    FYI

    Just found out I will be off duty on Thursday December 27. With that said, the Visitor Center will be closed Monday December 24 until Friday December 28. I will be back on duty Friday December 28, 8am to 3pm for email, fax or in person pig hunt registration. If you’re already registered with the Visitor Center then you are good to go and can hunt this holiday season.

    As always, any Q’s just ask!

    Be safe,
    ~Rachel Mack

    I'm lookin to take my first hog sometime in the beginnin of February and I was considering lake sonoma but after seein the pig take chances don't seem too good. I'm curious does anyone know if ppl just aren't venturing out far from the trail or are pigs just very slim? First time on the website!
    Thanks-Jan

    Cassy79, Lake Sonoma is a state public park so its no cake walk and it can be very physical too, but also very rewarding for the bowhunters who have scored a public land pig with a bow. I have blown a shot on a monster hog there in the past that was with a whole group of rhino size hogs, past a shot up on a dinner a couple years ago myself. It's almost a 3 hr drive each way for me but still worth the while. Plenty of hunters have scored hogs there in the past, the reported average take for hogs each year is around 40 pigs over a period of 4 months that's not bad stats for public land. Some takes are by boat and some on land, some by hard work and sometimes one might just pop out in front of u. Bottom line for me is its a great scenic public place to hunt hogs, just got to deal with hikers, jogers and dog walkers and mountain bikers and occasional other hunters. Plenty of fresh sign everywhere at l.s. they are there, is the best game of playing hide and seek bowhunting for a game animal u will ever have, good luck and happy hunting!.......trauploadfromtaptalk1358124716233.jpg

    Waterfern,
    I haven't had the chance to talk with a lot of hunters this season about their kills. With the Warm Springs side of the lake open back up now, the few hunters I have talked to are super hush about their spots. Pigs are all over our park, I always try to make it clear that I’m not a hunter at all. I have worked here for almost 9 years and with that said, if there were 1000 confirmed pig kills that wouldn't even put a dent in the number of pigs we have here at Lake Sonoma. Sorry I can't give you specifics but I can tell you I know of confirmed pig kills on both the Dry Creek and Warm Springs side of the lake this season.

    I know what you’re thinking, go ahead you can say it, thanks for nothing VC Girl!! HaHa!!

    Good luck this season! )
    ~Rachel Mack
    p.s. thewolfman, you’re too kind!

    Thanks vc girl. They didnt have the "thanks for nothing" post tag so i had to use the "thanks" one instead. I havent had a chance to get out yet this year, so i need to make some time as i do love the place.

    has anyone else noticed that the pigs up there are absolutely covered in fleas and ticks? 3 out of three pigs I have seen killed up there probably had more bugs crawling on them than all 30+ big game animals ive killed in my life combined

    HELLO LAKE SONOMA PIG HUNTERS!!

    Here are the final stats for the Lake Sonoma Archery Pig Hunt. Our volunteer came to this conclusion when logging all of the Daily Check-in sheets that hunters were required to fill out before each hunt. There were 784 hunters registered for this season. Of those 784 hunters, 270 hunters never turned in a Daily Check-in sheet. How many pigs were actually taken this season??? With that said here are the totals based on the information that was given to us by the hunters themselves:

    Registered Hunters: 784
    Boars = 12
    Sows = 22
    Total pigs taken = 34

    As always it was a pleasure answering all of your questions/emails this season. Hunting season is by far my favorite season to work at Lake Sonoma! Call or email in October for information on next seasons archery hunt. Until then if you have any Q’s please feel free to email or call.
