I see lots of signs and had a few sightings but its tough to get a shot on those suckers. I usually see them in the last 10 minutes of shooting time when they are moving and it is hard to see them. But I love it in the off season!

The only info you're gonna get is from going out there and scouting. I've hunted there a bunch and never seen a hog or hog sign. Maybe im not hunting where the hogs are...i hear they are closer to the lake.

You will need to buy a $48 APH permit from TPWD and that will allow you access to hunt public lands and SHNF. They will send you a book about the rules you must obey to be able to hunt and then you are ready to go. BS rules like no baiting and only hunting during daylights hours. Those are your 2 biggest hurdles and rules to obey. But it is fun and tough for sure. Lots of info in prior threads.

I just went down to my usual spots last week to go hunt and after an hour or so I just went back home. The whole place was flooded so I wasnt in the mood to go get my waders and go wadefishing in the forest.

What type hog hunt? Have hunted hogs with several during Jan-March all legal meens hog hunts... One forsure is on here, once in a great while at OSBWMA... Last get tagether we had no luck.... Had found several hog beds, bout two weeks before with son--in-law, but we were short on time... Floods push alot of deer & hogs out, that use WMA ta escape the gun deer & 24-7-365 presure of surounding privet land... Kinda works both ways... i've given out invites in past, guns tis pud up... Or would enjoy the company, can get wet at OSBWMA, tis archery only at end of March... Best wishes... flag
