Hog Hunting Article

7 posts in this topic

There is a really good article in the April F&S on hog hunting. It is only 3 pages long but it gives you a lot of really good info if you have any interest in trying to hunt wild hogs.

I read that article too. It made me want to head down to Tennesee where I have some relatives to stay with.

Have you ever tried hog hunting?

Yep I have been to texas the last 5 years hunting hogs. They are a lot of fun to hunt! We already have a trip planned for a 3 day hunt in TX next February and are talking about adding another 3 day hunt at a second outfitter to it so we can stay down there and hunt for a longer period of time. I will try to post some pics from our trip this year.

If you don't mind me asking, what does it end up costing you to hunt through an outfitter?

Is it an outfitter or a "camp" for hunting? You have to be careful - some of these are high fence hunts.

The place we went to this year he gave us a deal - If we could gaurantee him 8 hunters we could hunt for 650 per person for a 3 day hunt/ 3 hogs total(3 meat hogs or 1 trophy and 2 meat). They don't charge any extra if you kill a trophy boar. If you want a trophy they will do everything they can to get you a shot at one. Normally it would be 800 per person for a 3 day hunt. That includes your room - 2 people to a room, 2 double beds in each room and shower and bathroom, and 3 meals a day. You can also shoot a bobcat for a 250 kill fee and you can shoot all the coyotes you want for no charge, when you are going out to stand if you see a coyote - it is on!!! They will drive through anything to get a shot at them because there are so many down there and they kill the young calves. This is my fifth year going down hog hunting and this place is the best by far we have ever had. Just the overall hunting plus how good they treat you for the price is great!

Teal - the place we go isn't a high fence hunt. It is over 40,000 acres of land. The only fences on the land are for the cattle and the hogs just push the barb wire up out of the way to get through it. I agree you have to be careful about which one you go with, this place is an outfitter but it is a hunt not a hog shoot. There are no gaurentee's on getting or seein anything. This year we had a rough hunt, it was towards the end of their season so the hogs were getting pretty wise. But it was still a blast and the guides really worked their butts off trying to find hogs for us to take a crack at.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
