In Texas, i think they should just lump them in with hogs and apply same rules. Basically no rules.
Full auto boat mounted deuce 10 ga. on a swivel mount would be sweet.
And exception for lead shot allowed.


That looks very promising. Who do you have to contact now to get the permit?

Maybe build a camouflaged boat out of a 2 liter soda bottle so she can drift into them quietly. I like it

Do they have any natural predators, or will only wild hogs eat them?

you'd need a knife for that.

Hop, you got one in reserve for butterfingers ?

Yeah, about that. I have been looking for it for about a week. I am pretty sure it’s in or around my house. I’m not calling it lost yet, just misplaced

I live on a 13 acre pond that had a great shad spawn last spring. Then came the cormorants ... sometimes as many as 20 at a time swimming under water in formation.
Fishing is awful compared with last year. Had a decent # of crappie last year and almost zilch this summer.


Just because you can, doesn't mean you should!

why hasn't our game and fish agencies been raising hell about the destruction they do to our fisheries?......
