Embark on a private and fully guided hog hunt with an expert guide!

Set off on a good ol’ down-home hog-hunting adventure! We’re talkin’ ’bout a private, fully guided boar hunt, led by a bonafide expert. It’s gonna be you, them hogs, and a guide who knows ’em better than Grandma knows her pickled piglets recipe. 

This here ain’t no ordinary hunt, mind ya – you’ll have your very own guide right there with ya, showin’ ya the ropes and spillin’ all their hog hunting wisdom. So hitch up them britches, grab your gear, and let’s head out yonder for a pig hunting escapade that’ll have you grinnin’ like a possum eatin’ a sweet tater!

Can my guide take photos and videos of me on my experience?

Lemme break it down for ya real good. That guide of yours, well, their main job is to make sure you come outta this here adventure with all your limbs intact and a big ol’ grin on your face.

When it comes down to the nitty-gritty of takin’ down that critter, your guide’s keepin’ an eagle eye on safety. They’re like your guardian angel with a shotgun, watchin’ over you so you can focus on makin’ that kill shot count.

Now, if y’all wanna make memories to show off back home, like them action-packed photos or videos of you struttin’ your stuff in the great outdoors, well, here’s a thought: rope in one of your buddies from the crew. Let ’em be the official paparazzi, snappin’ shots of you while you’re in the zone. That way, your guide can stick to their guns – figuratively and literally – keepin’ that watchful eye on you, makin’ sure nothin’ goes south.

So, partner, remember: if it’s about the hunt, chat up your guide. But if it’s about capturin’ the moment, enlist a friend so your guide can keep y’all safe and sound.

What kind of hunting experience does my guide have?

Well now, let me tell ya ’bout them guides we got ’round these parts. Almost all of ’em are true-blue Florida natives, born and raised under that Southern sun. Shoot, they’ve been chasin’ after critters ever since they were knee-high to a grasshopper, learnin’ the ropes of huntin’ right from the cradle.

You see, there’s a wild streak in ’em that just can’t be tamed. They got a hankerin’ for the great outdoors like a catfish’s gotta swim. From the time they could barely toddle, they’ve had the woods and swamps as their playpen. It’s in their blood, I tell ya – that love for the hunt, the thrill of trackin’ and bringin’ in a good ol’ buck.

So, when you’re out with these guides, you ain’t just gettin’ some fancy-pants know-how. Nah, you’re gettin’ generations of knowledge passed down, from one generation of huntin’ enthusiasts to the next. And they’ll make sure your huntin’ experience is more exciting than a rodeo on a Saturday night.

Is it still a private experience If I'm a solo hunter?

I see you’re wonderin’ ’bout the solo huntin’ situation. Now, lemme spin you a yarn ’bout it. Even if you’re ridin’ solo on this here hunt, don’t you fret none. It’s gonna be as private as a raccoon’s stash in a hollow tree. That’s right, you and your very own private guide are gonna be hittin’ them trails together.

Just imagine it: you, your trusty guide, and the wild frontier stretchin’ out before ya. It’s like a dance between you and them woods – all quiet, all adventure. No need to worry ’bout outsiders pokin’ their noses in your business. It’s your time to shine, your moment to show them critters who’s boss ’round these parts!

Will I be paired or grouped with other people on my experience?

Here’s the lowdown on the privacy of your hunt. Now, listen up good, ’cause this here’s the real deal – your hunt is as private as a secluded fishing hole on a lazy summer day. Ain’t no strangers or nosy onlookers taggin’ along, no siree!

Picture this: It’s gonna be you, standin’ tall with your guide, ready to take on the backwoods of Florida. And guess what? You can bring along your kin, your buddies, or anyone else you reckon would enjoy the thrill of the hunt. It’s your own posse, your own adventure, and it’s gonna be a memory y’all won’t soon forget.

So, remember this – it’s just you, your guide, and your chosen bunch, huddled together for an escapade that’s gonna be talked ’bout ’round the fire for years to come. Keep it private, keep it wild, and keep the good times rollin’. Yeehaw!

Cruise along winding paths on a monster swamp buggy!

Hop on board that they’re swamp buggy and join the jamboree as we mosey through them enchantin’ Florida backwoods. This here beast of a contraption can fit anywhere from six to eight of your kin and buddies, guaranteeing a rip-roarin’ good time for all y’all. So gather up your loved ones, round ’em up like a herd of cattle, and let’s set off on a wild and rambunctious adventure that’ll have y’all hootin’ and hollerin’ from start to finish!

How many passengers can ride on the swamp buggy?

Our swamp buggies are like the kings of the swamp, and they’re built to haul you and your crew right into the heart of the action!

