I'm from Ohio and my friend and I, both of whom are retired wanted to go to Virginia to hunt hogs with our bows. I found out that it is only in the fall and three is a quota system in place. What are the chances for two guys to get drawn for this hunt? Is it like the Pa Elk drawing that even most people from Pa don't have a chance to get?
Is it possible to hunt hogs on Priviate land other than in the fall and if so what are the chances to get permission? My friend and I just want to set up camp somewhere and hut for a week or two like you use to be able to do. It seems lately all the effort is placed on the killing and not the hunting. Camping with friends and just enjoying each other company and God's beauty is what hunting is all about. Not a gauranted kill in 2 to 3 days or a fenced in hunt is really hunting.
I understand that today people lives are so busy trying to make ends meet that it is a fence in hunt or nothing and I'm not knocking that or your preference. It is just not the hunting that it use to be and that is what my friend and I are loking for. Ed is 68 years old and I'm 56 years old. We both have had heart surgry and health problems however we can still hunt at our speed and enjoy the outdoors. The weather does effect us more that when we were young and in good shape that is why we want to hunt the Southern part of the USA that is still close to Ohio. Neither of us have much money, but would be willing to pay something for the use of the land and possible setting up out camper for a week or two.
Anyone have any information on this subject please let me know.
