Where are you? I don't think there are many states without them anymore.

I'm in Colorado. Lots of Elk & Deer. No ferral hog problem yet. The way it's portrayed on the web those things are a real problem & threat to crops in Texas. I found lots of "ranches" where you can pay big bucks to shoot them. But can't find anyone who actually has a problem with them & wants them exterminated. Seems more like a business opportunity than any kind of threat or nuisence.
Anyway, Me & a bud or two would gladly make the treck to Texas if there were hogs to chase. I bought a new 338 ultra mag & am dying to shoot it as something other than paper. Thanks for the reply

East and South Texas have the highest population concentration i believe. At least from I have seen. I got a few on my place. We kill anywhere from 8-15 a year off it.

Good for you. Doesn't sound like you're over-run with them.

There are a LOT of places where they are over run. Most places i've seen charge a few hundred to come out and shoot some hogs. I could take you to a few places, but i couldn't guarantee anything. I'd hate for you to drive all this way for nothing. I don't have a place of my own, but know several people that have hogs on their land.


Now what can you do about a elk hunt?? i've always wanted to take an elk!! Especially with my bow!!

I think your going to have a hard time finding someone to let you come out and shoot them because of the liability issues.

Real nice of you to offer. I don't mind spending a few hundred for an good opportunity to hunt them. If you get on the net & type in "PIG BOMB" it makes you think these things are thick as molasses.
Speaking of elk. Two years ago my wife & I each bagged bulls during the muzzlloading season. In fact, according to my GPS we shot them exactly 21.7 miles from our front door. I got a 6x6 hers was a rag horn. You get the tag I'll take you up & show you around. You have to have a quad or horse to get in where we hunt. If you're serious I'll PM you the unit number. Certainly don't want to broadcast that.
Thanks again for your reply. Here's the huntin rig.

Hey, I want that unit number! I have hunted for that animal for years, and NEVER seen one in the woods . I actually just got back into hunting last year after a 7 hiatus
