Looking for wild boar hunting areas


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Looking to hunt wild boars in the Monterey area. Made a deal with my wife, she gets to go on vacation to the ocean and I get to go pig hunting!!! My years of hunting have all been further north just south of Redding California. I do ok from time to time...but I put heavy dues in with many miles of scouting and walking. I studied the California Fish and Game web sight and found statistics showing that monterey had the highest logged kills in the state. I have ordered all the maps of BLM/public lands and see that there is alot of ground to cover. Any info or help would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

AJ

I'm looking to hunt in the last week of August (I live in Modesto) and I appreciate the information about Monterey. I'm more inclined to pay a guide, they know where the pigs are and have access. Are you a handgun hunter? I want to try it with my .44 mag (if the guide has a decent backup long gun). I reload my own and shoot a 336 gr. WLN cast bullet from #2 alloy dropped into water (BHN around 15).

Actually all my past experience has been in rather open country with long shots using my 300 short mag with handloaded 180gr. Nosler AccuBonds. I use my .44 Mag for back-up, but wouldn't be against using the .44 Mag as the primary weapon if that was the best choice for the terrain in Montery. I hunt pigs year around, but still don't feel I have enough info about Montery to go there.

So are you getting a guide? If so, what are the rates or other details about his style of hunting? Maybe we can do a group hunt and save some $$$. I think my 300 short mag would be a great long range back-up gun. I have checked into guides before, but all the ones I talked to say they have a feeding area where the pigs gather and that is where they shoot them. I don't think I like that idea, kinda takes the excitment out for me. I like the tracking, and actually hunting of the pigs in areas that wild pigs are free to roam.

I live in Sacramento just north of Modesto.