Now, most of these buggies come with five seats, includin’ one for the fella or gal drivin’ the show. But here’s the kicker – them railings on the sides, they’re like your own personal perch. You can stand right up and get a bird’s-eye view of the whole wild show, like you’re on a thrill ride through the heart of the swamp.

Now, hold on to your hats, ’cause here’s where it gets interestin’. Them buggies, they’re like the party bus of the backwoods. Depending on how big y’all are, you can squeeze in anywhere from six to eight folks. That’s right, you bring the gang, and we’ll make sure there’s a spot for everyone.

But that ain’t all – we’ve got more than one of these buggies ready to roll. So, if you’re wranglin’ up a bigger bunch of kin and friends, don’t fret. We’ve got a whole fleet of swamp buggies and other vehicles, all fired up and ready to take y’all on a wild ride through the swamp.

So, whether you’re sittin’ or standin’, a small crew or a big posse, we’ve got the wheels to get you out there and chasin’ them hogs. It’s like your own wild wagon train, ready to venture deep into the heart of the huntin’ grounds.

Can I hog hunt on foot without using a swamp buggy?

Now, listen up and listen good, ’cause I’m ’bout to give you the lowdown on huntin’ them hogs on foot. Now, picture this – them wild pigs, they ain’t no cuddly critters. Nope, they got a mean streak, and they ain’t afraid to charge and attack outta the blue. It’s like they got a grudge against knee caps, I tell ya.

But don’t you worry none, ’cause we’ve got a trick up our sleeve. Enter the swamp buggy, like a fortress on wheels. It’s your trusty steed, keepin’ you safe from them hoggy nightmares. It’s got the power to outrun ’em critters, and it’s your best shot at keepin’ up with them dogs – trust me, them hounds are like greased lightning when they’re on a scent.

Now, here’s the deal – you can hop off that swamp buggy when we spot a hog, but hold on a tick. While we’re trackin’ down them porkers, you best stay put right there on the buggy. It’s like your shield, protectin’ you from them chargers and makin’ sure you live to tell the tale.

So there you have it, friend. Huntin’ them hogs on foot, it’s like dancin’ with danger. But with that swamp buggy by your side, you’ll be like a cowboy in an armored wagon, ready to face whatever them wild hogs throw your way.

Do I have to hunt from the swamp buggy?

When we’re out huntin’ and them hound dogs manage to pin down a hog, most hunters’ll climb down from that trusty swamp buggy. They wanna be right in the thick of the action, feel the thrill of the hunt up close and personal. It’s like gettin’ front-row seats to a rowdy rodeo.

But now, let’s not jump the gun – there’s times when a hunter might just decide to take that shot from the comfort of the swamp buggy. Could be the critter’s in a tricky spot or the angle’s just right, and it makes more sense to squeeze that trigger from where they’re sittin’.

See, it’s all ’bout readin’ the situation and doin’ what’s gonna give you the best chance at baggin’ that hog. Sometimes you gotta be on the ground, boots in the mud, and other times, the buggy’s the best perch to take that shot. So, whether you’re hoppin’ off or stayin’ put, remember one thing – it’s all ’bout that perfect shot, partner.

Work with trained hunting dogs as they sniff out hogs!

Team up with some of the smartest, top-tier huntin’ dogs y’all ever laid eyes on! These ain’t your run-of-the-mill pups – no siree, these here are real trained experts! You’ll be right there, kickin’ back and watchin’ ’em do their thing, trackin’ down hogs with noses sharper than a palmetto spine and tails waggin’ like a windmill in a storm.

And let me tell ya, when them dogs corner a hog, it’s like watchin’ a good ol’ classic showdown, with snorts and barks raisin’ a ruckus that’ll wake up the whole county. These dogs ain’t just huntin’ sidekicks – they’re your trusted partners, leadin’ y’all on a wild escapade right through the heart of huntin’ country.

What is the best hog hunting dog?

Down here in Florida, where the hogs run wilder than Cousin Lisa at a yard sale, a good hog dog is worth its weight in gold. So, grab a sweet tea, kick off your boots, and let me spin ya a yarn about the top dog breeds for hog hunting.

