Today, Clay Hayes is back out in the swamps of the deep south bowhunting wild hogs with his recurve selfbow. This is a kayak hog hunt in the salt marsh islands along the coast where tides can play a huge function in feral hog motion patterns and how you hunt them.
In these swamps, the plant life is so thick that you frequently can’t see the pigs till they are within feet of you. So searching them there is a really close quarters area and stalk kind of searching where shot chances are couple of however typically best in your face!
Wild hogs, aka feral hogs, provide a little bit of an ethical dilemma for me. Being a wildlife biologist I understand just how much damage they can do to delicate environments and native types. However as a bow hunter and customer of wild video game, they are simply too great a resource to overlook or wish to get rid of.
However despite the fact that countless dollars are invested every year on feral hog control and population decrease, I believe it’s safe to state that there’ll be plenty to hunt well into the future. All you have actually got to do is want to head out and get one.
In many states there are little to no guidelines governing the searching of wild pigs. On personal land there are frequently no guidelines at all and no closed hog season. On public lands you frequently need to hunt them throughout a season that is open for some other types, such as little video game. You’ll frequently need to hunt them with the weapon that is legal for that season. For instance, a bow, 22 rifle, or shotgun. A few of the other men on this hunt were utilizing longbows and recurves.
