Weta, Welcome to BGH! I haven't hunted Hogs before in Colorado but I've heard that they have a place outside of Pueblo that has some. Even if we do have some here, Texas has a ton of places to hunt pigs.
There is no season for pig hunting in Colorado. The only way you're going to hunt pigs in Colorado is if someone has set up a "canned" hunt, where you're basically going out and shooting fenced hogs. You want to hunt pigs I suggest Texas.
sorry so late.
I was just checking out your old post and saw that you wanted to hunt some pigs in colorado.
I have finnely found an outfitter that has hogs in Utah, if that helps.
These are russion and ferrel hog mixed. They mixed the russion hog for the wild look and the farrle hog for size. I just booked hunts for all my friends and am excited to go. The ranch is 5000 acres and yes, you will have to hunt for them. The thing Im excited for is that the pigs range in size from 350-900lbs. I have seen pictures of a 600 pig and if you call the guy, he will send a vidio of portions of some of the hunts taking place. He also has 15 different types of sheep and goats too. I hope this helps.

He has been griping & complaining about "wild hogs" on his place for years. He has all the other hunting rights leased out for $$$ but he's been happy to let hog hunters in in the past. If he's in a good mood he might even drag out his plane and locate them from the air for you. This is NOT high fence hunting.
Bring a snowmobile.....this is the 50th day of deep snowcover this winter.
There are a few area in the eastern Plains that have a small population of wild feral hogs mostly down near The Oklahoma border you can contact the DOW and try to get info on where but they might give you ranchers info because of the privacy act deal
When it comes to scent, there are basically two types; those that attract and those that mask. I've tried both on many occasions. There are lots and lots of "doe in heat" scents, designed to attract a big buck into range. I've also used a "cow in heat" scent while elk hunting.
Another scent would almost be better named as a "coverup smell". The main goal is to cover up human odor or mask it. Though I don't believe you can ever totally eliminate all human...
