TWRA will let you take as many as you want anytime of the year. Maybe some boars hare would make some good flies... Hmm.
Not to quibble, but that's only half true. They are open year round on private land. On public land, they are legal to take whenever it would be legal to take a deer.
I'm not sure why the state has placed those restictions on pig hunting. Seems to me, they want this invasive, destructive species removed, so why hamstring (no pun intended) hunters who can help mitigate the problem?
