I'm from OH, a couple of us were talking about trying a hog hunt in the future.

Any suggestions on a place in KY or TN?

I've been to Caryonah in Crossville TN, and that was a really good hunt, guides ect. I'll be going back this fall. You'll do a LOT of walking, and stalking there.

It looks like the prices are on the rise though...

You didn't say free range, or a hunting preserve. If you really want a hog, some of the preserves in TN., are your best bet. My son and I went to Wilderness Hunting Lodge, last March, outside of Monterey, TN. Alan Wilson runs a good hunt there. Great lodging, good food, friendly staff, and a lot of hogs that have the "russian" look. Here is a few pics.

I highly recommend www.croyscabins.com in Tennessee. We drove down there from Northern Illinois just three months ago in December and had a truly wonderful experience. Super nice people who really know what they're doing.

See my thread here with a ton of pics showing the property, the lodge, the accomodations, the bed and breakfast food, and - of course - the wild boar:

They had the best pricing too after I did hours of internet research....

Thanks mm6mm6. Funny, I read your post last night. Looks like a great place. Be about 8hrs from central OH, but it looks like it would be a good place to go.

If you haven't decided on where to go hunting yet, you may want to consider Loshbough Hunting Lodge, Crossville, Tn.

Great people, great guide (Tommy) and over 500 acres of rolling Tennessee hills. Just got back last week and my Wife shot this nice 200# full-blooded Russian Boar with one shot to the heart out of her Marlin 30-30 using Hornady LeveRevolution 160Gr ammo.
