Hello all. I have been wanting to hunt for a long time, and have been slowing getting closer to the actual hunt. Now that I have my rifle and license, I have no idea where to go.

Not easy to find pigs on public lands. Best bet would probably be BLM land to your west. Though there are a few on Facebook land above Pine Flat. Either way, be careful or you can find yourself on private property and in a heap of trouble.

Not sure if it is open until deer season, but fish & game allows access to Cottonwood Creek near San Luis reservoir. There’s pigs there, but it requires lots of uphill walking.

I don’t reckon Facebook has property above the lake. I meant Forest Service.

That's some good info. I had been looking at Cottonwood earlier this evening. I'm just wondering if it will be open to hunt because of all this COVID-19 stuff. I know all state parks are closed until further notice.

Another thought is Fort Hunter-Liggett. It is more expensive and complicated than it was when I went there several decades ago. Not sure there is as much game as there use to be, but one grandson recently took a deer there and another harvested a small pig.
