    I want to hunt hogs!!!! Can you help?

    Hello, I'm new to this forum. I just moved to Little Rock, AR from Sitka, Alaska and I would love to go wild hog hunting. It's one my dreams to be able to go hog hunting while I'm living here. I'm looking for some farm/land owners who might be having problems with hogs messing up their crop or their property. I would like to come help you take some hogs out. I've never hunted hogs before but I'm hunted a lot in Alaska. I know there are ranches/guide services that I can go pay lots of money and shoot a hog at but I can't afford to do that and I don't want to hunt a "wild hog" that they have in a fenced in ranch. If you can make my dream come true, please give me a shout.

    Thank you,

    T.

    I think a lot of people are looking for the same thing you are. I'm not sure why more ranches/farms don't allow hunters to come on their property. Maybe the government licenses for hunt clubs are too strict and costly? I'm trying to set up a hunt club in California and so far it seems like a lot of paperwork.

    Most ranches/farms don't allow it because they're more worried about the liability of Joe Blow off the street running around on their property shooting guns than they are of the hogs tearing stuff up. Everybody, and I mean everybody, wants to come down here and "help out" with the hog problem. The thing is, a weekend hunter showing up and killing a hog or two isn't going to make any difference and for the land owner it's more trouble than it's worth.

    I'm not saying that it applies to anyone here but there are some idiots out there and there's just no way for the land owner to know if some random stranger asking to hunt their property is responsible or an idiot. Not to mention, lots of them are running cattle and I've heard of more than one person that mistook a calf for a hog and shot it.

    You're going to have a rough time finding someone to let you loose on their land as a novice hog hunter. Down south we're a lot more property rights oriented and most people just don't like people that aren't friends and family out on their place, especially with a gun.

    I wish I could give you a more positive outlook but that's just the way it is. You might post something on Craigslist about looking for some hunting partners and explain your story and maybe someone will take you along that needs some help. Once you get more experienced you can post stuff up at the feed stores and places like that for hog removal to see if you can get some farmers or ranchers to let you out on their place.

    pony is right.some hunters have no business being anywhere near a gun.a few years back we lost a lease due to a idiot with a gun. he shot one of the man ats cows and said he thought it was a deer.these same type people are also dangerous to other hunters as well as themselves.while hunting outsid ebrady in a wooden tower stand hunters on the next property were shooting at targets.their dshots were hitting my tower blindthese are the type people landowners fear and this makes them no want to allow hunters

    I have let 3 folks hunt my lands unsupervised that I had not hunted with previously. One left garbage. The second wanted to bring his boy out for his first deer and so he set up a couple small cobbled together stands, cut some trees without asking including cutting down a tree I didn't want cut down, and then while scouting my place, decided he wanted to hunt predators for which he didn't have permission. After it was said and down, he abandoned his garbage stands. The third guy was no problem. He dove hunted, took his spent shells, etc. All three were experienced hunters, proclaimed to take care of my place, and agreed to abide by my rules. I even knew all three previously. Given my poor experience with "experienced" hunters that I knew, then there is no way I would let strangers hunt unsupervised. If they can't follow my simple rules, then I can't count on them to be safe either...which also involves some simple rules.
