I've never hunted hogs in N.C., only in Ga and S.C. But, interestingly enough, the very first wild boar with true European (Russian) heritage were likely found in western N.C. and have since spread to the eastern Tn mountains and elsewhere. These "originals" escaped from a fenced estate in the western N.C. mountains around 100 yrs ago and interbred with the typical loose hogs kept by many back then. .

Hogs do make their way as far north as Ontario Canada and they do hunt them in the winter also, there is a wild boar reserve that caters to hunters from all over North America. Google Big Tusks if you would like more info.

I found this map online that is updated monthly:

It looks like its interactive so you can zoom in on specific areas/states.

When I zoomed in on Colorado I see a couple small blue spots. Will have to investigate that a bit more!