Best Breeds

  • Pit Bull Terrier: First up is the American Pit Bull Terrier. This breed is as tough as nails and loyal as they come. Known for their courage and strength, these dogs ain’t afraid of tanglin’ with a hog. They’ve got the muscle to hold a hog at bay until you can get there. But remember, their bravery ain’t a substitute for proper trainin’ and handling.]
  • Black Mouth Cur: Next, we got the Black Mouth Cur. This dog is a huntin’ machine, born and bred for the wild. They’ve got a nose that could find a needle in a haystack and the tenacity of a bulldog. Black Mouth Curs are great at trackin’ and bayin’ hogs, keepin’ them in place without goin’ in for the kill.
  • Catahoula Leopard Dog: Then there’s the Catahoula Leopard Dog, a true Southern gem. They’re as energetic as a squirrel durin’ nut season. Catahoulas are excellent at bayin’, which means they corner the hog and keep it there with their bark and agility, givin’ you time to catch up.
  • Mountain Cur: Don’t overlook the Mountain Cur. These dogs are versatile hunters, able to track, bay, and sometimes even catch a hog. They’re as rugged as an old pair of work boots and just as reliable.
  • Dogo Argentino: Last but not least, we have the Dogo Argentino. Originatin’ from Argentina, these dogs are as brave as they come. They’re big, strong, and have a heart as big as the Florida sky. They’re fearless when facin’ a hog, but they’re also known for being gentle with their human family.

Trainin’ and Safety

No matter the breed, trainin’ and safety are key. These dogs ain’t just pets; they’re partners. Train ’em right, treat ’em well, and always prioritize their safety, just like you would your huntin’ buddies.

So, there ya have it, folks – the best hog hunting dogs as per Ron’s Guide Service. Whether you’re a seasoned hunter or just gettin’ started, consider one of these breeds for your next hog huntin’ adventure. And remember, if you’re lookin’ to book a trip, give us a holler! We promise you an experience filled with excitement, laughter, and maybe a wild tale or two.

Now, if you’ll excuse me, I gotta go help Grandma Dean wrangle her new pit bull pup. That little rascal’s chewin’ on my favorite huntin’ boots again! Happy huntin’ y’all!

Can I bring my own hunting dogs or pets?

First off, we can’t allow you to bring your own hunting dogs along for the ride. We’ve got our own methods and procedures in place for these hunts, so we’d appreciate you leaving your furry friends at home.

But, when it comes to your other animal companions, like pets, we’re open to it, depending on their experience and behavior in the wild. Give us a ring, and we’ll have a friendly chat to work out the details. We’re here to make sure everyone has a fantastic time!

What if I shoot a dog?

Now, listen up and don’t go gettin’ all jittery ’bout hurtin’ them dogs when you’re out huntin’. Your trusty guide’s gonna take care of things so you can shoot without a worry and keep them dogs safe as a chicken in a coop.

Your guide’s got eagle eyes, you see. They ain’t gonna set you up for a shot unless it’s as clear as a crystal creek on a summer day. Ain’t no sense in sendin’ bullets flyin’ if it’s gonna put them dogs in harm’s way. We’re all ’bout huntin’ smart, not reckless.

Now, I gotta shoot you straight here – there’s a rare chance that them dogs might get a scratch or worse in the heat of the hunt. And if that does happen, well, there might be a bit of reckonin’ in the financial department. But hold yer horses, ’cause it’s hardly ever come to that. And when it has, it’s usually ’cause someone ain’t been listenin’ to their guide.

So, don’t let them worries tie you up in knots. Your guide’s got your back, and them dogs, too. We’re all in this together, huntin’ for the thrill of it. Just remember, shoot clear, and let’s keep them dogs waggin’ their tails and sniffin’ out them hogs safe and sound.

Can I hog hunt without dogs?

If you’re lookin’ to up your chances of nabbin’ them wild boars, bringin’ along some trusty ol’ hound dogs is the way to go. It’s like guaranteein’ yourself a front-row seat to the hog wranglin’ show. And let me tell ya, we’re talkin’ ’bout a classic huntin’ experience, the real deal, with a buggy and them dogs leadin’ the charge. That’s our bread and butter right there, folks.

But hang on a minute, ’cause even though we’re all ’bout them dogs and the whole shebang, there might be times when them dogs gotta sit one out. Special circumstances, you know? It’s like lettin’ a cowboy rest his boots after a long ride. Your guide, well, they’re gonna use their good judgment and decide whether it’s a dog day or not.

Now, we’re all ’bout caterin’ to y’all’s wishes too. If you’ve got a hankerin’ for somethin’ specific, don’t hold back. Let your guide in on your secrets, and we’ll do our darndest to make it happen. We’re talkin’ ’bout bringin’ your huntin’ dreams to life here, partner.

So, in a nutshell, bringin’ along them dogs is like bringin’ along Lady Luck herself. The whole buggy and hound setup, that’s our claim to fame, no doubt ’bout it. But remember, sometimes the dogs might need a break, and that’s up to your guide. And if you got any fancy preferences, spill the beans to your guide, and we’ll rustle up an adventure that’s tailor-made just for you.

What kind of dogs do you use for hunting?

Well, y’see, them huntin’ dogs we got out here ain’t just your regular ol’ hounds or bulldogs. No siree, they’s a mighty fine blend of both, mixin’ up the best of two worlds. And don’t ya forget, we also got them purebred redbones, them’s some top-notch critter trackers, I tell ya what.

