First Hog. Upson county.

Thread starter #1
Last year we had what we thought was one hog show up on some of our trail cameras. Well, a member shot that one. Then fast forward to June when we started putting cameras out again and we had what seems to be a lot.
this was my first hog! There are a couple larger ones we’ve got on camera, but I couldn’t resist and I’d been sitting in that hot heat for 4 hours when they came in.

Same on our lease in Upson. We started with pictures of just one then several big groups came the next year. We have one member that killed two this past weekend and hopefully he'll knock some more down.

Our club is just south of Thomaston.

from my time here in pigville, there is no such thing as one hog or one roach, you got work to do up there. trapping, dogs and thermals for night hunting of forget about deer in that area.

I could have killed 5 just across the river Sunday. There was a buck grunting about 70 yards away or I would have. I am sure I would have killed 3 before the others scattered.
 
I remember being so excited when we got our first hogs, never had hunted or killed any before, seemed cool at the time. I absolutely despise them now.
Welcome to Team Swine Hate...they are the most miserable critter God ever placed on the Earth. I kill anywhere from 6-10 a week and they just keep showing up. I go 4-5 times a week with thermal equipment then shoot them while deer hunting too.

Only way I can move them out for a while is with dogs...but until deer season goes out I have to control them with a rifle. I wish there was a disease that could be introduced and wipe them out completely. If I never saw another one it would suit me....
 
Been deer hunting for 49 years. I have never killed a hog. This year I missed a 300 pounder or +. I felt like Pat Garrett letting Billy the Kid get away.

As despicable and good eating as they are, I suspect if CWD takes hold of Georgia's deer population, there will be a lot of guys hunting pigs regularly.
