National Forest, free. ($4 parking fee on the honor system)

Just curious here. How is the hunting on this "free land" than we all paid for?

Never got hunted with them, but we do lease our land from the Reeds and they're awesome people!

I am on an 850 acre lease in East Texas that is covered up with hogs. After deer season, I have no problem taking folks there to kill hogs. I do charge a small fee to help with the cost of my gas ,food, corn, batteries for feeders and what-not. I dont think it is wrong to try to recover some of the costs involved in keeping up a lease. The hunter can bring a tent or small camper or sleep on the sofa in mine. No one on my lease hunts after Dec. and I have it all to myself.The fee also helps pay for the electricity used during the hunt.We hunt hog,bobcat, coyotes, squirrels. I do all the work and let someone else hunt. I think I should get something for that.

I agree with everyone else, I'm not paying to hog hunt.

There have been a few guys post free hog hunting. Just keep looking and go back on the pages of the hog forum you may find one.

One reason we are having a pig problem too many people are trying to make money from hunters and this is going to continue as long as people pay to kill them nasty pigs.

Most landowners have reasonably small properties with neighbors who don't want shots fired at night. I am one of those small property owners. And yes, the hogs are mostly nocturnal.

Some of my concerns are:

I don't know you and this is important. I'm also not interested in your money.

I don't live there except on weekends but have a house, equipment, etc. I want seclusion and peace of mind.

A mistake could cost a landowner or a neighbor a cow. Are you financially responsible? Mistakes happen.

Would you sue me if you got hurt? It has happened, not to me, but to others. In other words, if you step onto my land, I have a liability.

Hogs are a lot less problem than people.

Lots of "what ifs?".

I would have to know someone very, very, well to turn them loose on my land, at night, with a rifle.

BTW, I have never heard of any rancher turning hogs loose. We already have plenty.

up The above pretty much sums up the reality of the situation.

My Father-in-Law has roughly 170 acres that he farms and ranches. He occasionally gets requests from folks, mostly deer and dove hunters, wanting to hunt on his property. He always says no.

He has enough work and worries without dealing with unknown folks who might or might not take care of things. He doesn't need someone walking through a field damaging crops, shooting a calf or cow, leaving trash, leaving a gate open, damaging fences or buildings, etc. Besides, he has me and his grandson to take care of hog problems when they arise grin
