Wild Hogs in New Mexico

Does anyone know if there are wild hogs near the Pecos River in New Mexico?

This month I'll be hunting near the Brantley WMA and was wondering if there were any hogs out there.

Thanks!!!Big smile

Can wild hogs be hunted all

Can wild hogs be hunted all year round in NM? I have a niece who just moved to NM and I plan on visiting her next summer and maybe fall. I was wondering of the opportunity of hunting hogs in the so-called off-season. Any info will be a great help. Thanks in advance.

That is correct, feral pigs

That is correct, feral pigs are non game in NM so they can be hunted all year long. Check the proclamation for regs on what is needed.

good luck

A game warden told me that

A game warden told me that pig season is always open. Apparently there's an issue with them in southeastern NM since I kept running into pig traps during my last hunt.

Feral Hogs by New Mexico 549?

We had a friend tell us he's seen some feral pigs in the area of highway 549 by Deming, NM? I'm not sure if we can hunt in that area?

Yes there are lots of hogs on

Yes there are lots of hogs on the Pecos river.  I think thats actually the largest population.

However, Im not quite sure if non residents can hunt them without a nongame license.  Call the Roswell office for more info.

There plenty around seven

There plenty around seven rivers back towards Artisa N.of brantly....non residents don't need any license for the couse NM don't recognise them as a game animal.

A non res needs to have any

A non res needs to have any hunting licens in possession to hunt pigs, rabbits, skunks, or any non game animal. If a res is hunting on state or federal land they need to have the Habitat management and Habitat stamp, these are $4 & $5 bucks.

I have been wrong but that is the way I read the proclamation on non game animals.

Pigs are a curse. Start

Pigs are a curse. Start trying to eradicate them now before they take over the mountains and deserts in New Mexico.

Any more tips on hogs in NM?

I've been wanting to hunt these little beasties for years!  I'd love it if any of the locals down that in the Roswell Artesia Lovington area would share a bit of info with a northern NM hunter.

I'd just like to know the best areas to start looking.  I know the Pecos river seems to be the place but I also know there is a lot of private land down there.  Do any private land owners need some pigs removed?

If so please get in touch.

Happy to bring down some Chimayo chile to willing hunters.
