What they are doing is even dumber, IMO. They are simply using specific areas to differentiate between the two. It was actually posted, prior to the changes two months ago, in a very distinctly different manner, showing both terms in the hunting regs and explaining that if you shot a pig in one of a couple WMAs in eastern Tn it was called a Wild Boar and they had special seasons for them there, normally coinciding with deer seasons.
They have begun to wise up some now and seem to be getting very concerned with the spread of hogs throughout the state.
