Went to the ranch today outside of Brenham. Shot 4 hogs with the AR. Saw over 50. Also caught 6 in a trap. Pics to come.  :rocknroll2:

Oh don't worry. We've got some good set ups now. During this summer heat there's no other place to get a good serving of corn. Probably go back out Sunday or Monday. The ranch hand just picks em up and drives them down the street to collect some money or just eats them himself.

I have never even seen a hog, let alone kill one. We have always been lucky I guess to not have them where we hunt. I sorta wish we did have em though, they make good target practice.

Texshooter, how does this work? Do you have to pay to hunt?

No. It's my cousin's property. We go out there every other weekend or so and get rid of as many hogs as we can. They destroy the land so we don't feel bad killing them.  The ranch hand set up the traps and he takes whatever he catches to the butcher and trades them for cash. We don't shoot the ones in the traps.

Do you have to have a hunting license to hunt on your own property?

Not hogs. You need a license for deer even when on your own property. Each county has limits on how many deer you can shoot in a season. So when you bag one you have to attach a piece that you cut off from your license to the deer's ear (it's like a coupon book). There are also similar provisions for bird hunting.

Because hogs are nuisances and are very destructive to the land, you can shoot them year round without limits.
