    Default Feral Pigs

    I need some bacon. What better way to get bacon that to kill it?

    Im thinking I will be spending some time this summer looking for feral pigs.

    I'm up for a hunt! I'm in the process of building another AR in 458 Socom to combat Hogzillas. In the meantime, I have 2 others to use for these skinny feral pigs.

    This is interesting. You are NOT required to have a hunting license, stamp, or tag to hunt Feral Pigs. The only restriction is that this game may only be taken in the outlying strips of Arizona. AZ Game and Fish point out specifically 13B, as there has been sightings there and they "encourage" the taking of Feral Pigs, especially sows. They also point out that Javalinas / Collared Peccaries are NOT considered Feral Pigs. Those do require a hunting license and a drawn tag.

    13B is FAR! It's the most North Western corner of AZ. So, who's up for a hunt?

    =================

    Feral Pigs

    In recent years, feral pigs have been sighted near Mud Mountain and Black Rock Mountain. Very little is known about the numbers, habitat use and behavior of these animals, but it appears they are transitory between Mud Mountain and Black Rock spending much of the summer months on Black Rock and winter months near Mud Mountain. They appear to be closely tied to water sources in these areas, and track sign is common.

    You are encouraged to attempt to harvest a feral pig in 13B. Keep in mind that hunters who have tried to harvest a feral pig have had mixed results because of the limited number of animals and a quick weekend trip to hunt feral pigs may not be successful.
    If you choose to hunt these animals please keep the following in mind:

    1. No hunting license is required to hunt these animals.
    2. Harvest of sows is encouraged to limit population growth and adverse impacts to turkey populations (nest predation = no poult production) and wildlife habitat.
    3. This population is feral and is not actively managed by the Game and Fish Department.
    4. A packet will be available through the Arizona Stirp BLM office in late 2010 related to feral pig hunting. This packet can be received by calling 435-688-3200.

    Off-road travel restrictions, wilderness access, and other public land use restrictions remain in effect. Please contact the Arizona Strip BLM @ 435-688-3200 for information about off-road travel. In essence off-road travel is not allowed in any area of the Arizona Strip.

    I can do sun/mon. I have a rotating day off, but usually can take a vacation.
