    hog hunting near houston, TX?

    Hey guys I am wondering if anybody knows of any FREE or cheap hog hunting around or not to far from Houston. I live in the katy area. I have heard of San Jacinto river valley up in Conroe but I havnt had time to check it out. Any good info would be appreciated Also If anybody dosnt mind an extra hunting buddy let me know, I have been over seas the last 5 years so im kind of out the loop on decent spots around here.

    TPWD: Public Hunting and Access to TPWD Lands

    Try the above for finding public land to hunt in the area. You will likely find that "free" and "hunting" are two words that, in Texas, rarely go together- at least on private land.
    Something topical, witty, and spuriously attributed- Someone famous and important.

    Contact TXPW office and see what they say, If not happy check out The Big Woods on the Trinity, it's about 600-700 but they feed you and put you up and assist in the processing. If you bow hunt check out Solana Ranch in the Salado area. I will get some other info for you,check out the places from TXPW on google earth and you will see some pretty good places. The TXPW also has some draw hunts, start with them and go from there.
    I dont believe half of what I see....

    Last note on this subject, after the deer season is over Jan or Feb check groupon.com there are usually several ranches in south Texas that offer very affordable hog hunts 75.00 dollar a day range, and they seriously want to get rid of the pigs.Hope this helps.

    I live in Fulshear which is just south of Katy and there are lots of rice farmers over here that have hog problems. I'm getting ready to go around asking them if I can hunt their land here in the next few days or so. I'll let you know if I have any luck.

    Good luck getting a free hunt unless you know someone.

    Most land owners simply are not going to let a stranger hunt their property.

    Those days are pretty much long gone.

    Hunting is big business here.

    Even though hogs are a problem for a lot of landowners they can charge to come hunt them if hey want to.

    There are more guys that want to hunt than there are places to hunt.

    Texas is mainly private land.

    I pay 5 grand a year to have a good place to hunt and there are people that pay more than that for a weekend deer hunt at some "trophy" places

    Know a guy that spent 30k on two deer in one weekend. And he is a member on our lease as well.
