Hog Hunting Seminar - May 22, 2010 - Bass Pro Shops

I will be there. Let me know if anyone else is interested!

From Western Outdoor News...
Hunting experts Ron Gayer and Durwood Hollis will be presenting a wild pig hunting seminar at Bass Pro Shops in Rancho Cucamonga Saturday, May 22. 

Hollis, who has published five books on hunting, including Hunting North American Big Game (Krause Publications, 2002), which contains an extensive chapter on wild pigs, has successfully hunted the surly beasts for over 40 years. “This seminar is designed to provide all the necessary information to hunt wild pigs on both public and private land,” Hollis said.

Gayer, former Hunt Coordinator and guide on the famed Tejon Ranch in Kern County, as well as outfitting and guiding in Wyoming, Colorado, and New Mexico, has been pursuing wild pigs in California for many years. “Hunting wild hogs, especially big boars is one of my passions,” Gayer said “The key to success is the when, where and how-to hunt those bad boys,” he went on to say.

Between them, Hollis and Gayer have decades of wild pig hunting experience. And much of this has occurred on public land. “It’s a little known secret that with the right know-how, public land hunters can score on wild hogs,” Gayer commented.

The seminar, presented at the Rancho Cucamonga Bass Pro Shops will cover a wide range of wild pig hunting topics, including: how-to use maps to locate the best spots, reading sign, calls/calling, gear and gadgets, appropriate guns & ammo and a free set of public land hunting hotspots maps.

This in-depth presentation will be held in the upstairs seminar room at Bass Pro Shops and will begin at 10 a.m., Saturday, May 22nd. Cost is just $40 per person (pre-register in advance for only $30, cash or credit card), with junior hunters free with a paid adult. At the conclusion of the seminar a drawing will be held for some terrific prizes. 
Seating is extremely limited and the spots are filled first-come, first serve, so early registration is encouraged. To pre-register and reserve your seat, call (909) 605-3719, or (661) 809-1613.


  1. Should be a great seminar, Al. I know Ron pretty well, and Durwood is something of a legend in CA hog hunting circles. The two of them pack an awful lot of knowledge, experience, and stories between them.

    If you get a chance, tell Ron I said, "hi,"

  2. Thanks, Phillip. I'll be sure to tell Ron you said hello. I am excited to meet them both and to soak up as much as I can. As you know, I strictly hunt with archery tackle in CA and I want my first crack at a wild hog to be with stick and string. It's tough and might take me some time to do it, but it's a goal I have set.
