Anyone have any luck with hogs there? Its the only WMA I realistically have access too. I've seen some rubs, rooting and wallows in the past couple of weeks. Any suggestions/tips? New to hog hunting. Thanks!
Well with deer season ending its time for some fast paced action. Me and my wife took the dogs out this weekend and stayed in the hogs. Ended up catching a sow, a gilt, and a real nice Barr hog we cut last year. Looking forward to this weekend. I always liked pork better than beef anyways!
Just putting this out there i know about of folks have bad trouble with the hog population we are a wild hog removal service just the areas we hunt as of now are closed for deer season.... we do hunt for major land corporations and we keep them very pleased we do carry a libility insurance..... alll dogs will not mess with cattle nor run deer out of the area... I can't promise to get all hogs....
Hi, I'm new here, and new to hunting. I've hunted before, but always with my father. He moved away, and now I need the meat. I'd like to go after hogs, but I feel like paying to shoot a penned animal defeats the purpose of providing for myself. Does anybody have any suggestions for public places to hunt? I'm coming from calcasieu parish. I'm not too familiar with the wildlife maps. I know I....
Got on my stand early, and right away heard groups of pigs behind and in front of me. Pretty much heard them all morning until I got off the stand. When I made it back to the buggy, a group walked out at 40 yards. I knew a put some old broadheads on for something!!
Imagine my surprise when 10 hogs suddenly showed up in my yard. Called wlf, they sent the beaver man(hog man) out to trap them for blood and swab tests for disease. He said the feds had given la.? $10 million to trap all the wild hogs, and was trying to legalize a very deadly poison. Even tho it might kill bears or other wildlife, as long as the rate is less than 20% that will be acceptable.
LWDF HELICOPTER HOG HUNT WAS A FIRST. SO, THAT DID NOT HAVE A GREAT IMPACT ON HOG NUMBERS. OFCOURCE I DONT AGREE WITH WHAT LDWF DID.
AS FOR THE FEDERAL WILDLIFE REFUGE'S NOT ALLOWING DOGS, IT IS NOT CORRECT. BOGUE CHITTO STARTED ALLOWING DOGS IN 1997. AND IT IS STILL GOING ON. CHECK THEIR PERMIT PAMPHLET.
I have been monitoring this forum waiting for the explosion but it has not happened yet. I guess nothing will be said or done on the subject until maybe September right before hunting season when the Louisiana hog hunters pull their head out of the sand or wherever they have their head and discover all that is being instatuted to their favorite game animal. The federal government has....

I'm looking for some advice on hog hunting in Pearl River WMA, I've made two trips up there already and after spending the entire day there I left empty handed. Aside from the hogs on the interstate I didn't see a single hog. We saw where all the dirt was dug up and found a bunch of evidence of the hogs being there deep in the woods but I didn't see any even after ataying in the area a....
My friend has been helping us rid our farm in Crowley of hogs and is doing a good job. Saturday, his crew caught this large boar right behind my house. He had been hunting this one for a while but the big boar had given him the slip a few times by running. He was a smart one and it took a little creative planning to get him. Thanks to SLAHoggers for getting this big boy out of the woods.
This nice boar came up in my dads back yard trying to get in the pen with two sows he has for meat hogs. I brought my bulldog over there yesterday evening and sucked him up. He was a handful for me and my old dad( pretty much by myself)but I caught and cut him. My neighbor put him in a stock trailer for sausage later on.

Been having hogs tearing up our camp yard... baited my traps for 3 days and then set them... Caught the mom (AKA Oreo) and 5 young boars (40 lbs. each)... My other trap had a 60 lb. boar... It was a pretty good day with the trap!!!
Saturday morning we had Bradley Barber and his buddies Brother David, Hunter @ Shay with their dogs. Hunted our lease and one other. Their dogs run hard. Finally ended up with two boars. One weighing around two hundred pounds and another about half that size. First time on pig hunt with dogs that got some pigs. Lots of fun, plus two pigs off our lease.
