hog/boar hunt

Thinking of going on a boar hunt early next year probably Feb. sometime for a birthday present to myself. Can't decide if it would be better to go to a preserve here in PA or close surrounding area or going further south like Alabama or Georgia were I can harvest multiple animals for about the same hunt cost plus the added travel expense. I REALLY don't want to shoot a barn yard pig left out 2 days before I go hunting either. I want to "hunt" not pick one out and shoot. So I am asking for past experiences and recommendations on where to go.

Several of us on this site have hunted with this outfitter.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

Re: hog/boar hunt

Go to Georgia and do a public land hunt! DIY is more fun

I go every February and this will be my third year. So far we have a 100% success rate.

Big Boar Lodge, NY

I know, I know, canned hunt right? Still a beautiful area and alot of fun for the money. I don't know about you, but I've got responsibilities that don't allow me a week to up and go to Georgia and hunt land I've never seen before. Wish I had that kind of time.

The link above should help you find what you need to know. We just found out a few days ago that all of the WMA's for GA are now on Google Earth.

There is no bag limit on hogs. Most DNR folks would prefer you kill them all.

We went to Happy Acre Expeditions in Southern Georgia this July. Gary Frye runs a top notch operation. Beautiful lodge and plenty of hogs running around. Prices are really reasonable.
