I only know of one place near where I used to live that had feral hogs, but there are none to be hunted. Thank goodness they stay in Tennessee! The only place you could hunt them is maybe on a private fenced hunting operation, but who wants to do that?

Spike,

Sorry fo the late reply. I live in Alexandria, outside of DC, but I honestly don't know how far the Dan River is from where I live, and whereabouts the hogs are in relation to that. I'll have to find out if you can hunt them year round in VA - are they listed as s "nuisiance species" like coyote? If so, I'm all over it.

Do you ever hunt them?

Pat,

As I understand it, the elk "herd" in VA is in the extreme southwestern part of the state, and the elk drift over from KY. They're not regulated in a special manner as they are out West, and you can get one with a regular VA big game tag and check as you would a whitetail deer.
