Wild hog killed by Michael VanSant using a suppressed AR15 on public hunting land
Lots of Texans regularly hunt hogs with suppressed rifles and recently the Texas Department of Parks and Wildlife rescinded their regulation which prohibited their use when hunting game animals. What this means is that starting September 1st of this year, legally owned suppressors can be used when hunting all game, non-game and exotic animals in Texas.
I've owned and hunted with suppressors as long as I've been old enough to legally purchase one, so I'm pretty well versed on their use and how to legally purchase an NFA
Well we finally made it down to our buddy Gaston's, or GTXHUNTER88 on the forum, place outside of San Antonio. We got down there Sunday afternoon in the middle of a big family BBQ. They made too much and needless to say we ate like kings the whole time we were down there, nothing but meat.
We had a good time talking with the family and I had to shoot my rifle to sight in the eotech.
A pig pipe is a very cheap and easy to construct hog feeder that can keep hogs busy for hours at a time trying to get at all of the corn inside.
The basic premise is that it's a PVC tube capped at both ends with holes drilled in and filled with corn. It's then attached by a chain or rope to a stake or t-post so that the hogs can push it around in a circle and while it rolls small amounts of corn will fall out of the holes for the hogs to eat. Since the large pipe must be rolled this prevents large amounts of corn being eaten by deer, coons or other animals that would normally eat the corn thrown from a feeder.
People build these in many different ways and out of many different materials and we're going to show you a simple

It was the third day of our south Texas adventure – the first two days being a very successful night vision wild hog hunt in Goliad, Texas with Chris Lucci on the Wild River Ranch (www.wildriverranchtexas.com). The Wildhoghunters.com team had taken 4 hogs. I was traveling with Michael Vansant and David Dell,
A few weeks ago we headed south to Goliad, Texas down near the coast to meet up with Dr. Chris Lucci and do some night hunting and filming at the Wild River Ranch. We had a great time while we were down there and got some awesome hunting footage.
The accommodations were great and the hunting cabin was better than a few of the houses David has lived in. Not to mention, we had a cook preparing our food for us at every meal.

We went high tech on this trip, using a thermal imager as a spotting device and our suppressed rifles were fitted with Gen 3 night vision scopes.
There's been a buzz recently about hunting hogs from helicopters since the Texas State Legislature has voted to clear the way to allow more people to participate in this activity. It's currently legal to hunt hogs from a helicopter
David Dell stalking a group of hogs we seen run from a field and through a creek. David makes a wide loop around and stalks them from the opposite direction and makes a successful kill at Coyote Creek Ranch in Detroit Texas.
Here's a short clip from our hunt this last weekend. It was cold, wet and rainy but we ended up getting 4 hogs during a break in the storms. In this video Garrett makes one of the fastest knife kills on a hog I've ever seen.
