Hello all! I just registered and I'm new here, so if I repeat something someone has recently asked, cut me some slack.
I'm fairly new to hog hunting. I've been on a couple hunts, got a couple hogs and I'm addicted! I can't seem to get enough information, see enough photos, or stop daydreaming about another hunt.
Unfortunately, I live where hogs ain't got to....yet. So, I'm dependant on you good people to enlighten me. Got me some questions, so please, boar with me.
For instance, anyone here pig hunt with a crossbow? If you do, what kind do you use and how effective are they on hogs?
How hard is it to find a farmer or rancher that will let a guy hog hunt in your neck of the woods?

Thanks in advance
