Wild Boars / Pigs in New York State

Hi Larry, I've been down to the state land four different days and have only seen other hunters. I talked to a local farmer and he did not want to give permission to hunt . He said the State Dec has a project with a bunch of the local farmers. They are baiting , trapping and destroying them on the farms. He claims the numbers are way down from last year. Cry Good luck if you go out and keep us posted if you see any.

I talked to a girl at the DEC in Cortland yesterday. She said they are going to bait and trap the hogs for reserch and study but not destroy them. Maybe a few for research purposes. they will be released but not relocated. We`ll see if we can find a couple.

Welcome to the forum. It is a great place.
I see you list that you are from Moravia! Heck fire I can almost spit on Moravia from my back deck.

I was out rabbit hunting before that rain on Sun. Those bunnys knew that weather was coming. They were sitting tight.

Welcome Sharpshooter, I've spent some time on the state land last month. I did see some signs there but no luck. Lots of other hunters on the weekends . I am working on permission to get on a piece of property a little east of there. You would think the farmers would welcome you but not so. Good luck
