Re: northern California pig hunts
Here's a few guides in the "Redding" area. There's a lot more especially in the Sonoma, Mendicino areas[ private ranches is where the action is]. Also near Hollister, Monterrey county down to San Luis Obispo, basically the coastal hills. You can find them now in the Sierra foothills. Also you can google hog guides in Northern Cal. and research, pick and choose, call them for price, lodging, success rates or if they use dogs, etc. Some offer semi-guided hunts that are cheaper. Some are 1 day or up to 3 day/2 nites, same price. Some hunters even go up to the owners of a ranch and ask for permission to hunt. Most all say no for liability reasons and for a lot more reasons.
I shot a brown boar..225lb..2.5 inch tusks[great meat too] years ago on a guided private ranch hunt near Hollister w/a 30-30. A great mount. I'm now looking to go on another guided hunt. Hope you and your dad get one!
1. Just for Hunting....$700 -2 days.
2. Rawhide West..more expensive, I met the guide, watch the you-tube video!
3. Dye Creek...huge ranch, kind of pricey.
4. Dash ranch...looked good
5. Outdoor Adventures... there's more near Redding and Red Bluff...Good Luck
