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.





I gave up a lease in Marion Co. Because hogs ruined the deer hunting. I got sick of shooting them. They will destroy a place and the deer hate em

For the most part, they only exists in small pockets of the state. In those areas, they can be abundant. Either you have a problem or you have no hogs.

Killing piggies is like killing ants on your kitchen counter top.

You'll find them in your cereal, in your sugar bowl, everyplace if you let them go. You need to kill them all. No mercy. Traps, bait, anything to kill them all.

I'd like to see TWRA check in to what ever they did on Catalina Island to get rid of the piggies. I know sport hunting didn't even dent the population.

Hogs are in the corn and wheat here in McMinn and Monroe counties. Been keeping me and my partners busy this past week.

The Cherokee National Forrest is not governed by the TWRA, its governed by the USDA and follows a different set of regulations concerning hog hunting on I think you should do more research.

CNF is managed as a WMA by TWRA.

There's hogs in some areas in Clay County but, they're not really widespread yet. They've been around Dale Hollow for a long time. There's some in the Brimstone Creek area too. A friend got some on trail cam last year but, hasn't got any on his cam in a long time. They probably move around a lot.

.."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"...

http://www.tn.gov/twra/wildhogs.shtml

and for N Cumberland WMA....

.."Wild hogs may be taken during any hunt with
hunting devices legal for that hunt"...p67

http://www.tn.gov/twra/pdfs/wmaseasons.pdf

I read this to mean CF rifle OK during Firearms Deer Season, ML during ML deer season Archery during Archery Deer and Turkey and Rimfire during SG season..No?!..

BTW..looking for a hunting buddy for N Cumberland..my last hunting buddy moved back to N Dakota!..
