How would you hunt them?
I'm wanting to go on a hog hunt in TN and was wondering how you all would hunt them???
1. spot and stalk
2.blind or treestand
and why would you hunt this way?

2nd choice would be blind.
The only thing I've ever hunted with a dog is rabbit and quail (different dogs)....mainly cause I like to eat rabbit & quail...a LOT and I don't mind if the dogs "take the animal". If the dogs do the work...then they are just bringing you with them while THEY hunt. Who can't shoot a boar that dogs run to ground?
As usual, though, this is only MY opinion...and there's a world full of others that would disagree with me on almost ever point."The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits" -- Albert Einstein

where would you run them too with dogs? I can understand using dogs to tree an animal, but where to hogs stop?

With pigs, in particular....if the dogs corner it...then it'll be caught up with them and eventually try to fight back....when it stops and is distracted you can walk up and kill it. (Only been on one pig hunt, that's how it went down..and I didn't get a shot. The guy who owned the dogs did.)"The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits" -- Albert Einstein

Then it all began...and we did a LOT of hiking to keep fairly close to the dogs. Still, I feel they did the hard work...because with 3 dogs the boar doesn't have much of a chance to get away and it was harrassed CONSTANTLY by the dogs. It took longer to get him than I would have thought, though.
FYI: I'm not nuts about the taste of wild boar...smoke it if you get one...best way to eat it imho."The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits" -- Albert Einstein

might as well bump this to the top and save Bunnyman the trouble.

If I had a choice, my first would be spot and stalk, because I have never had the opportunity to try it and I am always up for a new and exciting challange.
My second choice would be blind/stand because it puts you on a level playing field with the pig (so to speak).
Anyone who knows me from AT knows how I feel about hunting with dogs. Not a big fan of it at all for game other than birds. I will respect anyone else's choice to do it as long as it doesn't impact other hunters, it's just not my idea of a challanging hunt.That look on my face is not concern, its shock at your utter stupidity!

I hunted them from a treestand first with no luck in the morning
Then after about 4 hours of just seeing rams the guide came and got me
picked up 2 pit bulls and turned the dogs loose and we chased them around a bit and they had 1 cornered..small 1 ..which i approched and it turned on me
no trees 2 climb
my bow went 1 way i went another and the hog went stright
after that happened i told the guide i wanted to get back off the ground
2 hours later i bagged 1 at 27 yds beside a creek where they came in the evening to wallow..from a fixed ladder stand
