Hunting season 2014

well the boat got winterized yesterday . Spent the first night in the bow stand last night and passed a basket eight in full velvet . Wasn't in the stand ten minutes tonight and put a rage broadhead through a doe . Off to a good start . I know others on here are hunters so lets share our success and failures all fall

Our bow opener is 9/27, and it's not near cold enough to hunt yet

But, we have ALOT of hogs coming in right now, maybe I will go get me my 1st bow hog.

Those are all just wild hogs? What's considered a "large" hog in terms of lbs?

I think anything over 200 is big, but we've seen 350# hogs as well.

Anything over 200, I'll just shoot in the face and let it rot. 150 is a good one to kill if you plan to harvest. I killed a bunch of small ones thinking it would be better meat but it becomes alot of work. a ~60# pig yields only ~17# of meat at the end of the day

i was at the farm all day saturday getting ready ... put in an acre of winter wheat and another food plot ... cleaned up some trails and one more stand to put up ... saw lots of deer ... exciting season is about to begin

my buddy with the farm just up the road has hogs on trail cams (north central KY) ... hopefully i'll see a couple of them!

yep, we are overrun by feral hogs down in the central part of Texas too. They have demolished the fences on my small ranch to a point I can't keep livestock in. But they migrate to where food/water is plentiful only passing thru my place for a night or two before moving on, then back thru 2-6 weeks later. Hard to catch them there ...

I just gave up my deer lease that I've pampered for the past 5 years due to the hunting pressures on the surrounding properties and the infestation of feral hogs. I didn't take one deer off the place last year but got two 250# boar hogs. I just moved to a different place that has a lot more acreage and has been on a strict management plan for 12 years, so should have pretty good success. I also have a ~600 acre place way out in west Texas (hour plus SW from Ozona) that I have been managing the deer herd for a few years that shows some good promise. I am currently rifle only but have been giving some serious consideration for bow/cross bow to open up my hunting season timelines. Hunting (pretty much any type) is quite a passion for me!
