I am new to the area and was wondering about hog hunting. Are there any hogs in the Perdido River WMA? Are there many deer up there. I live near Lillian and wouldn't mind doing a little hunting. Lived my whole life in Nebraska and the only pigs we had up there were in pens. Working near Phoenix right now but will be home in a week. Appreciate any info!!:usaflag Steve

We used to have some land leased in there for years we killed tons of deer not any big ones the body sizes were always kind of small.I don't know how bad they have hurt it since it has gone public ,but I would definately give it a try.Oh yeah unless things have changed there was not any hogs on it last time i hunted it.If you are looking for hogs you need to hunt one of the delta properties. (upper or lower)Hope this helps a little.

They are about 50 miles west. Look atthe outdooralabama.com web site, click on hunting and then click on management areas.You should be able to find maps andhunt dates along with directions. You'll probably need a small boat and motor to hunt most of the areas in the delta.

There are a few pigs in the area, but for most of the season you can only hunt the area with a quota permit, and those are hard to come by. Might want to check the FWC site first.

There are hogs in Bluewatercreek Management area also. I'm not sure if there are any permits left. They only give out 400 per season. Eglin is another option. I have found the most pigs in Eglin on the far Eastern side West of Hyway 285 and on range road 211 around the Titi creek area above Jr Walton pond. There are game Bioligist who are more than happy to help you at Eglin. Good luck!

Thanks Whipper Snapper. If I can hunt in Perdido WMA there should be pigs there. That is on the Bama side just south of barrineau park.I will take a ride up there when I get back next week and scope it out. I just need to get out in the woods.
