Outdoor News

by Victor Gonzales, Lee County Game Warden

Now that deer season is pretty much over locally, hunters will be turning towards pursuing wild hogs, butchering market hogs or awaiting pork prices to lower so meat processing can begin.

Some hunters have already processed their meat, but others wait until January when chances are better for low temperature and low humidity days. This week should be a good week to get started.

I’m often asked if hog hunting is allowed in Lee County because many experienced and inexperienced hunters do not have the opportunity to hunt feral hogs. Hunters are always looking for new places to hunt. For those having hunting leases or permission to hunt hogs, no problem. Landowners who do not lease their property for hunting are missing out on an opportunity to earn income. For those interested in working something out, I always have a list of people willing to pay landowners for a chance to shoot some hogs while ridding the property of the vermin.

In other news, a hunter education class will be given some time in February either in Giddings, Dime Box or Blue. The date and location will be posted at a later time.
