quote:We hunt in a 3 or 4 square mile area that has a ton of inaccessable areas due to thick underbrush in the woods. Hogs have plenty of places to bed down in safety during the day and have become nocturnal. It seems they've turned the deer that way to by moving them all night. The hog population has exploded and it's been rare to see deer at all this season.
Yeah, for some reason they move a lot during the day where we hunt. They move at night too, but we have a serious problem. It helps having a pipeline to hunt on, they cross it very often. When we're hunting hogs though, we get down and go after them. You can hear a group of them from a pretty good distance. You can track them to their beds also, if the ground is soft enough.
quote:Therin lies the problem. We hunt a timber lease. Thick woods and swampy areas. The timber company will clear cut a spot here or there but a good bit of the land is full of dense underbrush and is pretty much inaccessable. Makes for great hiding/bedding spots for deer and hogs but sucks if you are trying to kill those hogs. I'm starting to think that mass trapping, then slaughtering, is the way to go.
What is the land like? Any open areas like in my video?
