I know most of the hunters across the state have to deal with hogs. What I want to know is, who doesn’t have hogs and what area are you hunting.

We have 660 acres in Concho county, and we have never seen a hog on it in 13 years. I guess we are in a sweet spot between the Concho river and the live oaks about 6 miles south of us.

My uncles brother has a lease in Water Valley and says that they haven't had any hogs since they've been on the property.

We did not have many hogs on our place (Stephens County) for many years. We might shoot a few in a season. This year we are covered in them. We've already killed at least 10 or more. I think it just depends on your location and the time of the season.

Runnels county between Ballinger and Miles, north of HWY67, no hogs on our place, but to the east of us we see the hogs several times a season.

We hunt between Winters and Ballinger and we're covered with them. I see at least five everytime I'm hunting.

I guess they move around for different reasons. A couple of years ago, my lease suddenly went from lots of hogs to zero hogs. Now we're covered up again.

They move around a lot, either to find a better food source or to prevent being a food source. My experience has been that once you start shooting them, they move on for a while. If your neighboring counties/towns have them, you will have them soon.

That ^ ^ ^ is a TRUE BLESSING and A GIFT FROM GOD.
I'd literally fall on the ground and give thanks.

Sincerely. Not kidding at all.

We've owned our place in southern Brown County for just shy of 6 years. First 4 years, every once in awhile a hog or two would show up on cameras, but only occasionally. Two years ago we started seeing signs of rooting, so I set out a few traps. Trapped 4 boars over a few months, and then nothing until about a month ago. Bingo...covered. Will be applying maximum pressure with hopes they move on, but reports from neighbors are the same - seeing multiples on every camera and every hunt. I do not care if it ruins our deer hunting, we will shoot every hog on sight.

We’re covered up in Lee county, not unusual to see 30+ at one time, I will be shooting everyone I have a chance at this weekend. I also have a new green light I will be installing tomorrow for night hunting at one of my feeders. Feel blessed if you don’t have any!

At least 3 bunches on 133 acres. And then the lone boars. I shot a boar last weekend that I looked for a couple of minutes and then went to the house.

We have plenty of hogs on our Jacksboro property. And yes, I feel blessed not to have them in Concho county.

Similar here. From 195x to 2018 we never saw a hog. In 1998 the coyote helicopter got two from a brushy area; in 2007 we caught one in a snare. Other than that, zip/zilch/nada. Opening morning last year I saw two in the pickup headlights while going to the blind. Fellow hunter next door gets 6-8 on game camera. FF to 2020, I've got 12-15 different hogs on camera (including piglets) and am building traps and actively hunting them. 600 acres.

We're covered up. I shot a pretty grey-silver sow yesterday morning. She ran my deer off so she had to pay the toll fee.

Anyone near San Angelo having hog problems, I would love to help you out. Off weekdays so I won't get in the way of your weekend hunts.

The entire forest floor where I was hunting last year in the SHNF in Walker County was torn up by hogs. This year, the same area shows no sign of hogs at all. I assumed hogs were a permanent fixture of land after they appear in an area, but evidently, I'm wrong. Even so, I was pleasantly surprised the deer in the area didn't have to compete for food with the hogs.


Retired!

Right now I have more than I've ever seen. This is the year that I was going to get back to planting wheat in a couple of places. Decided there was no point to it.

We are in duval county. We penned 1/2 of our feeders about 3-4 years ago because we were overrun with hogs. Now we seldom get pictures of them much less see them.

Northern Coke county we are covered up with them. I have seen them about 90% of the time I go hunt now. See them while riding the atv as well. Since 2007 when we had no hogs at all our deer numbers are down probably 60-70%.
