Last year, it was dog hunters and floods that ruined hog hunting for me. The dog hunter issue has been resolved (I think), but flooding continues, and to top it off this year, the loggers are moving in near my stands, and I have a pretty darn good hog coming in! Nuthin I can do, lol. Move my operation a mile up the swamp I guess. We're within a month of being able to hunt hogs at night in Louisiana, and I LOVE it - just wish things would turn for the better, lol.

Logging will often times improve hunting. Animals love getting in areas thats being logged.

Yup, sometimes logging opens up some area's that weren't accessible before. I've seen clear cuts rooted up so bad you couldn't drive an atv across it hardly. The animals will get used to the loggers. On one lease, we even had a fella shoot a deer while sitting on a large skidder.

Many thanks!!! I knew that about deer I even watched 2 go into an area while they were working, but figured hogs would leave due to the noise & smell. Got a nice one coming out of an old cutover going down my road on tall sandhill to swamp to my feedr. Not a monster but from tracks & camera pics i estimate 250 which for this area is a good one!

I harvested 55 acres of hardwood and pine last year and the hogs could not wait for the loggers to leave before they started rooting the cut over area up. Logging has not changed any patters in my area.
