Default Wild hogs in IL?

Anyone hear of this? I heard last year that wild hogs were spotted entering the state... IDNR doesnt seem to have acknowledged it.

Hog hunting. Just what we need to bring more non-residents in on hunting leases...

No offense to you outta-staters. I can't say too much because if I had no place to hunt here I'd go to another state too. It's just frustrating because it's getting harder for us to hunt where we've been hunting for years due to farmers leasing ground out to out of state hunters.

The topic does put me in the mood for some bacon though I'll keep an eye out for piggies.

I go south to Bowhunt Hogs a couple times a year in the off season-Tx or Ok. & trust me. We don't want them in Ill. or Iowa.

I know that some counties in WI have substantial populations of feral pigs. When you look at it so does Kansas, Missouri, and Michigan. Its the old saying if you don't have hogs yet just wait you will some day. They are amazingly adaptable to just about any climate or terrain.
