You need a license to hunt hogs if it is for recreational purposes. If you are hunting hogs due to them destroying privet property no licence is needed - I should have been more clear in my response
True but only if you Fit this description:
"Depredating feral hogs, if a landowner (resident or non-resident) or landowner's agent or lessee is taking feral hogs causing depredation on the landowner's land."
We had this discussion with the GW in a Hunter Education Instructor course.
What it boiled down to is if you are the land owner, agent or lessee on the place no license is required if those are not the case better have a license.
Bottom line if you have a license there is no question if hog hunting is legal on private property in Texas.
