Trade Some Great Pig Hunting for a Trophy Midwest Whitetail?

Hey out there!

Just moved to California from the midwest and don't have anywhere to hunt. I'd love to do some pig hunting (and maybe upland game and/or other big game) on some safe private land.

I'd be open to trading some hunting time on your ranch/farm for a week of great Missouri trophy whitetail hunting (private cattle farm in Northeast Missouri). Of course - I'm always up for just helping you control your pig population. I've been hunting for well over a decade and am a very safe and ethical sportsman.

If you've got room for a hunter please let me know - I'd be greatly appreciative!

Regards,

Grant

Any Cali. hunters?

Hi, my name is Rod ,and I'm from northern Ca....the Redding area.I'm originally from Pa and hunted whitetails sucsessfully with gun and bow.However I've been out here for 15 years now and still cannot figure out these blacktails.Don't get me wrong I have had some sucsess, but luck seems to play a much bigger role! Last year a buddy and I went to Oregon for elk(archery). We're planning that trip again....the only problem is that we didn't see elk until I went deep into a wilderness area,and my buddy is physically unable to go the distance. Now I've come to the realization that I will be hauling out the elk on my own and will be up to the task come season.Is anyone else in the same predicament?

How's it going

HI, my name is Nick and I am 20 originally from Foresthill CA in the middle of D4 deer zone. I've hunted all over that area since I started hunting and there are quite a bit of good bucks in D3-5 if you just know how to find them and are very patient. I'm into both archery and using rifles. I primarily hunt for deer, elk, and upland game birds.

I recently moved to San Luis Obispo to go to Cal Poly and recently got into Pig hunting. I've found a few spots, but if anyone else in the area knows of any spots or wants to go pig hunting let me know. Or if anyone has some private land in the area that I could help out with yard work or anything else in exchange for hunting rights just let me know.

Also If anyone knows of any general areas that I could scout for deer in the area I'd really appreciate it. I'm trying to learn as much of the area as I can while i'm down here for school.

If guys are wondering about pigs on public land. There has been some talk on some other forums about people seeing sign up around Indian Valley along walker ridge road. You can also hunt pigs at lake Sonoma with a bow and sometimes with a shotgun. Another place to look, but gets hit pretty hard, is around New Idria.

I have poor success on public land for pigs. I have killed them on private land though. I do not have the time to put in for hogs on public land right now. you have to put in a lot of time on public land to catch when the hogs are moving through the areas. I don't deer hunt much anymore here in California. I mostly waterfowl hunt now, but I do some other hunting when I get a chance.

Sorry to interupt, but im kinda new here

I have been a long time shooter but am thinking more and more about going hunting. I was wondering what I need to do and what would be a good place within 4 hours of Los Angeles.

Any help is greatly appreciated.
