  1. New Posse Facebook Group

    Sorry, but I also will not join FB. It is a hostile environment to people that believe like I do. I wish you all the luck in world on your new endeavor.
  2. Just ran across this story today. The TX Ag Comm., Sid Miller, has approved the use of hog attractants with poison in an effort to stem the tide of feral hog destruction. Link to the story: http://www.msn.com/en-us/news/us/fearing-feral-hog-apocalypse-texas-approves-drastic-measures/ar-AAnbswK?ocid=spartanntp The cynic in me finds it interesting that a company I have never heard of produces a hog attractant, again, one I have never heard of, laced with poison and receives single billing in the story. Link to the company: http://www.kaputproducts.com/solutions-by-pest-type/feral-hog/ The company is located, in the middle of nowhere, North of Ft. Collins, CO between there and Cheyenne, WY. The shipping logistics alone would make the product too expensive. Sid Miller makes it sound like the State of Texas will be buying Kaput bait, which according the web site is "coming soon", to use. Really curious to know how Mr. Miller plans on keeping other wildlife from eating the poison. Wonder if there was an open bid for that project? Would probably be very interesting to connect the dots and follow the money... The Texas Hog Hunters Association is listed as the opposition in the article. Was not aware of that organization but will be joining.
  3. Fear of Hogpocalypse

    Latest update: http://www.wfaa.com/news/local/texas-news/tt-private-meeting-sid-miller-hog-poison-safeguard-not-doable/439884287 Mr. Miller walking back several of his claims on the safety of warfarin. Also thought it was interesting the manufacturer pulled their application to operate in TX due to the fear of a lawsuit. Really have a hard time with the statements that the federal labeling can be changed...
  4. @OP, the store is located on the west side of the Dallas North Tollway at El Dorado and the Tollway. From Stacy & Coit, head west on Stacy, turns into Frisco Main Street. At the DNT turn north, take the El Dorado Texas turn-a-round back south. Gander is located on the west side just prior to reaching El Dorado.
  5. lightning is not your friend!!

    A lightning strike is the gift that just keeps on giving. We had damage due to a strke on our neighbors house. Did not hit us, just close enough. Very much a pain to deal with.
  6. They are not too serious yet. Went by the Frisco location. One of the sales guys I know said they haven't started emptying the warehouses yet. He thought the real deals would not hit for a couple more months.
  7. Any Feedback/Experience with ATN

    Specifically this model, atn thor-hd 384 1.25-5x. ATN looks to have a solid product but would like to see feedback from actual users.
  8. Every once in a while, the game cam clicks a great pic. Thought the attached would qualify. Can't tell if it is a bird or mouse on the ground, either way, it is dinner for the the bobcat.
  9. Lesson Learned

    Did not know that they camera "eye" reacts to light just like an animals, So, when I shined my green light at the feeder, the camera eye looked like a shiney emerald. Great shot, but an expensive one...

  11. Hawg Down

    With those tusks, glad I did not meet this dude in a dark open field. Took me two hours to dress him out. Took him out with my .308 at a hundred yards in the dark.

    Wondering if the massive grass fire had a negative impact on the population...

  20. Fear of Hogpocalypse

    @ Double Naught Spy...Amen, sir.
  21. Fear of Hogpocalypse

    This plan reminds me of the Oklahoma plan to release panthers in the state to reduce the ferel hog population. Problem was, nobody told the panthers to ONLY eat hogs. So there was a negative impact on cattle, sheep and deer. This program has been denied/dismissed by the state as a urban legend but those pesky sitings and pictures continue to come in...
