Default Anyone ever hunted hogs in the Mobile delta?

Ok I have never hunted hogs and would love to start learning about it. I have a couple questions. What is the best time of the year to hunt them? Is the Mobile delta a good place? Would it be best to hunt from jon boat or walking? Any specific tactics to use? I have been told that if you take a boat up into the delta and plant some deer corn/old fruit in some wet ground near the water line the hogs will be there the next day going crazy. Has anyone hunted up in there before? I would love to go if you have and can help pay for whatever.

Definitely best to go by boat. Lots of hogs but they can disappear with pressure. I never did anything fancy. Scouted til I found good sign, then stalked the area. Killed lots of hogs this way.

Oh come on now haha. We all know different. If you ever need someone to tag along and help out just holler. I'm 20 years old so I can do the dirty work if necessary, just looking to learn from someone that knows what they're doing!

I deer/hog hunt the delta and love it. Rule number one is to KNOW the rules. You can hog hunt any time of year AS LONG AS THERE IS AN OPEN SEASONS FOR ANY OTHER ANIMAL. In the upper delta you can only use weapons approved for those hunts, for example, if squirrell season is open you can hog hunt with any gun approved for squirrels which means a 22. In the lower delta you can use any gun/ammo combination as long as something is in seas, for example, squirrell season opens and I will smoke some pigs with the .270.

It is hard to say whether you should hunt from boat or land, depends what you want to do. The lower delta is more accessible by boat, there are one or two spots I know of that you could walk in and MAYBE see a hog but having a boat allows you to go find them instead of waiting for them to come to you. The upper delta has a lot of property that you can access by motorized vehicle and there are a lot of pigs up there. I normally go there on the weekends to practice at the range and we take a tour of the property to see how things are coming along. Been seeing a lot of pigs, pig sign, deer and SNAKES.

Pigs are pretty stupid but don't understimate their sense of smell. Most of the time you can hear them before you see them and it is fairly easy to walk up on them. They travel up and down the rivers and it is easy to spot where they are. Do NOT plant corn/bait unless you are willing to pay the price if you get caught. My personal opinion is that there are way too many hogs in the delta to need to bait them. Hope this helps, feel free to post here or shoot me a PM if you have any questions. You should be able to kill them starting Oct 1 and I am sure I can make room for you on the boat to show you the ropes. Someone took the time to share his years of swamp hunting with me and I suppose it's just good karma to pass that on.
