Sherburne Hog hunting

Thinking about doing some hog hunting soon at Sherburne. Just wondering if anyone know of any good spots that have a good amount of hogs or signs that hogs are there. Recently went deer hunting there and seen neither deer nor hogs, so just trying to get some insight on where they might be?

SHERBURNE
It's a big place. Keep looking. You will dial it in. I realize it's a long way from Kenner, but if you go scout you will start to see some sign. Set up your climber and wait.

I was wondering the exact same thing. I usually hunt on private land in North LA but looking for something a little closer to BR. I will be scouting that area soon. Really done know where to start.

There were plenty of signs of both deer and hogs when I went scout for the week I hunted, its just they didn't want to move much, I was thinking about trying the Attakapas WMA, I heard they use to have a big problem with hogs, but haven't heard anything since a couple years ago.

movement
They're moving now. I don't hunt Sherburne, but my lease is right next to it, and the deer are moving now. It's really hard to say 'go here' or 'go there' on Sherburne. Just like my deer lease is to a new member, you gotta go get in the woods and look. You gotta go to the woods to hunt. I sit and don't see anything but squirrels a lot more often than I see or shoot deer or hogs. Hogs aren't stupid either. I think they are smarter than deer.

there's a trail by the iberville parish line sign, along side levee, rough trail, but plenty hogs and deer, just like anything else, one must do scouting to find good places. another good place is behind check in station, both sides of trail close to end of road near private property. hogs use to be thick on sherburne last year , they look like there thinning out a bit, must be moving , i assume south, maybe attapkas.

Re: Sherburne Hog hunting
If you want pigs I would seriously recommend trying thistlethwaite I along went with my family and as long as you find an active spot and pack some sandwiches (all day hunt) you should get one i went to a spot down rice field and once my brother texted saying we were leaving for lunch i said i wanted to stay all day and sure enough 2 hours later i hear leaves snorting and acorns cracking , killed a 225 pound sow and weekend before that my dad killed a 70 pound sow and the day previous to that my brother killed a 150 pound boar which was 'clipped' asap and had no taint. Good acorn fed pigs for sure. Ps i weigh 215 and and 6'2' opposed to the hog for size comparison
