I just recently got a new bow and have been shooting it a lot and was wanting to start hunting with it. i have hunted deer a few times with my uncle in Alabama but never here in La. i live in Slidell since deer season is coming to a close i was thinking of looking to kill some hogs but i really have no idea where to get started. If anyone could point me to some good public land or and things u thing i should know please comment.

head up toward forest hill / Alexandria area. Find a lease near a river. if you want to hunt close to home, hit the pearl river WMA. Plenty hogs out there.

If your in Slidell , Pearl River WMA is the spot. Not sure what area that's in, but in area 6 where I'm at bow season goes for a good bit longer than you'd think. Just get a good map on the web, and go. Wear orange. Walk a lot. Look at everything. Eventually you will see sign of animals, either hogs or deer. Set up near there either with a ground blind or climber. I like to use a climber. Make sure to wear a safety harness. The key is to go. Even if you don't kill anything you will be learning the area. This is true whether its public land or private land. You could be in my deer lease, but if you don't go look in the woods, you will never kill anything but time. Good Luck!
