hog hunting

I am from wisconsin and am hoping to try to find a place to hog hunt next winter. I don't really want to hunt in a high fence preserve. What I would really like to do is find some public (or maybe private) land to hunt for a week. The biggest problem is that I don't have a clue where to start on getting info as to all of the land info and even what state would be the best. Any info would be appreciated.

Thanks

hog hunting

I just did a hunt at Cypress Creek hunting lodge in Fairfax, SC. We had a really good time and saw quite a few hogs. I harvested a 130 lb. sow that was a feral hog. They also have pure russians running in thier property. It is real fair chase hunting none of that high fence garbage. Also there is no dogs used for hogs at this property. I personally will not use a dog for hogs, but that is up to the individual hunter.This was my first ever hog hunt, so you maybe able to find a better hunting location, but at least it is a place to start your search.

If you happen to find a really good public place for hogs, please let me know.

SGT, You should really try a Dog for Boar hunt at least once....Man oh man is that exciting !!!!
Nothing inhumane about it, the dogs dont mutilate or tear up the hog....actually quite the opposite if the dogs are not experienced or make a mistake.
Even though I dont use hounds/bulldogs anymore I grew up hunting this way. It is now illegal here in florida to transport a live wild boar.

Birddog,
You can contact the FT Stewart military base in Ga (and a few other bases and some other grounds that I know about) and set up a hog/deer hunt there. I believe the permit is free and you can get it through the mail from them. You only have to buy a Ga hunting license and get a hotel or campground. Should be an inexpensive hunt with a great chance for success! I had a hunt planned for there several yrs ago but due to a family situation I was unable to go but, I had all the paper work and maps and lodging set up. Also you can get into some of the lottery drawings for permits to hunt specific state lands where they only allow a certain number of hunters at a time onto the property. These hunts are very successful due to the need for management and the fact that they only allow a few hunters. I drew a "ticket to hunt" Osabaw Island on that trip and was going to spend a few days at Ft Stewart and 3 days on Osabaw Island. It took me 3 yrs of sending in the application to draw that hunt.

yea the knot is tied.
they are startin to get hairy this time of year but by the time you come in is when they are the hariest and they tend to be a little meaner too. the cooler temps get them as fired up as the dogs. they'll be big hairy and good eatin. they ain't bad mountin hogs now just a little thin.
