Either can't or do know how to make the video show here.

And yeah, I know, for some of you guys there is no such thing as too many to shoot.

Nothing beats fishing and hog hunting at the same time.

A relation of one of my coworkers was hunting hogs at night last winter (a year ago), went in the river after one, and disappeared. His buddies looked all over for him, called for help....he was found the next morning having drowned. I wouldn't go in a river in the day time, much less at night.

(sorry, I can't seem to get the video to post here, just the link, can anyone help please? (what am I doing wrong, any tips?)

I saw this a few days ago and thought this was the video you'd be showing. There're too many hogs here too but this guy does something about it!

SPOILER ALERT BELOW


At the very end there's a close call with a bear!

ETA; more (FAILED) attempts at getting the video to post instead of the link, and also :banghead:

In order for you to display a video inline you must do the following:

1) Get the url - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b43aF4R0h40
2) Remove the www. https://youtube.com/watch?v=b43aF4R0h40
3) Remove the "s" from the http://youtube.com/watch?v=b43aF4R0h40
4) Remove any "excess" stuff like &feature= or /embed/ or other stuff so that the url looks just like #3 above
5) Place the results inside the [ youtube ][ /youtube] brackets

Are those Mexican hogs coming north across the river? Are they Democrats?

I kind of chuckled when I saw that on channel 11 news the other night. Which got me to thinking(always a dangerous thing), I know hunting hogs from a helicopter is legal. Would it be legal to hunt hogs from a boat? Other than the COE regs, of course.

Btw, you can just put any of those urls (shortened or long) in the video tag and you don't have to modify it

This is how I embedded the video above

Lake lewisville? You can't hunt with guns there, but if i remember correctly, you can use bows & arrows.

That's why there's so many there, no hunting pressure because in this day and age nobody knows how to shoot bows & arrows. I checked, my local range & gun club will not allow bows & arrows.

Elm fork has a rather nice archery range.

I bow hunt deer and pigs every year. There are quite a few bow hunters in Texas. Crossbows are even legal now for everyone. Lewisville only allows hunting on the far north end. No where near where these pictures were taken. It is difficult hunting by permit only.

Lavon and Ray Roberts are no different.

I don't know about Lewisville, but I've been told you can hunt hogs with shotguns around lake Grapevine. Haven't confirmed that for myself.

Pretty sure you can get a Corps permit to hunt hogs with guns on Lake Lewisville. Our neighborhood FB page has concerned moms on complaining constantly about hearing gunshots coming from the Corps land around the lake. Either that or they are doing it illegally.

EDIT: I stand corrected: "Legal Hunting Weapons and Methods: Archery only for feral hogs, all other legal game may be taken with a shotgun using shot size no larger then #2. Crossbows WILL be allowed to hunt Feral Hogs. It is ILLEGAL to hunt with or carry Muzzleloaders, rifles and pistols while on USACE property."
