Calif pig hunt


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


Hi,
I am from Auburn, Wa. My son and I had 2 guided pig hunts in Calif and have zero pig to show for and we want to do it again.
Any one know a reliable good pig guide in Northern Calif that charges reasonable rates ? We donot mind unguided hunt too in a good Ranch.
Thanks, a lot,
Mike

Hi Mike, and although I have nothing really positive to tell you, I'd still like to welcome you to the site. I do not hunt hogs out west where you do, but have enjoyed some really good hog hunts in the eastern U.S. I'll only tell you that as a H U G E deer hunter here, I'll choose free ranging hogs over deer now....

I hope you get a lead on a great place and get you some BIG hogs. If that doesn't work out, I'd be happy to share what little I know.

Best of luck to you!!!

I would suggest making a little longer trip, and hunt in a state that doesnt classify them as big game animals. Really california is running a huge scam, that is hurting the natural resources of the state.

I've got a buddy who absolutely slays those hogs in California. He hunts on a huge ranch south of Bakersfield called Tejon Ranch. I understand it costs about $400 to get a pass to hunt on this place. The only other place I know of is a military base called Fort Hunter Liggett which is off the Hwy 101 north of Paso Robles. I understand the cost of Hunter Liggett is really cheap but it's on a 1st come- 1st serve basis and hunting privelges are monitored very closely. Check out this web-site for more information.

I've hunted Tejon and Ft Hunter Liggett. Both take a lot of work and you will need to build some knowledge of the areas. I would recommend a good guide in central California. The state DFG will give you a list.

Save your pennies

Save your pennies and buy a flight down to Texas. I know of a number of reputable ranches, but one in particular, the Lazy R, near El Paso, offers a very good deal, excellent accomodation and food. Lots of pigs, coyotes , bobcats, javelina. There are some operations in Northern California but I do not know how reputable they are. I do know that their prices were higher than the Lazy R, Texas. Mr Moderator Sir!! I have no commercial interest whatsoever in this ranch. I have hunted there on one occasion and would return again if airfares from the UK eased a bit.

Back in the mid 80's I did a lot of pig hunting after meeting a guy who had access to private ranches. This one was killed on a ranch near Hollister. The gun is a Ruger Blackhawk .45 Colt:

This is really good advice. I hunt at Fort Hunter Liggett and it's an excellent area. Another area to check out would be near Pozo, I camp there a lot and hear them rooting around all the time. I'm planning to Turkey/squirrel/boar hunt out near Pozo this year, next year I'll go back to Fort Hunter Liggett some.

The central coast offers some good hunting in San Luis Obispo and Monterey county. Pozo is roughly 40 miles away from SLO town and Hunter Liggett is around 70-80 miles. If you ever make it out this way hit me up, I can show you some decent spots.

I used to guide hog hunts in Parkfield CA, I just talked with Roger Miller (Miller Bros. Ranch),.I asked him about hog numbers on his ranch, he told me he has an estimated 200 hogs on the ranch right now. He said they are into his barley fields and are the best eating after they have been feeding on grain for a month.He has a nice cabin and a fine place to hunt.

Jeff, I'm not familiar with Parkfield. Where is it from San Jose?
