If you’ve never been hog hunting before, good! We’re glad you’re here, and we’re glad you’re considering a hunt on our reserve! Many novice hunters have visited us for a hunt and sought our counsel on the best place to aim for the perfect drop of a hog. We thought we’d set some space aside on our blog to share some of the advice we regularly give to our visitors… read ahead, but don’t be afraid to talk with us if you have any doubts or questions when you arrive for your hunt!
If you make a regular habit of keeping up with this blog, you already know that there are an estimated 600,000 to 1.5 million wild hogs in the state of Oklahoma. You also know that there is no hog season and that they are huntable all year ‘round. What’s more, you know that what we do is facilitate fun and stellar hunting experiences for all types of folks at any age. But what is it that makes us special and worth trusting with your business, and moreover, with your hunt?
Here’s something you don’t hear about every day…. Hog Fever!
If you’re an avid hunter, or you belong to any avid hunting communities, you may have heard of its distant cousin, Buck Fever. It’s a gripping sensation that’s sweeping the hunting nation.
Oftentimes couples and families making a trip to Hog Wild for a hunt come with the full package -- a very eager hunter, and a spouse or loved one who is more eager to see a bit of what the surprisingly metropolitan Oklahoma City has to offer tourists or non-locals. In fact, many people from out of town are surprised to learn about how hip OKC actually is!
We often talk about how great hog hunting is, here. Of course we would! There are a lot of (we think) common sense reasons for this to be the case. Hunting is a marvelous and ancient sport that can put you in touch with something baser about yourself -- moreover, it’s a great builder of camaraderie between friends, family members and those in relationships.
It’s clear that at Hog Wild, we LOVE hog hunts -- we recognize that we have a little bias when it comes to talking about the best kind of hunting out there, but we firmly believe that hog hunting is some of the best hunting that those who are just starting out as hobbyists can do.