Watch in awe as your guide skins your hog in minutes!

Gather ’round and prepare to be plumb amazed as your trusty guide works his magic. Your guide is a hog-skinnin’ wizard, and he’ll have that critter’s hide off quicker than a hiccup, right after you’ve wrapped up your hunt. It’s a sight to behold, I tell ya, like watchin’ a whizbang circus trick right there in the wild. And guess what? It’ll only set you back a cool $20 per hog, a steal if I do say so myself!

But hold onto yer britches, ’cause there’s more to it than meets the eye. If you’re the hands-on type, you can jump right in alongside the guide, roll up your sleeves, and get your hands dirty in the whole skinnin’ process. It’s a chance to learn the ropes from a true expert, right there in the thick of it, like a young ‘un watchin’ his grandpappy work his trade.

And don’t forget, if you’re lookin’ for a little extra flavor in your game, some of them guides are downright artists when it comes to cuttin’ meat. You just gotta give ’em a holler and ask, and they’ll fix you up with some prime cuts that’ll make your taste buds do a two-step.

Rifles and Bows and Spears, Oh My!


Have a blast—no kiddin'—usin' them rifles, shotguns, handguns, and heck, even them muzzleloaders!

Listen up, folks! If you’re lookin’ to hunt them wild boars, you better bring along a trusty rifle. Now, these critters ain’t no joke, so you wanna pack some serious firepower. A good ol’ .30-06 Springfield or a .308 Winchester oughta do the trick just fine. You see, them boars can be tough as leather, so you need a caliber that’ll knock ’em down proper.

Now, I reckon some folks might raise an eyebrow when they hear ’bout huntin’ boar with an AR-15, but let me tell ya, it’s a whole mess of fun! That lightweight, semi-auto shooter can sure put the hurt on them hogs, especially if you’re packin’ them .300 Blackout or 6.5 Grendel cartridges. Just make sure you’re a crack shot, ’cause them hogs ain’t just gonna stand there twiddlin’ their hooves.

Happy huntin’, y’all!

To Scope or Not to Scope

Well, howdy there, ya’ll! Let’s have us a chit-chat ’bout usin’ them scoped rifles when chasin’ them wild hogs with our trusty hound dogs. Now, listen up good ’cause there’s pros and cons to it all.

On the bright side, them scopes can turn a good ol’ hunt into a downright precision operation. You spot them hogs from a country mile away and line up your shot just right. Ain’t no doubt, it’s like pickin’ off cans from a fencepost.

But, hold yer horses, there’s some downsides too. See, scopes can make ya a bit one-track-minded. You’re so focused on that crosshair, you might miss some action happenin’ to the left or right. And when them dogs are runnin’ all over the place, you could end up shootin’ at the wrong critter, or worse, one of them faithful pooches.

So, in the end, it’s a bit of a give and take, like most things in life. You wanna make sure that scope don’t turn ya into a tunnel-visioned sharpshooter, ignorin’ all them other factors in the hunt. Keep your eyes peeled, stay sharp, and whether you’re scope-totin’ or not, remember, it’s all ’bout that thrill of the chase out there in the wild.

Average Rifle Shot Distance

Well, now ain’t that a question for the ages? You see, when it comes to shootin’ them boars with a good ol’ rifle, the distance can vary like a hog’s appetite at a buffet.

Sometimes you’re creepin’ through them woods, and bam! There’s a boar snortin’ and rootin’ just a stone’s throw away. Other times, you might have to take a shot that feels like you’re slingin’ lead across a whole county.

But I reckon if you wanna talk averages, I’d say most folks tend to get up close and personal with them boars. Maybe ’bout 50 to 100 yards, give or take a little. But hey, ain’t no hard and fast rule. It’s more ’bout knowin’ your rifle, readin’ the lay of the land, and trustin’ your gut.

So there ya have it, partner. When it comes to shootin’ them boars, the distance ain’t set in stone, but the thrill of the hunt sure is!

Popular Rifle Calibers

Howdy, y’all! Now, let me tell ya ’bout huntin’ them wild boars with a shotgun and a good pack of hound dogs. It’s like a good old Southern symphony, I tell ya!

When you’re out there with them dogs, you wanna make sure your shotgun’s singin’ the right tune. Opt for a 12 gauge or a 20 gauge – them’s the go-to calibers for this dance. Load up with some heavy buckshot or slugs, and you’ll be ready to square dance with them boars.

See, them hound dogs, they’re the real heroes here. They’ll sniff out them boars and set the stage for you. And when they got ’em cornered, that’s when your shotgun takes center stage. Buckshot’s like a scattergun serenade up close, while slugs are like a ballad for the long shots.

