Los Padres pigs

Does anybody know where to find pigs in Los Padres National Forest? I've heard there are good numbers of pigs there but I don't know where to start.Any info would be appreciated. Oh by the way this is my first post, and I have to say this is the best site I've found for hunting info. Thanks in advance!

Los Padres pigs

Hey...first, welcome to the forum.

As far as pigs go, I'm not sure how much help I'll be, as I'm new to pig hunting as well. Have you looked at the DFG's online booklet about pigs/boars? It has some useful information.

Pigs are all over this state; the trick seems to be finding them where (1) it's OK to hunt, (2) it's accessible, and (3) you're not competing with too many other hunters. I've heard that Fort Hunter Liggett and Camp Roberts are good mid-state places to start. The area around Lake Berryessa is supposed to be good, too. Further north, the coastal areas have some good spots.

I hope to have some more useful information in a few weeks; if I do, I'll likely put it in the pig forum. You might want to check there at some time. Good luck...

mzimmers,
Thank you for the reply. I was beginning to think that there were no Cal. hunters on this site. I'll be watching for your post in the Wild Pig forum.
