A Successful Day of Hunting Wild Hogs

By Ed Noonan

As a part-time snow bird, in addition to my daily fishing in the Intercoastal Waterway, I spend one day chasing wild hogs.

This year, I returned to West Shore Outfitters, 15 minutes from Daytona Beach, Florida. In addition to hogs, they offer deer, alligator, Osceola turkey hunts, fresh and saltwater bowfishing. They claim a 99 percent hog success rate, there are no trophy or cleaning fees and a hunting license is not required. The website is www.westshoreoutfitters.com.
