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.

      Went up to lake for week of fishing fished Adrian's  Morris point and Long point  6 days on lake. Fished Morris 3 days 18 ft of water west of resort. Did very well on good sized 16 to 18 in. walleyes. Slid out into 22 ft one day and did o.k. there too. Long point was just as good to me if not better fished 30 ft there. We had fish for a few meals and we brought our fish home. Didn't seem to matter what you had on. I used white glow  and pink glow.Sometimes minnow and bobber worked and sometimes jigging worked best. In my opinion fishing was good had no trouble catching fish.
