We know this is a strange and anxious time for many of us out there -- we ourselves are hunkered down here at HogWild and waiting for the storm of this pandemic to pass. Not only do we want to wish you and yours the very best in terms of health and wellness during this crisis, we want to give you some fast facts about hog hunting in Oklahoma and tell you why it may be a beneficial and personally rewarding activity that also respects social distancing!
Last year, we made a blog post about the best and hottest gear to carry with you in the field. Since it has been a while, and people have been at home for the most part, we are rolling that back out again for three of the best pieces of tactical and comfort gear to help hunters have successful and fun hunts in 2020!
Traditionally speaking, hog hunting (and hunting and general) has for some reason been associated with masculinity and ‘male-activity’ -- but times have changed! Even though hunting has always been a friendly sport to women, the focus of the industry hasn’t always demonstrated that. Today, we’d like to share some facts about how women have become a larger part of the hog hunting (and general hunting) industry in recent years. As you know, we consider hog hunting at HogWild to be an outing that is enriching for the entire family!

In a previous blog entry, we’ve talked about some of the many amazing things that you or your spouse can do in nearby Oklahoma City. OKC itself is a very family-friendly place to visit -- the food scene is incredible, and there is so much to see and do in terms of art, music and scenic roads to travel by. However, for this entry, we wanted to specifically address some of the amazing landmarks that you can see if you are not an Oklahoma Native… from a harrowing but beautiful national memorial to a very unique skyscraper designed by a renowned architect, Oklahoma has a lot to offer you.
If you’ve been a regular reader of our blog, you’ll know that we’ve addressed the myriad of ways in which feral hog populations can have a negative impact on local agriculture and the yield for our locavores and dedicated farmers.
