    Boar hunting is not a bore. :D On private land, there's no limits, no rules, no closed seasons on hogs. Just kill 'em all and let god sort 'em out, night, day, baited, run 'em down with a jeep, whatever. Public land, what public land? The few WMAs that have hog hunting, one is near me, have their own rules. The WMA here is open Feb/March and is buckshot only, no bows, no black powder, no rifles, no handguns, only shotguns and only loaded with buckshot. On my land, I trap 'em. :D

    Texas Parks & Wildlife has a website.

    800-792-1112 for info.

    No license is needed for feral hogs if one is acting as an agent for the landowner, whether resident or non-resident owner or agent.

    Same for coyotes attacking, about to attack or which have recently attacked livestock, domestic animals or fowl.
