Default NY Wild Boar

Found this article on another forum. Quite dissappointing news. Does anyone in any other states have wild boars? If so, what do you think of them? Any help is appreciated.

Troutman,
I shot one this year. They are getting out of hand. Haven't seen any this deer season, but the bait will be ready for Jan. so I can have me some pork on the BA-BE

I huntS.E. Cortland Co., and was wondering if these hogs would make it down my way eventually. I wouldn't mind sticking a arrow in one sometime! But def. hate to see them overrun a woods. There's NO season on them, its yr. around game. If they hit my woods it'd give my wife more reason to complain about me spending more time hunting!!

I haven't seen any in Southern Madison County yet -

I kind of hope I do - While I wouldn't wish it on the farmers - I don't see it as anything but a good thing for me - unless they run deer out of the area?

I would like to see wild pigs here in Pa. Something for me to harvest and save some bucks on meat. I actually prefer ham over turkey. But it would be nice other than how fast they breed. They would dominate and destroy our animals food supplies. Not good for our wildlife here I do have to say. They eat anything they find.

I read that they can eat fawns and turkey eggs. That kinda sucks. I wouldn't mind shooting a family or two.

I wonder if there is any truth to the rumor that they are escapees from the "wildlife preserve" in Homer?

I heard the same thing.I live in Chenango County but I work in Cortland and some co-workers were telling me about the pigs.Is there any state land around that area? I would love to come up there and "give the DEC a hand" with the pig problem!!!

I believe that is where it started. There is another location where they said that the pigs got loose, but can't confirm for sure. I did confront the outfitters from Cold Brook at the Syracuse sports show 2-3 yrs ago with a pic from my game cam and they had no comment on the subject. Ont he other hand I didn't expect them to admit to it since the pigs are causing ten's of thousands of dollars worth of damage. Oh well, It's just anotheranimal I get to hunt year round.
