Cory, You should try Pearl River Wildlife Management Area, it is overrun with Hogs. Pass A Loutre and Atchafalaya Delta WMAs also have a large population of Hogs also, they even have a few on the Biloxi WMA. Have not seen any on Salvador yet but they have harvested a few on the Jean Lafitte National Park so eventually they will make it to Salvador.

Isu, If you have a boat I would run up peach lake past wastehouse bayou where the beautiful oak ridges used to be before Katrina. I went duck hunting back there and saw a hog on every trip and the tracks and trails were everywhere. Still a few oaks left but still very thick, lots of Chinese tallow trees in the swamp now I guess that was another side effect of that horrible storm.

The place is flooded now.I have a boat but dont hunt out of it maybe next year, gotta get lights and all.the hog numbers have dropped for me atleast over the last 3 years.I'll have to learn that area by boat.I have heard of it and know about how to get there but not a fan of running boat in dark.I need a few more hogs to get through the year.my season hasn't been great.I was able to get 2 deer this year 1 in honey island and 1 in shurburne.didn't keep count on pigs but only like 12 since sept 1st which in my opinion is not good.thanks for the tips.I appreciate that help.because they don't seem to have many off hwy 11 part of that wma

well I jus came back from pearl river wma at honey island this was the last weekend on the wma to hunt hogs. I was there Saturday and Sunday an seen plenty of tracks but only seen three hogs. one I spooked and the other two was on the other side of the stream too far away for a crossbow shot. Where's all the hogs I heard about fellas lol. I hunted the area north of honey island all the way to 59 what other areas on pearl river wma got good hogs?

Spring squirrel opened today in pearl river wma and a few others saw 1 hog no shot.talked to 5 other hunters they didn't see anything.back in deer season I went to shurburne 2 different times was total of 6 days. never saw 1 hog.only heard of 4 coming out there on 1 day of mandatory deer check. I did get a small doe there. Pearl river is hard hunting.if you go out watch for snakes. If you hunt spring squirrel make sure you read the wma section because some genius decided to only give wma a few days while private land can hunt longer.good luck.
