Hog Hunt

I was thinking about doing a hog hunt at Island Exotics. Has anyone been there and did you enjoy the hunt?

Re: Hog Hunt

Nope and I wouldn't ever go there! Exotic Island, what a joke. Spend your money on a real hog hunt for hogs that weren't raised in a pen and turned loose to be shot. You will have more fun and feel better about yourself.




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 Hunt

I know someone that went, and the hogs they were to "hunt" went across the the island on the boat with them. They were set loose then they went to find them and shoot them.
Not a way I would want to "hunt". But to each their own.

Re: Hog Hunt

can you shoot them in the boat on the way over, i dont want to get my feet muddy!

ps: I have been on many canned hunts, (One hog we had to wake up to shoot)


check into The wilderness, or the tioga ranch, I think the wilderness in the best experience you can get for a canned hunt.
look

Re: Hog Hunt

do they castrate the hogs to make them even more like a farm hog?

I hunted with a guide several years at Deerfield Plantation who's mother and stepfather owned and operated a 20,000 acre shooting preserve in Florida.

She told me that they did in fact trap a percentage of the young boars and castrate them, then turn them lose. When adults, the castrated males made the best eating hogs if that's what a client was after (an eating hog as opposed to a trophy boar).

Re: Hog Hunt

That will be a little tough for under 800.00 for wild hogs but check for wild boar hunts on google to see what is available. I am leaving soon for a hunt in GA for 800.00, 2 days of hunting three nights lodging and food while I am there, allowed 2 hogs. I thought that was a pretty good price.
