I know in Grayson county it's archery only for deer hunting
But my question is, can you hunt hogs in Grayson with a rifle, or bow only?
I can't find anything about hog hunting there

Not that I know of...however the Hagarman WMA Lottery hog hunt allows shotguns using lead free ammo. I've been told there is some funkylanguage about how many projectiles coming out of the barrel is waht the Law sez that prevents rifles from being used ...dunno and I lived there for 11 years ...but the County closed the only gun range too politics politics politics is a way of life in Grayson County.

The TPW GW station at Texoma is on the south side of the Little Mineral Marina complex & accessed by turning off Hwy 289 one street south of the Marina's turnoff & go one long block to the stop sign & turn left...the GW office is at the bottom of that hill on the left side in the old Coast Guard building, and that road deadends into the south side of the cove that LM Marina is on...but the TPW boathouse is one street back where the road splits to the left and deadends into the water and where you can find folks sometimes to talk to if there is no one at the office.

I'd also suggest you call Best Pawn in Sherman and ask them as they are largest gun shop in Grayson County.

Not in Hagerman, just outside Whitewright
On Grayson/Fannin county lines, like the back of the property is right on the border of both

Fully legal! As mentioned Hagerman NWR is off limits. Beyond that though it is 100% legal. Just for reference in the future anyone can look up the Warden section on TPWD website and find a Warden(s) by county. Best of luck this year!

??? Hagarman near "WHITEWRIGHT" or "WHITESBORO" ???

Never knew Hagarman's 11,700 acres that wrap around a large portion of Big Mineral Arm at Lake Texoma and north of WhitesBORO and is managed by the US Fish & Wildlife Dept, was anywhere south of Hwy 82, much less anywhere east of Sherman, 11 miles south of Bells on Hwy 69 like WhiteWRIGHT is ...I learned how to get there from my house near Little Mineral Marina on the east side of Preston Peninsula (facing the 2400 acre abomination called The Schuler Development that borders the south fenceline of Gran'Pappy's Marina) about 10-11 miles north of the Refuge Rd turnoff when I was helping plant, maintain and monitor Bluebird nest box's couple times a month in early '16...an activity that I highly encourage folks to get involved with to learn about a part of nature I never knew existed or cared about...find a great guy named Bert Garcia (the former US Attorney for Puerto Rico) and he'll set you up with a mentor.

My mentor was a guy named Don, a crusty old guy a little older than I am who also teaches other interested groups with access to a suitable locations around the state how to build nest box's, set them out correctly, maintain them and monitor these birds so tney increase their breed despite the ever shrinking natural environement.

If I was still living at Texoma I'd of continued to expand my participation in the Friends of Texoma organization that is the sponser of the Bluebird Project and many other similar nature enhancement projects...check'em out on their website, and get to see 1st hand the natural wonders that Lake Texoma has to offer...and where all the critters of every kind are and when to see them 1st hand.

If you are talking about the Schuler Development, they've already begun. It's the sorriest, most underhanded thing I've seen done by politician's and businessmen alike, since ever! A lot of bow hunters, hog hunters, coyote hunters and duck hunters lost a lot of prime real estate. It still burns me up. That was one of the reasons I bought the house I live in now.....to be able to hunt within 5 minutes of home.
Sorry for the rant and hijack, but I'm still mad

2B...when we moved in May of '16 down here to Palestine I could occasionaly see dirt movers from the shoreline in front of my place on the west side of Little Mineral just south of the the Elks Club/Little Mineral Marina area, working on or near the ridge just south of the GranPappy's fenceline ummm behind & south of GP's boat ramp...until some dodo driver let one get away from him down that steep arsed hill and had to be pulled out of a pond with a crane. Gonna take a LOT of dirt flying & ongoing legal work to convert this natural area to a "Frisco Goes to the Lake" kinda ready to build on drive by's.

A neighbor who should know after cleaning up the Loe Family legal mess mentioned the years long ongoing EPA Lawsuits at Tanglewood kinda roadblocks to get past too, with the 3 golf courses & adjacent high rise hotels being planned for the original 2400 acre Schuler area...and that ongoing lawsuit at Tanglewood is over fertilizer pollution runoff into the lake & and it's Dallas drinking water quality usage has been ongoing for several years...but could get resolved now by the new EPA head in Washington who has a history if suing the EPA to relax the regulations over Oil Co's pollution restrictions as the State of Oklahoma AG...wonder what he'll do with the how many dozen ???? really old oil wells in the middle of Big Mineral ....that is in the middle of the Hagarman 11,700 acre Federal project...scary too to think about loosing Hagarman to oil pollution, or what it'll cost to keep Dallas's drinking water from becoming another Flint Michigan...

I never sought or kept any hard info on the Schuler development except for a CD disc handout that the Corp gave out at the Public Meeting, and have since given it away, except as curiosity as we were planning on leaving Grayson County PDQ ASAP for a laundry list of reasons that I didn't believe were ever going to get resolved with any potential for an upside if we were to stay anywhere at Lake Texoma or in the County...but my bud's around town were dropping tidbits of insights, and were already talking about the MUD water & sewer systems that were actively in planning, and next on the list was for Denison to get Denison voters to signoff on the addition to the City Limits and add the expense and management of running two different taxing entities yadda yadda yadda.

Bottom line... I'm guessing there will be nothing to actually buy & build on will happen for another several years. If you are in a hurry to buy/build there is the land project at the far west end of the lake n'west of Whitesboro and waterfront waterview lots could be had 2 years ago at Frisco/Prosper prices.

City of Denison is the big winner in the chase for more tax base, and has about 23,000 population to Sherman's 37k right now last I looked at the hwy City sign boards ...and the Schuler area by it self, in a 20 year build out, is expected to add a permanent base population of double + that 22K figure @ ummm 50+k, with another 30K of remote property owners & guests added for Holiday & summer weekends...or a total impact of about 3/4's of the total 125k Grayson County population as of the 2010 Census ...all crammed into a +/-3000 acre development...with no timates for spillover population growth out side f the Schuler Project

Denison's new High School that was just recently completed, had an orignal site location of the northwest corner of Hwy 75 & and the FM 84 caddycorner across from the Toyota/Nissan/Honda store to where it was actually built south og Hwy 75 on hwy 91 just west of Hwy 69 a little north of Denison....to preserve that 1st site for a retail and hotel complex.

Lots of other major changes imminently in store for Grayson County coming PDQ, and if I were 30 years younger I'd be digging in to get into a line of business to take advantage of all this new growth....think "Frisco at the Lake" kinda thing.
