If you’ve never hunted wild hogs before, you may have some questions about where to aim your shot, especially if you’ve never been hunting before. Even hunters with prior experience hunting deer or similar animals often try to aim for the same areas they would on those animals, not realize how different wild hogs are built.
After bringing down a wild pig during a morning hunt, many of our visitors decide to stick around until dusk to go hunting again. Knowing how exciting hog hunting can be, we knew early on that we wanted to give our visitors a comfortable place to hang out between hunts.
Hog hunting is a lot of fun and we love seeing our hunters have a good time on the reserve. We want to make sure we do everything we can to make hunting convenient and stress-free for the folks who come out.
Not every shot is going to be perfect and because wild hogs are so tough, even great shots may not bring them down immediately. Because of that we use a standard procedure for recovering wild hogs that keeps our hunters safe and helps ensure they get to take their trophy home with them.
No hunt is a good hunt if someone gets hurt. We take safety very seriously at Hog Wild and make sure none of our hunters start a hunt without being well informed about how to stay safe. In fact, one of the first things we do when hunters arrive is walk them through our five major safety rules.
Most people don’t think of summer as a good season for hunting. Turns out, it’s actually a great time to hunt wild hogs. As the days warm up, our tactics do change a little from what we do in cooler months, but for those who prefer being warm to being cold, summer is sometimes the perfect time to hunt.
