Hog hunting HELP

Hi,
Im a college student from PA, my roommate and I are literally dying to head south for a week to try some hog hunting (archery mainly). Being college students, money is kind of an issue, so we would like to avoid any pay-to-hunt operations. We would greatly appreciate it if someone could point us in the right direction or recommend someone who would welcome us to get some pork. The only week we could do it is during our spring break(March 14-22), unfortunately it is then a closed season for public lands, narrowing down our only option- to find somebody with private land that would let us hunt for a few days.
Thank you,
-Dan

Hog hunting HELP

Right now we have narrowed our options down to either the savannah nwr hog hunt, or ft stewart. Can anyone recommend either of these or any other place?

Hog hunting HELP

Hog hunting and deer hunting are near the same when talking about archery. I hunted fla. and guided there for years for hogs and the main way to take them is with dogs. The tv shows you see are canned hunts that is why they never tell you exactly where the hunt is but always the name of the farm and the outfit. Hogs are nomadic not territorial they have no rhyme or reason to their movements unless it is a dry year and water is scarce. Then you may get them at a watering hole. Your best bet is to contact a hunting club in the area you are going, remember s.carolina has a big population and its closer, and then offer one of the guys a few bucks to take you out. Remember he has to feed,and doctor those dogs. You may even find someone who has a feeder up he will let you hunt over. Good Luck

Smartellick!! neener! Sigh but good advise! LOL...As NY said...Hogs are nomadic and alot of times when spooked out of an area you wont see them back there again for a LONG time if ever...OR...Sometimes you will see them 20 minutes later. But one thing about hogs is...They are some smart little critters!!! Just sometimes they dont use them smarts.. There is absolutly NO telling what a hog is going to do from one minute to the next. So like ole smarty britches said... If you get a shot...DONT MISS!
