4 weeks......

4 Weeks until my first ever pig hunt.  Getting stoked.  Sent in the $$$$ and application yesterday.  It's an unguided hunt, basically you are just paying an access fee.  One half of the ranch is open for this hunt, so it's ONLY about 130,000 acres (no fences).  But, there are 30 people going, so that only leaves about 4,500 acres per person.  Might be a tight fit..... lol

I get from noon on Friday to the end of the day Sunday.  Hopefully I will get into them.  No trophy fees, the only thing they ask you not to shoot is lactating sows. The December hunt was the full ranch (270,000 acres), had about 100 hunters, and they did right about 50% success rate.  Pretty good for unguided hunts.

Four weeks is closing in

Four weeks is closing in fast. Gotta be getting pretty excited now I bet. What kind of strategy do you have in mind? What's the land like? Will you be busting brush or glassing grassy areas or fields in the mornings and evenings?

I've hunted them both ways and it's exciting no matter how you do it if you get into them. I forget on this one, you using your bow or rifle this time?

You almost have to feel sorry

You almost have to feel sorry for those hunters that don't get out and enjoy any of the spring hunts that are available.  These 4 weeks are going to go fast for you just waiting to get out after those hogs. 

I myself have 4 weeks also before I am in Arizona after javelina and the party that goes with it.  I am also down to less than 5 months to go before I head to British Colombia for my bear hunt.  In a couple of months I'll need to pack and unpack a few times to get to my limit of 60 pounds of clothing and gear, but that is part of the fun of it.
