    Default May take a chance on an Out of State feral pig hunt

    Chris and I are about to take a 2nd poke at feral pigs in Camp Verde. We're heading up on Sunday, April 7th. I don't have high hopes as there has not been much chatter about feral pigs in Camp Verde for over a year. Because of this I started to research surrounding areas.

    Iíve been researching other hunt areas for the elusive feral pigs and have been drawn to California, New Mexico and Texas. I may plan a trip to southern San Antonio and try to bag a 300lb+ pig there.

    Pigs do not recognize state lines, so it is fair to assume that California pigs will wander into AZ. Research as lead me to Havasu National Wildlife Refuge. There is video of pigs caught on hunting trail cameras. Not sure if they are real, as they look like scruffy farm pigs.



    No permit is required to hunt at Havasu NWR but another web site shows that they currently do not allow feral pig hunts at the refuge.

    I have the area mapped on Google Maps. The link above references the Topock Marsh, which has road access. I sent an email to the person in charge with the refuge. Letís see what the response is. This may be a good place to try next time. Itís a 4 hour drive, so itís best reserved for a two or three day hunt.

    Look at this site and map.

    They track feral pig activity. Notice the SE tip of Arizona. Their map doesnít zoom in very far. I went to google maps and pulled up the same area. There is a road that will take us right to the New Mexico state line.

    We can hunt there, too. No license or tag required. This is a 5.5 hour drive from Glendale. Also a 2-3 day weekend hunt.

    Of the videos Iíve seen, we may be in for a fight, no matter which state we travel to. NM does NOT have a magazine capacity restriction and the use of ďanyĒ centerfire rifle is valid, including ARs and AKs. Iím contacting them regarding the use of a suppressor.

    Texas also does NOT have a magazine capacity restriction, also allows ďanyĒ centerfire rifle, AND has recently allowed the use of suppressors.

    A WPA (wildlife management area) permit is suggested and is valid in 51 WMA's in the state. $48 annually, and we can hunt in some nice places without the need of paying crazy $$ for guide service. WPA's have an abundance of animals.

    I have a few rifles to sight in, too. Let me know when you're going. I may tag along.

    As for the suppressor. legally, you'll have to fill out the paperwork with BATFE to get your tax stamp first. Once the approval is in hand, you can machine it.
