    Default Feral Pig Law

    What's the new law on feral pigs? I saw a newspaper article about the new laws that take effect today and it mentioned one on feral pigs, but it didn't give any details on what it was about.
    A well-regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

    I can't find anything new on it anywhere. Nor have I heard anything new. I knew there was some discussion on mandatory sentences for transporting them, but haven't heard anything solid on that .

    Sow and pigs kept one of my wifes elderly clients in her home for a couple of weeks. She was absolutely afraid to go out unless someone was around. I offered to take care of the problem for her but her kin folk wouldn't allow it. They wanted no one hunting the property. One of the neighbors got a look at the sow and figure she would go about 250 pounds.

    I know there is some really crazy reactions to feral hogs all across the board. Some trying to eradicate them and neighbors trying to keep them handy at the same time for fee hunting. If it had not been for the drought I would probably have had some on my place this year. Problem is growing fast.Jimmie

    I saw on the news last week or so that they were making the fine stiffer for importing them.

    Where are the pigs at in Kentucky and how far do they spread in a year?

    Lbl but I think hunting is banned there due to importing. I've heard Dale hollow and near the OH river too.

    The new law is a person can get up to 1 year in jail if caught releasing a pig into the wild.

    It's not so much if you win or lose - it's how you shoot the flaming arrow while riding a camel.

    So it didn't become mandatory, afraid of that. Everything I had heard before was mostly gossip about it. Be better if it was not left up to a judges discretion.

    The hunting of feral pig is legal in the LBL during any hunting season for other critters. Good luck finding them if they still exist there. They had hired a specialist to rid the place of them since some jackasses kept hauling them in.

    And how far do they spread in a year? Good question! From what I can observe so far, a young sow leaves to establish her territory once she becomes pregnant. We just don't know how far she will travel before that litter is born. So far about 4 miles. Thats the furthest from the main population I have heard of so far. I see one set of hog tracks a year here on my place so far. They come and go with whatever food source. Jimmie
