Pig hunting...

Recommended Posts

In a few weeks I'm going to texas bow hunting for pigs at a ranch, can't wait I've never pig hunted before I think it will be a blast, we plan on taking 3 pigs preperson. Any one have any cleaning tips for feild dressing and buchering. and shoot placement tips?

I have been to Texas a couple times. With a bow, I would aim like there is an earing from the hog. Aim for the earing - the protection plate, at least on a Russian Boar, is pretty big.

Clean like you would a deer for field dressing. If you have an ATV just bring back the whole hog and put it up in a tree. Start cutting - making large cuts of meat if possible. You can always cut those up for more later. Do not forget the ribs; so bring a saw.

I just got back from hog hunting in TX early this morning. I use a rifle but we have one guy in our group that has used his bow the last couple of years. He shot one last year right through the chest - heart/lung shot. It ran off and they never found it. This year one of our guys shot a pig in the chest and it went down for about 30 seconds then got back up, he shot it again in the head and it kept running he shot it a third time and it finally went down. The exit wound in the head was the size of an orange and there was brain matter on the ground. They are tough little animals, a lot tougher than people who have never hunted them give them credit for. I would go for the head or the heart lung shot with a bow. Also do not be afraid to stick them again if it looks like they aren't going to go down. Have fun hog hunting is a blast and extremely addicting. I can't wait for next year when we go back. Which part of TX are you going to?

I was in texas a few years ago pig hunting we used dogs and knifes were the weapon it was also done at night it was a blast the only thing I did not care for was the fleas that were on them when you clean them. Either way you hunt them it is a blast.

Just got back from Texas, the three of use shot 9 piggs all with bow and arrow. It was fun but those piggs are nasty to skin some were full of ticks and fleas. The biggest was 235# boar. I shot 3 eater 85-130# sows. It was get practice shooting.

        Well the Pike River Dam is finally running at full throttle.  For those of you who aren't up here to see it for yourself, you can see it here: https://www.everettbaylodge.com/lake-vermilion-ice-out-2018-the-dam-is-running/

      measured ice this morning.   It has not changed in the last 48 hours.    Just the shorelines have melted.   The quality of ice has gone down though.   Still Driving my wheeler on shoe.    Still 20-28 inches out there away from current.    The bay by winter access is the thickest at 30 inches.   Don

      Thanks for your efforts!!! Let me know if you need any free city garbage bags; I'm involved with the City of St. Cloud Green Team. You can place them at the Munsinger Garden greenhouse, or any trail access points for easy Park Dept. pickup.

      Going to get the kids out on the river today with gloves and garbage bags for Earth day.Plenty of garbage around the local community spots that can be removed.Im sure there will be more but it's something to do and it will look a little prettier out there.

      Wow!  Didn't realize it was that bad up there.  That's going take a long time to get turned around.

      To give you a idea of what it is like here this is how my dock has sat since last August. The river is at lake level here.  Almost no Spring flow from melting snow. Just a trickle here and there. I've burnt any grass off for 200 feet around my house, farm buildings and farm equipment so there is a little protection in case a big fire gets going. The grass has been burnt off between the highway and the airport to give Waskish a little protection in case a fire gets going south of town. Westwind cleaned their channel last fall so they should be OK for boats. Total acreage of URL and LRL is 272,000 acres so it would ONLY take 177,261,312, 000 gallons of water to raise the lake level 2 feet.

      you can get to horseshoe by boat but not far enough to get any fish yet.   This may change in the next few days.   I plan on ice fishing on shoe today.   Should be able to land a nice amount of slabs.   Don

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.
