I had a lease near Ballinger for 18 years, the neighbor killed a couple hogs the first two years, then no hogs until the last year. Actually we only saw tracks the last year before I gave up the lease. Now, I hunt in East Texas where we have more hogs than deer. We never pass up a shot on a hog, but we are definitely losing this war.

I hunted on a friends ranch between Brady and Brownwood for 15 years and no hogs there. It was on the San Saba McCullough County line. They cycle on our lease in NW Burnet County. Killed 30+ 3 years ago then few for a couple now we have plenty. I think we have killed 10 this season and I passed on big boar.

Far northern Mills county - no hogs, yet. It’s rocky sheep/goat country. The hogs aren’t far away though.

Western Hamilton county - covered up in pigs until deer season started. Now they vanished. I don’t understand how fast they can “cycle” or “migrate” on or off a property in such large quantities.

You'll regret letting that pig walk.

We hunted 3-4 days solid over the thanksgiving holidays, zero pictures of hogs, zero sightings of hogs, haven't even seen any rooting. Talked to the hunters across the county road from us and they say they are covered up in hogs.

Late summer early fall I was covered up with them in East Texas. As guns start going off, they chose up sides and left. I have one bunch of really small piglets show up at one of my feeders middle of the night about once a week.

I'm sure after season and I plant my spring early summer food plots they will come in and root it up like they have before.


Thanks, Billy

I took this picture in late October(Erath county) from my deer blind and probably saw 50-60 in 5-6 different groups. We were getting mostly hog pictures at feeder with deer in background. I started hunting/killing hogs every time I seen one. My camera had over 1000 pictures a week ago (7 day period) and less than 10 hog pics. Throwing lead at them helps a lot. We have no access to our lease after deer season and not until almost September, and the land owner come down very little since he has no livestock on it and lives about 50 miles away. They take over and become very bold with no human presence. I even killed a pig at my feeder on opening morning and shooting every hog I have seen has probably hurt my deer hunting, but so be it. If your not part of the solution , your part of the problem. My season has become more about killing hogs this year and less about killing a nice buck. My wife even asks me if I killed a pig when I get home instead of did I get a deer.

I hunt a lease in Comal county that has yet to have any. Seen two in 3 years. To be honest I kind of missed having a hog to shoot at every now and then.

It took us 25 years but we finally got rid of all the hogs at the ranch in South Texas but we did it. Same story, kind of missed them.

Wife killed a big sow Saturday in Mountain home and it felt good to skin a pig again.

I don’t want to be overrun with them but a few every now and then is welcome target practice


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

We are in the very SW corner of Concho. Got a hog on camera 6 years ago (only 1 picture)...never saw it again. Got a group on camera this year in a few pictures and a member saw them one night and took some shots at them...blood but no recovery. Have not seen them on camera or in person since. I've seen them on Ft. McKavett road and on the county roads a few times in all my years, but thankfully not many.

Agree it might be nice to have some to shoot at every now and then, but overall think I'd rather not deal with them at all.

I’m in Runnels county about five miles south of Ballinger on 1100 acres and for the nine years I have been on the lease we have only had them on camera a couple of times and take maybe five. This year I have had a sounder of 20 on camera at one time and another stand has had them at all time of the day. As I was head to the stand on Sunday I came across two on the county rd and they got away before I realized what they were and could get out. Then I checked my cards when I got home and I had two outside the feeder pen at 6:00 when it was still to dark to see. I’m looking for hog lights now!

far ne fannin county, I live in a target rich environment. grin 8 feeders out now, 5 blinds on 8' stands and one on 12'.
sort of like the old pong game, shoot them out of one blind one night and head to the other end of the property the next.
have even shot a few off the patio.
