Boar Hunting in Southern California

Hi guys,

I am new at the message board and hunting in general. I have been on one hunting trip for boar about a year ago with a friend and loved the experience.

I had a couple questions. First I was wondering if anyone knows of any good places to hunt some boar, that is located on public land. When we went about a year ago, we hunted laguna mountain and had no success. I am open for any suggestions or ideas. Anything would be greatly appreciated.

Second, I purchased a Benelli Super Black Eagle II and was wondering what steps I should take with it, as far as bullet purchase etc. to have the most successful boar hunt possible.

Thanks for your time.

You probably would have a better chance of getting a pig with a rifle or even a pistol than a shotgun. Some places only allow shotgun hunting so I think it can be done, but most people use slugs with a rifled barrel.

Thanks for the response granite.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to where me and couple of my friends can hunt in the southern california area for boars. I know private ranches is the way to go, but are there any public land alternatives? Any suggestions would be great.

Saba,

Are you talking about Mt. Laguna recreation area down near Pine Valley???? I deer hunt there during archery season.

If so, don't know of any pigs this far south....

Im not exactly sure if Pine Valley is the same as Hollister. I am thinking of just Laguna Mountain as it appears on the BLM. Im not as familiar with the area as I wish I was. If Pine Valley is in the Hollister district than we may be talking about the same Laguna Mountain. If we are talking about the same Laguna Mountain, thats a little discouraging that you havent seen any pig. I havent seen one and my friend has been a handful of times and he as only seen one pig.

I take'em on the Los Padres NF...all the time. I still consider that So.Cal, it just takes alot of scouting and work, but the easy way is private ranches.

There are many places to hunt hog that borders ranches, but you have to be around the areas quite a big to know when and where they are. Places that border the Tejon or the Santa Ana river bed are a few.

I have a ranch in Glennville Ca which is just out of Bakersfield with hogs running through... check my website

Good luck