But let me give you a piece of advice – when them dogs are workin’ hard, you better be ready to two-step quick. Them boars ain’t gonna wait around for no slowpoke, that’s for sure!

So there you have it, folks. Huntin’ wild boars with a shotgun and some faithful hound dogs is like a true Southern soirée. Just remember, keep your shotgun loaded, your dogs by your side, and get ready to waltz with them wild critters out there in them woods!

Average Shotgun Shot Distance

Well, darlin’, I ain’t gonna doll up the truth ’bout hog huntin’ with a knife for ya.

I get a heap of folks askin’ ’bout it, like they’re headin’ to a barn dance. Thinkin’ it’s all “hoop-de-doo” and “yeehaw,” like tryin’ out a new flavor down at the ice cream shack.

But let me tell ya, pig stickin’ ain’t no walk in the daisies—unless them daisies are hog chow, and you’re the main course.

I’ve stuck more hogs than you can shake a stick at, and let me tell ya, it’s a thrill alright, but it’s a full-on commitment.

Now, close your eyes and imagine this with me…

You reckon you’re just gonna mosey on up to a wild boar, give it a poke with your trusty knife, and bam, that’s the end of it?

And here’s the kicker—let’s say by some hog-wranglin’ miracle, you do manage to make a good, deadly jab through that tough hide and ‘tween them bones. Well, guess what? There’s no shockwave of impact, no snappin’ of the hog’s nervous system.

So that feisty boar’s still got a solid 20 seconds of fun lined up, tryin’ its darndest to take you along on a one-way ride to the afterlife.

So, before you go dippin’ your toe in the hog-huntin’ waters, remember this ain’t no picnic. It’s a wild ride, and you best be ready to hold on tight, sugar.

Well, now, if I ain’t spooked you off yet and you’re still keen on usin’ a knife, lemme lay out a couple of them common scenarios for how this hog huntin’ dance unfolds.

we’ll be ridin’ alongside them dogs on a swamp buggy. When them pups sniff out them pigs, they’re gonna start hollerin’ like a pack of banshees.

Soon as they sniff out them pigs, they’ll start hollerin’ like there’s no tomorrow.

You and your guide are gonna hop off that buggy and sneak in closer to where the real action’s at.

Them dogs, they’re gonna have that boar cornered, usually by hangin’ onto its ears like they’re hitchin’ a ride.

Here’s where you come in. You’re gonna hightail it in from the backside of that hog, grab hold of a leg or two, give it a good flip onto its back, exposin’ its soft underbelly so you can give it a proper stab.

Now, sometimes the terrain ain’t gonna be all sunshine and daisies, or that boar’s gonna be tougher than a two-dollar steak. In them cases, you’re gonna charge in from above and give that hog a good stab to weaken it up before you wrangle it over and finish the job.

Now, hold on tight ’cause there’s another twist. Some of our four-legged helpers are trained to flush out them hogs from the bushes, not give ’em a bear hug.

In this kinda showdown, you’re gonna wait for that hog to come a-chargin’ or keep it busy with the dogs yappin’ away. Then, you’ll stare that hog down face-to-face, give it a good shove to the ground, and let that blade do the talkin’.

So there ya have it, a sneak peek into how this whole hog-huntin’ hoedown goes. You ready to give it a whirl?


Embrace your primal roots using a spear to hunt hogs—the oldest hunting method recorded!

Y’all reckon it’s time for a little trip down memory lane to them good ol’ days when folks were usin’ spears to go after them wild boars? Back in the ancient times, way before all them fancy gadgets, people were gettin’ their hands dirty, huntin’ down them tough-as-nails boars with nothin’ but a trusty spear.

Think ’bout them ancient Greeks and Romans – they left their mark on history showin’ off their boar wranglin’ on pottery and fancy art. Adonis, a Greek hero, was like a spear-slingin’ superstar, always seen mixin’ it up with them boars. And them Romans, they took a likin’ to the Greek style and started holdin’ these big shindigs called “hunts of Venus” to honor their goddess of love and war, all while goin’ after boars like there was no tomorrow.

Jumpin’ over to them samurai over in Japan, them fellas had their own brand of boar wranglin’ goin’ on. They called it “yabaigari,” and it was all about showin’ off their warrior spirit by jabbin’ spears at boars. It’s like a southern hog hunt, just with a bit more history and some fancy Japanese words thrown in.

You ain’t out there tryin’ to skewer a whale, after all.

And let’s talk ’bout the material – you want a blade that’s sturdy and sharp as a whittlin’ knife. Stainless steel or some good high-carbon steel should do the trick. You don’t wanna be strugglin’ with a blade that’s duller than a butter knife when you’re facin’ down a wild hog.

