WATCH: Fun Hog Hunt Helps with Deer Management

Come along for an exciting over-the-shoulder Horton crossbow hunt for nuisance feral hogs with Osceola Outfitters in the swamps of central Florida.

Jimmy Roesman with Osceola Outfitters guides his hunter to within bow range of the perfect porker for summer barbecue. When the trigger’s squeezed on the Horton Legend UltraLite crossbow, a New Archery Products KillZone Crossbow broadhead screwed into an Easton FMJ Crossbow arrow gets the job done with a solid, quick kill.

Sneaking within range of feral hogs is tricky if you're not aware of the wind direction, because they have great noses.

Feral hogs roam throughout Florida and the Southeast out to Texas and the Midwest. They’re expanding their range north through illegal release by hunters and landowners along with migration. Feral hogs are terrible for farmers because they can root and destroy fields in short order before moving on to the next area. Plus, they’re prolific breeders.

Whether you're shooting a bow or firearm, making the best shot counts when you want to give feral hogs a dirt nap.
