Hello my hunter brotheren i have recently moved to the greatest state in the greater 48. Texas that is and Houston to be more exact. Well i have been hearing about this feral hog epidemic and im very eager to play my role. I currently have my hunter education certification and about 19 yrs of hunting experience.Extensive deer,waterfowl,upland birds and turkey hunting in FL, and MO. but im ready for some serious hog hunting and i have been told i moved to the right place. I would really like to go on a dog hunt with bowies but dusk/dawn/night time food plot and feeder hunts look like a blast. If anyone out there could help point me in the right direction or resource im on a limited budget and cannot afford guided hunts that are worth a car payment.I currently do not know anyone with private land and I would rather not hunt public land , safety for me is top priority.

I was just wondering about how many guys eat part of the pig or just leave it where it falls. What would be the ratio??

I live north of dallas and we have them in abundance.
We keep our freezers full and give them away when we can.
Sometimes we let them lay where they fall.
Most of the land owners are just happy to get rid of them.
BTW The meat is great. I like it better than store bought.
Get most of it ground, use it where i usually use ground beef.
Makes delicious hamburgers.

Shoot me a PM. We are going to do some hog hunts starting in Feb. You can do a 2 1/2 day hunt all for $75 and shoot all you want. Stands and feeders already in place. Located in E Tx. 3 to 4 hrs from Houston.

Get a utillity knife and cut it down the spine. Split them open and cut out the tenderlions. Use a utillity knife-razor blade. There hide will dull a knife in no just getting through there hide. best part is you get 2 huge chunks of meat you can slice up and throw right on the grill. Best part it's free!

Black hawk... Welcome to Texas !

If the hogs aren't knocking at your front door yet....give them time. Soon you won't be able to go to your mailbox before you kick one!

Hog prices remaining steady in Texas
“The demand has remained pretty steady,” said Allen Gilbert, sales manager of Frontier Meats in Fort Worth. “This is really the busy time of year because a lot of hunters are out in the field and are catching the hogs. We are seeing some that are in real good shape and others that are in real poor shape — it just depends on the range conditions.” Just like any other market, the price for live feral hogs fluctuates with the economy. Estimated prices for the live hogs starts at about $5 per head for animals that weigh from 50 to 59 pounds (nothing under 50 pounds is accepted); about 13 cents per pound for those in the 60 to 79 pound range; and about 25 cents per pound for hogs weighing 80 to 99 pounds.

Processors pay a premium of about 35 cents per pound, plus a $5 to $10 per head bonus, for hogs weighing 150 to 249 pounds; and any boar or sow topping 250 pounds brings in about 45 to 50 cents per pound plus at least a $10 per head bonus.

Washington State
I'm new to this forum, but I just got back from the Dallas area (Mesquite, Rowlett, Commerce, etc.) visiting my new in-laws and you could see the hog damage just by driving the main roads around Commerce. . .

. . .my new PaPaw said I should come back in the summer when I'm finished building my 6.8 AR15 and he'd hook me up with his neighbor who runs them with dogs all the time. . .suffice to say the first thing I did when I got home yesterday was to order my barrel, bolt, and carrier assembly!!! Now I just need to order the buttstock, lower parts, railed forearm, compensator, and scope and I'll be set. . .should be a really sweet hog gun. . .6.8 SPC built around a MegaMachine billet upper/lower reciever (M4 style with forward assist) and an AR15 Performance (one of the main developers of the caliber) 16" stainless steel barrel (from a PacNor blank), 9810 alloy SuperBolt and bolt carrier assembly. . .I'm chomping at the bit to get back in TX and shoot some hogs!!!

My $.02 on hogs. . .you'll never get rid of them. . .there are now small herds/packs being seen even up here in Washington state. . .mainly in the Wynoochee (sp???) area. . .the Washington Fish & Wildlife are hell-bent on eradicating them and want real time reports any time anyone sees them. . .that being said they are really tight lipped about them and won't pass info on about where they are. . .i.e. they deny their existence in WA state, but too many people have seen them for it not to be true. The terrain and environment up here would be ideal for them, but they would destroy the eco-system and our deer and elk populations would be devestated. . .would probably help the black bear and cougar population though. . .

. . .I have heard a lot about the difficulties of hunting in TX with all the hunting leases etc. and that was the #2 reason why my girl and I decided not to move down to TX. . .more than half of Washington is public land and the game is abundant. . .I don't want to move somewhere I will have to pay a ridiculous amount to get access to land or participate in canned hunts. . .

. . .not trying to be offensive because I really liked it while I was down there, just the access thing is ridiculous. . .I primarily only wanna hunt hogs and predators say maybe it wouldn't be as bad for me, but then again it sounds like it might be just as difficult especially with the sudden popularity of predator hunting. . .

. . .any tips for hunting the hogs in the Dallas area? I'm gonna get one of the 5-day non-resident hunting licenses while I'm down there and hopefully I'll get a hound hunt, but that's not guaranteed as of now.

Thanks!

If you have a facebook account do a search for Compadre Hunts, They offer reasonable rates on all their hunts. I know they have a place in Columbus, TX. just about an one hour drive from Houston. We got our fill of pork and excitement.

got a link to that video, please?
