good place to hunt hogs?

anywhere within a days drive of ole miss? i would like to give it a go. but i don't want one of those release hunts or one where you ride around in an atv. i like the old fashioned way of hunting, walking and stalking.

any ideas, tips from those that have gone before me?

I would think there is many good places to hunt hog in Miss! and yah! stalking hogs is way to much fun. just the idea these things can rip you a new bung hole is my idea of hunting. Deer just run! Away! Good luck!

I saw about a dozen yesterday in a wheat field off the highway.

But it wasn't my wheatfield.

yea we have some around here where i live, but locals sat they are not big or numerous. down south we have lots of guided hunts but they seem more for people who don't really want to hunt if you get my meaning.

Jeff Troop are you ok with a guided hunt? If so look at Louisiana Outdoors website there are alot of advertisements. I went on one just south of Baton Rouge with a bunch of friends a long time ago and had a bunch of fun. It wasnt a "release" type situation, just a guided hunt. If you are just looking for an old fashioned still hunt on public land Honey Island has plenty of hogs. Very close to Mississippi on I 10. Pretty much any public land on the Mississippi River will have hogs. In Mississippi dont you have a game reserve near Woolmarket with plenty of hogs?

a guided hunt that is a real hunt would be fine. i honestly have never gutted a hog so i assume most guided hunts could help with that. if the hog was ugly enough i might get it mounted as well. i'll check out the places that have been mentioned.

I know a retired guy that lives in a house that was given to him in Brazos Bend State park. His job is to kill hogs. The last time I talked to him he said he killed 467 hogs in 8 months. He can't shoot the hogs he has to club them (can't discharge a gun in the park). He said if the park let him trap all year round he could trap 600 hogs a year. Yah hogs are a problem around here! Anyone in the Houston area that want's free hog go to Brazos bend and talk to the guy that traps hogs. He will give you hogs for free! They will be dead! He can't throw then in the swamp for the gators. Then there will be to many gators looking for people who will give them hogs. Not a good combination! It's bad enough that the gators come out of the water to try to eat your dog!

I never tried to look but I bet there are good places to hunt hog around the park!
