I was out at Luminant 607 WMA in Robertson County today for one last hunt and ended up shooting a huge sow. Don't know the weight, but she was big and heavy. I managed to drag her about 100 yards before deciding that maybe she should go out in pieces.

I drove out early this morning, walked in, set up my base at a brush blind I'd built earlier, and headed around to likely areas for some still-hunting. Was headed back toward the blind around lunchtime when I heard a bunch of movement a ways off but coming my way. I'd heard coyotes howling earlier so my first thought was it was them, but then I started seeing movement through the trees and it was a sounder of hogs. I picked out a spot where I knew I'd be able to make a clean shot, and when the biggest hog trotted through, I fired. It took three standing freehand shots to finish her off. I used my dad's old Remington 742 in .30-06, shooting 150-grain bullets.

I have a deer, a coyote, a javelina and now a hog from public hunts. Does that count as a Grand Slam?

Any harvest on public land is a bonus.

I'm in, even though I don't remember ever seeing a turkey on the WMAs I hunt. Is there any place to do a walk-in hunt for mule deer, or is that draw only?

I got it

Deer (white or mule) pig (feral or peccary) and dog (not domestic)

That should cover the whole state and everbody is included without driving for days.
