes up about meeting someone who will let a broke Disabled Vet hut for hogs

Yah, I didnt know there was a crash, since I've been in korea the last 7 or so months. I tried getting in a TA last year but at the time didn't have the truck for it and got discourged fighting the phone lines for a reservation.
