We intentionally do not use dogs because of the danger to the dogs from being accidentally shot or the dogs getting gored by a big boar’s tusks.
ARE WILD HOGS IN FLORIDA DANGEROUS?
Yes, they certainly can be. If they are wounded or cornered, extreme caution should be taken especially if it is a big boar. This is generally not a problem on our buggy hunts because the hunter is way up on the buggy.
The cost of hog hunts with us includes skinning, quartering, preparing for taxidermy if desired, and icing your harvest. You bring the cooler, and we have ice.
WHAT TO BRING ON YOUR HOG HUNT:
Comfortable clothing. Camo is not necessary on our swamp buggy hunts. Match your clothing to the weather. During the warmer months of the year, short sleeved shirt and pants are recommended. Afternoon hunts in the summertime, a rain jacket is not a bad idea to bring along as well. During the cooler months, a long-sleeved shirt and pants are recommended. On cold days in winter, Okeechobee can get quite cool so bring a jacket. Closed toe footwear, visored hat and sunglasses are advised. Finally, bring a cooler for your take home meat and WE HAVE ICE.
Any caliber from a .223 to a .30-06 is ideal. The weapon of choice on our swamp buggy hunts is a .223 A/R platform with a red dot scope. We offer loaner weaponry at no charge although we do charge for ammunition. Travelling through an airport with a firearm? Check out the link www.tsa.gov
