Anyone every go to the Tioga Boar Hunting Preserve? My 13 yr old son is begging for a Boar hunting trip and this place seems close enough and reasonable in price. Any expereiences?

Also, given the choice, for Boar hunting would you choose buckshot, slug, or muzzleloader? I am leaning towards the muzzleloader and my son is leaning towards the shotgun. Any ideas?

Thanks folks.

my son (14 years old) and myself went there for the first time in April we had a great time, good food and great hunt. Just let them know you want to do a good stalk hunt and it will last longer plus the meat has been great from the boar. My son used his 270 and I used the 30-06 but the shot gun or muzzy would work. If you do go hope you guys enjoy.

I've been going to Tioga preserve for about 18 years and it is a great place to go to and "hunt" during the off-season. They have a lodge with multiple rooms for different size groups and the guides are very attentive and make sure you have a great experience. Food is awesome which is what my son loves to go there for. Like anything else, this is a preserve but the terrain will give you enough of a challenge. We once spent four hours chasing after a Corsican ram going up and down the hill, rocks and mud, it was hard enough! But conversely I have been up there for Buffalo and merely walked up and shot it at 50 yards. By the way, I have gone elk hunting in Colorado where I found my 5x5 a mile away from the truck too. My point is, just have fun, they'll make sure you do. Go to Tioga and make your own assumptions, but if you really want a wild hunt then a preserve would not be the right choice.

I went boar hunting a few months back in PA at a place called island exotic hunts in baimbridge PA. they put the pigs out on a 150 acre island. it was a good place if you dont mind shooting farm pigs, but I wouldnt go there if you actualy want to shoot an actual wild boar. these pigs were straight up farm pigs and it was no challange stalking them at all. They said before the hunt that all the pigs they put out for the day were no smaller than 270. I shot the biggest pig of the day and it was 230. It was definitly a fun trip but shooting farm pigs at 25 yards with a 270 isnt exactly challanging
