Question about Hamilton Ridge WMA

Thread starter #1
Has anyone ever hunter there? I am goin down there on the 3 day dog hunt and I'm not from SC and I was just wonderin if theres alot of hogs in there and is anyone goin down there. I dont have anyone going and I could use some advice and tips to gettin on the hogs in there. Thanks
 
Don't waste your time. There will be 1000 people and 10000 dogs all 3 days as I learned last year. Beware of the jerks who drive around with catchdogs on top of the truck and turn em loose on your bays and get your hog and gone before you make it to the bay. Happened a lot this past year.

Thanks, would it be worth the trip to try and go down there! I have off fri and sat, should i change it to thur and fri. What is the best way to get there from augusta. I dont really know my way around SC yet!
 
Like WildLifeCorey said its gets worse every year more and more people flood in to the place... heard last year from a couple guys that went that run Garmin tracking systems that so many people were down there they had a hard time keeping up wit there dog because of the bleed over from everyone else's systems

I am going back home to Fl in 2 weeks for good so if there in anyone that can take someone plz PM me and I am def willing to pay and I dont want the hog or anything, I just want to get the dogs out of the pen. Thanks for all the info

Wow that's an old thread. I hunted the last hunt when international paper employees lost it in June 24 06 ( my daughters b-day) That place is beautiful lots of hogs back then I used to work right up the rd at Bostick they made sure hogs stayed around
