Where can you hunt hogs in Tennessee? Always wanted to try it but don't know nothing about it!

Hogs were given a unique status several years ago. Your best bet is to find a land owner that needs to get rid of some hogs.

I just got a tip on where some are around my area in scott co TN. Had a twra stop and talk to me today and he told me they caught about 100 of them last year. I told him I saw all the traps but never saw any when I was around, he told me they are over run with them now.

Come up here during deer season and lets hunt them, I cant get anybody to go with me after them. I am located 1 hr above knoxville TN on i75 north.

LoL you guys better read the rules before you get too carried away. Hogs are a rare over protected species that are listed as a unprotected species. Kind of an oxymoron

explain please? from what I understand is. That you can hunt them during any hunting season as long as you use the right hunting device for that season. If I am wrong please correct me on this.

It amazes me at the number of folks who hunt but dont take the time to glance over the hunting regs. This isnt nothing new. Been this way for 2-3 yrs if im not mistaken.

straight out of the rule book,plus this is the same thing that the TWRA guy told me.
In Region IV, wild hogs may be taken on any big game hunt on the North Cherokee; any deer or turkey hunt on Kyker Bottoms Refuge; and on any hunt, small game or big game, on the Foothills WMA and the entire North Cumberland WMA.

On the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area, wild hogs may be taken with a special permit during any deer hunts and by small game hunters after the deer season.
http://www.tn.gov/twra/wildhogs.shtml

But I just talk to another TWRA official and he saying what you two are. So I just wont hunt them to be on the safe side.

TNGrizzly just do as the rule book states and you'll be fine. Asking officers will get you several different answers a lot of times.

If the plan was to erratic ate hogs from TN I have always thought TWRA should institute a bounty on Hogs. Say $15 a head for everyone brought in. Hunter would get to keep the meat.

Up the fines for anyone bringing in wild hog to Tn to raise them or release them to the point where its expensive and you lose your hunting rights for life.

That would cure the hog problem pretty quick. But I frankly don't think hogs are that big of a problem in TN because I can find no one that has hogs that wants them hunted or eradicated.
