Shot a sow last night on Ft Hood that had a tag in her ear. Called the GW and he took down my info and passed on the tag number and location I killed her to natural resources. They called this morning and thanked me for providing the info and said itís a program being ran to track hog movement and to see if different hogs stay with their sounders they were released in or something g. She was pregnant and by herself. Spotted her 400 yards away and stalked to within 30 yards before dropping her. Thought it was pretty cool.

That is pretty cool. I would really be interested in what they learn about the hogs through the program.

So the fetuses had hair on them? If so, I wonder if she was close to birthing, which might account for her being off by herself.

No natural resources department just said they would provide the information to the college students doing the research. I may call back and try to get some more info.

Thanks for sharing ST. If I get one with a tag, I'll call it in. Before this thread I was likely to ignore it.

"to see if different hogs stay with their sounders they were released in "

Am I missing something, do we really need more hogs released? I know it is for research but dang. Years ago they were releasing hogs on WMAs for more hunting which just populated more hogs through out lots of Texas. We have enough than you.

I hope they were catching/trapping sounders tagging then releasing in the area.

Either way more hogs for Sapper to hunt, go get'em Sapper

Its college kids I'm assuming they are studying to become biologist or something and needed to participate in some sort of study but who knows. These were hogs trapped on Ft Hood and released back onto Ft Hood. They did it in groups. They put a radio collar on one hog and the rest get ear tags. I don't think they will actually learn much they don't already know.

I guess they learned they are getting shot. Did the tag have contact info? I have never heard of that before, thought maybe it was an escaped domestic.

You need to save em like bands. Cool trophy.


One shot is all it should take.

Its a program only on Ft Hood the hunting guideline book they hand out says to not shoot the ones with collars but if you shoot one with an ear tag to just get the location, approx weight and sex and turn that info into the Natural Resources Department at ft Hood. I kept the tag

I guess you could prank the college kids by getting one of the collars and dropping it in the back of someones truck. even more fun if they are going to colorado or somewhere else.

that would have em thinkin for a while. roflmao

That is something you don't see everyday. It would be nice to know what they are studying.
