What are you suggestions for a first time hog hunt and hunting on a piece of private property for the very first time? Do's and Don'ts? And being able to hunt the property multiple times with out running the hogs off.

Genesis 27:3 Now therefore take, I pray thee, thy weapons, thy quiver and thy bow, and go out to the field, and take me [some] venison

Wear rubber boots, keep movement to a minimum early and late, whispered voices only(they are extremely sensitive to unusual sounds), don't hunt a spot if the wind is wrong.
Wild pigs are one of the smartest of all game animals, be at least as stealthy as you be would deer hunting.

All good info above. I would try really hard not to walk all over place. Hogs are good at relocating if they are pressured much. Feed them well and hunt the big guys long after dark. Get some solar patio lanterns and put them by bait site so they get used to it. Pop up blinds scare the hell out of hogs unless you brush em in and lkeave them up all the time. Ground blinds are way to go, take shovel dig a good pit blind. Hunt the wind and try set blind where your back is covered fence etc.
