I'VE HUNTED PEARL RIVER SINCE THE 70'S. OPENING WEEKENDS YOU COULD NOT WALK DOWN A TRAIL 200 YARDS AND NOT SEE A GUT PILE FROM HOGS THAT WERE BEING TAKEN BY HUNTERS. I DON'T HAVE ACCTUAL NUMBERS BUT IT WAS VERY IMPRESSIVE.I WOULD SEE HERDS OF 15 HOGS OR MORE ON SOME OF THE HUNTS. YOU COULD EASILY GET ENOUGH HOGS FOR YOURSELF AND GIVE SOME TO FRIENDS AND NEIBHORS. NEVER HEARD ANY FUSS BEING.... Read More

Louisiana is what I've come to think of as my second home, so much so I ended up marrying one of your lovely ladies. However in my many visits to the state I've never been able to take part in a hog hunt and that's the next thing on my to-do list for the state. If anyone can help me with any information pertaining to locating land owners or other hunters it would be greatly appreciated..... Read More
I'll leave this here, hopefully someone will read this and have enough impact to change regulations on WMA's for hog hunting. Well the rules are that if hog hunting on a WMA, you must hunt with a seasonal firearm, which outside of deer season is either a shotgun with BB shot or a .22LR. Well I decided to go for the past few week and it wasn't until yesterday until I was able to sneak up.... Read More

I shot this boar on Saturday evening on a private lease in St. Bernard. I was hunting together with my brother-in-law and we attempted to take a double on the two hogs that came out.
Technically, I guess it only counts for a half kill. The hogs were only a few feet apart and staggered a little. We did a count down and both went for head shots. Unfortunately he missed his, but also hit.... Read More
