    I read the below article that said Caldwell TX was the epicenter for the fight against feral hogs.

    So I looked into the below reasonably priced ranch in the area. The local reviews said that the ranch gets a delivery of hogs on Thurs. With others saying that there's no hogs in the area. I wonder if the south can find enough hogs to meet the current demand. I always read people saying. I know a farmer who would be glad to have you come shoot some hogs.. Blah, blah. Those farmers seem few and far between.

    Very far and few between from what I've seen.

    for what its worth my friends dad went to FL for his first pig shoot. I called him today. The plce he went is no longer doing hog shoots as the family sold the property to a developer. He said he just went on line and found this place and liked what he seen on the website. He basically stayed in thier very nice hunting cabin with a real bed and then in the morning and early evening sat on the deck and shot the pigs as they crossed the field.... later he went to a place in texas long range ranch or some shit where they took 600-1200 yard shots on pigs with 338 lapua, 50 BMG and a 416 ?
    this is where he is going next.

    They have a great reputation. I spoke to someone who used them in '16 and they said it was an amazing time. Good guys, good lodging, excellent grub. Good luck.
    did they mention if they have a bag limit? do they help package the meat?

    Where did you go?
    Was it a big pack of hogs non stop that you killed off because they are destroying the local farms? Or was it a point and click over a feeder?
    I would like to try to get some buddies together for a feral hog trip but I would prefer to take out a bunch of hogs on some private farm instead of shooting a big pig over a grain feeder and calling it a day.
    Seems like having some fun hunting and helping to get rid of the problem for farms at the same time would be great.
    Any suggestions?
    Florida has some good spots so does Georgia and Bama, I've hunted in all 3. Good to make a long weekend out of it, barbecue at the end unless you are prepared to ship the meat home

    If your hog hunting(its not really hunting). Night time is the best..you get those 4x4 golf carts, night vision, and just spread some sour corn in the trails. Its a massacre. You can drive up, walk the last 50ft and you can get about 30ft away from them before you let them have it.
    be careful those things can hurt/kill you. Shoot the females first, the babys wont run as far... i always make sure to kill the little ones, they wont make it on their own. Also the goal is extermination.
    The little ones are better eating aswell.


    There really is an infestation, they do alot of damage.I wish i had my beltfed m16 when i would do this.
    we'd trap them in kidney shaped traps and mass grave them....you'd be shocked how quickly they turn on eachother and eat one another

    The guy i went with died rather tragically. Fishing and hunting with him was great.
    if your going to travel all the way to Florida or Texas id look up that helicopter trip.
    Im pretty sure i could use me FA stuff, so i doubt the trip would cost more than the ammo id go through.



    It was great with one of us wearing the NV headset and the otherguy with the rifle with NV..liking shooting fish in a barrel...

    His brother died when they were kids...climbing over a small fence used the rifle like a walking stick and the trigger snagged..blew his face off right infront of him.. probibly should do that with one in the pipe.
