California Wild Boar Hunting

Hunting Wild Boars in California is the pinnacle of hog hunting in North America, and a true big game hunting experience! California is known for taking some of the best Free Range Wild Boars and doing so “Spot-and-Stalk” style. These are some of the toughest animals in the country as well. This hunt is a true hidden gem in the Western US and makes for a great hunt in between the Fall & Spring seasons too if you’re looking for additional hunting opportunities.
Outfitter is a passionate hunter, Long Range Rifle enthusiast, and professional hunting guide for 20 + years. He has a proven track record of taking some of the largest Boars in the state of California year after year, on some of the best private land ranches. Also, clients interested in renting a rifle, just ask! In the state of California, it is important to note that “Non-lead” or all “Copper Monolithic” projectiles are required.



This is a spot-and-stalk hunt that’s ideally suited for Long Range Rifle Hunters. There is an option to hunt with tracking dogs too, if that interests you please ask about this option as well!


Moderate to Difficult, hunters should expect to hunt hard and hike in steep terrain in search of a Trophy Boar.


This hunt can be scheduled year round, however the Spring time is the most difficult with the dense foliage coming in.

Ideally these hunts will take place over the summer, fall, and during the winter months of December-March. April through June is the toughest time typically.


You’ll be hunting the area around King City, California.


Lodging and meals are not included. Here are a few lodging recommendations:
  • The Keefer’s Inn, King City, CA
  • Local Air Bnb’s in the King City, CA area


  • Tag & license are available online and over the counter
  • Proof of hunter’s safety certificate is required

Physical preparation

Make sure you show in reasonable shape, because you’ll be hiking hills and wearing a pack. Be sure to break in your hunting boots because if you have sore feet, everything else is secondary.
