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

After a successful hunt, the real work begins

A pile-o-pigs marks the end of a successful California wild pig hunt with Oak Stone Outfitters and Textron Off-road. An average wild pig in this part of central California weighs around 160 pounds. Luckily, this Textron Prowler Pro has a rated cargo capacity of 1000 pounds. Even with four pigs, hunting gear, and a cooler full of water, this powerful side-by-side climbed the steep hillsides with ease, thanks in part to its 50-horsepower engine.
