looking for hogs in Colorado

I recently went hog hunting in Oklahoma and I would like to do more of it, but I don't really want to travel that far. I've heard of feral hogs in Colorado. Does anyone know where I can find more information about hunting hogs in Colorado?

Re: looking for hogs in Colorado

We don't really have a dominant population of hogs in colorado. I've heard that they're crossing the border down in the south east part of the state though. They're a real hassle to landowners down there.

click this link and search feral hogs in the 2007 archives

I've read what little the DOW has on their website about hogs, which isn't much, except that it is apparently a big enough problem that the DOW decided to adopt an official policy about what to do with them. To me, that means there is enough of a problem to get the DOW to take some sort of action, and that means land owners who wouldn't mind me havesting a few. All I can find out from the DOW website is that the "problem" seems to be in the Arkansas river drainage.
