    What are the hunting seasons for TX. I am interested in a deer or boar hunt. I would love to hear some stories about TX hunting, or see some pics!

    Hunting Seasons

    You can begin to hunt deer in TX with a bow in October....then the gun season starts the first Saturday in November and runs through the first week or so of January. There are special youth seasons that run right up to Febuary also.

    Feral hogs can be hunted year around. My deer lease north of Fredericksburg is overrun with hogs. They are a nuisance and tear up the ranch fences as well as all our feeders. Our ranch owner though won't let us hunt in the pasture at night..for some unknown reason...and that's the best time to hunt hogs. A young hog is excellent table fare although it's not a good idea to eat the meat when the weather has turned hot.

    I'm orginally from South Texas and the peanut farmers down there beg people they can trust to come out and shoot hogs because they will destroy a crop. There are also outfitters that have hunts year around.

    Have Mauser, will hunt hogs for free.

    Do you have to have a permit to hunt hogs?

    Yes, residents can use a general hunting license. Don't try to rely on saying the hog was depredating to get away with not having a license.

    Quote:
    A hunting license is required of any person, regardless of age, who hunts any animal, bird, frog or turtle in this state (except furbearers, if the hunter possesses a trapper's license). No license is required for nuisance fur-bearing animals, depredating hogs or coyotes (see below). Non-residents under 17 years of age may purchase and hunt with the Youth Hunting License (Type 169).

    See the official website:

    Hogs are a blast to hunt. My wife & I love to hunt hogs....we were supposed to go to our ranch next weekend, but it fell through. We hope to get out there again soon. We only get to go a few times a year, it is near Uvalde....we live near Dallas (7 hr. trip).

    You can also visit the following website, it is a Texas hog hunting forum. I am a member.

    Many years ago, my family also had a hunting lease north of Fredricksburg. It was great. Sure wish I could get on another one in that area.

    Good shooting and be safe.
