    Since we hijacked anothere guys thread. I thought I continue that conversation about feral hogs in WA state.

    Anyone know of any? And, are there any regs on it? It's almost worth a trip to TX or AL just to do a hunt. As fun as it would be in WA, our weather is nice enough year round to make it a problem. At least on the Olympic penninsula.

    Any comments welcome.

    I have heard stories and tall tales for ever on this. You know,a friend of a cousin's neighbor's uncle......

    Never,NEVER have I seen one picture of a dead ,feral hog in this state.

    Everything said about feral hogs in WA have turned out to be an escaped pig from someone's farm or yard. The closest area that I know of with feral hogs is Oywhee Co., ID...SW Idaho. The Idaho State Department of Wildlife website had been reporting on them. Last I heard...it's been about a year...you only needed a hunting license, and there was no daily limit.

    Last official report to WDFW about feral pigs was in 2008:


    As for pictures, here is one supposedly taken in Montesano back in 2001.


    My opinion is bigfoots (bigfeet?) like bacon, just like me.
