CA Hog Hunters – DFG Offering Hog Hunts in Yolo County Again

September 13, 2012

CA hunters looking for a good, inexpensive hog hunt should keep their eyes on the CA DFG website for opportunities like this one.  For ten bucks and a post card, you can be hunting hogs on private land.  It’s a heck of a deal!

The Department of Fish and Game will hold permit-only wild pig hunts in Yolo County from Nov. 5 to Dec. 3, 2012.

Offered through the Shared Habitat Alliance for Recreational Enhancement (SHARE) Program, a total of 64 hunters will be selected to hunt wild pigs through a random drawing for an access permit.

Hunts will be held at the Bobcat Ranch, located in Yolo County’s Vaca Mountain foothills, west of Winters. Hunting under the SHARE Program helps achieve the ranch’s long-term conservation management objectives, including providing public hunting opportunities and controlling the wild pig population.

Each of the eight hunts will be general method, two-day hunts. Four permits will be issued per period. Successful applicants will be allowed to bring a hunting partner or a non-hunting partner (each permit is good for two hunters).

Hunters with a valid California hunting license may apply through the Automated License Data System. A $10 non-refundable application fee will be charged for each hunt choice. Applicants may apply for multiple hunt periods but will only be drawn for one period per property. To apply for these hunts please go to

Read the rest of the press release.

Keep an eye on the site for more announcements, both for the SHARE program and for other public hunting opportunities, like the Grizzly Island hog hunts.

    The hunts are filling up fast. I just applied for a date in December. Note to those that use the ALDS – When you log into your profile, go to 2012 Hunting Licenses, scroll toward the bottom and you will see a SHARE hunt applilcation. Click on that and it will give you the available SHARE hunts to apply for. Click on the Bobcat Ranch and begin picking your dates.
