Default Tree stand or ground blind for summertime hogs....

I'm getting ready to check out some new property round about Macon that I have access to. I'm gonna be trying to collect some bacon over the summer and I'm wondering if the ground blind or a tree stand is going to be my best chance.

I'd keep wind in my face and slip. Too hot to sit.

I've done much better sneaking around into the wind that I have sitting and waiting. If you have a feeder out and know when they're coming, waiting can work.

Sounds like a I know what I'm gonna be doing...

I'm not planning on baiting since I already have enough hogs on the property. Don't want many more.

What these guys said......youll pretty much have no chance down wind. But if you keep into it, you may run into them.....best of luck

and besides all that.....they will not be moving until after dark. they will be laying in the mud, under a bank or somewhere in shade. in these parts, they like branches and under rocks.
