Today I am joined by my good buddy and California hog hunting guide, Tony Lombardi. If you guys want to go on a hog hunt you need to go with Tony. I did a hunt with Tony 3 years ago and we have been close friends ever since. He’s a great guy and has some killer hog hunting in Cali not only with a ton of hogs but it is beautiful country hunting pigs in rolling hill country of California. In this episode, we chat about hunting in California and cover everything from hunting as a resident to applying as a non-resident. We cover public land pig hunting and even applications for access. Whether you are a resident or a non-resident you should pull some great info from this episode.
GoHUNT.com just added California to their growing list of states and did a great job with the launch. I can’t say enough good things about goHUNT.com, they continue to add new states and grow their information. If you listen to Tag Tuesday, you need a goHUNT account. That is all there is to it, I use goHUNT religiously and I love the platform. If you fancy yourself a hunter, you need to go sign up for goHUNT and become an insider member. Use the promo code TRO when you sign up and you will automatically get $50 to use in the gear shop.
