If you’ve spent any time at all researching night hunting lights you have undoubtedly discovered that there are darn near as many night hunting lights on the market as there are wild hogs in the state of Texas (2.6 million last count).
In your search for the right night hunting light it is beneficial to start with the simple question, ‘What is my primary need for a night hunting light?’ This simple question can point you in the right direction to find the ultimate light to meet your needs.
Recently the folks at LousianaBowhunter.com posted a picture on their Facebook page of a wild hog carrying a fawn in its mouth.
The caption was pretty great. “Wondering what you can do during the off-season? Well, I’ll just leave this here for ya to think about.”
Rifle. Bow. Handgun. Lightsaber. Whatever your choice of weapon when taking on a wild hog, there are a few things to understand about the troublesome, but oh so tasty, beasts.
Most hunters heading into pig killer territory are deer hunters looking for some action in the off-seasons. Which makes perfect sense given that feral hog hunting is allowed in most areas year round!
Is it better to hunt hogs during the day or at night?
As the need for feral hog hunting continues to explode in the U.S. it’s important to understand your prey as much as possible. Depending on the population of hogs in your area, and the rise in activity for trapping and hunting feral hogs, your considerations for night-time feral hog hunting become greater.
