Want to experience an outstanding hunt with your buddies? Maybe introduce your wife, girlfriend or even children to the thrill of outdoor adventure? We treat every hunt as a custom event, so we’re set up to tailor everything to your specific needs and desires. You don’t even need a hunting license—we take care of the details, leaving you free to stay focused on the fun stuff. Our expert guides have what it takes to provide you a guaranteed successful hunt, any time of year.
Our preserve is unique—
Wild boar naturally reproduce right here on our property. Authentic wild hogs make for a more exciting and challenging hunt. Others typically import their animals for release on small fenced plots. With Loshbough, you always have the satisfaction of knowing you earned your trophy in a genuine fair-chase hunt.
Regardless of the hunt you choose, your guides will handle field dressing and transportation of your kill from the hunting area to the taxidermist/meat processor at no extra charge. And no matter how spectacular your trophy, we never add on additional trophy fees. The way we see it, that’s what you’re here for.
HUNTING WILD BOAR is truly an experience like no other.
It’s hard to imagine a more adrenaline-filled activity than chasing a pack of dogs as they bay up three or four wild hogs along with their piglets. Hunting wild boar is truly an experience like no other. The sows are really aggressive and regularly charge dogs (and you, if you get too close). Animals are swirling everywhere, pigs disappear and reappear seemingly at random in the heavy cover, dogs are baying like crazy and running in to nip at the pigs.
Just when you least expect it, the sounder will make a break for it, destroying your carefully constructed setup and setting you off on the chase again. Eventually, you wade into the middle of this chaos and choose your target. You have to keep track of the dogs, the hogs and your guide, all while setting up your shot. When the moment of truth finally comes, it’ll be the high point of a story you’ll tell over and over for the rest of your life. If you’re not an adrenaline junkie, that’s okay too. Stalking or stand hunting presents a unique test of your abilities as a hunter. With near-perfect camouflage, great hearing and one of the most sensitive noses in the animal kingdom, the wild boar can be a difficult animal to bag. Remember, there are some cagey older boars here that have managed to elude serious hunters for years. And if you happen to be a first-timer, are a youngster, want to bring kids along or are physically challenged for any reason? Take the pressure down several notches and settle into one of our comfortable stands. There you can easily wait in ambush over bait or along a game trail.
Whatever you want your hunt to be, we’re here to create your perfect experience.
Our grassland landscape is also home to a number of exotic species. These animals offer a lower difficulty level than wild boars, and they make beautiful trophies. Choose from Corsican Ram, Barbarossa, Black Hawaiian, Texas Dall Ram and others. We recommend exotic rams as a great choice for a first hunt. Sika (not available) Fallow available.
We also offer American Bison hunts, not widely available elsewhere. This unique hunt provides an experience harkening back to America’s frontier days. Bison yields an excellent-tasting lean meat, and as trophies they are unparalleled.

About Us: It all started when my father and uncle bought the boar-hunting acreage back in 1964. In 1995, we were fortunate enough to acquire a beautiful neighboring parcel. This second tract provides the perfect setting for ram and bison hunting.
I grew up right here in Cumberland County, born into a family of avid hunters. So I’ve been spending time in these woods since I was knee-high. Cheri and Susie, officially known as the office staff, are also family members. Like me, they’ve been with the lodge since day one. If you have a question or want to make a reservation, any of us will be happy to help.
Expert guides: Tommy, Chet and Daniel aren’t all family, strictly speaking, but might as well be. They’re very familiar with the local terrain and wildlife, having lived and hunted around here for years. All three are really nice guys, and each is extremely knowledgeable about firearm use and safety.
Together, we all work hard to make sure every visitor experiences the hunt of a lifetime. Maybe that explains why so many customers return year after year.
