It looks like there is a good chance I am going to be sent somewhere in s.e. texas for at least 30 days in the very near future. How does one hunt hogs there? is it by resident or non resident license or are they considered pests?

There's no tags, per se, but I'm pretty sure you will at a minimum have to have a 5 day license. It doesn't cost much however. Check the regs as Texas Game Wardens are very diligent! It's just that deer are everywhere in Texas, and so are poachers. So even shooting non game animals on private property you may get checked out. Have a ball.

Thanks for the info gentlemen, it looks like the detail has been canceled. I think we were going to the Brownsville area.

Brownsville is considered deep South Texas. Beaumont would be South East Texas. If it comes up again, Cameron County is very populated but it quickly plays out and there is a lot of country along the River and Arroyo Colorado. No public hunting to speak of unless you are in some draw type hunts at one Wildlife Management Area or the Laguna Atasocsa or Lower Rio Grande NWR System. That refuge system is the only public nilgai hunting in Texas. I have a lot of kin in Cameron County, seen it change from a rural area to a populated chunk of the border. For sure, I would be willing to bet that I'm the only MO member that hunted big game in Cameron County in the 2010 season. Not that many places to hunt. Finding a hog hunt would be tough. For sure, no free hunting even for hogs as there is too much of a demand.

I was born and raised smack between Beaumont and Houston. RD is right, Texas has very little public land "that has game on it". Most Pine forests are biological deserts, no food, no game. Best bet is to just book a hunt with an Outfitter. I have used "www.Four Seasons Hunting Service" for years, Dan Moody can put you on hogs, exotics, just about anything.

If you are talking South East Texas think Louisiana not Mexico. Lots of hunting clubs on the Texas side and most are local members year round. Tember land that is leased from the big Timber Companies.

Grew up in Daisetta, hunted 10 miles north of Devers; married a girl from Hull. I moved oilfield equipment ( heavy hauling) from Baton Rouge to Alice, Texas. all along the coast.
