At LBJ shotguns are allowed - no centerfire rifles. I have been out there every summer/fall since getting to Texas, and I have not seen a hog yet, but I have seen a bunch of does and a few small bucks. Unit 18 I believe was where I saw most activity. Admittedly, I have not been out there in a few of months, so that unit might be completely dead for all I know.

I have talked to a few people I've met out there in the parking lots, and everyone has always been really nice. If you see someone I would introduce yourself (assuming it is in the parking lot!).

Good luck!

Conner, If its shotgun only, and no rifles, i would suggest looking at getting a rifled barrel/scope for your shotgun and shoot sabot slugs (sabot slugs are made for rifled shotgun barrels). u can sight in and hunt on shotun only like this out to 150 yards or 200 with practice. i would suggest buying a few different types of sabot slugs and going to the range to see which particular type of sabot slug is most accurate in your rifled barrel.

if u are shooting a smooth bore shotgun barrel i would look at brenneke slugs.

if u are set on buck shot, i would suggest the federal premium 00 buck shot with flight control wad. it groups tighter at farther distances than the vast majority of other shotgun buck shot loads. I would also keep your shots under 35 yards with buck shot.


Fast paced gregarious society forgets the healing power of solitude. It's worked thousands of years. Casting a line/gazing into a campfire/sitting in a blind after a long week is medicine for the soul. The serenity and peacefulness of it all is majestic.

I'll second the Federal Premium 00 buck. Works well for me.

You may use buckshot in the general forest but not in the WMA'S.

Just got off the phone with Game Warden McGee. Confirmed no restriction on shotgun and centerfire is ok as well. The Game Warden is easily reached and super friendly. Good luck and be SAFE.

Center fire rifle IS NOT OKAY on the LBJ Grasslands, it is on Caddo Grasslands but not LBJ.
