Well, here we are right in the middle of post season. Post White tail deer season that is.
So, what do we do now? I really enjoy this time of year because spring is right around the corner and the hogs are getting very mobile. This means there are plenty of opportunities for hunters who want to put some jalepeno and cheese sausage in the freezer!
I put together a small video for changing over your feeders from deer season to hog hunting in the post season. It’s a little primer to get you started in the right direction with a few hog hunting tips mixed in that I use on our place here in East Texas after white tailed deer season is over.
The most important thing to remember, and you will hear (or read) me say this ALOT- do not start hunting hogs like you white tailed deer.
DO NOT HUNT HOGS LIKE WHITE TAILED DEER-
If you just want the occasional hog here and there, then you can absolutely hunt them like you do white tailed deer. Hunting hogs takes a different approach that what we do with deer.
So, change it up just a little to fill your coolers, apply enough pressure to keep them off your property and improve the living conditions for your white tail herd.
YES, it is absolutely possible to significantly improve your herd by controlling the activities of the hogs on your property! The more acreage you have, the larger the program needs to be, but keeping a few very simple principals in mind will get you headed in the right direction from the start!
So, adjust your thinking, your approach, and the way you think about animals on your property when you make the change to hog hunting after white tailed deer season is over in your area. When you can do this consistently you will be much more successful than you ever thought.
The benefit? Lots and Lots of pork sausage, and of course better land and herd management for your white tailed deer herd!
Just fill your feeders, make the adjustments I recommend in this video and give it just a little time. Then- start packing the meat in the coolers, or ridding your property of these destructive hogs
