Hey folks,

I just bought a PSE stinger package for entry level bow hunters. i'ts not the best bow or anything, but i like the feel of it. i know deer season is over in a couple of weeks.. but is there a hog season or is it always open?

also, are there any tips for a very-beginner hunter?

thanks

Every day is hog season, and the bag limit is 2,000,000. Best tip I can give you is to poke a hole in every one you can...good luck!

Kevin, congrats on your new bow, to answer your questions,
there is no season for hogs, they aren't a classified as a game animal so you can hunt them all year long.
from the TPWD website: http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/publications/annual/hunt/nongame/

EXOTIC ANIMALS AND FOWL Exotic animal refers to grass-eating or plant-eating, single-hoofed or cloven-hoofed mammals that are not indigenous or native to Texas and are known as ungulates, including animals from the deer and antelope families that landowners have introduced into this state. Includes, but is not limited to feral hog, Aoudad sheep, Axis deer, Elk, Sika deer, Fallow deer, Blackbuck antelope, Nilgai antelope, and Russian boar. Exotic fowl refers to any avian species that is not indigenous to this state, including ratites (emu, ostrich, rhea, cassowary, etc.). There are no state bag or possession limits or closed seasons on exotic animals or fowl on private property. It is against the law to:
  • Hunt an exotic without a valid hunting license.
  • Hunt an exotic on a public road or right-of-way.
  • Hunt an exotic without the landowner's permission.
  • Possess an exotic or the carcass of an exotic without the owner's consent.
Penalty: A person who violates these laws commits an offense that is a Class A Parks and Wildlife Code misdemeanor ($500-$4000 and/or up to one year in jail).
As far as tips, its probably better to hunt them in the winter as they won't be infested with ticks and fleas and its not quite as nasty to clean them.

Good luck
