King City area, maybe 30 miles north of Paso Robles, is crawling with pigs. I drove from OC and hunted the next am, we got 4 between the three of us in a guided hunt.

Pig hunting on public land is extremely unproductive for the most part. The other options are private land much better success rate, or Military bases such as Camp Roberts, or Fort Hunter Liggett.
I hunt FHL, for the most part, if you are interested in some good options, PM me and I'll go over them with you.

PatriotnMore you are right about being unproductive.
I'm in Socal and just came back from Los Padres National Forest to do some pig hunting for the first time. Unfortunately no piggies and also tried calling in some coyotes but none at all. Its seems everyone with private land up there says no to hunters.

Luckily I met a guy up there camping with his son and he says his parents have 600 acres of cattle land in Lompoc and are having a problem with pigs & varmints. My buddy and I got his number so hopefully with some luck we'll be out there in the near future doing some pig hunting. I have my fingers crossed.

Hey DWA and Gunaria there is some public land in del puerto canyon that i scouted out about 3 months ago for pigs that showed lots of trail beds, not fresh though. You have to get a permit from Stanislaus County Ag Department thats 20 bucks and limited. The only other place i know of is Hunters Valley at the back side of Lake McClure. I haven't heard of any pigs there but definitly deer, plus lots of land to glass.

Guneria, how'd you do today. I don't know if it hit 90 where you went, but it was high 80's in Concord. I can't imagine that helps the mid-day hunting.

jcaoloveshine: Do what I did. I took the Hunter Education course online which only cost $15. Once you pass it you'll get to print a certificate. Take that certificate to the hunter education class pay the $10 fee they charge and all you have to do is sit in for a 4 hour class and take the test instead of a 8 hour class then taking the test. Saved myself a from sitting in a classroom all day.

Just got back from the hunt a little while ago. It was hot!

I tried to get more Calgunners to go on this hunt but they all backed out. So there was only two of us. We should have had two fat piggies but we missed them.

Other trip highlights include:

Getting pulled over by a Chippie

Seeing the smallest rattle snake ever in my life

Saw a nice Bald Eagle

Saw a mamma turkey and a dozen tiny chicks following her.

Saw another big bird that maybe an immature Cali Condor or Bald Eagle

Gunaria: Sounds like you had a sweet trip. Yeah we didn't catch anything either but it felt great to be outdoors away from the city.

So whose going to plan this Calguns Piggie Hunt? Can we get one of the veteran hunters to put something together?

Wish I could have joined you! If I had gone the CHP wouldnt have had a chance Radar detectors for the win!

I'm leaving for work over the summer so I wont be back till the end of summer. Which makes sense since I doubt any of you guys will go hunt in the summer heat. Then again some of you guys are hard core!

Here is some interesting Hog Harvest data from the DFG.

From the looks of things, SoCal pig hunting is very tuff.

Gunaria,

PM me the next time you're going pig hunting and want some company. Looks from your previous post that you're in the East Bay (?) and we we could carpool to the hunt location.

I was sorely tempted to chime in for this weekend, but had projects planned around the house.

Advance notice is always good.

So where could we go to get some hogs? It seems most of the people interested are from socal, but are willing to go north somewhere to find them.

PM me next time you guys go out. I'd love to go on a group hunt. I'm out in the East Bay as well. With the insane gas prices nowadays, a carpool would be a good idea.

Thanks!

Here's the pictures from our scouting trip. Lots of vegetation and beautiful scenery, but didnt see one dang animal. Maybe a bird every hour, I was pretty upset. It might have been the heat and the late timing we had during the day.

r08ert209cali: Let us know how your private land deal works out.

I'm also in the process of working on some private land right now.
Hopefully things turn out great and they'll let me bring a nice group of us out for a hunt. I'll keep you guys updated.

xYourLocalAR15x: Los Padres National Forest is "BUSTED". We are never going there for pig again.

The publication covers wild pig hunting. The depredation permit totals show a different story. There are a lot of wild boar in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties, but access to good public land is difficult.

The last boar I took in Ventura County required a 350 yard shot, about two hours crawling on my hands and knees following the blood trail, and I had to quarter and pack the bugger out through some very rough terrain. Guided hunts are well worth the money...

If the sun is up, and especially on hot days, the pigs are in bed. They're nocturnal. I think you found them in the last picture. Wild boar love steep terrain and dense vegetation. I only see them in open areas (like the areas shown in the first few pictures) when they are traveling between food and where they bed down during the day, which is usually before sunrise. The problem this year is that there is still too much food in areas that are inaccessible. As the vegetation dries out, the pigs will have to travel farther to get food, which usually means they have to cross open areas. In some parts of the Los Padres and adjacent areas, pigs are finding that they like the food in avocado orchards.

The question is, did you see many fresh trails through the grass? Areas where the soil as been turned over, especially under oak trees? Any "tunnels" through dense vegetation? Any soil depressions about the size of a pig under low-lying trees and vegetation?
