One of the replies to the post below stated that there is a large recreational area in Tennessee that has an open season on pigs until the end of Febuary.

My question would be as to what is the best method for a solo hunter to be successful in such a setting? Stalking? Some sort of bait? Would walking along the river bottoms be any good? Would hunting towards the end of the season be any good?

I would really appreciate any advice.

Walk the low areas and look for the rooting of these destructive varmits. The rangers are reporting sightings at daylight and before dark. Stay close to the water and good luck.

Stalking or baiting? I recommend a little of both. I would also throw out a trail of corn while you are driving or walking while you are scouting and stalking. Give it a day or two, if possible. If not, then walk back "the corn trail" and see if any pigs found the corn.

I just LOVE hog hunting! :-D

TN doesn't allow any baiting of any game. Getting caught with grain in your pocket from any season from dove to boar will get in in hot water. Some of the game ranches do bait because those animals are rasied exclusivly for that.
Hunting hogs during the day is a walk/stalk/sit and watch trip. (good for the soul) Get in low and deep leave bread crumbs cause we get alot of hunters turned around and late getting home.
Good luck, Rick :grin:

I appreciate all of the help so far. I was just thinking about this as a possible hunt in the future. Liek I said, I have hunted hogs on private, and now too expensive, ranches in Florida a decade ago. I was contemplating something less expensive. But, I am assuming that hogs in a more northern state would behave differently than in the citrus groves of Florida.
