I noticed that they have an after deer season hog season. Are there lots of hogs up there? I've read that there is a place that used to be a hunting reserve and that is the source of the hog infestation.

The other question I have are there lots of landowners that let you hunt them or is that a myth? I know in other states they whine about the hogs but then charge you to hunt them. \:\)

I've been to South Carolina hunting hogs in the swamps and I'm addicted. Since I can't get the landowner to give me a clear day to return, I'm probably just going to pay for a trip up on the plateau. It isn't that much more than the cost of driving there and staying and you usually get a big hog since they are fenced hunts.

Also, I've heard of a couple of WMAs that you can shoot them during big game seasons. I'm going to look into that as well.

it's a fun hunt just to get out of the house. it's a waste of time if you expect to kill or even see a hog.

I agree 100%, never been there but any reason to get out of the house is a great reason to go.

I hunted up there with some buddies a few years back and while there was hog sign everywhere we didn't collect any hogs. Beautiful country and a good hike every day and like mentioned earlier, it's a nice way to get back in the woods after deer season closes. Those old hogs are pretty durn crafty.

I'm thinking of taking my wife's stupid horse up there. \:D I pay every stinking month for that stupid thing, surely I can use it as a pack horse or something. :P

That because you need dogs to hog hunt
