I hunt hogs regularly and they can be unpredictable. But with climber and a good squealer and grunt you are sure to get one. They sows don't respond as well to squealer but a boar that is wound up is sure to come in running ready for a fight. The grunt works well to bring them in slow and easy if your scent is covered and you are near a wallow or one of their rooting spots. I hunt them from the ground all the time, I enjoy the adrenlin rush but be careful if on the ground they sometimes answer the squealer and grunt from a distance but will sneak to another angle of approach without your knowledge. If hunting from the ground it is best to have a hunting buddy there to be ready will gun or bow if you are using a caller.I am in Mobile county and we are starting to have a bit of a overpopulation problem so come on over and help us clean them out. Hog is one of the best meats of wild game because the gamey flavor is only strong through out late spring, summer and early fall.
