What You Need To Bring on Your Hog / Wild Boar Hunting Trip
Texas is the number one state in North America for wild hogs / boars / feral pigs. As Wikipedia states: “Boar hunting is generally the practice of hunting wild boars, but can also extend to feral pigs and peccaries. A full-sized boar is a large animal armed with sharp tusks which it uses to defend itself. Boar hunting has often been a test of bravery.”
I prefer to hunt wild hogs / boars / feral pigs on open land, not private land. Private land is normally stocked and where is the skill in cornering a boar against a fence. My clients generally prefer the tracking and hunting, this way they use all their skills to capture the boar rather than simply trapping it against a fence.
Wild Pig / Boar Hunting Experience
The hunt is yours but be warned that it can get really intense, really fast.
I WARN my clients on every hunt about wild hogs / boars / feral pigs they are NOT domestic in any way and can be very aggressive and mean. When hunting wild hogs / boars / feral pigs I always caution my clients to be very watchful and observant. I have had a lifetime of experience and I still am very watchful and careful around wild hogs / boars / feral pigs. You just never know what a wild animal might do to escape.
What do You Need to Bring
All you need to bring is yourself and your Texas hunting license. You can also purchase it online from the link at the bottom of this page. I have all the gear that you will need to catch hogs & wild boars. However, if you prefer your own gear as many do, you are more than welcome to bring your own. Sun screen, polarized sunglasses and snacks are all also a good idea.
I look forward to your hunt, Captain Mark Malfa.
