Re: Feral Hog Hunting Trip Recommedations
I finally lucked out and got an invite to hunt hogs at a work-colleagues ranch in TX (going in 2 weeks). Took me 20 years to make that kind of connection!
Like others have said, Deerfield Plantation is a nice place. You pay to hunt there but it's not high fence. I've never solely hog hunted there but have shot 3 hogs while deer hunting. Unfortunately I only recovered one of them. If you do not hit them in the head and drop them on the spot in a place like SC with jungle-like vegetation... they do not leave blood trails and can run for a mile, no matter what caliber gun you shoot them with. I would not have believed that if I hadn't bowled 2 of them over w/a 300 Win Mag. The one somersaulted in the air when I hit him and was laying on his side motionless. 10 seconds later he got up and ran away across a cut field into the thickest stuff you have ever seen. The other was in the swamp, blasted him and he was on the ground doing the leg kick, then he rolled out of view - that was the last I saw of him. In both cases we beat the bush w/5 or 6 people, never found nuthin! Owner of Deerfield commented after the 2nd one he's shot probably a hundred hogs in the body and never found any of them. Aim for the head!
They are tough critters!
When was the last time you heard somebody say "Go ahead, it's a free country"?
