Just how many hunters gonna be down @ public hunting land & doing some hog hunting ?
(Discussion) section gots me scratch thinken... Deer season tis a winding down & me go ta place for hog hunts..
confused2 since been on this forum seen lots of people wanted do hogs,... Responce has been, (hunters) do more damage than hogs...
i call bs, speaking for meself... Always took advantage of the OSBWMA 3months hog hunts.
Tried get others involved... Had many threads on it...
Tis Not an executive hunt, even with alien body parts, took me own pace bounce & had a blast...
Here, we have ice 🎣fishing, gettingvready for that after deer season... bang we just need the ice...
Best wish's...& like posted many a times.... WMA can be hot spots due ta limited hunting pressure, surrounded by 24-7-365 hunting pressure with all the high-tech avaliblebon privet land...
Going old school...
Ya can bet your boots i'd be out thar...

I been giving hogs,does and spikes a pass but with the cost of meat in general continuing to rise I may have to re-think that notion.

coolpics You must have better trail cams than mine...
Set one up, went back switched SD card bounce over 2,000 pic's...
bang wind blowing tall grass , had ta reset it...

cheers agree with the high price of meat, have mentioned that in several threads..
Rising prices of leases, then put in food plots, the corn, confused2 public land way cheaper...
Do it yourself hunts, up too many games played on leases...
We always did our own preperation...
Best wish's on hunts...

Yeah the trailcams are the cheap ones from Wally World($28). That way it doesn't hurt as bad if one gets stolen.Although I haven't had a pic of a human on trailcam this season.

cheers have put trail cam's out on OSBWMA never had pic's of hunters...

Think i have 7 of the walmart $28.00 cans, took black marker & camo them.
Bought two of the ones ($38.00) camo on sale for $28.00. bang one was a defect..
Bought few other (cam's) brands on sale...
Not alot of woods around here, just groves, around the farm places. Places we have permission, also let the slug /muzzle loader hunts... We do the archery, & pretty much dont hunt during that time...
[Linked Image]
One of the many pic's, some they are facing trail cam's... They leave em a lone...
We have several area's we can hunt, so depends on weather, & mix it up, so not ta over hunt...
Winter here been mild, lots of deer take threw slug/muzzleloader season... Here it's more about pudding
food food on the grill & every year it amazes me, as hard as they hunted, & the little bit of hiding, (woods) big bucks survive... Specaily with the in-line capable of reaching out (200yrds)... Seeing more & more stands put up like on the leases in texas ...

Best wish's swampthang on your hunts, may they be filled with awesome memorries...

Them boots dont look very warm that ol' boy is wearing. I thought you yankees knew how to dress for the cold? grin It was 28 degress the other day when I headed into the woods. My toes were like icicles when I left,need to upgrade my boots as well.

Swampthang: You need some better boots. I spend Nov-March in my Muck boots (Arctic Sport), all below freezing. If it drops below 0, I switch to my Muck Arctic Pro which are good down to -60!!!!! Nothing ends a hunt faster than cold feet.

cheers agree with ya swampthang good boots/socks are a vital roll in keeping warm in cold weather..
As mentioned in OP "bang we just need the ice... We have been have unusually warm weather...
Lakes here have been open till this last light dusting of ❄ snow..

The hunter is doing a muzzleloader hunt, here we have party hunts, dont make diff who shoots, just as long as thar an open tag... He could be a (pusher/driver) getting deer ta move towards (poster's)...
Also NO snow on ground.. Pic not the best.. temps around freezing, doesnt have date it was taken... & he tis dressed warm... Wind play's big factor in temps here..

These are the boots i wore this morning... plus good socks..
[Linked Image]
For ice 🎣ing, your @ times standin on ice, we lay cardboard or carpet down, & even with heater your feet can get cold... i use a different pair boots...

Hunting hogs OSBWMA winter times, & wading threw water, wore garage sale tennies.. Often used pvc pipe glue & ducktape ta hold em tagether... Grew up walken ta school in cowboy boots, & windbreaker in winter... as long as kept moving stayed warm.. Conditioned myself ta the cold weather, the warm weather tore my equator up... Every one temperature gauge tis differant...
Best wish's...

I guess I'm gonna need 2 pair of boots,one for when temps are above 40 deg and one for when temps are predicted to be below 40 deg. I just hate to spend a bunch of money on heavily insulated boots when I will only use them a few times per year. I been dropping a couple of those "Hot Hands" packets into the toes of my boots before I put them on,it works but it's kind of a pain in the butt.

Big bucks in hunting, that's the real hog problem...
Whin people offer ta help, they get told thar the problem...

That's why i helped out @ public land (WMA's) ...
Low-income worker... it costs gas, time, effort, guns, @ ammo...

Look @ leasing... what's the price these days... it got too expensive...
Twas a Blessing whin the WMA opened up down the road...

Tis NOT an execative hunt...
