Hog Hunting

Do any of you hog hunt? I met a lady yesterday that has all of these mounted hog heads in her garage. They just moved here from Okechobee, Fl.
She has a beautiful red nose pitbull. I asked her how did she get all of these heads and she pointed to her pitbull, Preacher.
She says that he will always go for the snout of the hog. She showed me a video of the dog taking on a hog. The dog was actually remarkable. They were out spotting hogs when she said they ran into a pack of them. On the video it shows her hubby running for his life b/c he was being chased. He was trying to make it back to the truck. Well all of a sudden you see this pitbull shot out, and starts fighting the hog and then attachs itself to the snout of this hog. That hog was freakin huge! I do not know much about hog hunting.
Well he made it to his truck and hollered for Preacher to release, and he did and then ran and hoped in the back of the truck.
I just thought that it was wild to watch. I have never seen a pittie in action hunting.
She says that Preacher has never substained an injury during any hunt. I do not see how. Wild Hogs are vicious.

It's not my taste, but I won't condemn someone for doing it, as long as it's done right. IMO, the dogs should have protective vests at all times, kevlar preferably. I also think that once the hog is trapped, either shoot it, or hog tie it to sell. Letting the dogs chew on it while it screams is cruel in my eyes. They may be a nuisance animal, but it can still feel pain.

Yah, it is not my taste either. I do not know if she has a vest or not. But she said at the time the dog was just trying to help her hubby b/c that hog almost had him. They eat what the kill...which is good b/c it is not a sport to them..its food on the table.
Now I deer and turkey hunt when I get the chance..but have never hunted hogs. After looking at that video don't think I want to. Running for my life does not sound appealing to me.
I have seen them before when me and my hubby and dad got the old army paintball guns out and went a played war in the woods, but it was from a distance and we just left them alone and moved to a different location.

I'll have to kindly disagree, because I feel that it's unfair to the hog. Kind of like cheating

I don't personally know anyone that does it but I have watched videos and it is pretty crazy and I have to agree on the dog gear if I did it my dogs would have to wear it. And as far as it being unfair to the hog so is shooting it with a gun but really does it matter if it's gonna be used for food anyway JMO though

i hog hunt but ive never let my dogs go at em when their still kickin. dogs that hog hunt are trained in hog huntin. the dogs need to know waht part of the hog to go for or they will get seriously injured. you cant just take any pit and have him catch a hog... theres pretective gear (kevlar vest and 2in heavy duty collar) that the dogs HAVE to wear or the hogs will literaly tare them apart. my buddy will let his dogs catch em and then toe em back to camp. they come in handy out in the bush the only thing we do is make the final kill. i am also from fl about maybe 2hrs away from okecy. if ur goin to hog ur dog you have to realize ur dog will probably get hurt.
there a lot more to hoggin ur dog than some people think, its extreamly dangerous to u and ur pup but i love hearin thoes hogs wine its the sound of gooooddd eatin

I wouldn't put my dog in that position. Too easy to lose one. But I would definitely get in on it with someone else's dog. Dogos do a pretty good job at it.

I have several friends who do and I would actually like to get into it. They were actually looking at some of our pups to use but we are going to wait right now. If I hunted I would definitely use cut vest on my dogs. I dont think its cheating in any way considering I have a gun that I plan on using on the hog. Its not like Im going to wrestle the hog, its never been and even playing field. I have done some serious thinking about breeding for this pupropse but I think if I did it would be a slightly different strain that what I am running now. I would use my Male dogs but I would probably look at 100% game females, something off the ELI line.

I know it's a little off subject... But, We have javalinas around here, they're a pain in the butt, but they are illeagal to hunt. Still I ahve a friend that hunts them oldschool, he hunts them with a big knife! They are dangerous at close range but he says there's nothing like the thrill of hunting with your hands! Never uses dogs or guns, I think he plans on saying it was charging him if he ever gets caught.

Not that I've given it much thought or research, but wouldn't you want to add a little size to a catch line like that? I wouldn't think you would necessarily need to add gamebred dogs as much as you would need size and power. Just a thought, set me straight if i'm wrong. Either way, I agree the vest is the only way to go. Those hogs are definitely punishers and one slip can injure a dog beyond repair.

The guys I know run Catahoula crosses and curs and use the APBT as the Catch dogs. Their dogs average 55-70lbs in weight and they work real well. They are so dang quick and 3-4 on a hog works well.
