First time hunter

Looking to get into hog hunting. I live in the Thibodaux area and have no hunting experience. Being raised out of this glorious state my family was never invested into hunting so I was never presented with the option to pursue it. If anyone can offer any advice that would be much appreciated!

pearl river WMA is about 2 hours from you. there are others that are close as well. Put your boots on the ground and do some walking, find some fresh rooting and snoop around like you were squirrel hunting. I would recommend a 22 magnum and shoot for the head or neck. A shot to spine or brain will drop them, put another in for insurance as soon as you can. Look for places that have been rooted up and are close to some sort of a water source.
