I'm looking for a N. Cal pig hunt

I normally go to the Coalinga area and hunt pigs for around the $500 range but am looking for something more in the northern Ca area. Maybe Cottonwood or Redding.

Has anyone been successful with a outfitter in these areas that can can give me a recommendation?
Thanx

Red bank outfitters out of Red Bluff. My daughter went to a summer camp there. Great people.

Take a look at rawhide west. My dad did a hunt with them in August. Had a great time. Got a good hog. They have several ranches just out of redding and price is right in there

I believe it was 900. But it was 3 days all inclusive meals, beverages, lodging and guided. They took you everywhere. They have a few ranches to hunt

Checked out Red Bank. They look promising. Have you hunted with them?

Haven't hunted with them but met the guides. They do a summer camp where kids get shooting instruction, hunter ethics, fishing, hunters safety etc...... The guides run the camp and they all knew what they were talking about.

I would definitely consider them!! Seen a few hunts on tv that were filmed there too.

When I was just starting to hunt my dad had me go to the summer camp at Red Bank, I don't know how the hunts are there but the camp was great and so were the people!

It's kind of on the expensive side, but I've deer hunted through a hunting lease a couple years on the Dye Creek preserve, 37,650 acre property. I saw a lot big boars on the property all while I was there. It's in Northern CA not far from Red Bluff if your looking for something in the Red Bluff area.

I like the looks of Red Bank but haven't made contact. The place Ive gone for pigs is back on. The pigs have moved out for the last two years and are now back so I'm probably going to go there again. It's a friends place and for $500 I can shoot as many as I want.

I hope you will be able to fill up your freezer and shoot a bunch. Pigs are pretty intrusive out here in a lot of areas. I see them almost every time I hike up in the hills next to my home. Some of them look like small cows at first glance in the distance. Sadly it is county property up there by me and they are safe from being hunted.

Red Bluff Ale and Quail out of Red Bluff, Ca. will provide a great hunt but they're a little pricey. Rocky Ridge Hunting Club is another good choice and their prices are a little better, $500 a day or $750 for two days. rockyridgehuntigclub.com (http://www.rockyridgehuntingclub.com) Both of these ranches have lots of hogs.

$500 for a pig. That's alot if you ask me especially for a nuisance animal. Just my opinion. I would never pay for a guided pig hunt either, but on the other hand lots of people do.

I think it is way too much too but that is the cheapest I have found! It's crazy.

I've paid $500 plenty of times for a pig hunt but it was guided and as may pigs as I wanted to shoot. That to me is a smokin deal!

Hook me up! Jk. 500 for multiple pigs would be worth it for sure.

Ok, $500 for multipule hogs and guided.....that sounds more worth it. One pig hunt I would pay for is in texas... My buddy was workin out in texas and was telling me they have a helicopter hog hunt. That would be cool shootin them things out of a chopper, if I'm not mistaken he said it was around $500?

Oh Hell ya that would be fun. I would pay about $500 for that. I'm always seeing FREE hog hunts in Texas too but I'm sure there is some catch to it.

I've been hunting Texas for the last 4 years. I hunted them in Calif when I lived ther, hunted near Hunter Liggett. Most of the Texas hunting is a lot different than Calif. Hunt in elevated blinds at food plots with feeders. (at least thats my experience) Pretty common there. I hunt on a friends property (no guide fees) and don't need a hunting license. Local game warden agrees that they are a "pest" and can be shot like vermin. Even if one was needed, it is less than $50.00 for NR. I have hunted in the fall when deer season is on and in the spring concurrent with turkey season. Shot pigs every time. Didn't want to hunt deer, but did shoot 4 tom turkeys in the last spring hunt, along with 2 hogs.One turkey weighed #23 gutted, had 1 1/2 spurs and a 11" beard....was a huge bird! I prefer to shoot pigs in the 125 to 200# range. This a great size for eating and I really can't tell much difference between a boar & sow. IMHO they are about as good eating wild animal as I have ever tasted. I am going back in April again!!

I agree they are GREAT eating. Haven't killed any in Teas but did see them when I was there deer hunting. The 3 I've killed were in Ca. around Coalinga. There used to be a ton of pigs there on this ranch we hunted but the last few years they've moved out so we haven't been there in awhile. But they are on the way back in now so I hope to make it there this March. I don't care for the way we hunt them at this ranch. They are hunted in the headlites of a pickup truck at night on the run this method is the norm. We have taken 2 spot and stock which is my preferred method. No feeders but they like to eat hay that is stacked for the cattle so pretty much the same as a feeder. Also there is a lot of oil that seeps up through large pipes and the pigs like to rub their body's on the pipes covering themselves in oil. I guess to keep the bugs off. It's odd to have crude oil on your hands when gutting and capeing one of them that is covered in it.

I used to hunt the Fort Hunter Liggett military base before 911 happened. I mostly hunted quail back then with some friends when we ran English Pointers and Lewellyn Setters. It is awesome quail country too. It has 162,000 acres and depending on if the military trains 130, 000 of it is open to hunting on the weekends. The areas get pretty torn up by the pigs but I'd tend to see more elk and quail. They charge a year pass fee now, $100 a year. It sounds like Texas has some great pig hunting too. Like CA, I'll gather the pig hunting tends to be best on the private land.

Yep...there is almost no public land for hunting in Texas.
