    Been watching Huey's videos on Youtube for a few weeks, very informative. Been in Texas for 18 years and have been wanting to hog hunt for all of them. Just signed up for a lease SW of Wichita Falls, bought a Polaris 570 to get around the 1400 acres of lease, and have scouted some of it out so far. Just hoping to learn what items I need to buy, and skills I need to develop. I am a trauma nurse in a level 1 hospital in Dallas so I am a little cautious about how I'm going about all of this. Concerned about rattlers and angry hogs. Hoping to learn what I can do to be safe and effective on the lease.

    Howdy!

    Wear snake boots and shoot the angry hogs and you will be fine!

    Better yet, I'll tame the rattlers and kill just the angry hogs for you just to keep you safe. Just send me a key and directions to the gate. Lol. Welcome.

    Let's see …
    The hogs eat the snakes, and I eat the hogs.

    So far no problems!
    Go get 'em!

    Glad you found us...

    I hunt the scrub alone at night and $150 in snake boots is a solid investment.

    My medical background compels me to carry a couple extra pounds if gear on my hip.

    Consider a red scope light for the Polaris if you haven’t already...
