    I've never drawn a tag, but I've seen the Elk there. There are some nice bulls taken out of there. It is wide open foothills, up to 130,000 acres open to hunting. It is a big base and a lot of land to hunt. I've stayed on base in the officers quarters with my friend, hunting quail but there is also a small town not far away or there was a campground.

    I've seen a lot of sign for the pigs when they tear open the ground but I've seen more elk than pigs on my trips there so far. It's a big base to hunt, 130,000 acres with hills. It is a pretty big bit of land to hunt. I've had some awesome quail hunts there too.

    My property is just to the south of the base. There are plenty of elk I have seen driving through to get to the property. Pigs are all over on our place and have seen them off the side of the road around the base as well.

    I used to work at Naval Air Station Lemoore, which is over the coastal range from Fort Hunter Liggett. The commander of Lemoore is also the Commander of FTHL.

    I have hunted pigs on it about 8 or 9 times, the last time was in 2004.

    I can only say that with the shortage of public land in California to hunt wild pigs, that FTHL gets worked pretty hard.

    Elk on the other hand are managed to be fairly close to capacity.

    Active duty get half the tags, and that in itself is enough of a great deal that if I was living in the United States I would apply.

    Elk season on FTHL is sporadic, sometimes they do it early, sometimes late. Call the biologist.
