Read your hunting guide. You dont need a license to kill hogs. Theres no seasonr ether. Take you money to another state to hunt hogs

Try one of the barrier island hunts off the coast of Georgia. Fun and hogs galore. Great primitive camping by boat!


There's all kinds of hogs to shoot! Big and small it's fun for all.



There's plenty of deer! Island deer are fairly tiny.



I dumped this guy on the dead run.......it was sure fun!

I head shot this deer in a salt water march. Could only see the head and not the spots. It tasted so good!!

Call your state Rep. and ask him why you have to go out of state to hunt hogs.

What did he do? did he ban hog hunting in Tn or something or did he make it too hard for someone to hunt them here?

I didn't here what he done yet and i hate to call them because it will take all day before you get to talk to someone.

There is a open hunt for hogs at Catoosa in early January I think it's about the last hunt open for hogs in the state.

You can legally take hogs on North Cumberland on any hunt. There are a crap load of them up there in places. I saw more hog sign up there the one time I've been this year, than I have ever seen.

Since you obviously don't own your own property to kill them on that option is out. Now you must find a landowner who is willing to call TWRA and get a permit and have you placed on it to be able to legally kill a hog.

I'll try to find a farmer that is willing to call TWRA and put me on the list to hunt them.

Two questions for you fellas to anwser

1. has anyone ever put an add on Craigslist to hunt hogs free of charge for the farmers or anything like that?

2.The other question i got is can i Legaly do that to find a place to hunt them?

The BSF hunt is tough.Not alot of hogs and alot of land.Be prepared to cover alot of ground and see alot of hog sign,but not see any hogs..Thats usually the way it goes up there.I used to hunt it every year for hogs,but its not worth the effort.

Yes its a rough hunt. if you see a lot of sign somethings making them just gotta be there when the time is right. if you have a 4 wheeler you can cover a lot of ground

I thought they were legal. last year we went in behind the camp ground, drove as far as my truck would go then we walked down the hill to the bridge by the river and there was a 4 wheeler parked there? So im not sure but i thought there was 4 wheeler trails there?

Hogs are there. Get in the woods early....very early. Be setup on creek bottoms or mouths by sunrise. Best chance to see a hog. I have seen a few and shot 1 there in the last 2 years.

I was just there 3 weeks ago and I am going back hunting/camping in 2 weeks.

Don't over look any clear cuts ether. Sounds strange for hogs but we've killed 10 in the last 3 saturdays that all came out of gullys in clearcuts and thickets. I know you can't have dogs there but a good drive will work too

Hog hunts are illegal in TN. Unless you are one of the chosen, pre-approved, exemptions. The TWRA believes that killing hogs causes them to increase if it is done by the 170,000 people who pay the highest resident license fees in the United States. Killing them will only help if it is done by TWRA employees who are paid by those license fees. They admitted to spending $304,000 on hog traps, trailers to haul them, and game cameras to set at the traps in January 2012 but refused to admit how much they spent on man hours/labor.

"Would like to keep my money in Tn." Why? They obviously don't want hog hunters in their state.

It appears that ATV's are allowed on authorized hunting access routes while actively hunting deer and boar. See this link for more info http://www.nps.gov/biso/planyourvisit/hunting.htm
