Public land. It's $48 for the hunting license, and then some more money for the APH (not sure which public lands, if not all, require it so check into that). Then, it's just gas to get out there.
A hog is nothing more than a bullet receptacle.

cheers Having hunting withdrawls here... As pappy once said: Don't do no good ta complain seen several threads were people getting out of hunting... Thinking of starting a support group, High Price of Hunting ... The $48.00 WMA permit cheapest way ta go... The 24-7-365 hunting presure on surounding privet land can make them a hot spot... OSBWMA been my ta-go-to place... Check out public hunting land lower in forum... Beat wishes flag

Nothing like the feeling of harvesting game on public land. The swampy back waters of many lakes are just covered in hogs. Just read the local rules. Some places are shotgun or archery only. Some places get a fair bit of traffic from guys running dogs. Be safe and have fun.
