Hog Hunt in GA?

Hey everyone, I had a website for a hog hunt in GA, but my computer crashed and I lost the website. If John S. checks this I believe he was who I originally got the website from. Any help with different outfitters and experiences in GA would be a great help. I would love to plan a hog hunt soon!

I am planning another hunt with them this winter.




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

I can 2nd, Johns suggestion. I've hunted with these guys 3 times and its a great experience. Lots of hogs and I would highly recommend spot and stalk. I can't explain it, you need to experience it for yourself.

How long are the shots? Looks like a fun place and do you get to pass on a shot with spot and stalk ?

Backwater Boars! Easy drive right down I-95 - My buddy and I did the nearly last hog hunt of the year there in March of this year - we killed 3- each one @140lbs or so - spot and stalk hunt - it was the most difficult walking I have ever done and I work out nearly every day! Be prepared! They also offer dog hunts which also require lots of walking or baited blind hunts which are much easier but looked boring to me...

I shot one at 30 feet in hip high marsh grass and one at 3 feet and even then it was virtually invisible - but I saw terrain where a 100yard shot was possuble. My buddy had a slug gone which seemed right - I had a 300 saum which was way overkill but it worked just fine

Re: Hog Hunt in GA?

Thanks for the site John! That's the one I was thinking of. I've been thinking about trying their dog hunt. I just need to get the funds saved up, haha.

Re: Hog Hunt in GA?

A little late seeing this, but if you dont mind a do it yourself hunt, hogs are a nuisance in GA and with a little studying you could be successful on a WMA. They might not be as big as some of those on a guided hunt but I believe you would come out a good bit cheaper. Just thought I would throw that out as food for thought.
