Default James Daughtrey hog hunt in February 2018

I was fortunate enough to get selected for the February hog hunt at the James Daughtrey public bow hunt. I was just wondering if anyone else on the green screen got selected too. My hunt runs from the 10th to the 25th. My last bow hunt was over 25yrs ago so I'm looking forward to this bowhunt. I'm a bit bummed though that my wifey didn't get selected. My buddy GW said that if I ask the folks running the hunts at JD very nicely, they might allow her to sit with me in the blind, but not hunt. Crossing my fingers they allow her to just sit in the blind with me.

My boy and I pulled this tag. On the fence about if it's worth the effort.

Anyone out there with info on number of critters seen, bait effectiveness, etc.....

Plan to camp at Choke.

Compartment that backs up to San Miguel creek is loaded with pigs. Paint the road yellow, they'll find it.

Have not thought about the overnight location yet, hopefully this week I will have time to look into the options.

I'm thinking of camping out there if I decide not to make the 1.5hr drive back home in SA everyday.

I hunted there during the buck hunts last year and I was covered up in hogs. Tons of hogs along the river. When you drive out of the caretakers house and take a right, I was in the last compartment on the left, I think it was #5. It has an oil pump on the edge of a Sendero. My first night, at about sundown, everything around me went from quiet to load brush crashing. Hogs were everywhere. PM me if you have any questions.

Mason (150class) had a great live hunt on here several years back. I think Daughtrey was in the title. It was deer only but it had great detail. Also included was info about accommodations and other TBHers he saw there. I don't remember if he saw any hogs but it was a good thread.

So the day has come gents. It's 0130 hours and I can't sleep. I'll post up pics and maybe a small write-up once I get there. It's my first bow hunt in about 25 yrs so needless to say I'm pumped. Hope to see some of you out there.

I drew compartment #3. In the first 20 minutes I had 5 does within 30yds. The javalinas showed up about 3pm. I had tons of them within 15yds. Unfortunately the piggies didn't show up today. Gonna give it a second go around tomorrow. I'm hunting from a portable blind and baiting the hunting area with stinky corn and plain corn on the road.

So I'm out here again in compartment #3. I'm starting to believe this compartment doesn't hold any hogs. It has tons of Javis and deer, but still no hogs. I scouted the whole area on the first day and didn't see a lick of hog sign. These guys beat me to the blind today. Will keep hoping for the best.

Hang in there. That WMA has a bunch of hogs. Did the deer management hunt there a few years ago and didn't see any hogs the first few sits. All of a sudden, they just showed up. Keep the golden kernels flowing and hopefully they will find them. The javelinas are a pain in the butt though. They can hoover up corn faster than anything. Good luck.

Gonna give it another try today. I set-up a portable feeder with sweet corn and a trail cam so hopefully this will come together soon. I have 10 more days to figure out these pesky piggies.

So I didn't hunt yesterday or today, but I did go check on my feeder and trail cam. The feeder worked as it should dispensing 2x a day. The trail cam I got at Wally World(Tasco 6MP) on sale worked ok. The pics aren't super clear, but you can't expect much from a $25 camera. It did capture 2 piggies coming in at 6:18pm which is about the same time I saw them 2 days prior. Guess I'm gonna have to stay put til dark 30 next time. They finally found the sweet corn I threw out and the stinky corn I buried.

The hog/coyote hunt runs through Feb. 25th. But due to my work schedule I only have the 21st and 22nd to hunt. I might camp out for those two days so I can get a morning hunt in too just in case these hogs got my text messages that I only have a few more days with them.
