We have our annual hog hunting trip scheduled for mid January, upcoming. This seems to be a good time for us, coming after all our big game seasons have ended (and the withdrawl that brings) along with giving us a holiday weekend to work with, which helps with planning and vacation time. The weather where we have been going, south central Georgia, does vary widely with mornings as cold a 14* to afternoons where we see mosquitos buzzing around.
I'd suppose most of the swamps or wet areas have been moistened by winter rains as well. Actually one of our favorite areas was too wet last season, especially after a monsoon like rain on day one of our hunt.
Any other ideas from hog hunters out there as to best timing, best month or when they enjoy their hunts the most? One other plus in going to Georgia after mid January is that the deer hunters are finished by then normally and the woods are a bit quieter. This does lead to one more question and that is if it might be better to wait another couple weeks to go and let the woods quiet down even more. Of course the down side there is that other hog hunters may have hit the same areas already and taken some hogs already. The place we hunt seems to take their largest hogs at this time, late winter. Is that common?
