Just a little slide show of some hogs I've taken over the years. Click on the thumbnail for the slideshow.

Yeah, I think I was 34 in one of those photos. I even had hair and it wasn't gray! :) In the corner of my little 130 acre lease was the remains of a hog corral. Back before Texas had a stock law everyone would just let their live stock run loose. When the farmers, in that area, had a hog roundup that was the corral they used. When the stock law went into effect everyone had to round up their live stock and pen them up. Of course lots of hogs were missed in the roundup. Wasn't long before there was a good population of feral hogs.

I wish I had a place to hunt hogs, but don't want any where I deer hunt. I think the sasquatches keep them killed out as soon as they get around us. :lol: Nice pictures and it looks like you have had a lot of fun.

Yeah Glenn, I've got some great memories of hog hunting. I got to do a lot of observing hogs also. One time, while I was sitting at the base of a tree beside a slough. I got to see what a boar hog would do when he smelled me. While I was sitting there a boar hog came up to the edge of the slough, made a wallow and laid down in it. The gentle breeze suddenly changed directions. I could almost see my scent going to the boar hog about 30 yards away. That was the first time I had ever had a close encounter with a boar hog. I wasn't sure what he would do when he got my scent. Much to my surprise when the hog got my scent he bolted up out of that wallow. Without so much as a look in my direction he tore off out through the palmetto away from me. Not exactly what I was expecting of him. :)
