Hog hunting you say? GOOD MAN! I've been hunting those critters for the past decade or so. Wish I knew about it a decade before that!

It's fun, fast, and furious if you hunt over hound. Spot and stalk those buggars and you'll think whitetail are second to the hogs. The ol' porker has an accute sense of smell and will stop on a dime if it picks up your scent. Eye sight is debatable, but don't think they're blind.

If you're looking to bowhunt hogs, email me. I organize the largest hog hunt in the U.S. each spring in TN. Actually I had to move the dates up from the normal first week of March which is a great time to hunt them to early February this year.

Actually, Ralph and Vicki donated a PILE of goodies for our hunt last March as it marked our 10th anniversary hunt.

Once you hunt them, you could be hooked! I was, and I still can't shake that pork-monkey from my back!

I'll be headed to southern OK in about three weeks for my second attempt at them. I severely underestimated those critters on my first trip and came home empty handed. I'm hopin' to make up for that this time around!

Is there any place in the midwest that has a good population of hogs on public land? Where in TN do you go?

pbg40g - Roadrunner email client choked the other day and finally puked up 80 or so emails and yours was in there. Sorry for the delay in replying.

Check your email. The TWRA website has all the information. TN has some restrictions if you're hunting WMA's and refuges. Hounds aren't permitted in those areas. The Big South Fork is an area I've hunted several times as well as some private land between Clarkville and Clarkrange. I do hunt at the Clarkrange Hunting Lodge when I organize my spring hunt which usually pulls in 20-30 bowhunters each hunt.

There was one outfitter, The State House, who ran fair chase hunts out of the East Fork Stable area, Jeff Coggins, but died in 2004. I'm unsure if his partners are still guiding clients in that area which was, if I remember correctly about 10,000 acres. You can run a search to see if they're still in operation.

One of his partners, Phil Floyd does frequent Tradgang.com and you may possibly contact Phil for information regarding the operation or general information about the area.

I've found that sometimes it is a bit easier to contact some of the locals for specific info regarding location of some of the areas to hunt as many are broken up like the Wayne National Forest in Ohio.

I wish I could be of more help for you.
