Texas. Over run with Hogs. Look at Texas Hunting Forum, Lot of good guys on there. They will guide you in the right direction. They have no problem telling you who to stay away from. Tell them luvpigmeet sent ya!

I've hunted in Georgia, Florida, and Texas. All good states with reputable outfitters. Going DIY is going to be tough, especially if you don't have reliable intel or time to scout. Some outfitters will offer hunts from baited stands, with night vision equipment, or with dogs; dogs offer the highest chance of success, since hogs are basically nocturnal. Prices will be all over the place, night vision hunting will probably cost the most, but on average you should be able to find an outfitter around $300-$400/day if you shop around. Send me a PM if you have specific questions.

Catch & release is for guys who don't know how to cook

A hog hunt is definitely something I want to try. I was considering going to Georgia in the Spring. A guided hunted hunt is probably the path I'm going since I've never done it and don't know the area.

Loshbough in TN

Took my kids down this spring. Now, it is a pen, but it is a really big pen. We put 8.1 miles on the first afternoon IAW a GPS.



The eyes are blurred as a joke on a different forum, the pigs identities are protected also

The hunt price is a little more, but it costs the same or a bit less overall than to do a TX or OK hunt because of extra meals and lodging you need for travel. I was planning of doing a OK hunt, but I couldnt get a slot in the period I had off. So I started to look elsewhere. I rented a minivan and took a buddy so there were 4 of us. My buddy got the first which was a russian at about 9A day one. They for kicks we tried the dogs, which is a sprint stalk. You chase after the bay, then stalk the last 70 yards, then the pigs break, and you do it again, thus the 8.1 miles. The pigs bayed up one and the daughter took it. The son and I doubled the next morning taking ours at the same time. We went in June just after the son was out of school, and we had the lodge to ourselves. Downside it was warm. We were hunting in 90F by 10A.

Bring coolers. They will cut and wrap there. Get roasts, mild and hot sausage, and chops. I am not thrilled by the ham steaks so I would say get them as sausage or roasts.

Leave the partitions at home. 8 out of 9 out of 30-06's did not expand enough to stop the pig. I loaded them for my family, and wont use them again on anything. The story is on here somewhere. My buddies 06 with gamekings dropped his in one shot. I would say a slow heavy bullet in a open sight rifle or a 2X scope would be perfect. If I go again, I am taking the 32Spl.

Every day you see it on the news. Another felons life needlessly spared by inaccurate fire.

I've gone with Gary Frye in Georgia. His place is happyacresexpeditions.com He does primitive only. Bow or crossbow but I've never met a harder working guide. I've gone quite a few times with Gary have no reason to go anywhere else. I've even gone Gator with him...taken my daughter too.

Tell him Sab said hey if you talk to him

Sab, yup thats my name...

I will second the recommendation for Loshbough in Tennessee. We booked a hunt for my son for his spring break from the U.S. Coast Guard Academy since he wasn't able to be home for any PA hunting seasons. Since the hunt took place in March the weather was great for hunting, cool but not too cold, and like Varmintmist we had the place to ourselves. I'll also confirm that while it's fenced private property it's a BIG chunk of land! We hunted from a blind, did a spot & stalk with guides, and then went out with the dogs which is when my son got the boar shown in the photo. I'll also recommend bringing coolers and having them cut & wrap the meat which is fantastic! It's a great experience and we'd like to make another trip back there sometime in the future. The staff and our guide were great, the lodgings were comfortable, and the hunting experience was excellent.

My Dad has helped me a TON on the cabin and I'm thinking about taking him on a hog hunt! Not only a small token of my appreciation but some more quality time. Anyone have some up to date info or intel on outfitters? Would like to stay as close to PA as possible so we don't burn days traveling.

Are we at camp yet?
