Don't have any preserve recommendations, but he may want to look into going down south for a wild hog hunt. The cost difference really isn't that much.

My son and I are going to GA on a guided hunt in June. GA has a similar MY program so my son does not need a license to hunt. He is only 10.

Just to give you an example for my son and I for a 4 day hunt it will cost us about $550 each. If we had a couple more in our group it would about $450 each. This includes lodging but no food.

I believe that most preserves are at least this much if not more to kill one hog. The hunt above is unlimited although since they are wild there is no guarantees.

Anyway just a thought.

Tioga is NOT at the top of my "recommend" list.

Best preserve hunt anywhere. The animals are wild and true wild boar, not farm hogs. The hunting land is huge and you WILL hunt hard for them. I went with my girlfriend for her first hunt and we will be going back as it was as realistic as any "wild" hunt I've been on.

Thank you for posting this information. I have hunted wild boar a number of times, mostly in Florida but also Texas and two preserve hunts, Tioga in Pennsylvania and Hillside in Aurora Maine. I too would like to do a hunt that isn't too far from home. One of my concerns is that the hunt would be too easy. I don't want to shoot a hog that was just let out of the pen. It seems like that type of hunting is growing. There are many places in Florida where trapped feral boar are put in a fenced in area and shot for a fee.

Contact the preserve you want to check out and see if you can go and take a tour of the place and see what you are getting for your money and see what kind of hunt the can offer you. If one of them can't do that for you, at no charge, then stay away from them cause they probably have something to hide.

WYTETAIL,

That is a good looking boar. Don't look like any barnyard dweller for sure.

I've been on a preserve hunt once a long time ago, and it was fun but not really much of a challenge except to make the shot.

How was your experience on that big guy?

How did he taste?

I have hunted wild boar in Texas from a blind overlooking a feeder. Those were "free range" boar. Adam's preserve is much more sporting and challenging than sitting over a feeder. The boar are as wild as any boar anywhere. Anyone who says a quality preserve is somehow less challenging or sporting than siting over a feeder has likely never done either. Here's picture of my wife with her boar from last February.

CONGRATULATIONS WYTETAIL (AND MRS. WYTETAIL).

Both boars look nothing like feral hogs; instead they look like Russians.

Were they Russians?

And (asked in first question) how did they taste?

Again, congratulations.

Man if my wife hunted we would have fantastic hunts; wouldn't have to dedicate any money on "non-hunting" vacations.

The meat was very good. Got alot of sausage made and family members raided my supply on the last one. This one we've eaten the inside loins, some chops, sausage and a few steaks. All outstanding.
