Re: pa hog hunt

I went to Mohr's exotic Island In Bainbridge pa you can read my review here: http://www.echunters.com/mohrs-exotic-island-hunt/

Also check my article on butchering hogs if you go.

I should have the video done editing some time this week.

Re: pa hog hunt

Since you are going to wait another year save your money and go south for a real wild hog hunt, they aren't all that expensive and it is a better experience. There are several people on this site tha can give you names of outfitters they have used.




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

Re: pa hog hunt

If you are going to wait till next year do what John S said. I would also suggest going to the sportsman show there is usually some crazy hunt specials the last few days of the shows and you can get a awesome deal. Only issue about going south is remember you will need room in your vehicle for at least 1 if not multiple pigs and all your gear.

Re: pa hog hunt

If you are waiting, the guys above are right. If you want to do it this year I would suggest Wilderness PA.

We did a hunt there last June and it was top notch. They have hogs of all kinds and nice ones. The accomodations were great and the hospitality was even better.

Re: pa hog hunt

I also agree with JohnS, Backwoods, and genxweb if you are going next year. I have hunted hogs in Texas, PA, and South Carolina. The hunt in South Carolina was the most rewarding for me. I also hunted exotics on Mohr's island while other hunters were hunting hogs. The hogs they were hunting are Carolina hogs and look just like farm hogs. I am not knocking this hunt because all of the hunters had a great time. I am just letting you know the type of hogs they have.

Re: pa hog hunt

When I was in Texas I was fortunate enough to hunt a co-worker's ranch out by Burnet. I shot a half-dozen hogs, some big, some not as big. I wandered and got lost after shooting a hog on the run and gutting and dragging to the road where an hour after dark they came looking for me and found me. That was fun. Real fun. The rest were shot over feeders and offered no more challenge than at a preserve. Some preserves may be barnyard, others are fun challenging hunts. When we used to travel to a friend (guy stood up in my wedding in '97 - he's a good friend) in Macon GA we used to shoot them from the truck. Yeah they were wild but I wouldn't consider that more sporting than a good preserve. I've killed better than twenty hogs in my entire lifetime, most wild down south or in Texas. I've killed five at preserves. I enjoyed the preserves most because it was a scheduled deal with friends that we looked forward to and did together. And the meat was all very good. Shooting a hog at a feeder in East Texas while waiting to see a deer was fun, but didn't get the heart pumping. Saw them everytime out on that ranch. Saw them while driving on the ranch roads, while sitting on the ranch porch, while sitting in deer blinds, etc. About as sporting as a trip to the grocery store. The preserves are what you make of them.
