Be advised:

VERY IMPORTANT: All bow only hunters are in Segment B unless you requested Segment A or to hunt with a particular group. During the Segment B hunt the Meyers Unit will be open to archery hunting only. All remaining units will be open to shotgun, muzzleloader, or archery equipment. Hunters may choose where they wish to hunt during your assigned segment. However, anyone caught using or attempting to use a gun in the Meyers Unit during Segment B will have their permit revoked. Also remember that only non-toxic shot is allowed. Pay close attention to the area closed to hunting as we kept this portion open for general public use and hiking. There is a dirt road in the Harris Creek Unit that will be the open/closed dividing line. If you have questions about this area, be sure to ask refuge staff.

You shooting a smooth or rifled bore? If shooting a smoothbore, youíre options are even more limited for store bought ammo. Heavi-Shot used to make a non-tox tri ball 3.5Ē Load. They donít make them anymore, I believe. I still got a few boxes left.

Last year, I used a Steel segmented slug with great success. I cast and reload all my slugs and buckshot.

I got some bismuth/tin alloy that Iíll be casting #1 buck and some hammerhead slugs that Iíll use this year.

Hereís the pig I shot last year:

I didnt see anything in the email about cleaning a hog. I saw we dont have to bring the hog to the sign in station, we just report what we shot.

Do they allow us to field dress?
Do we have to take them elsewhere?
If I am camping in Paradise Cove, I doubt they want us cleaning a hog in camp.

You can do whatever you want with the pig in the field. They obviously dont want you to leave any parts near the roads, but you can leave one lay, gut it, quarter it, bone it out, whatever you want to do in the field.

Probably not a good idea to hang it in a tree at the campground.

In past years Gayle said you could leave them where they lie. Probably just take what you want and leave the rest for the yotes.

Based on what I've been told in the past, they just ask that you don't leave them close to any trails or roads.

We always quarter our pigs where they fall and carry them out in our packs. Its kind of like a poor mans elk hunt.

They had a shutdown in 2013 prior to the H deer hunt. It cut into scouting time for the seg a people (which I was one of). They did the hunt.

At least you can still scout while they are shut down.
