Tioga has to many charges and ends up being expensive, the
wilderness lodge is much nicer and cheaper and the hunt is
just as good if not better. Nice people and a beautiful
lodge that is really cheap for the night and the breakfast
and lunches were really good. All these hunts are the same
and take them for what they are but after being to both of
these places the wilderness lodge was much better overall.
Mohr's island hunts is a non fenced in area, the pigs and
rams are on an island in the river somewhere I believe it's
either Lebanon or Lancaster county?
you said that tioga has to many charges???? you have your hunt...you pay for lodging if you need to stay..just like anywhere else... then if you want it cut up thats all the charges.. it's going to be the same no matter where you go also tioga is the only place in pa where you will hunt true wild boar...not farm raised like most places are.. these are from the wild.. very aggresive pigs..
The wilderness doesn't charge you for cutting up the meat
and skinning like Tioga does. Tioga has a small old farm
house for a lodge. The wilderness has a big brand new lodge
with meals for $25 a night, Tioga was $75 a night and not
nearly as nice. The guides at both places were nice and
did a good job and the meals at both were pretty good. The
hunts at both places were fun and both have decent animals.
The Wilderness's specialty is trophy whitetails and Tioga's
specialty is boars but both places have other animals too.
The boars honestly didn't act real wild at either places,
some did but most would let you walk up and shoot them with
a bow if you wanted to. I am not knocking Tioga I am just
saying that of the two I have been to the wilderness was a
much nicer and cheaper experience.
The reason they didn't act wild is because they are farm raised by a guy over near Coudersport and sold to the game preserves. You could probably just go to his house and shoot one and it would be cheaper.
