Default FL Hog Population

So, I have been hearing on the news and from a few fellow hunters here in FL that they are seeing unreal amounts of hogs (from ocachobee to lakeland).

Anyone else confirm this. I have been out three times in the last 5 weeks and I'm not seeing much @ all. Spots that produced great around this time have hardly been rut'd up , not much in the way of scat, hell hardly any trails.

From what I am seeing hog pop is down (or maybe me and my friends killed to many in the last year).


Anyways, just curious what other FL hog hunters are seeing resently.

I want to do some pistol muzzle loading or bow hunting for pigs in FL. What's the season in FL? Licence cost for out-of-staters?

Sounds like I need to pay Florida a visit...hogs here in Ca. are hard to find right now due to really dry weather, and terrain...