Fair Chase, High Fence, Free-Range, Canned & Other Hogwash...

You’re the judge of what’s fair chase, high fence, free-range, canned, and whatnot, based on yer own hunting ethics.

Makin’ sure you’re clear on these terms will guarantee that when you look back on your hunt, it’s all ’bout the thrill, not no mix-up ’cause folks got different ideas ’bout what’s what.

Here at Ron’s Guide Service, we’re givin’ y’all the lowdown on our own experiences.

So, if y’all wanna figure out if we’re the right guide service for ya, take a moment to school yerself on these here topics.

What is a fair chase hunt?

Well, let me break it down for y’all about this fair chase business in huntin’. Imagine it’s like playin’ a game where both sides got a fair shot. It’s all ’bout bein’ ethical and givin’ them big critters a fightin’ chance.

Now, here’s the backstory: there’s this old club, the Boone and Crockett Club, they’re like them fancy referees of the huntin’ world. It’s an organization named after some old-timey explorers and hunters, Daniel Boone and Davy Crockett. These fellas made their mark back in the day, and folks nowadays look to the Boone and Crockett Club for rules and guidelines ’bout ethical huntin’ and keepin’ track of them big ol’ critters folks bag out in the wild. So, when it comes to huntin’ fair and square, you might just hear their name thrown ’round.

According to these club folks, fair chase huntin’ is when you go after these free-range critters in a way that don’t stack the deck in your favor. It’s like a friendly competition, where you’re respectin’ the critter’s natural instincts.

In simpler words, it’s givin’ the critters a square deal, lettin’ ’em have a fair shot at escapin’ and defendin’ themselves. And let’s talk rules – fair chase hunters stick to some basics:

  • First off, follow them laws and rules, no monkey business.
  • When you’re in someone else’s neck of the woods, act nice and respect their ways.
  • Stick to a personal code that brings out the best in ya as a hunter.
  • Don’t mess around when it comes to makin’ the kill – do it swift and clean.
  • Keep that code in your noggin’ and let it guide your actions. It’s on you to do right by the critters and the land.

Now, when it comes to what’s a no-go in fair chase, here’s the rundown:

  • No usin’ planes to spot critters and then swoop in like a hawk.
  • No chasin’ critters with motorized contraptions.
  • No high-tech gadgets, like them fancy communication gizmos.
  • No huntin’ critters that ain’t got a fair shot, like them trapped behind fences or drugged up.
  • No huntin’ critters that’s in a bad spot, like swimmin’, snow-trapped, or helpless.
  • No stealin’ someone else’s huntin’ license. And of course, no breakin’ them laws and rules.

Now, fair chase ain’t just a rulebook, it’s a way of life for hunters who aim to be fair and respectful. And remember, if you’re huntin’ fair, you’re givin’ them critters a fair shake, and that’s the way it oughta be.

Is your hog hunt fair chase?

Alright now, let me break it down for ya. Out here, our huntin’ style’s a bit different – we’re rollin’ ’round in a swamp buggy. But I reckon there’s some folks out there, like them Boone and Crockett folks, who reckon that chasin’ critters with a motorized contraption ain’t exactly the fairest way to go ’bout it. They’re talkin’ ’bout ethics, you see.

And that ain’t all – we’ve got some trusty hound dogs on our side too. Now, some folks might say that’s takin’ things up a notch and givin’ us an upper hand over them hogs. They’re ponderin’ if it’s playin’ fair, if you catch my drift.

Now, let’s get real honest for a minute. Depending on your own code of huntin’ ethics, you might give our way of doin’ things a thumbs-up or a side-eye. It’s like decidin’ if grandma’s sweet tea recipe needs a pinch more sugar or not – it’s all about what feels right to you.

So, partner, whether our huntin’ style lines up with your sense of fair chase or not, that’s somethin’ you’ll have to chew on and reckon with. Huntin’ ain’t just ’bout baggin’ critters; it’s a mix of tradition, personal beliefs, and the thrill of the chase.

What is a high fence hunt?

Now, picture this: you got yourself a good-sized piece of land, and you’re thinkin’ about huntin’ on it. But here’s the twist – you put up a big ol’ fence all ’round that land, tall enough to keep them critters inside.

So, what’s the fuss all about, you might ask? Well, let me tell ya, it’s like creatin’ your very own huntin’ haven. Them fences, they create a boundary, keepin’ them animals from wanderin’ off and lettin’ you know exactly where the huntin’ playground is.

It’s a bit like creatin’ your own wildlife preserve, where you can manage the critter population, give ’em room to roam, and have a more controlled huntin’ experience. You might find all sorts of game, from deer to turkey, all within them fence lines.

