Anyone recommend a place here in PA for a boar hunt? We have been to the pig farm several times but they are getting pricey. Interested in western PA or eastern OH areas. thanks!

Why Virginia? I just left there in the Summer, and there was little to no talk regarding hunting feral swine. There are some pockets of them, much like in PA, but are not widespread there. The VDGIF is doing what they can to get laws and ordinances changed so that clear guidance and regulations can be made with regards to shooting them. From what I've read, VA has some challenges to overcome in that regard.

Note the one bullet in this Power Point where it says it takes killing 70% a year just to stabilize the population!! All out eradication efforts is what they and PA should be looking at.
