I've been watching this forum for a few years and apparently never joined so here we go... I live in the north side of the DFW metro-mess but spend a lot of time in east Texas where a branch of my family settled, after leaving where we originally settled in Clay/Montague. I came back here to figure get pointers on making a hog roll barrel or 2. In Trinity Co. we're covered up, maybe more than ever. We've gotten a few but haven't even scratched the surface. I did most of the mowing this year and got beat to hell from old damage, and since then pastures and clearings in the woods are a mess. I hope to have a barrel out in the next few days and hope we can catch them when they're moving. Interesting enough, a secondary curiosity is what's dragging off whole hogs when we leave them placed. We know, but I plan on putting cameras on the whole hogs, rather than the carcasses which are obviously being devoured in hours by buzzards and coyotes. I killed one from the top of a hill, after climbing out of the tractor and putting him down at about 300 yards down the hill, running back and forth after missing the first shot. He disappeared whole, not a trace, from 150-200 yards in the pasture from the woods. My cousin had one not long after that and the same thing happened.
