Where in Wisconsin are these hogs roaming? I only just heard about this in the past 3 weeks. If any one knows where please any information would be awsome. I would also put together a hunting party to hunt these animals, they have been noticed as ruthless and very destructive towards the enviornment. If any one would care to help out. email me at firstname.lastname@example.org

Hey there, ya crawford county is a good place the DNR website gives a map on the areas that they have been spotted in wisconsin. Even Waushara county might be good, thats where i plan to go any way. Ive got some land there i can hunt on. The hardest thing is finding some public land to hunt on, most of the placec they have been spotted i think are private land.

I'm guessing if you find out where the hogs are the landowners will be more than happy to accomodate you. These animals cause alot of damage and if you use the typical niceties of asking for permission I would think the landowners would be willing to allow you access.

I guess I don't understand why WI wants to wipe out all hogs. I realize they are non-native which should give me my answer but do they really do that much damage? Deer and hogs coexist just fine, if you think differently you are wrong. I have 200 acres that they live together wonderfully on. I can see why farmers are bothered, because they dig out fence posts but wiping them out of a state seems a bit extreme.

These animals cause many problems, soil damage and disease transmission are just two of the worst in my mind. Having large populations of these animals in the woods of WI would cause drastic changes to habitats and ecosystems. They may be able to coexist ok with deer but there are many more reasons to keep them from gaining a permanent foothold here. I fear though that they are in WI to stay.
They've been in your neck of the woods(FL) for 500 years so you might not notice the damage. I did a simple search and found that Florida would like to reduce the numbers of these as well since there are an estimated half-million of the buggers.

I would have to agree that they are a rreal pest in WI because of the farmers that we have. I know a few that have been calling in to the DNR that they are recking the field, but them and the deer are fine. They dont pose much of a threat to deer, they dont ruin their territory. But the fields are being ruined alot. At least in the affected areas.
