My brother in law came up with a friend this weekend and we hunted from Thursday to Saturday. Bro in law missed a HUGE hog, he figures about 400 lbs. He said the hog's shoulders were about 2 feet wide over the top. I was surprised walking in to hunt a new place with a 150 pound boar about 20 yards away. Gun was in the wrong hand and too much stuff in the right one. He heard the noise as I tried to set up the shot and went in the bushes. Oh well, I would have probably felt bad about shooting him as I was not at my hunting spot anyway.

Do you use dogs when hog hunting? That seems to be the most popular way to do it down here in SWFL.

No, I usually stand hunt them.

I have hunted some farms the past couple of years where the hogs hang with the cattle.  These hogs were really too tame for me.  I could stalk up on them in bow range out in an open pasture. 

I am now back on a club that is out in the boonies.  See http://www.terraserver-usa.com/addressimage.aspx?t=1&s=14&lon=-82.9303639542344&lat=30.9406463510148&alon=-82.99649728&alat=30.94068522&w=2&ref=A%7cStockton%2c+Georgia .  The hogs there are really wild.

Ever hear of hog trials? I have a couple buddies that do them. I think some of them are held in Valdalsta actually.

I am not really interested in that sort of thing. But, they seem to be good, clean fun. They are held about 15 miles SE of my club. I understand the state of GA has implemented several regulations that will make it a bit tougher on the folks to stage the event. These items include stuff like brucellosis testing the hogs and so forth. I understand that many of the local non-dog hunters hold the opinion that the hog trials have lead to the reduction of hog numbers in our area. They believe this because it is told that the folks staging the hog trials will purchase wild hogs to stage the event. I understand that a number of hogs are needed to promote such an event.

Interesting. I really know nothing about it but that is certainly food for thought. My best friend since the age of 4 does those things. I should go out hunting with him sometime just to see what its all about. He tells me often that they will catch a few hogs and let them go. I asked him "let them go, why?". He daid "you catch and release fish, don't you?". I guess he's right.

Most hog doggers put their catch in a pen to fatten up on corn prior to slaughter.
