    Price of a pig lease

    What is the going rate for a productive hog lease in your neck of the woods? If possible, Id like to know some things about the general location, (e.g. state, county) acreage, terms of the lease, hunting quality, and any other amenities that come with the lease. Thanks!

    Where are you located? It may be a little hard to find a lease just for hogs, you might look for something that covers deer and turkey as well.

    Thumbs up

    West Texas - No electricity hookups for rv/camper..no amenities besides roads throughout the property.. I've seen one place (2 sections) for $500/yr and the others are usually $1000-$2500/yr. Terms are either January-September or year round depending on if the land owner is in an area with a decent whitetail population and they can capitalize on making extra money off of having deer hunters for those few winter months.

    Forgot to mention...you supply the feeders/feed/blinds if you want them on the property. This is almost a must-have out here unless you just have access to thousands and thousands of acres. a handful of sections won't have a resident hog population without a lot of feed/cover and water.

    How far west in Texas is there huntable hog populations? Are they hurting the javelina populations? Been awhile since I've seen any articles about them.

    Distribution


    Feral hogs are distributed throughout much of Texas, generally inhabiting the white-tailed deer range, with the highest population densities occurring in East, South and Central Texas. North and West Texas have very low or no populations. However, reports indicate that populations are beginning to expand and increase in these areas. There is currently an estimated population in excess of 1.5 million feral hogs in Texas.
    The increase in population and distribution is due in part to intentional releases, improved habitat, increased wildlife management, and improved animal husbandry such as disease eradication, limited natural predators, and high reproductive potential. There seem to be very few inhibiting factors to curtail this population growth and distribution although extreme arid conditions may impede it.




    This was pulled from TP&W's website. I've never hunted further west than Crockett county
    and we had that lease (2000acres) for 6 years and i never saw one there.
    I've hunted out in Llanno county back in the 90's too and we never saw one there either.
    The last time i was out there was in 2012 and i did see some tracks and sign,
    so things may have changed.
    If i was going to come here, i'd try to find something around Burnett, Coryell, Falls/ Willaimson
    area...OR, better yet, something along the upper Trinity river, like Navarro, Freestone, or Leon
    County (which is where i am).
    Cherokee county is covered up with them too.
    I pay 500 a year for what I have leased and it's about 500 acres and half is solid woods
    and it has flowing spring-fed creeks so they never leave.
    But I have access to more that i hunt for nothing, that joins it.
    It's not all wine and roses though...they want traps out year round and they want results.
    My bill at the feed store for corn is rediculous.

    Seems to defeat the goal of eradication and/or numbers reduction if you're feeding them....
    How many hogs are you able to take out in a year?

    I would think that if the property owner wants the hogs removed, he should be paying you. Especially if you are trapping them.

    it just don't work that way down here, man...but i've heard that alot.
    I get to hunt 700 acres for free, year round.
    But I have to trap and hunt the hogs all year too.
    If you're going to trap them and hunt them, that requires baiting them....
    Understand, I'm not feeding them, I'm baiting them in, to traps and
    to a place i know they'll be so i can shoot them.
    Last year i killed and/or trapped 130 something.
    And being just me alone, i think that's not bad.

    another thing...this place has a lot of good deer on it.
    it's no big deal to see multiple bucks in the 140-150 class...
    so naturally i want to keep feeders going year round for the deer.
    The dove hunting is also first class, as well as the squirrel hunting,
    which is mainly what I am interested in honestly.

    If you need to take a vacation or a break for a week or two, I could come down and help get rid of some hogs, if I have to, I guess. I'm not interested in those puny little 140-150 class whitetail deer.

    I guess I could join you. I'd hate to see navajo get overworked and stressed out on hog hunting. I'm not much interested in those little Bambies either. Nope.

    Puny Below are a couple we took last season in East Texas. Not as big as the Northern deer but our good bucks weigh from 160 lbs to 220 lbs. We weigh them at camp. All low fence/no fence free range. (The guy on bottom pic is my hunting buddy - not me,)

    Regarding pigs, they move around a lot and can be gone for weeks. There is no guarantee you will see one even in areas with a lot hogs. Also, they are often nocturnal. We have lots of pigs where I hunt but I seldom see them. - T.S.
