I'm out in southwest Texas where it's hot and dry so they aren't out of control like I have heard they are when you get further east. They are real good to eat though so I try to get a couple in the cooler every month.

Hogs are horrible everywhere else in the great state. I ran out with a buddy of mine last night and we counted over 25 piglets.

Anyone have any suggestions for novice hog hunts? In other words, I want to drive somewhere with my rifle and shoot. How can I do that?

I'm sad I haven't even had a chance to do any hunting since May when we went hog hunting. I've been working on my masters theses the past few months and should be finished in December. It'll be time to declare war on the hogs then. I'm planning to celebrate my graduation by spending a weekend with the AR15, my buddy, and some beer at his property.

The one I shot was the first buck I had seen all season. I have them all over my game cams but only at night. Finally starting the rut in southwest Texas.

I hunted unsuccessfully last season about 50 miles north of Beaumont. Will give it another shot this season. Worked at the lease this past weekend and had these on my camera. Hadn't filled the feeder since last there in January. Hog knocked feeder over sometime in March and a buddy put it right side up around Easter.

Hog Trapping

A couple of years ago, Cousin Dave built a corral style hog trap for me. Since then, I've trapped 96 hogs. The most at one time was 22. Also shot 12 hogs with a rifle. Don't see them as often anymore but here is one from last year.



Shot four coyotes in the pasture behind my house in the past two years. Three others elsewhere. This was the most recent one.



Monday night, I hope to spring the trap on this little sounder.

Thanks. That is one of the early ones from the 1960's that my Dad bought for me when I was in college. When they first came out they were only offered in 30-06. I reloaded 150 grain Nosler Ballistic Tips over Accurate Arms 2520 years ago but my supply is about used up. A fixed 4X Redfield scope has served me well.

Have taken a dozen hogs and six coyotes in the last few yeears. One coyote was 400 yards. The one below was the closest, only 150 yards, but it was the largest.
