Ocmulgee is where we will camp unless the River Floods.If it does we will camp across the River on Oaky woods because there is more high ground there.We will not know till the hunt is close but they are so close together it won`t be a problem.


***Attention***
Troy(WidowEater) is compling a list of Hill bows that will be at the hog hunt. It will be a great way to try a different bow and make new friends.


If you are going to the 2013 Hill Gang Hog Hunt please send your bow specs to me. Use the Template I posted here: http://tradgang.com/cgi-bin/ultimatebb.cgi?ubb=get_topic&f=1&t=113804&p=42


1st Hill Gang Hog Hunt

This hunt is a Hill style bow only hunt.

Several months ago the guys that contribute to the Hill thread had an idea to hunt together. Within the last week, plans we’re made to hog hunt Southern Georgia because it offered many opportunities for wild hog and easy access flying into Atlanta.


As the date gets closer, we will need to plan the logistics.


The hog hunt will take place on a WMA, 2/22, 2/23, 2/24 of 2013.

Camping will be primitive.
Several members in Georgia have offered to bring camping and cooking equipment.
Food bill can be divided amongst everyone.
Archery equipment can be shipped ahead of time to a member in Ga. or Fl.
If you’re flying in to Atlanta try to carpool with another member.
If you’re driving south try to carpool with another member.
We should have enough tents and sleeping bags to accommodate everyone that’s flying in.
Guys that are driving, bring a target with you, so we can practice and do any fine tuning.
WMA license $73.00
3 Day hunting license $20.00

Hill Gang Hog Hunt

Dates: 2/22, 2/23, 2/24 of 2013.

The bow should be of a Hill Style, being straight-limbed, reflexed or string-follow.

Primitive camping (no restrooms) on Ocmulgee WMA on the tract near the check station, unless the river floods. If it does we will camp across the river on Oaky Woods because there is more high ground there. We will not know till the hunt is close, but they are so close together it won’t be a problem.

Ocmulgee WMA is 17,370 acres, close by is Oaky Woods WMA 13,240 acres. Ocmulgee check station is located at 32 27.144N 83 28.182 W
Maps of Ocmulgee and Oaky woods are visible here:
http://georgiawildlife.com/maps/hunting/region4

The Ocmulgee River splits the two WMAs in places. Depends on River stage as far as float hunting goes. If you wanted to hunt Oaky woods you could canoe straight across the River to save a 30 mile drive.

Recommend getting licenses on line beforehand WMA license $73.00
3 Day non-resident hunting license $20.00

In February it will be also small game season, so you guys bring your Flu-Flu's. RC said there's lots of squirrels.

I would expect it to be in the 20s at night and highs in the 50s.

It would be mostly spot and stalk for hogs and small game, unless you bring a treestand.

Bring a Thermacell and good walking shoes as well as a pair of rubber boots. Snakes are active anytime of year here on sunny days above 50 degrees or so. Just be careful and watch where you step and you will be fine.

Those GA swamps can get you turned around. It would be a good idea to have a GPS and/or compass.

A map for those in other states who might want to carry a concealed firearm in GA: http://www.georgiapacking.org/gflr.php

You can get wood from the WMA as long as its already down. Woodstoves are cool. No generators after dark. Camping only in designated areas. No ATVs or driving on walk- in roads for any reason.

You quarter and pack out. This is not a managed hunt. After deer season when small game is in you pretty much have the run of the place.

There is a Lake there that is man made and 88 acres that 10 lb bass are caught and released regularly. Not to mention Bream and cats. So if you get tired of walking....you can fish.


Highway 96 east out of Bonaire. Oaky Woods is on the west side of the river and Oakmulgee is on the east side. HWY 96 runs across the northern end of the WMA's.

Probably the closest town to Ocmulgee is Hawkinsville. There is a nearby Country store for ice, sodas and stuff. It is also a meat processer and sells smoked meat.

In really cold temps I never see pork till after 10:00 then all day is good. I usually sleep in and hunt from 11 till dark on very cold days.

I’ve not spent a lot of time on Oaky Woods but have seen pigs every time I’ve been there but once. The locals I know say it has more hogs but is a bit tougher because it has more hills and thick cover. For a slow-hunting, patient hunter this could be good.

For you Topo map folks, I believe Ocmulgee is on the USGS Maps named Westlake GA (product #248204), and Tarversville, GA (248273). Oaky Wood (248165) and (248189)

No hunter orange is required. Deer season is over then.

Is this strictly Hill style bows? I have one, but I don't shoot it particularly well. I'm intrigued though.

Luke-

This is going to be a Hill style bow Hog Hunt. Arrows shouldn't matter but the bow should be D-shaped Hill style.

Actually, my bow may not be a Hill style, strictly speaking. It looks just like a Hill bow strung, but has some mild R/D when unstrung. If that is good enough, I may have to start parcticing, if not I wish you all good luck.

Darren, will you be at the state shoot in March?

This is an awesome idea! Thanks for putting it together Darren!

Hog hunting is non-existent up here in the frozen north so it'll be a truly 'exotic hunt'. Lol

An Ontario based Hill shooters wanna carpool?
