Default Best Hog Hunter in the Ga,Fl,Al area

Who do u think is the best Hog Hunter in the area? Please dont anyone nominate theirselves, and its not going to be someone who has been hunting for only a couple of years. Finally lets keep this fun without anyone getting angry. I say Plott man Scotty Pitts from Dothan AL is the best in the tri state area and he hunts all three states and has been catching hogs for over 20 years.

It's not whose the best hog hunter, it's whose got the best spots to go.

All a man does is let the dogs loose and get places to hunt.

Some people tend to forget........it is the dogs that do all the work. And like JohnE said.....if you got a place slap full of hogs.....well then....the dogs have it a bit easy now don't they?

most of them around here have been run so much they know whats coming...just because there are allot around ...they just don't fall to pieces when the dogs come around...they change zip codes if not area codes... i think the person goes along with the dogs...if you got a fair person with good dogs is he going to catch as many as a good person with better than average dogs

X2 a hunter is as good as his dogs are. the best hunter would be the man with the best dogs and we have discussed numorous times that every hunters opion on a dog is different.

I should have put hunter/dog man. The best hog hunter would have dogs that he has raised and trained not bought. The reason i said should have been hunting for a while is ive saw a lot of hog hunters come in with a bunch of money and buy up a couple of dogs and then get out . We have a lot of hogs in sw GA and they r runners, when deer season goes out i be glad to take some of yall hunting and show u. I can already tell though some people wanted nominate themselves. Why donthog/dggers have the sense of camraderie that other dog hunters have. The other hunters nominate folks for hunter of the year, dog of the year etc, through the their association, (APA) NPHA. I know that it is an opinion on who is the best and i know everybody has hunted with someone who has better dogs than they have if not u aint hunted much!

Well I live next to an old timer who has caught more hogs then he knows what to do with. Honestly, he has killed more of every game than anyone I have ever met. I don't think he even knows what a computer looks like, let alone use one. Heck, I aint ever seen him on a phone. My point is how can I nominate the best when the best are the ones that you never hear about?

LIsten Y'all, with midterm elections here, why don't you go ahead and put in a vote for my man Jim...he's fair, don't say too much, and can mow the heck out of a lawn. Much more than I can say for most in office

Best one ever is whoever just called and said "let's go!" LOL
Seriously, had a bunch of great guys help me so far and still teaching me something every time we go. Wouldn't single one out and wouldn't trade a one either.

Most dog men brag on their dogs,not some showboat,(or even truly outstanding) individual. And if you don't think we stick together, check out the forum you're on.

These made me laugh out loud. Thanks ThunderRoad, needed that today. I'll throw another vote in for "Drunk Jim". Tell him to have a Ole Milwaukee in Mules honor since he won't be seeing this.

I am honored to have you aboard my good sir...I will hand him a brew saying, "this bud's for you, Drunk Jim. From me, and Mule at the GON board."

Then he will say, "what the heck is a GON board?"
Then I will say, "Just shut up and drink you ole' rumpot"


THATS 2 FOR DRUNK JIM!!!!!

To all the best hog hunters! Prove your dogs and yourselves by entering the wild hog challenge at Bass Pro in Macon. Let's see what you can bring in. I don't want to hear any excuses about being too far. This is the one boys; put up or shut up!Good prize money plus bragging rights. I personally challenge every hog hunter out there to see what we can bring in. It's time to get fired up!

hawg dawg I will be there for sure but I wish the format was a little diffrent it kind of seems to me that any one who has some dogs can get lucky and catch one big hog I wish it was the most hogs or the most weight on 5 hogs would be even better just my 2 cents
