It has been an awful long deer season here in the Texas Hill Country but, as of last night, it is finally over. Since the woods are clear of deer hunters; Lucy, Ash, Ollie and I am headed out tomorrow morning to meet with a new land owner and survey his property. It is not going to be a serious hunt but I have every intention of casting them a couple of times as we drive around. With some luck, I may be posting pictures of this dude, with dogs hanging off of him, tomorrow.

Good luck. If you need backup on that place, Sadie says those cajones look like an easy target :O3

Well, the place was pretty nice and the owner was a neat fella too (retired photography editor for Texas Highways magazine). It is wildlife exempt via White Tail Deer, Turkey, Golden Cheeked Warbler and Painted Bunting habitat management. He has it set up as a Bed & Breakfast, leases to deer hunters in the winter, and runs a B&B/wildlife photography package in the Spring and Fall.

Anyway, no one wants to take pictures of the hogs, which are running the deer off and destroying Turkey nests.

He told me when I got there that we wouldn't find any pigs on his property during the day, because of hunting pressure throughout the season, and described where they come and go from at night. Sure enough, we didn't find any pigs but his point was proven in spades.

Lucy and Ash hunted well, covering a bunch of ground. At one point, we came around a hill and they took off into the wind. They stopped at about 250yards on the GPS and I thought for sure that they were bayed. Turns out that they were stuck at a high fence. as we sat, waiting for the dogs, he begins to explain that they are very close to one of the water gaps used by pigs. Not a second later, he says "there is one.", pointing at a field about 600 yards across the fence. Sure enough, there he stands, a 200+lb pig, eating with the buffalo on the vegetarian, card carrying PETA members, neighboring property. I guess that if the dogs got through the fence, wed have had a rodeo! We finished the tour of the property and ended up at the same spot about 45 minutes later. The big pig and buffalo had moved on but they were replaced with 5 more 80 to 120lb pigs.

At this point, it looks like this guy knows what he is talking about so I decide to take a look at the water gap. It looked like a pig superhighway. Ill be headed back out there one evening this week to catch them on his side of the fence!

Sounds like trapping is more of an option here than hunting due to the neighbor.....good luck.
