Sharpstick first off Welcome to BGH!!! Second off...Just about all the southern states have hogs and MOST of them have hog PROBLEMS! So about all of them have open seasons year round on hogs and have plentiful #'s. South Carolina, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, And Texas are your most prevolent Hog States.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
