I tend to hunt the mountain country in the cooler months and leave the flat western country for October to February - when it's hot. It's not that the hunting out west isn't productive in winter, it's just that the hunting is bloody brilliant in summer!
More often than not, my hog hunting at the height of summer is in north western New South Wales or south western Queensland. Over the years I've had a lot of success with feral pigs, particularly in the heat. The thing with hot weather hunting is that the pigs need to drink and wallow and with that comes plenty of opportunity for the energetic hunter to get amongst them! You just need to identify areas of concentrated activity and then focus your hunting on these hot spots.
