Default Wild Hog Hunting?

Anyone do any wild hog/boar hunting? Anyone interested? Anyone have any information on it, good places to go?

Did some research, and around Midland county looks pretty good. No license required if you have a CPL. No season, no limit, no rules, if you see one shoot on sight.

Anyone interested in getting together for a hunt let me know. I don't like the idea of going out alone.

The rules are shoot on sight if:

1. you are on your own private property or have permission to shoot on another private property

2. for public land: you have a hunting license of any type (which requires a base license) or you have a CPL during an open season for hunting

Year round hunting seasons are for: Opossum, Porcupine, Weasel,
Red Squirrel, Skunk, Ground
Squirrel, Woodchuck, Feral Swine,
Feral Pigeons, Starlings, and
House Sparrows


I see that they now put Feral swine in this category.




I feel like they would be hard to pin down unless you were patterning them or had insider clues. Seems like most people try to trap them.

Damn those piglets on the grill look good. Been looking at DNR maps and there seems to be a lot of DNR land in Midland county. Thinking about going to the DNR office in Bay City and talking to them. Have to go over that way Monday.

Mudking, are you willing to come up to Midland to hunt?

My dad and I saw one in the woods 40 years ago outside of South Branch/ Lupton. No one believed us but we saw it.

I think you're best bet is south eastern gladwin county. I hunt all over midland county state land and I haven't ever seen one, or any signs. I have seen areas off Center Fire Line rd south of the ORV parking lot in gladwin that were all torn up while riding dirt bikes.

Most of the hogs spotted in midland county have been on private land. There isn't a whole lot of state land near where the hogs got loose years ago. Larkin twp is where they escaped from and seem to spread out to the north and east mostly.
