Hog Hunting Regulations

(1/4) > >>

I'm a bit confused. I will read here and there that we need the hog hunting regulations changed. What is it that is being needed? Hogs can be hunted year round on private land with any weapon, day or night.

Public land is an entirely different issue. Can anyone clarify?

From the MDWFP Website
Hours/Season: Landowners and leaseholders may hunt nuisance animals year-round at any time of day or night with no weapon/caliber restrictions on property titled in their name or otherwise owned, or leased by them.

From what I read folks are wanting to hunt them year round on public land also but I don’t see that happening anytime soon if at all.

matt steed:
From what I understand, on state management areas you can't hunt squirrel's with broadhead. So therefore you can't go hog hunting during squirrel only season on state management areas.

 What most guys are doing during turkey season is actually hog hunting because they can legally have broadheads and hogs can be harvested during any open game season, except squirrel because it's illegal to have broadheads.

Matt is correct. On a state or federal WMA, hunting small game with a bow and arrow that incorporates any point except a blunt is illegal.

On State WMA and federal, you can only hunt hogs with the legal weapon IN season.

Basically, bow hunters are shut out of public land hog hunting in the month of Feb.unless they want to shoot a hog with a blunt.

That'd be awesome, to be able to hog hunt in February on public!.

Question, does a Judo point count as a blunt?
