Hunting Hogs at Night

According to Michael Wersig, “one of the coolest things about pig hunting is you don’t have to do it in the daytime.” In this clip, Michael has been watching the trail cams and seeing lots of action by the feeders. As night begins to approach, he and Kevin hit the fields with a Smith & Wesson M&P® 15 to see what they can stalk up on, and they certainly aren’t disappointed! Later in the evening, he decides to head out again with little daylight left and turns on the Exude OD25 Tactical Predator Gun Light mounted atop his modern sporting rifle to give himself an upper hand by being able to shine a light on where the hogs may be hiding!

Hog Hunting with Conquest Scents

When it comes to hog hunting, you have to think about how you’re going to get the upper hand and give yourself every advantage possible against these frustratingly clever critters. Feral hogs have an incredibly keen sense of smell, and are believed to be capable of smelling odors up to seven miles away! The good news for hunters is that ConQuest Scents has developed several hog scents that mask and overwhelm the scent of humans by creating an area that mimics natural hog scents. We’ll see these ConQuest scents in action when we join Doug Roberts on a crossbow hunt as he uses ConQuest Scents to his benefit.

Hog Hunting With Modern Sporting Rifles

Modern Sporting Rifles have become very popular for hog hunting. On top of being just plain fun and exciting to shoot, modern sporting rifles give you an edge when it comes to eradication efforts. In this clip, we’ll join a couple of fun outings we had while using modern sporting rifles to bring down multiple hogs!

The Down n’ Dirty of Hog Hunting

As an invasive species, feral hogs are the bane of native animals, hunters, land owners, and ranchers alike, and we’ll take a look at all the various ways you can hunt them, while having a lot of fun along the way!   Many people look at hog hunting as a way to help eradicate the over population of feral hogs, most of which have caused significant damage to the environment. Another great aspect of hog hunting is that they can be hunted 365 days a year, day or night. This open season on hogs gives hunters a wide variety of means and methods to enjoy hog hunting, from compound bows to crossbows, handguns, airguns, traditional bolt action rifles, to modern sporting rifles! One of the most important things to do before hitting the field is to check your local state hunting guidelines to ensure you’re operating within legal bounds. As Wade will tell us, “the bottom line on hog hunting is get out, learn their habits, learn what they do, and whether you’re just trying to shoot a small one to put in the smoker, or a you’re trying to shoot a big boar to mount on the wall, you’re going to enjoy a hog hunt.”

Expand Your Horizons with Handgun Hunting

Handgun hunting is a totally different way of hunting it. As far as what you do as the hunter you still have to hunt the same way you would with a bow, crossbow, rifle, or whatever it may be. You’re still trying to get as close as you possibly can and make his most ethical shots that you can.

Create Man-Made Food Plots with Protein

There’s only so much that the native land can provide, so it’s about providing a supplemental food source. To do that we create man-made food plots with protein. We use free choice protein feeders that a deer can come at any time during the week filled with protein from Record Rack.

The Ways You Can Upgrade Your Handgun

When it comes to customizing any type of firearm there’s always going to be options. The factory set ups a lot of times are more than fine for a lot of situations. But if you want to maximize the performance, you can add some things to your firearm. Smith & Wesson for instance has the Performance Center where you can have your triggers be a little crisper, or have a little less poundage for the pull, and so many other options. Smith and Wesson’s are going to be hard to beat the factory shields and Model 629 classics that are out there. But one thing we definitely like to do with about every firearm we get, is upgrade our sights to HIVIZ sights and it’s very easy to do for the majority of the models!

Where Should I Set Up a Deer Stand?

Setting up deer stands and pop-ups, is one of our favorite things to do on our property (besides hunting out of them). In this video Wade discusses what goes through his mind when it comes to picking an area to put up a deer stand be it a ladder stand, pop up blind, etc. Where’s the wind coming from? How many people are going to hunt this area? What happens when the leaves die off in the winter? All these questions and more are answered in the video above.
