Wild Boar hunting storys folk?

Discussion in 'Dog Discussion' started by Soze the killer, Sep 26, 2019.

  1. Given that im in a area witch is limited to its Wild Boar,ide like to ask of peoples experiences of hunting this formidible beast.

    Any types of Boar,it dose not matter.im asking are American cousins mostly here.as i belive many states of the USA are harrbord with various types of Wild Boar.

    i no nothing of Wild Boar.
    i no nothing on how to hunt it..
    I have nothing in particular,but a million things to ask surrounding this subject,,and more even surrounding the dogs used to hunt them.
    its to complex i guess to ask just one question...or a number of questions.
    so thats why i named the thread what i did........

    I think this will start up some great stuff,Im hopeing the alerts start rolling in.
    Im thinking this may be a good place to lean about this subject,and i should of asked more sooner.
    hope some good folk reply.
    all the best.

    I always wished we had boar here in NWPA so i could use my mutts to hunt but then again I love whitetail deer hunting and they hurt the deer population so the other part of me is kinda glad they arent here.

    We have a few up here. Government has a bounty on them $50 bucks for a set of ears. There just hogs that got under the fence and started breeding like rats. I dont think they see to well but I could be wrong but they are smart.

    Some history preserved in taxidermy:) This is the dog that caught the hog that Norman Kemmer was hunting when he died from a heart attack.. Hog killed the dog also.. Total respect to the Dog, Hog and the late, great Norman Kemmer.

  5. Nice..i never tasted whitetail.looks a bit like Roe.
    im imagining they got bush craft like a Roe to?.
    can you stalk one with a mutt?
    or is that not a loud?

    Just asking,theres normally strange laws surronding hunting deer in most countrys lol.
    Do they go a big size whitetail?
    I had a Roe shoulder the other day that weighd in at around 5 kg-but when cooked we were left with about 1 kg of meat...

    it was tasty tho.
    put dryed juniper berrys on it,went out picked fresh elder berrys and black berrys.put them on it and laid it on onion and garlic,to roast.
    house smelled amazing man.

  10. @ Box Bulldog i belive pigs (even demestocated pigs )to be some sort of inteligent...i dont think cows are that stupid either after a recent incident.

    Pigs can also digest some serious shit.

    Ive never tasted Wild Boar.
    50 dollers is small pay when i look at that picture tho.

    I think our wild pigs up here in Alberta Canada are a mix of the Russian wild boars and domestic farm pigs that have got out. If you fire a round off at them they wont come back to that area for a long time. We have a lot of deer white tail and mule deer. You can not have a dog with you while hunting big game except for cougars. Pigs are not considered game and you can hunt them any time anyway you like. Both side of my family are beef farmers (Simmental's +Hereford's+Angus)
    and cattle are as dumb as a stump in my opinion. Bamaman hunts pigs with dogs I would like to hear what he has to say on the topic. Good topic Soze.

    The hog dog rodeos were as much fun as anything I have done in the dogs. I thoroughly enjoyed myself each and every time.

    I was invited to a hunt once and I jumped at the chance. I have stated it before but I am cheap. I was told I could get a room the night before but I chose to get up at 2AM and drive just about 4 hours to the mountains of NC. I met them at a local diner and off we went.

    We went down this dirt road and maybe five minutes the dogs in the box were going ape shit. They dropped the tail gate and within a few minutes they had bayed a hog. They turned out this pit-AB cross and he caught that thing in a split second. He was relatively small 80-90lbs. They walked him back to a hog trailer.

    We drove a few more minutes and the dogs cut loose again. This time they caught within a hundred yards from the road. The stuck this one with a knife and we carried him back to the truck.

    The locals looked at each other and said, "Good day, see ya'll next Saturday".

    The hunt was over in an hour tops. I drove 4 hours. Hunted for maybe 50 minutes and then drove home.

    The 50 minutes was intense and awesome. The 8 hours in the truck was boring as hell.

    It's very good meat. Lean. I prefer it over beef. Size wise, I get anywhere from 90 to 140 lbs of meat off one so they aren't huge but they big enough they'll fuck you up especially a testosterone frenzied buck in full rut.

    I am not a trophy hunter so I try to get a couple big doe's. Bucks in the rut have a smell to them. It is a very dry lean meat. Taste depends on what they are eating. I usually shoot deer from very long range (300 win mag or 6.5x55)that are feeding on grain in the fields (last year got one at 720 yard reading on the range finder) I think they are better eating than bush deer. For bush deer I use a .45 colt lever gun with open sights. I usually just cut out the best cuts of meat and grind the rest into sausage. My sausage recipe for those interested is simple and good. Grind all meat/add salt/ fresh ground pepper corns/ fresh pealed garlic/ marjoram spice/ mix well (can add ground pork if you don't want it to dry) . Make a little paddy fry it taste it and add more if it is lacking something. Then use clean intestine case ( I usually use pork) fill mixed intestine with your ground meat and your done. I use a old hand grinder makes me feel like a man.

    I rifle and archery, also never trophy hunt. I don't eat antlers so as long as it has 7 points which is the law to legally shoot a buck here, I'll shoot it. I have never shot one from more than 30 yards from me. In gun or archery. Lol I'm 156lbs. Those are some nice long skillful shots but to me that's just another 7 football fields I got to drag that sumbitch. I aint working harder than I have too. I burn alot of energy when I hunt. I don't still hunt I stalk. I hunt in very thick woods that are swampy. Usually I will find

    1. A corn field
    2. A water source both within a quarter mile of where I'm hunting. In a perfect world, #3. I find where they bed down then I'll linger in between where they bed and where they eat. Wack em going to or from either area.
    Once I find 2 out of 3 of those things, I'll start following the most recent sets of tracks I can find, by the prints I can tell what is a large buck that will almost always also be with prints of the doe or does he is following. I never shoot does simply because I always forget to mail in my doe permits so I can't legally hunt them most years. But yes, they definitely taste better. Age of the deer is also a big factor. Anyway, I always keep in mind that the deeper I go the further I have to drag. My original point though before I distracted myself is, you would never get a 150 yard shot let alone 7+ in any woods I've ever hunted here. Unless your hunting fields and plateaus.

    In the gun season here, the first shot rang on the first day of the season and the dominate older bucks go predominantly nocturnal and head deep into hard places for humans to access. Like dense, swampy thickets. This is where I like to creep around. Most here only shoot a deer in a field because it was running across it running from someone who has already taken a shot at it. I don't shoot moving deer and I don't want to track a wounded animal, also makes for a futher drag. So I'll get very close. Extremely rare you'll find a decent buck here in a field during light hours after opening day. Just does and young spikes that don't know any better yet.

    I'm stoked now that I'm thinking about hunting. Archery starts in like 3 weeks here.

    I only eat the steak meat, backstraps and the rest is jerky or dog food. I shoot a 30.06 with 155 grain hollow points. At 30 yards it's dropping where it stands pretty much where ever I hit it. Lol. I take lung shots typically if broadside and center mass if it's facing me. Can't run if you can't breath. In archery I go for the heart.
