Chester’s Notes by Chester Moore | TF&G Executive Editor

Go ‘Hog Wild’ and F.L.E.X. Fishing


n case you have not noticed, we at Texas Fish & Game like to go all out with our promotions. From partnering with U.S. Reel last fall to put an angler in the boat with fishing legend Jimmy Houston on Lake Conroe to our Trophy Quests, we love to do things in a fun, informative way. With that said, I am happy to announce the release of my latest book Hog Wild: Hog Hunting Strategies, Tactics & Facts. It has been in the works for several years and goes where I believe few have ventured in terms of creating a detailed picture of hogs and hog hunting in not only Texas but also the world. My passion is always first and foremost about the creatures we pursue so there is lots of information in the book about hogs not only in the chapters that deal specifically with their biology and life history but also woven into the chapters on specific facets of hog hunting such as archery, rifle and tactics such as baiting. The book also details hog-dog hunting and has an exhaustive profile section of hog dogs used around the country. Now back to the promotions… March 19-23 has been designated as TF&G Hog Wild Week. To celebrate the release of my book, which is available at, I will be hog hunting for five days and nights. This will see me hunting with rifles, crossbows and perhaps even air guns as well as utilizing state-of-the-art technology while hunting them at night. There will be daily

Besides promoting the book, the idea is to highlight the amazing hog hunting opportunities we have in Texas and to do something positive. Half of the meat from hogs taken on the expedition will go to Hogs Gone Wild, a charity that helps feed

The subject will be Secret Strategies for Super-Sized Trout and will focus on using my F.L.E.X. Fishing system to teach you how to systematically catch big trout. This seminar in particular will help you create a game plan by unlocking rarely spoken of aspects of speckled trout behavior and habits as well as some solid techniques. It will also give you some ideas on how to tie in the very latest in fishing technology using those techniques. Over the last couple of years, the fishing industry has put out some incredible products that can give trout anglers an edge and they will be part of this demonstration. But as the infomercials say, wait, there is more. Everyone who attends the seminar will get a coupon for a free e-book download of my F.L.E.X. Fishing manual that will help you get started in the system. We will also conduct a drawing for a $500 fishing tackle package for those in attendance as well as give away a signed copy of Texas Reds, Chester is scheduled to present a seminar on Catching Flounder Fever and Texas Big Trout at the Houston Fishing Show, Saturday, March 3.
