Hog Hunting Article

Recommended Posts

xedge2002

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.

      Hi Guys & Gals, My brother in law recently purchased a property on Ely Lake. All the boys are invited up this year on Memorial. Unfortunately nobody in the family has been on the lake before. I thought I would reach out to the pros here on the forum to see if anyone would be willing to give us a few tips on fishing this lake. Thanks in advance, Dan

      Hey Forum, My brother in law just purchased on Ely Lake. Memorial weekend will be the first time on lake. Wondering if anyone has some experience/tips they would be willing to offer the Ely lake rookies. Thanks so much. Dan

      I made it out last Sunday and did some searching for walleye. The search didn't produce any walleyes, just northerns and smallies. The water temp on the main lake was 58-59 with the bays being about 5 degrees warmer. The people I have talked to have had similar issues finding the eyes. We missed some fish that left the shiner all chewed up. Most of the fish marked were out in that 18-21 foot range which seemed pretty deep for this early. It could have been Saturday's cold front that pushed them a little deeper though.

      SRJ - Thanks for the report.  I heard the bite was very-good to excellent, off the rocks/reefs, in the mud/sand.  I will be at the lake fishing this weekend.

      What a couple perfect days for LOW on Monday-Tuesday. Fish seemed to be biting well from shallow to deep and from the south side to up north.  Caught fish from 7 - 28 feet in good numbers and sized from small to large. There seemed to be a lot more fish on sand and mud than rocks. Quite a few males caught near rocks were full of milt. Biggest an 28 1/4. Most on jig and minnow but some on crankbaits. Sure a big pack of charters hanging around the Knight Island shoal. Warm, calm and no bugs!! Hope Memorial weekend winds stay light. My new to me Ipilot Link Bluetooth remote somehow changed to German, Dutch or some other language on the display. Anybody ever have that happen? Good luck this weekend.

      Nah it was maybe 6-7 inch, maybe it'll be a keeper next year.
    • Stephen L Johnston Jr.
      Wow, thats like a 15lb walleye given that length. Wish i could see such a Waldo, too bad they are not part of this forum!
    • jigging-matt
