Fall marks the beginning of a new hunting season and the opportunity for spot and stalk hunting. If you're unfamiliar with this technique, it means to literally "spot" your prey before it sees you and "stalk" it until you can get a close enough shot.
Fall is a special time of year for many hunters. While our facilities are open year-round, there's something unique about this season when the weather cools and leaves fall that really seem to properly welcome the arrival of "hunting season."
If you've ever seen the damage a group of hogs can inflict on farmland in one night, you know how much of a nuisance hogs can be. In some areas ecological balances have been devastated from the presence of wild boar.
When it comes to successfully hunting hogs, a hunter needs to be familiar with the signs and habits of wild hogs. There are a few common things you can look for.
Hog tracks are the most looked for sign, especially in low line areas where someone can differentiate between a hog track and a deer track.
We're coming up on the holiday season and we wanted to do something fun this year for our readers by putting our Hog Wild hunter spin on a Christmas carol classic: 12 days of Christmas. Rather than rehash the whole song we thought we'd put our own version of the 12 days down, starting with #12.
