I was able to go out 5 times. A friend I met from work raises dogs and has a hog removal "business" he uses for training. He is a carpenter general foreman by trade, but raises Catahoula bay dogs and pitbull catch dogs and enters some regional competition hunts (for advertisement and training really), more of a passion I would say - isn't getting rich financially.

I didn't get my first chance until hunt 3. At first I couldn't keep up to make it in time before they tied it up. It was a ton of running through the swamps listening for the bay dogs while containing a 50-60lb pit and maneuvering them through thickets. Two times were skunked. And then trying to find all of the dogs...it is definitely a tough type of hunt and a lot of effort.

They actually kept a couple and brought back to a 1-2 acre fenced area where they trained pups. Also fattened up with corn and waited a couple months to harvest. Took a lot of the game taste out and got more meat for the effort.

Didn't mean to hijack my own thread with hunting items in the fishing forum, but i could easily make a completely separate hog hunting thread. It was so much fun and unique. It was always his young son (like 9?) and another buddy and he wouldn't allow a gun as didn't want a dog shot.

Thanks for the info. My uncle is always talking about the different birds that frequent the MS flyway. Sucks its so hard to access water there, but its the same in Tx i reckon. MASS private land owned by people that lease it for hunting.

Brings back great memories. I graduated from LSU School of Forestry and then had a great 35 year career with US Forest Service. Get back down there often as possible. Redfish are my favorite to catch and eat! Now I get my boudin, Andouille, crawfish, crab and oyster fix from the Cajun Grocery in Lafayette--they ship direct.
