    Wild boar tips

    I want to share some wild boar info with the members here

    the first thing I always tell people, Boars almost always keep traveling the direction they are going very rarely they turn and go in opposite direction if they are going north and you are coming on them going south you will need to turn and head them off ambush style ( get ahead of them and plan the attack) I cannot answer why they travel the way they do, if you get in front of one or one charges you either side step them by 3' , hurdle them( the least safest) or jump on the side of the tree you need atleast 3' MIN CLEARENCE up down or sideways . Hogs will almost always charge or try and OR go around you but like i stated ! very rarely they will turn and run where they came from think of pigs in a hog lot ,wild boars react the same way BUT MORE VIOLENTLY, THEY ARE DANGEROUS!!!!!


    I ALWAYS recommend hunting them on atv's , horses etc etc

    unless you have dogs they will be hard to locate but with time and patience you can find them in the right places there is one trick to baiting these hogs get dried field corn and soak it in fuel oil I have no idea why hogs love fuel oil but they cannot leave it alone


    In Ohio the best place is wayne national forest more specifically between New Straightsville and Nelsonville


    keep in mind when hunting wayne national forest you cannot take your transportation off the trails this law makes it even more challenging

    IF anyone is interested in hunting let me know I am trying to get groups together for regular hunting


    hope this helps some and gets a few people interested

    I'd be interested in going at some point, but I don't have an atv or horse.

    once you start to locate the trees then look for small wallows the wallow in the photo above is extreme for ohio, what you will find is more like this

    you come across a large amount of droppings in one area, you can be pretty confident that you are very close to a major feeding area. Look around and get a good idea of what they are eating and where the best place may be to setup. Below is a picture of some old droppings. Notice the grey appearance. Newer droppings will be much darker and have an unmistakble odor that can be smelled by a hunter from a good distance.

    also notice the black muck color on the vegetation

    Glad to share and to be honest it's probably the only topic I can share here as I am inexperienced with bow hunting in general but thought i would give bowhunting a try , I have been around plenty of friends and family over the years who shot bow I just never did it 38 years old and a rookie I'm sure i have some hurdles to jump...lol


    my bow is on the fed ex truck as we speak :thumbs:
