I have hunted Big South Fork area and have killed a hog there. 2 years ago we were camping on Charit Creek and I shot a 260 lb boar.There is a another group of hunters I went with and he shot a 350lb (total guess at weight) down near the lodge on station camp. Plenty of sign everywhere, especially creek bottoms. I know the area well as it is one of my favorite places on earth and was there hunting hog 3 weeks ago.

Its funny you bring up the Feb 22 weekend as my brother , a friend and I will be camping/hunting in BSF as well. We know a few decent areas where hog sign is fresh but we have not seen a hog in 2 years. They are nocturnal by nature starting in the warmer parts of the year and through hunting season (because of more people in the area of course). But now is the time to get to them and especially the weekends when it warms up into the 50's and 60's. Good luck. Let me know how you do and I will do that same.

Will do.. so far my game plan is to enter near the zenith canoe launch and hike 4-6 miles along the North White Oak Creek.. It is pretty close to the Bandy but I am going to try the North White Oak since the terrain looks tougher and there is less chance of serious hunting pressure. Going to follow the creek until I find some fresh sign and camp out around 800-1000 yards from the location. Hunt early morning from 5a.m.-9:30.. come back and possibly nap gather firewood till 2:30pm go back out and hunt till dark.. come back start a fire and get ready to do it all over again teh next day



i can save you some trouble, you will not find any pigs on north white oak.

Cool, if you plan something early in advance for next year me and my other buddy may try to plan something as well. I have been thinking about it for a couple years just never made it happen.

Yes I did. No hogs. Sign near parch corn was the same rooting I saw the month earlier. Laurel fork had some good sign in it, but no hogs. I did see 6 horseman get tossed into the South Fork river though! We will be heading back during hunting season for sure.
