What a prairie Canadian hunter learned about wild pig hunting in California

Hog wild

It takes a keen eye, steady hand and reliable ride to take down a boar in this part of the world

From dry and dusty to wet and slippery, this terrain calls for 4×4 utility vehicles

Side-by-side vehicles work well for wild pig hunting in this rough terrain—a mix of meadows, rolling oak hillsides and steep brushy canyons. In wet weather, side-by-sides vehicles are the only way to traverse these trails. As a bonus these machines can comfortably haul three hunters, their gear and their game.
