The only place you would find them in MN is probably at a fenced game farm. I have heard that Wisconsin has some, otherwise you have to head south to find them. Are you looking to hunt them?

I don't think wild hogs are allowed in MN because of concerns with them escaping. I know there are some in Wisc - escapees from game farms!!!

Game farms should be banned!! The potential to screw up the natural enviroment by spreading CWD or accidental release of harmful exotics should trump the rights of a few individuals.

I believe Cabelas has wild boar jerky. If your looking for a hunt, try the U.P. I have heard there were some bigguns up there, and not really far away.

There is a game farm in Montour(sp?), IA that has boar.

Never been there, but I know a couple guys that have.

They shot pigs.

That is about all I know

Douglas County,WI has some you can hunt. All you need is a small game license. Try emailing WI DNR to find out where they are having problems with them. Some people say they have seen them on the MN side but I haven't seen any sign around Holyoke but I haven't been out in the woods that much lately but will be soon for bear hunting. That would be a nice surprise to see one come into the bait pile.

      was out tonight, 6-8 in out from the dnr landing. wheelers and a couple perms out. still open water out in front of Peters resort on the south shore. It starts out a couple hundred yards from shore and runs to the north- northwest for a long ways. some of the spots that were open earlier this week have skimmed, be careful out there if you see different looking ice stop and check!!

      Thanks for the report--about what I figured, which is why I stayed down here in Iowa this weekend. I am fairly optimistic about getting on the ice in southeast or south central Minnesota next weekend; whether I am on a lake around Faribault or Waseca, or one of my old backwater haunts on the Mississippi remains to be seen. Maybe Clear Lake, Iowa. Whatever I do I will post my results.

      9-11am was best time both days.

      If you are willing to go a little further into Canada, I would recommend Hollinshead Resort, a few hours north of Thunder Bay.  The resort is the only one on the lake, and in June offers excellent Walleye Fishing, as well as some dandy Northern Pike.  It's somewhere you can drive to as well.

      Caught 20-23 gills and 6 crappies. Fun day on the 10 inches of ice. The whole lake was close to the same where I cut all the holes out and around

      I’m still seeing very random thicknesses all over.  In the past few days I’ve been from St. Cloud to Winnie and have seen vehicles on the ice and open water on the same lake. I’m in Little Falls.  Tonight I checked 2 lakes NW of town.  Both had people fishing.  One looked to be safe for wheeler travel and the other, very near it, still had an open lead and you could see the difference between the first sheet of ice and the second. I hope it doesn’t get covered with snow anytime soon so we can still tell where the changes are. Be safe. Bring floatation and picks.  And don’t drive yet! Ruh ro....

      I was on a small north metro lake today and found between 2.5 and 4 inches. One of the spud bar holes I punched started spewing water up so definitely needs a little more time.

      I was out on Round Lake last night (12/9/17) for the first time of the year. I was very surprised to see 12 inches of ice. I checked a few other holes and found anywhere from 11-12 inches. Keep in mind, I was about 300 yds out from the southeast shoreline. I’m not sure if it’s consistent across the middle of the lake. I only saw one group with a snowmobile. All other groups walked out, at least where was.  Anyone have any reports for ice thickness on other lakes in the area?

      Alot of open water pockets on bigger lakes still, some people out on cannon on 3 inches about 60 yards or less from shore.
