Hunt option for kids.

I am thinking about taking my boys on a trip in 2017. The idea is to make it a Christmas gift. I usually set a limit of 3-400$ per kid. I think this should get me close to a Hog Hunt. I would like to keep it less than an 8hr drive from NW PA.

I would also consider an out of state turkey hunt.

Any ideas on public ground or an outfitter?

Re: Hunt option for kids.

I think i would take them to a place like Tioga boar preserve.

I personally never went to one of these fence hunts but I wish I would have taken my son when he was little. maybe if I did he would have liked hunting. I did take him out for doe hunting & squirrel hunting, but we never harvested anything and he lost interest.

Try Big Buck Down in Ohio. He has night Boar hunting over bait. These are free range hunts. 2 nights of Hunting for $400 person. 1 Boar per person. Near Logan Ohio.

Re: Hunt option for kids.

If you don't mind driving a little further you could go down to Georgia. My son and I went to this place a few years ago. We weren't successful, but had a good time. We took food for our own meals. This was about the most reasonable hunt I could find. This is no fence, wild hogs.

Traditions only last if you pass them down to your kids!

I would look at a spring gobbler hunt.They can be booked cheap and nothing is better to keep a kid's interest than turkey hunting.You may be able to find a decent hog hunt in Tennessee or some placer like cspot mentioned.

Turkey and Hog would be tops on the list. Thanks for the info so far.

I am probably out of line, but I would think you could put a young hunter in front of deer, turkey or small game and be successful (get a shot) on a first hunt in PA. Cost = a little time.

Re: Hunt option for kids.

The boys will be 13 this fall. Gage has been very successful over the last few years killing 2 5pts and 4 doe. He has also taken pheasant and squirrels.

Aidan, my stepson has only hunted for 2 seasons. But he has gotten his first deer last season.

For the record, they put alot of time in each fall.

Just thought a weekend trip would be a good experience for them.
