Nice kill. I love how close you can get to em. So blind, so fun.


I think those are fenced in pigs. Not real life wild hogs.

While it can be done it's not easy to get that close to wild hogs. Nor are they that easy going if you try to rope one are grab hold of it.

Several occasions ive gotten 15 yards from em before I shot em. It is situational but I find it pretty easy in the thick of the South to get danger close.

Yes I'm in the deep south myself.

Like I stated it can be done, just not as easily as Dan did in the vid.

Still was a cool vid and fun to watch Dan do his thing.

I believe there’s curtain conditions that allow a hunter to slip in right on top of hogs. But they don’t come around often. Hogs are a crafty sucker. Way less curiosity than deer. They suspect danger and they are gone without stopping 30 yards later to look around. But they have a heck of an appetite. Hogs also don’t sweat, when the dog days of 100 degree summer kicks in it really limits where they can set up shop.

I believe a big boar (although rare) is prob his own worst enemy. He knows he has no predators and will often put himself in harms way just to show who runs the show around here.

Has become popular around here for some reason for folks to trap boars, cut their ears off, and let em loose. Suspect deer hunters tired of hounds ruining a hunt. Can only imagine what happens when a dog catches up to him and has nothing to grab on to. Bet it ain’t pretty.

Any of you guys ever run with Great Danes to go after boars? If not, what dogs do you use?



For catch dogs most use pit bulls, or american bullies. I cant stand a catch dog though...

Now for bay dogs, our best dogs were some we bred. It's hard to find a breed thatll do it all, the best we had was 1/4 laika, 1/4 bluetick, and 1/2 catahoula. He could wind a hog at a ridiculous distance and he'd be there bayed no matter how long it took ya to get there.

A lot of the "hog" hunters here are bad about castrating boars and turning back loose so they'll have a barr hog with big teeth in a couple years. On sows they'll cut ears off so another hog dogger can't catch um, easily anyways, so they can continue populating and giving them hogs to hunt. Problems with that is most of these guys are in private leases and hog hunt as a hobby, which theres nothing wrong with, but they have no regard for private land owners. Those hogs they turn loose will still impact their environment and cause destruction. Can't hog hunt on public here because of those people turning hogs loose and transporting them to new areas in the past so they'd have new hunting areas. And it's a good bit of the reason why AR is losing the battle on hogs and the population is exploding
