  • Possible Lease

    Hey guys I am new to this forum. I am moving to Fort Bragg in November from Fort Hood, TX. I am big into hog hunting down here and hoping to get some in NC. I have found a possible lease in Columbus County for a really good price, even though it is archery only. I have posted some map pics to see what you guys think if hogs would be on the property. I don't know what hogs like for land in NC, could be completely different from TX. I would set up a timed feeder and occasionally dig some 2 foot deep holes to place some soured corn in to attract them and keep them busy for a while. Looking forward to your guys' advice.

    Thanks!

    HOG LEASE
    OK,I've been hunting in Columbus and Brunswick Co. for over 25 years. Our lease is near waccamaw river.Only in the last few years have we killed many hogs.I see your perspective lease has a drainage,a plus. Those hogs run in groups mostly. You will definitely want to bait them,they roam around to the food sources. You will probably find pretty good deer hunting.This is serious snake country,be warned.I pour out corn in a line down my shooting lanes.Last year I killed two with one shot on purpose with a savage muzzleloader. My partner has done the same with an '06. We aim to kill as many as possible,as we are mostly deer hunters.Good luck. chefjeff

    Hog Lease

    Thanks for the quick reply. I'm glad to hear that there is a pretty good possibility of hogs on this lease. This lease stuck out to me because of the drainage/draw. I am a deer hunter also, but I like to hunt year round so when my deer tags are used up I continue with hogs. Plus all the hogs down here in TX have a tendency to run the deer off from the feeders and some never come back. I assume your talking about killing two hogs along the line of corn, not snakes. But I must ask, when you do come across snakes, do you kill them or leave them be?
