Horatio Hog Hunting

The little town of Horatio is located in Sumter County along the banks of the Wateree River, and the only thing better than the deer hunting in Horatio is the wild hog hunting. And unlike deer hunting, hog hunting is a year-round sport.

Wild hogs reproduce at a breakneck pace, and the animals can quickly become a nuisance to property owners and other wild game. The hunting plantations in this area have monthly hog quotas in place in an attempt to keep the beasts in check. Last Tuesday’s hunt put 3 hogs in the freezer, and provided a challenging and rewarding outing for three midlands outdoorsmen.
