Hog Call

Recently moved but spent 20 years in Florida. Got a hog call from Primos and spent many a day sitting in the middle of a swamp calling. hunted on wma's and they were all rather large areas. if you can find some sign set up and give it a try, hogs are such nomads and you have to have the wind right, i think their sense of smell is better than a white tail. I had several come close while i was bow hunting and a couple glanced my way but i could never turn them. they were all traveling in a little herd and they are pretty sharp. By the way the call from Primos can be used as a deer grunt call also. taken a few but just spot and stalk with a muzzle loader.

I've never tried it with hogs, but Javalina (not a HOG) can be called with a predator call. My advice is the get up in a tree, or off the ground some way, because the Javalina come in ready to fight! I believe they think it is a baby Javalina crying for help!

I've called coyotes, fox, and bobcats in areas where lots of hogs run, but the only thing I called in, orther than the predators was Javalina, and Doe deer!

In fact I use a predator call to find buck muledeer in the Sanoran desert mountains of west Texas. Blowing it from a canyon rim, the does will come out in the open, to look at you, then turn and look at the buck, who is usually sneaking out of the canyon in the opposite dirrection from the does! But no hogs.
