Wild boar hunt outfitters?

6 posts in this topic

A buddy and I would like to go on a long weekend type of wild boar bowhunt. Our time is restricted to just a few days in a row so a guide/outfitter is needed.

Can anyone recommend a reliable outfitter?

What area of the country are you looking at going to?

Texas has a ton of hogs, that is where we have gone the past 5 years for our hog hunts.

There's a hog outfit over in the U.P. of Michigan in Negaunee called "Bear Mountain". They specialize in Russian Boars.

The three I have been to are arrowhead outfitters, Krooked River Ranch, and Stanfield Hunting Outfitters. We had good luck with Arrowhead Outfitters but he got really expensive, I think his price is around 1000 for a hunt. Stanfield is cheap but if you see a pig you better shoot it because you probably won't see another.

Krooked River Ranch is by far the best place we have been. They have a lot of pigs, manage them very well and their guides work their butts off to make sure you get the chance at getting pigs. But I think they only hunt them from Feb - April. Right now I think they are getting ready for the deer season and once that starts that is all they do until deer season is over.

      There are two main spawning spots on Vermilion that I know of. I'm near the one on the west end of Vermilion. The walleye haven't been as good on this end yet they don't pull any fish out from here. They've been pulling walleye out of the east end spawning spot in Pike Bay, and for some reason walleye have been doing better over there.   I have no doubt that there are many variables that go into the equation, but you can't ignore that the end they put the 10% back into has been doing better than the one where they leave it alone.

      Are there any updates for the area?  It sounds like crappie fishing is good in the shallows on Fishtrap.  I heard Sham is fighting high waters with no end in sight....

      Trolloni - Do you write it that way to actually troll us?  Creel/lake surveys show Vermilion is very healthy and the DNR continues to use new technology.  It's only going to get better.  If we listened to old, arm-chair QB's, fishing would be as shi#TY as the West side.

      At least10% of all eggs hatched at the Pike River Hatchery are returned to Vermilion waters every year. According to DNR statistics that percentage is usually a much higher survival rate then if they had let the walleyes spawn naturally! I consider that a good trade off! Cliff

      They should not be  going  back to area waters or traded to  other dnr  districts they should go right back into LAKE VERMILLION !!!  Don't ya think its time the dnr   should start to listen  to the paying public, us ! [trappers, hunters,  fisherpeople ,boaters and snowmobilers ]
