I am trying to find someone in my area to go on a couple pig hunts with. I have hunted deer, and elk but never just pig. I haven't hunted in about five years, and never in california. I like to use a 30-30, and not a bow. I am an easy going guy, and would love to tag along with a group, or indivisual. I live in Mountain House which is right next door to Tracy. I would prefer to go somewhere within about a four or five hour driving distance. But then again I am not picky at this point.

Anyone up for it let me know.

Also use the advanced search mode here and search pig/hog hunting in this sub forum. There is like a new pig hunting thread every week here. Good luck on your search.

Try Camp Roberts or Hunter-Ligget, better choice than most of the public lands.
.
Your 30-30 might not get the job done. Leveractions are a good idea, but I would look to 45/70 or a shotgun w/slugs if you hunt public land or one of the bases mentioned above. The action is frequently up close and personal, perfect for quick handling open sights gun.

If you pay to hunt private land a bolt gun with scope is fine.

Hunter Liggett and Camp Robberts are in the condor range so you will need unleaded bullets. Camping is available on base for $10 per night with hot showers available at the Gym.

Have you ever shot a pig with a 30/30? I know many guides and that is what they use. I think the 30/30 is a great choice for hog. When I was a kid I watched my dad drop many a hog with his.
