Bow hunting wild hogs is a great way to feed your family, get some fresh air and, surprisingly, help your community. Indeed, the opportunistic wild swine is a destructive, invasive species. Wild hogs cause as much as $400 million in damages annually. Ecologists, farmers and parks services don’t want them on their land because they edge out other wildlife, erode the soil and disrupt native vegetation. So what do we do? We go hunting!

You can use a firearm to hunt hogs, but nothing quite compares to stalking a sly pig with a bow in hand. Hunters love bow hunting wild hogs because they’re abundant, elusive and always put up a good fight. And then, of course, there’s the meat. When properly butchered and processed (more on that below), feral hogs produce tasty sausages, pork chops, ribs and bacon. Ready to go? Pelican is here to help you pack up your bow case and hit the mud for a thrilling hog hunt.

How to Hunt Wild Hogs

#1

Scouting is all about nabbing a beast of a pork feast. To do this, you need to know where your prey will be hanging out. Try scouting from afar with your binoculars, but don’t forget to spend plenty of time near water sources where they might do their muddying (hey, they’re known for being dirty). Feral hogs enjoy living in both heavily brushy areas and muddy wallows, so make sure to keep your eyes open for hog tracks, rooting holes, droppings & hair. Hogs tend to rub themselves on trees, fences and boulders too, so look out for traces of mud & clumps of hair that can help you track their whereabouts

#2

Another great advantage of hog hunting is that they have a very poor sense of sight. Unfortunately, this can make their hearing and sense of smell much stronger. This can be an disadvantage if you’re upwind from them! Therefore, you may not need the most intense camouflage or the best equipment. However, you’ll still want to move slowly and not make sudden movements for safety reasons.

#3

The principles of hog and deer hunting differ greatly, with different shot placement. Hogs have much more fat and they often block entry and exit points. This means gunshots are necessary to deliver a good kill-shot. The vital organs on hogs are also in a different location than those found on whitetails, so it’s important to get the right shot if you want. One clean shot is to aim quartering-away (ideal for larger boars) and lower your aim to target the heart. Broadside shooting (best for small hogs) can be taken by aiming to the midpoint of the chest, right behind the front shoulder

What is Brucellosis?

If you want to reduce the risk of getting brucellosis from feral hogs, you need to handle them carefully. The illness is caused by germs that spread through birthing fluids & semen and infected hogs can carry these germs for life. Be aware of brucellosis symptoms – fever, chills, sweating, low appetite, fatigue. Follow safe field dressing guidelines to protect yourself and others by spreading germs.

How to Dress Hogs after Hunting?

Always use clean, sharp knives. Remember to wear protective eye wear  & gloves when working with wild hogs. When you’re done, make sure to burn or bury your unused gloves or other waste parts of the hog so there’s nothing left for animals to access then get sick from. For safe field dressing procedures, we recommend using the wild hog harvesting and dress guide from Mississippi State University.

Knowledge of Laws

Outside of making sure you adhere to your state’s hunting regulations, you have to make sure that the type of hog hunting you want to do doesn’t violate any other laws. For instance, in some states hog hunting is only legal with a rifle. Hogs are often hunted year-round in many states. There’s an abundance of them, so you can hunt as many as you want without meeting a bag limit in most places.