Now, don’t go thinkin’ it’s like shootin’ fish in a barrel, ’cause them critters still got their wits about ’em. But it does change the game a bit. You’re huntin’ in a more confined space, but it’s still got that thrill of trackin’ and makin’ that perfect shot.

High fenced places ain’t all cut from the same cloth.

First off, not all them high fences are for makin’ money – some are just folks’ private huntin’ spots.

Some of these spots are small, while others got more room to roam.

There’s them with plenty of bushes and trees for critters to hide, and then there’s them wide-open ones where critters ain’t got as many hidin’ spots.

You might find places where they pack critters in close so you’re sure to spot somethin’, while others let nature decide how many critters hang around.

Some places tinker with makin’ critters big and pretty for braggin’ rights, while others let ’em be as wild as the wind.

And remember, this ain’t no one-size-fits-all kinda deal. How we hunt and where we do it, well, that’s our own call.

So, when it comes to huntin’ behind a fence, it’s a matter of what you reckon is fair game. Some say it’s all fine and dandy, others say it ain’t real huntin’. At the end of the day, it’s your choice, and ain’t no one else’s business what you believe.

Can fences contain wild hogs?

Now, let me break it down for y’all in plain and simple talk. Them wild hogs, well, they’re like a whirlwind of trouble when it comes to them net wire fences we use to keep cattle, deer, and goats in check.

See, them hogs, they don’t just give a gentle nudge to fences – no siree, they tear through ’em like a tornado through a trailer park. And here’s the kicker, they’re clever critters too – they figure out how to lift them fences right off the ground, like they’re openin’ up their own front door.

Wild hogs can jump over fences shorter than a three-foot tall stump – reckon they didn’t get the memo that pigs ain’t supposed to fly!

So, listen up, ’cause here’s the secret sauce to keepin’ them wild hogs outta your property: you gotta go heavy-duty. Chain link fences or them hog wires made of thick stuff – they’re the real deal. And don’t forget, you gotta bury that fence at least a foot down in the ground if you wanna stand a chance against them hogs diggin’ their way in. And if you’re lookin’ for an electrifyin’ solution, electric fencin’ might just do the trick.

So, when it comes to wild hogs, remember, they’re like a bull in a china shop when it comes to regular fences. You gotta bring out the big guns – the heavy-duty chains or the hog wires – if you wanna keep ’em out and protect your property.

Do your properties have fences?

Well, gather ’round y’all, ’cause I’m fixin’ to lay down some Florida property law knowledge for ya. ‘Round these parts, Florida’s what they call a “closed range” state, and let me tell ya, they take trespassin’ critters mighty serious.

Now, them huntin’ spots we’re talkin’ ’bout? They’re smack dab in the middle of workin’ cattle ranches, where cows roam free. Them Florida folks, they hold the property owners to a tight leash when it comes to them cattle roamin’ where they shouldn’t be.

So here’s the thing – them landowners, they could find themselves in a bit of a pickle if one of them cows decides to take a stroll down a public road. And that means you might come across some fences or gates here and there. It’s all about keepin’ them cattle on the straight and narrow, you see.

Now, don’t go thinkin’ these fences or gates are there to hold in them wild hogs. Nope, them critters are like slippery eels, and they ain’t fazed by no ordinary fence.

But let’s get real for a minute. If the idea of catchin’ a glimpse of wire fencin’ or rollin’ through a gate like you’re movin’ cattle ain’t your cup of sweet tea, well then, our kinda adventure might not be your flavor.

What is a free-range hunt?

A free-range hunt, well, that means them critters ain’t penned up by no fancy human-made walls. They’re out there, doin’ their thing, wanderin’ wherever they please, like a breeze in the open field.

But now, lemme give ya the straight goods. If you’re out lookin’ for a piece of huntin’ land in these United States that’s as wide open as the prairie sky, well, you’re in for a wild goose chase ’cause, honey, that kinda place just ain’t real.

Y’see, every huntin’ patch, no matter how wild it might seem, got itself some sorta man-made barriers. It might be a park boundary, a neighbor’s fence, or somethin’ keepin’ ’em critters away from them public roads.

So, here’s the real question, the one you oughta be askin’ yourself: How big does that huntin’ patch need to be to tick the “free-range” box for you?

So, partner, next time you’re thinkin’ ’bout huntin’ free-range, just remember, it’s more about the spirit of the hunt than them fences. And as for them huntin’ spots without any barriers at all, well, that’s like searchin’ for a needle in a haystack. Best to set your sights on the hunt itself and let them fences be what they are – part of the landscape.

What is a canned hunt?

Well, gather ’round, folks, ’cause I’m about to break down a notion that’s been stirrin’ up quite the commotion – canned huntin’. Now, what’s that, you ask? It’s when folks go out to these game ranches, where animals are practically raised like prize pumpkins, ’til they’re grown enough to be taken down, mostly for showin’ off.

