Have read and heard that a huntable hog population is in 35 of the 50 states.

Given this,have talked to some friends that live just outta Bend, and they can't seem to find any hogs around that state either. They travel all around hunting ground squirrels and yotes and never come accross any hog sign or talk of people seeing feral hogs.

If you find out something,please post. -----pruhdlr

Bring suntan lotion, shorts and T shirts. Temps in the mid 80's to low 90's.

I have taken two, a 200 pounder and a 600 pounder north of Madras; this fall your dept. of Fish and Game put out a map showing counties with feral hog populations.

I understand that there are a few hogs along the coast as close as you can get to California.

old post, but somone once told me that the reason there is no feral hogs in western oregon is that the winters are to harsh, i have no idea whether this is true or not, because i have never spent time in hog country.

No Way

Western Oregon WX too harsh for a hog.......no way. Hogs live(and thrive) in some parts of the country that gets waaaaaay more snow and cold than does the NW.

They have no problem with Germany,Austria,Switzerland,and some of the other higher elevations in Europe. The "Nuge" has imported them to his ranch in Michigan and are doing very well there. The colder their evironment is, the longer their hair gets,to a point that it is almost as thick as a Musk Ox.

Believe me sir,they are survivors. -----pruhdlr

Most of the hogs in Oregon ARE on the Western coast. Oregon game and fish is doing alot of things to eradicate the hogs. As of this year it will be illegal to knowingly have them on your property, They have aerial shot most if not all near Madras and hammering them at Kalamath falls area as well as a couple of pockets in the north east.

Angry Feral Hogs

The state of Oregon now considers feral hogs as an invasive species! Next years cost to fish and hunt willl increase because of those bringing non-native plants, animals, & fish to Oregon. Not only license fee increases are in store for next year, it will also cost me $10 more to float my driftboat on Oregon rivers because of invasive species.

Diamond Lake was overrun with tui chubs and cost millions $$ to clean up two years ago and idiots are still bringing in illegal live bait to that lake. Johnny Bass Seed has ruined far too many lakes here in Oregon with large mouth bass, now the wild-life idiots want to ruin our forest to hunt hogs.

Hoopie,

Don't even think about it. They are a massive nuisance. Lots and lots of crop damage, diseases spread, eating everything in the forest, etc., etc., etc. You don't want to hit one with a car, either. Yes, they are fun to shoot. But don't let them get started, travel where they already are and shoot as many as you can.

Angry Feral Hogs

For those living in the state of Orygun: The ODFW has been attending club meetings, etc., and presenting a power point program and a booklet on Invasive Species in Orygun. Quite a show and an eye opener!

Anyone even thinking about hogs in this state had better attend one of these showings. There isn't enough money or manpower to fix the damage if they get started.

Hoopie,

PS: and sometimes I don't agree with the (Oregon Dept of Fraud & Waste), but on this I hope the message sinks in to those who hunt and fish.

Yup... they're destroying the south... there are places we used to hunt whitetails that just about cannot support whitetails anymore because the hogs eat up everything and push the deer out. Farmers are having problems with crops because the hogs come in at night and root up their fields. It's open season with no bag limits for feral hogs 24/7/365 on private land down here.
