late winter Hog hunting

My job requires that I take one of my vacations before the end of April every year.I hate to waste a vacation week.Does anybody have a good recommendation for a hog hunt? We always went to Black River Plantation in S.C..but they changed owners several times since then and the reviews haven't been too good lately.Looking towards S.C. or maybe GA.Lots of good looking hunts in FLA.but I don't think we want to drive that far.

Re: late winter Hog hunting

How about in PA? I know of one outfit off of interstate 80 "think its off the shippenville exit". There is also one up in Tioga county. Probably a little more pricey, but if you figure in the gas money your going to spend driving out of state, could be worth it. www.doubleboarranch.com/ www.tiogaboarhunting.com My grandfather and I actually stoppe by the double boar ranch and took a little tour. The lodge was really nice and the Husband/Wife seemed really nice and down to earth. Plus I think hunting a hog with snow on the ground would be awesome

Re: late winter Hog hunting

Forgot to mention, my grandfather took me on a hog hunt when I was 9. We went to Tennessee and hunted out of the "Crooked Creek Lodge". There was a group of 8 of us and we all scored on hogs. Dont know if they are still around though

Re: late winter Hog hunting

Thanks,but not interested in the local preserves. I went to a few of them years ago,lots of fun,but looking more for a free ranging hunt in the swamps down south.All the preserves I went to were like hunting in a zoo.

Re: late winter Hog hunting

I plan on a late season hog hunt as well. Mine will be in the Ocala FL area, I have found a lot of information by joining a Florida shooting forum. I would guess either of the states you listed would have State forums that would be helpful. I have also found Ocala outfitters on Craigslist Ocala.

Re: late winter Hog hunting

I went to Back Water Boars in Georgia at the begining of the summer. 6 of us got 6 hogs, me and another guy missed and 2 guys got 2. Anthony does a great job and the food is good. I found the place from a couple of of members on here.

Re: late winter Hog hunting

I'm putting together another trip down to Georgia in January to my normal guy. Been down there a bunch of times for hogs and gator. Shoot me a PM and I'll send you info, we might even have room for 1 more if you wanna think about jumping in with us. He only does bow hunts. No gun. I've written about him before here. Fow whatever reason this site is not letting me sign in under my name so I had to re register. My old name was cwa1104sab. you can search for that if it helps

Re: late winter Hog hunting

I spend a few days per year in January and February hunting hogs in GA. I find plenty of hogs on public ground and usually hunt them with a .22 mag during small game season. However, several of the WMA's around the state have a special firearms season from March 1-10 each year. Its not a guarantee score but my buddies have not gone away empty handed on any of their hunts.

I'll be heading down to one of the WMAs with some friends from PA come March and should have a good time. Access to a boat really helps but isn't necessary if you don't oppose walking.

I'm keeping my eyes open for a boat and if I can find one in the next year or so and thought about offering some hunts.

Re: late winter Hog hunting

What about NC? Anyone ever hunt for hogs there? Not too far of a drive.
What about T&M Hunting Properties? Seems reasonable. Fair chase, no fence, good price.. Anyone ever hunt there?
