It's in Humbolt so that's relatively close for you. My buddies have always had good luck there and are going up this weekend, I was suppose to go but I couldn't cough up enough cash.

I just started looking for a hog guide as well. I didn't know these guides were so expensive! Let me know who you go with and how your experience turns out.

500-600 is the going rate these days. Ive guided in the past for numerous outfitters. Pm me if you are interested. I could point you in some good directions. Wether it be a guide or a broker.

rifle for now, possibly bow in the future but would have to learn it first

Just go to BHCR for a canned hunt. It is cheaper and you dont need a guide.

You need a license but no tag. You also dont need lead free ammo.

What kind of rifle would you use for hog? Or should i ask what round?

professionalcoyotehunter

Anything larger than a .243 should be sufficient.

So how about a M1a?

That should do fine. Is it scoped?

I would stay in the bed of my truck or a tent and make it like a real hunt.:D

Same here, especially if lodging wasn't included.

Give Tim Lockwood a call. I've hunted with him for pigs and bear, with and without hounds. Good guy, good guide.

Just go to BHCR for a canned hunt. .

LOL Sorry but a canned hunt is about as much fun as taking a s**t. i went unknowingly on one and I was pretty disgusted. i rather go on public land spend a weekend in the woods and not get anything than to go on another canned hunt.

Whoa, easy there. That's the highlight of my day. But canned hunting? Eh, not so much. If they turn you loose and it's up to you to go get it, ok (Tejon). But when they walk you right up to the feeder and stick the muzzle in the pet pigs ear, not really fun.

for me, the guide is a way to learn stalking, field dressing, etc.

sheesh, for $900 you can probably fly to Texas, kill 2 hogs and fly back.... might still be cheaper than $900..... thats highway robery

Hell Ill split gas and we can go to my wifes familys ranch near dallas and bag as many as we want and be able to put them on ice to get them home and it would still be cheaper.

Between Redding and RedBluff.

I've hunted and fished Dye Creek before. It's a neat place.

We should thinl about a road trip. It would not be too bad with 3+ going out there.

Adding my name to the pool! Although we would need a trailer just to hold all the coolers coming back full. At those prices, I'm good for about three pigs.

No license needed. bhcr.

I was there a couple of weeks ago, and it took all day of some of the toughest terrain that I have hunted in to find a russian boar. 7am till about 4pm and I finally spotted one, snuck up to 45 yards, and got it with my bow.

It was an amazing hunt, and I will go back for sure.(when all this meat is eaten, lol.)



You need a license but no tag. You also dont need lead free ammo.

prob makes more sense to find a closer place to road trip to with comparable prices since this place is a days drive from the the border of texas on the west side.

I guess since I hunt coyotes there after I need the license.
