Wild Pigs in PA

Anyone ever see or shoot a wild pig in PA. I've heard they are in some counties. I have never seen one in PA, but have shot a lot of them while hunting in Texas for predators and wouldn't mind hunting them in PA, but they are a very destructive animal and would cause a lot of damage for the farmers.

Yes there are some wild hogs in PA. However, don't expect anyone to tell you where they are. Sadly, those who know where they are want them for themselves and don't care how destructive they are.
octagon and gentleben like this.

No use keeping a secret. Once they are established, no amount of hunting will wipe them out.

Hunting: 10% skill and 90% location.

I seen a show on tv bout them, they showed a map on where they were way back when they have been keeping track of them....fast forward to today and they are covering the U.S. at a fast rate....I think they said in only 10/15 years they will have made it to the Canadian border !!!....so people who want them might/will not have a choice then....

I agree, you will not be able to get rid of them. Guys I know from Texas use dogs, poison, hunting and trapping but are still unable to keep them under control. I wouldn't mind hunting them in PA but don't want to spend $700 to hunt one behind a fence.

In order to eradicate them, each and every one in a sounder (group of pigs) must be killed. If one female remains, they'll come back in just a few years. I've seen videos where they were chasing them and shooting them with a mini gun. Still didn't eliminate them.

" If one female remains, they'll come back in just a few years". Actually it takes a male and a female to produce offspring.
