i am sure there are plenty of places to go. have a few buddies that trap hogs down here and sell them to the game ranches up north.

Are you talking free ranging hogs or preserve-type setting for hunting?

My first hog was taken in '07 and it was also the first harvest with my M88. I've been hooked since and we make a yearly trip to SE Georgia now, usually in January.

One of our group took this one this past January. He went over 250 pounds.

Hunting of wild boar or wild hog is not permitted all over the United States. It is confined to just 15 states. The standard states are Kentucky, South Carolina, Arkansas, Georgia, Mississippi, North Carolina, Alabama, Ohio, Florida, Hawaii, Oklahoma and California. Each state has it is own set of hunting laws

I think your list is way incomplete, at least since you've included the term "wild hog" and not simply "wild boar". Two states you failed to mention have very good populations of hogs. First, Tennessee actually differentiates between wild boar and wild hogs in some WMAs, restricting the harvests there. In other areas (most of Tn) the hogs can now be killed 365 days a year, simply by possessing a small game license.

I am fairly sure it is also legal to hunt hogs in Louisiana and most all other states they are located in.

You also failed to mention Texas, which likely has the highest hog population of any state. The state of New York has also opened a 365 day season recently after finding pockets of wild hogs.

What You Can Do

As stated above, DEC's goal is to eradicate feral swine from the state's landscape. In New York, people with a small game license may shoot and keep feral swine at any time and in any number. All other hunting laws and firearms regulations are still in effect when shooting feral swine. If you are in an area that prohibits the use of rifles during big game seasons, you cannot use a rifle to shoot feral swine during any open deer season (including archery seasons). Please remember that it is illegal to discharge a firearm within 500 feet of a school, playground, church, dwelling, farm building, or occupied structure. You need to obtain permission of the landowner to enter any lands you do not own.

If you do shoot or see feral swine please report it to the nearest DEC regional wildlife office or e-mail us. Please report the number of swine seen or killed, whether any of them were piglets, the date, and the exact location (county, town, distance and direction from an intersection, nearest landmark, etc.).
