Next weekend I will be going hog hunting but as I was looking at the regulations for hunting hog on lake lavon I noticed that they only allow now and shotgun (no size larger than #2) would a shot size #2 take down a boar? I don't have a bow so that's why i am curious.

No buckshot. Slugs are allowed.

"Rifles, airguns, handguns, slugs, <#2 shot, and muzzleloaders are prohibited. All applies to all hunting area unless specially noted above."

The above quote was taken directly from here: https://lavonlakehunting.tamu.edu/policy

It appears that you cannot use slugs.. So, it looks like 00, or 000 buck shot is okay to use there. You might want to read through the information at the link I provided and see if you can make better sense of it than I can.

Hunt there quite a bit and have run into GW several times. No issues with ammo (slugs).

It's slugs only and north of 380. You can go by the station at the dam and verify. You'll need a permit. GW's have been out in force when I've been out there.

Make sure you look at a map and know what areas you are hunting in. As Zoedog posted, areas 6-13 you can use smooth bore slugs, everywhere else is archery only. It doesn't matter if you shoot a hog with 4 shot, that is illegal.

I did get checked one night by the GW in the archery only area and he told me that we could use slugs. I didn't argue, but called the COE office the next day and asked them. They said they would let him know he was wrong.
