Ok....so, give me some intel....where can a yankee go to kill a dang pig. I don't seem to have pig luck. Texas is not out of the question, but it is nearly as far as the moon for me. Any suggestions out there ? Especially (but not exclusively) non baiting, spot and stalk type hunting.

Australia or Hawaii are my first choices....

I would invite you AGAIN to my place but you threw that non-baiting comment in there. Just ain't lived till you hear that squeel!

Tim... thank you again, for the invite.  Maybe some time I will be able to take you up on that.  Pretty certain it is an awesome venue where you hunt.     For the record, I have nothing against baiting, if that is the local practice.  I just grew up without it and it just feels better if I do it all myself.  Same for guided hunts.     

Of course, like bears up here in WI... do it that way and you'd better settle for Campbell's soup at the end of most days. 

Picky.... I know.

if you hunt South Texas, say around Freer, where you can't see over the brush even on horseback, one kinda rethinks the baiting issue. one needs something to pull the critters out of the brush into the sendarios in order to spot and stalk.

There is good pig hunting in south Alabama.  You will need to purchase a license.  No bag limit, no closed season.  I've never used a guide or booked a hunt (only hunted with people I know on private land), so I don't know how much those would cost.

I’m seconding Tim’s option for Oz.

It’s a long way , and you’d be looking a 2 day drive once you get here ...

But I’m selfish as I’d really be about USA vs Oz stumping competition interrupted by pig hunting.....

Ben..... if I could pull that one off I would love it, including your schedule of events......  would love to meet up with you and your friends.   

I used to travel as part of my job.  Including to Aus and NZ.   I typically did not travel in "movie star" status, so I vividly recall those trips.   I will say, once I got there ( both places) I was very much welcomed and in heaven.  Great folks and beautiful places.  I have stories, unfortunately none include arrows or bows ( working trip).  Because of some of my past, traveling gets a bit painful, both physically and spiritually.

Take a trip back to Lincoln Ranch.  Or......

There's lots of public land in Texas.  The way Texans talk (no offence Tim) you'd think there's nothing but leases.  Truth be told there are some huge tracts of public land.  The one I hunt is Granger WMU.  It has over a dozen units and I don't know how many acres.  It's convenient for me at just 75 miles from my son's home so daily hunts are easy.  I met Rob Green there and we hunted a unit that was new to me.  I've hunted several units but have a yen for #9.  It's right up against the San Gabriel River and all river bottom hunting.  I've seen plenty of pigs and some good bucks too.  Small bodies with huge racks.  Next year I'm going to hunt the archery deer season.  This particular WMU does not allow gun hunting, it does however allow crossbows in the archery season.  Although I've only met 1 crossbow hunter there pig hunting, a very respectful young man I might add, I expect there'll be more during deer season.  

I guess I've gone off on a tangent.  Texas is a great place with lots of hunting opportunities.  I'm sure there are others closer to your home.  Have fun choosing.  Frank
