Hunting hogs is even more fun when you are successful. There are alot of things to consider when setting up for Texas boar hunting. Setting up for hogs is pretty easy when you know what to do.
In Texas we can hunt hogs (or feral pigs) year round. There is no bag limit on them and you can hunt them at night too. One popular method of hog hunting in Texas is to hunt them under deer feeders with special lights.
There are several types of hog feeders you can set up, but the lights are the most important. Whatever kind of feeder light (hog hunting light) you use, you want to be sure it won’t spook the game.
Another efficient way of hunting hogs is to actually build a hog trap and trap them. A good trapper can trap as many as 80 hogs a year from the same property when they learn what the hogs want. When you get really good at it you can trap more than one hog at a time with a good trap.
