Locations

Make hog hunting in Florida a vacation tradition! Our wild hog hunting is only a short drive from popular Florida destinations such as Orlando, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Tampa, and the Walt Disney World Resort.

Why Hunt with Us

Family owned and operated Since 1985, Ron’s Guide Service is the top choice among hunters new and old when it comes to planning an exciting wild boar hunting experience, commonly known as “hog hunting” or “pig hunting.”

Guaranteed Success

You will see hogs! With our skilled guides, trained boar dogs, and private lands teeming with wild pigs we have a 99% success rate and guarantee you will see and have the opportunity to hunt wild boar.

Quality Assurance

Feel safe! We work only with properties and guides that are friendly, reputable, and meet our quality standards. We pre-vet them all to make sure you always have an exceptional experience.

No Hidden Fees

Our transparent pricing lets you know what’s included in your experience—and what isn’t. When it comes to the outdoors there are enough surprises creeping up on you—hidden fees shouldn’t be one of them!

Two Exciting Styles

Choose from daytime or nighttime swamp buggy hunt with dogs—all for one low price! There’s no better fun than hog hunting in Florida with dogs!

Daytime Swamp Buggy with Dogs

Climb aboard an open-air swamp vehicle and hang on tight as you take off on a fully guided hog hunting experience in the bright sunshine. Listen for the excitement of your hunting dogs—yelping with delight—it means they found a hog!

Nighttime Swamp Buggy with Dogs

Cruise through complete darkness on this fully guided challenging nighttime hog hunting experience. Only for experienced hunters that are physically fit, have great eyesight, and are capable of spearing or knifing a wild hog.

Endless Weapon Choices

Rifles, and bows, and spears, OH MY! All perfect for wild boar hunting!

Firearms

Grab your gun—or borrow ours! From shotguns to rifles, there’s more than one way to kill a hog. You can even use multiple firearms—just like Lara Croft! Most shots are in the 50 to 75-yard range.

Bow

Enjoy bow hunting hogs with complimentary kill retrieval. We Recommend longbows, compound bows, recurve bows, and crossbows with a minimum draw weight of 35 pounds.

Spear

Connect with your tribal roots and hunt as your ancestors once did on hunting hogs with a spear. Ron’s Guide Service is one of the few outfitters to offer this unique hunting style. Don’t have a spear?—borrow ours for free!

Knife

Feel your adrenaline rush and heart pound as you get up close and personal with a wild hog on our fully guided knife hunt. Wild boar hunting with a knife is only recommended for experienced hunters and those with a lust for blood.

No Trophy Fees

Many outfitters separate hogs into two price groups. “meat hogs” and “trophy boar.” In the event we discover your hog has tusks after you kill it, you will not be charged additional fees. Hunters can spend hundreds of dollars for a guaranteed “trophy” wild boar hunt which usually consists of placing an already captured boar with tusks into a field.

Most hunters say a qualified “trophy boar” has tusks that measure from two to four inches beyond the lower lip line. Currently, there is no official way to rank “trophy boar.” We do not guarantee a certain size, sex, or color of a wild hog—or if it will have tusks.

Attention picky hunters…
We try to allow some discretion when it comes to not hunting the first hog you see—however, we cannot keep passing on hogs because you want a hog that is a specific size, sex, color, or has tusks. If you are concerned about size—we do not allow hunting of small hogs which are less than 15 inches high at the shoulder. Most of our kills run in the 90 to 175-pound range.

The Best Properties

We conduct our wild boar hunting experiences on active cattle ranches in Okeechobee, Lakeport, Lorida, and Venus, Florida. These private properties range from 2,000 to 4,000 acres. Due to the size of these properties our guides pre-scout for high hog activity prior to your arrival.

Into the Wild

Hog hunting in Florida vs. other parts of the world offers unique terrain such as farmlands, open prairies, and palmetto thickets—which are prime wild hog habitat. The wild hogs you will hunt are derelict trespass animals.

No High Fences

Boar do a great deal of damage to net wire fences generally used to confine cattle, deer, and goats. Hogs tear through fences and can lift them off the ground to gain access. Boar can also jump over fences less than 3 feet high—pigs fly! Chain link fences or heavy-gauge hog wire buried at least 12 inches under the ground with heavy supports and posts, and various types of mesh or multi-stranded electric fencing are the only way to prevent hogs from coming onto the property—which we do not have.

According to Florida property law, Florida is a “closed range” state with strict liability for trespassing livestock. We hunt on active cattle ranches, and property owners may be civilly or criminally liable for animals that stray onto public roadsso you may see fences or gates. These fences or gates are not capable of containing wild hogs. While Ron’s Guide Service understands the need for a wild experience—the idea of hunting in an open area without any fencing is legally not possible—so please be realistic when it comes to your belief of what “wild” is.

There's never been a better time to go hog hunting in Florida!

Population
The state is estimated to have about 500,000 wild pigs in a relatively stable population. Some of the highest population densities can be found north and west of Lake Okeechobee.

Breeding Habits
In Florida, wild hogs breed year-round with peaks in the spring and fall. Most hogs begin breeding at one year old. Females can produce two litters per year with each producing one to 13 piglets (usually five to seven per litter), given that math, it is easy to see why they can become a problem quickly. Hog hunting in Florida is a favorite activity year-round at Ron’s Guide Service.
