    Does anyone know a spot, where the pigs are in Oregon? Or guide the knows where the pigs are. Let's talk$. I brew my own beer. Also any private rancher or Farmer that may have hogs. On their land that they need to getting rid of. We all love bacon in our freezer.

    I don't know about their distribution in OR, but I regularly hunt hog on family land in norcal. They are so common that my family has a depredation permit as they regularly cause problems for the ranch. I would guess their range would likely cover the south and east of the state.

    Yeah from what I hear they are on the southern border of OR. Nothing like down south as we have a little colder winter but am sure the population will grow. Good luck on your search and hope you find something.

    I read a press release by OR F&G a few years back that there was a very small herd living on private land east of Madras, locals shoot them on sight so it is not growing in size and my have been wiped out.

    According to an article in a recent NW Sportsman magazine what hogs there are in Oregon have concentrated mostly onto private land and are being eradicated from aircraft by the Oregon Wildlife Services (part of the Dept of Ag.) I believe the article stated an estimated 5000 in Oregon but that seems a little high.

    We do not want feral hogs up here.

    I know the good ole boys would love it for fun and easy shooting, but back in Oklahoma where I'm from (and Texas and a lot of other places), they have gotten out of hand, out of control, and cause A LOT of property damage along with tearing up crop fields.

    I figure it's only a matter of time til some fool picks up a couple of sows and lets them loose out in the sticks, but it's not something we should encourage.

    They are quite a pest down south.

    Still though, it would be nice for hunting if we had a population in the area.

    I am obviously not a farmer so I'm sure they would disagree with me.

    There is information on the location of wild hogs in Oregon on the ODFW website.
    http://www.dfw.state.or.us/conservationstrategy/invasive_species/feral_swine.asp
    The major feral swine activity in Oregon is generally located in near Madras, Maupin, Fossil, Spray and Mitchell —the hot bed of activity being a large circle around the Antelope area. http://www.dfw.state.or.us/wildlife/hot_topics/swine.asp

    Hog hunting in Oregon is a well kept secrete which is kind of ironic. Hogs destroy deer habitat. You would think the hunters would want them gone, yet the few that know keep it a secrete for their own hunting pleasure. You would also think the landowners that have feral hogs would be waving a huge banner to get rid of them.

    If you find out let me know! My antelope contact who lives in Prineville was telling me he had hogs near Ochoco Forest. I went up in July but all I saw was a tiny yote and a pretty 3x3 buck.

    This taken from the ODFW website.

    Female feral swine is collared as part of a research and monitoring study. The yellow banding is to alert hunters that the pig has a radio collar.
    And is worth double points..... lol

    Speaking of, what's the word with the Ochocos? I know they got burnt up pretty bad this summer.

    That's my info as well, we must visit the same Feed Store! I drove through the Ochoco 2 weeks back. The place was dry as a popcorn fart. Pigs need lots of water, even in Australia, the super wild pigs gravitate to water.

    I stayed near the water holes but I did not see hoof nor hair. It was also over 110 degrees out so I imagine they were tucked up into a cae or deadfall somewhere

    If you found no spoor then they were not there, pigs are notorious for leaving tracks, hair and poop

    While hogs DO exist they can be nearly as elusive as something that may (or may not exist) IE another large, hairy creature but regardless after 30 + years of hiking, hunting, camping, fishing, partying and everything outdoors I have seen only one hog killed and that was just North of Redmond. I agree they are out there but like the article in the magazine I read most are on private land and not particularly accessible.
