Feral Hog Hunting Regulations 

Hunting and Shooting Feral Hogs

On private land:
Feral hogs may be killed or trapped year-round, day or night, by a landowner or anyone with the landowner’s permission. Hunters do not need a hunting license to kill feral hogs on private land, but anyone who has had his or her hunting license revoked may not hunt them. All general regulations for hunting safety should be observed.

On Wildlife Management Areas:
Hunters may kill feral hogs on WMAs during daylight hours during any open hunting season. They must use a weapon that is legal for that season.

  • During special WMA permit hunts, only permit holders may be on the WMA.
  • Feral hogs killed on WMAs can be taken for processing or left where they were shot.
  • Hunters may not use dogs, bait or traps to hunt feral hogs on WMAs.
  • Hunters may not hunt hogs at night on WMAs.