Now, reckon there’s a whole mess of hunters out there, tryin’ to sort out whether a hunt’s been canned or not. They’re lookin’ at how tough it was, the kinda land it happened on, the way they went about it, and a whole heap of other things.

But let me tell ya, it’s a debate hotter than a jalapeno pepper. It all boils down to each fella’s personal thoughts. If that guide’s promisin’ y’all the moon and stars, guaranteein’ you’ll bag a critter without breakin’ a sweat, well, that’s when some folks start hollerin’. See, they’re sayin’ that ain’t no real hunt – it’s more like a fancy shootin’ gallery.

Now, imagine this here scenario: a hunter skippin’ out on a real-deal wilderness hunt, tradin’ it for a guaranteed quick draw and kill. Now, where’s that line between huntin’ and just plain shootin’? It’s like tryin’ to tell the difference between a wild stallion and a ridin’ pony – ain’t always so clear.

Truth is, this whole canned huntin’ business is like a rowdy bar brawl of opinions. Each fella’s got his own take on it, dependin’ on how he sees things. So, y’all, remember this: canned huntin’ – it’s a like a three-legged pig, tough to pin down and even tougher to agree on.

Is your hog hunt canned?

Now, let me lay it out plain and simple for y’all. We ain’t in the business of breedin’ critters in cages, nosiree. Them hogs you’ll find on our land? Well, they’re like them wanderin’ vagabonds, just strollin’ in without an invite, causin’ a ruckus with our plants and livestock.

Our guides, bless their hearts, they’re out there before the rooster crows, scoutin’ out them hog trails and signs like it’s their second nature. And they ain’t alone – they got some trusty hounds by their side, sniffin’ out them hogs quicker than a hiccup.

Now, let me tell ya, our hunts, they ain’t like shootin’ fish in a barrel just ’cause they’re guided. We got ourselves a swamp buggy and them dogs, sure enough, but that don’t mean baggin’ a hog’s a done deal. It’s about skill, precision, and bein’ at the right place at the right time.

Now, picture this: a fella who’s got his heart set on takin’ somethin’ down. But here’s the twist – he won’t settle for a buggy hunt with dogs ’cause he thinks it’s a cakewalk. And yet, he turns his nose up at a treestand or blind hunt ’cause, well, it ain’t a sure thing. Now, ain’t that a head-scratcher?

Let me tell ya, partner, that kinda hunter, well, he’s like a cat on a hot tin roof. Hard to please, harder than a hickory stump. But you know what? We’re here to give him a real huntin’ experience, whatever his fancy. It’s a tall order, but heck, we’re up to the challenge. Y’all come on down and let’s see if we can’t wrangle up some excitement – no matter how picky a hunter might be!

About trophy hogs...

Them dang outfitters, they got this hog-sortin’ business, callin’ ’em “meat hogs” and “trophy boars.”

Now, let me tell ya, them feral hogs ain’t no game critters, they’re listed as some outlaw four-legged troublemakers, so there ain’t no official badge of honor for a trophy boar.

So, what in tarnation makes a hog a fancy “trophy,” ya reckon?

Well, most them hunters yammer on about a trophy boar sportin’ tusks pokin’ out two to four inches past its lip, or they blabber ’bout meat hogs falling in a certain chunk of weight.

Some folks plunk down big bucks, hundreds of ’em, for a surefire trophy boar hunt. They haul in a caught trophy boar and plunk it in some fenced-off spot for a hunter to give it the boot.

Now, let me tell ya ’bout our $275 wild hog hunt at Ron’s Guide Service. We don’t promise no certain size, sex, or color of them wild hogs, and we surely can’t guarantee tusks.

We ain’t got no trophy fees either. If you knock down a hog and find them tusks, ain’t no extra fees sneakin’ up on ya.

We believe that “trophy” label is slapped on by the feller who pulls the trigger, and to heck with anyone who argues it!

Shoot, there’s a heap of things that can make a trophy. Could be a savvy ol’ sow who’s been outwittin’ ya hunt after hunt, and when you finally bag her, that’s a real dandy “trophy”—your own personal win.

Even that first kill, it could be a trophy for a new hunter, no matter if it’s a him or a her, big or small, or got tusks stickin’ out.

Some folks might only hunt once or twice a year and reckon any kill’s a real feat.

"That first elk of mine, he's my prized trophy, no two ways 'bout it, even if he ain't no showstopper to most folks—he's the cat's pajamas to me. I've taken down bigger and grander critters, but none of 'em gave me more glee than that first bull elk. It took me years of sweat and grit to make that hunt come true.

"Trophy," well, that's a word you get to slap on whatever you dang well please.
