Find a place to hunt feral hogs this year
Posted by arthur1234 on December 7, 2009
Well, the regular deer season ended yesterday leaving thousands of Oklahoma hunters wishing for more big-game hunting opportunities. Our blog spot a couple of weeks ago regarding safe-guards to take if you shoot a feral hog while deer hunting generated a few phone calls and one request electronically about where to find a place to hunt feral hogs in Oklahoma.
Here is what I tell my family and friends when they ask this question:
The best source of information regarding hunting on state owned land is available from the Oklahoma Department of Wildlife Conservation’s website here. This is the place to inquire whether feral hog hunting is allowed, if there are indeed feral hogs to hunt, etc.
Feral hogs have been spotted in practically all parts of the state over the years but in general the largest populations tend to be in eastern and southern Oklahoma. They are an extreme nuisance and most landowners want them removed but many are unwilling to let someone they do not know hunt. Still, it never hurts to ask permission if you know someone who owns land populated by feral hogs.
The most sure-fire way to get to hunt privately owned land is by getting in contact with someone who welcomes paying hunters. For that, our Oklahoma Agritourism website has a special section devoted to Oklahoma agritourism hunting opportunities.
I hope this information will help you find a place to hunt and I hope you have success in bagging a lot of feral hogs!
