We had bayed 25+ on a few different occasions. Hard to really tell though as they are always in palmetto flats it seems.

Between 100 and 150, but that was back when we had gentle woods hogs.

Ole lady belle bayed 30-40 head one night. Pancho and 2 other dogs hammered on 20+ one morning behind Rhett's, no telling how many ran the other direction when they broke, I know I seen 20 easy though come out at us. But so far I think the group kate bayed was biggest group and over all biggest hogs. Easy 30+ and I would bet somewhere between 40-50. Never heard a sounder rallying just while being bayed before, let alone from 500 yards.

Mr. Parker, idk if your familiar with the lake hills down at possum point but from there around to the virgin p place on in to ktlin creek bay and back the other way into the edge of the blue pond use to be all virgin oak timber, more acorns than the animal could eat. It was so open you could run a coyote down on a horse. When they passed the stock law we caught around 5 thousand had of semi gentle hogs out of the woods.And left the wildest ones to have a few to hunt.

I have bayed 20 to 40 hogs many times most dogs won't bay a big group cuz they will snatch a smaller one up. Man I sure would like to see 150 hogs bayed up I bet that's pretty cool

We went the other day and bayed up 80 plus it was crazy I was happy it wasn't at night. I have never seen that big of a group. And every time you brake it they would all come back together

Bayed a sounder the other night that had been coming to my feeder, whole pack lit up, I'd say 28 head to be exact. That's how many I've counted in one picture under the feeder, and from 500 yards you could hear the grunting. It was nuts! If they would have been about 30-40 yards more to the right we would have had it all on game camera..
The worse/cool part about it was it was the night I tied that big boar. He snuck out with another one his size and they took a bay up next to a hog wire fence that runs on the back side of my place. And they did some real damage once we sent the Bulldogs in. But still got one of the two suckers tied.

I don't know the area letmroll  but there used to be lots of hogs in the woods ....... them  groups of woods sows would raise all there pigs and  have a good litter of about 8 ...now days the dogs we hunt kill out pig crops ...old timers would have grabbed a pine knots and busted there heads if they deemed one a pig killer he had  to go ...... my grandpa had woods horses and cattle and 400 or so head  of woods hogs ,,,, they had  pens here where I live ....still yet  there is wire  in trees where old timers would bay a big group of hogs out of there range and drive em where they could get a truck to em go get wire and build a fence around em while they was bayed and drive all they could to it and load em .....hahahha man I wished I could have seen it ....I seen the   wire fence one day squirrel hunt'n with my grandpa he always had a dog that would tree squirrel and coons and he told me thats why that wire was there .....

I bayed a group of about 50 hogs out in Flatonia about 8  years back... sounded like a motorcycle race about to start. We're lucky to bay 10 in a group in these parts.

Mike I know what u mean. Ever since heli hunter started he has knocked the piss out of them you can't hardly find hogs on most of my spots any more. Where ever he flys they have learned to stay out of those areas for the most part. And the new hog dogger every week has put a knock on them to. The ranchers I hunt for he flys for to so makes it hard

Yes a pig killer was not tolerated (I understand we have different hogs now days and need rough dogs a lot of times). If a hog broke the rally it was always a boar and one are two of the cur dogs would catch him are spin him back to the rally. A lot of people don't know this but when you cut a boar pig he stays with his momma the rest of his life are her life. We had stationery pins and we'd feed at each pin a certain day and certain time off the week without fail, and they were would be there and be ready. Mr Parker do you know Shawn Edmonds.

No bs? Like as a small hog if you cut them or even as a older big hog? Excuse my ignorance I know little about barring and never heard anything like this?

I can't say that it's true or not. But I do know that hogs will find there way back to there own herds. A Barr for general purpose turns in to a sow. Sows and young pigs form herds that stay together. The boars usley don't stay with the herd but ain't far away that why they will run you thru a herd to shake the dogs. Now a mature boar say 175 or so that's then cut I wouldn't think he would fall back to his momma but I am pretty sure a little guy would.

That's crazy. Honestly figured any male hogs would bounce around like a gypsy. Seems to be the case around here. But I do have a boar or 2. Real big ones. You can run 7 miles as a crow flies and in 2 weeks he will be back bedded in same property. I want to Barr a few this year and stop killing everything I catch. I've watched my hog numbers plummet.

If u think about it when a sow is born in a group it never leaves that group unless something crazy happens like caught and moved so on and so on so if u catch a baby boar and cut him u just took all his reason to leave no bigger boat will try and run him off cuz he is not a threat and on top of that he turns in to kinda a p•$$ to

Yes slim no b.s., I'm talking about cutting them when their pigs they will stay with their mom unless something happens to one of them. Now a boar that's up already rambling no he want go back to his mom when you cut him.
