Are there feral pigs in Pennsylvania?
Check Vol. 02 No. 04 of Pennsylvania Outdoor News. PON is reporting around 200 hogs have been released from those hunting preserves in Cambria and Bedford Counties over the past six years. The PGC admits it is not permitted to manage the feral pigs. They simply don’t fall under the definition of game or wildlife. This means there are no regulations dealing with seasons or bag limits. Not even the prohibition against Sunday hunting would apply to a hog hunt. You can bait them. You can hunt them at night. There just isn’t any regulations or laws dealing with them yet.
This forum has some discussion about wild hogs in PA.
This fellow remembers a hog release many years ago in Sullivan County.
Whose ready for a little winter hoggin’?
