Hog Hunting Seasons for WMAs and Heritage Preserves

Brought to you by:

Feral hog hunting on WMAs is permitted during any open season for game unless otherwise restricted (see specific WMAs). On WMA lands, weapons used to hunt hogs are limited to the weapons that are allowed for the current open season on each WMA. A hunting license and a WMA permit are required and hunters are required to wear a hat, coat or vest of solid international orange color while hunting. Hogs may not be transported alive. Hogs may not be hunted at night. On Special Hog Still Gun Hunts, weapons may include archery, crossbows, centerfire rifles, muzzleloading rifles, centerfire handguns and shotguns with slugs only except as specified for certain WMAs. For Special Hog Hunts with Dogs, no still or stalk hunting and only handguns permitted.
