Wild pig hunting in MN

Recommended Posts

I heard that there was a game farm somewhere by LittleFalls that has wild boar hunting. I can not find any information on the web. If anyone has any information on where and who I could contact I would really appreciate it. Thanks

You'd have to check but I don't believe wild pigs are even legal on 'game farms' in MN. If you do ever see one - shoot it! ...after positively identifying it of course.

on a KFAN outdoors episode a few weeks ago, Captain was saying there was a report of a group of hogs that were loose in Western MN; and no one has seen them for awhile in the area; and now they are worried that they have moved elsewhere and expanding...

There is a "gamefarm" that had pighunts up near little falls but it is somewhat of a canned hunt. The hogs are planted a day or so before you "hunt" them. The property is fenced in but fairly large with ample cover for the hogs to roam. I did one of these hunts up there but it was nearly 20 years ago and I don't know if they are still in operation. If I could recall the name of the ranch I would post it. Might want to try one of the area forums that includes little falls and inquire there.

if there is such a thing as a "game Farm" that runs pigs ya better hope they don't get out. Several states are really having problems with them tearing up the land. As mentioned...see em????...kill em!!!!!

What? I'm from the Canby area, and I never heard about it. Was it actually Wild Hogs, or just hogs escaped from a farm? Crazyness.

They did a spread about it in the startrib not to long ago. Some seem to think they were potbellies that were ditched after they became to big to be cute around the house.

i know all about the pigs in the ortonville area,they are potbellies. i have been shooting them for 3 years now.it all got started by one land owner beening mad at the neibghor and turning them loose in a revine to screw up there deer hunting.it didnt seem to work they multiplyed and then moved across the road to my revine.they wiped out 5 acres of corn and i couldnt figure out what was doing it one night i was bowhunting and saw them shoot 5 ran out of arrows when the corn got out we shoot 2 more.last year i shot 4 more and last winter coyote hunting we shot 7 more then the dnr stuck there nose into it.i wont go there not happy with how it got handled so i will leave that alone.as far as them moveing by canby i would say no not the bunch from ortonville they are still out there.the dnr didnt want anybody shootong them but i still shoot everyonr that i get a chance to.if nobody belives me i have pictures to prove it.

Why wouldn't the DNR want you to shoot them?????! Why not let private citizens help get rid of them, instead of spending big bucks trapping them or hiring sharp shooters??

I've only read about it but it has something to do with the perception that you can't get them all via hunting and that when they are hunted they are more difficult to trap. I believe the DNR here and in WI believe trapping is the most effective solution. Given the risk of disease and the damage they do I would think it would be a top priority to get rid of them ASAP.

that is ridiculous they wont let you shoot them, should have a open season any means of getting rid of them

With all the issues with feral hogs in other states it's odd the MN DNR would even chance letting that happen?

      Your welcome to join me anytime. I still hunt and fish with a lot of the same guys that no longer frequent FM or HSO.    I have reduced a lot of my content also because it’s not worth the hassle to type up detailed reports or stories any more so I know exactly how you feel.   I have a good network via PM’s and reports that my circle doesn’t share on the forums etc. I’m not in Facebook either but my PM’s are always open lol   sure do miss the glory days on these forums.

      Otter was one of the first shelter to get the insulated material right to reduce condensation and frost build up. Eskimo is right behind there now with their newer Stormsheild Fabric on their Outbreak XD series.

      Thanks guys! I hope someday you guys can get things back to where it once was. And if would get there I and I'm sure others will be back! She was a blast in its heydays for sure !! Wanderer maybe with some luck we can someday share a blind together. I can see through your stuff you have the same passion for waterfowl as me. 👍 RundRave really like to join you sometime in SD to do a little pheasant hunting your intel from out there and pics have always kept smile on my face 😀  Smurfy you were always there to make me smile on a poopty day !  Wish I could of met more of you guys over the years but  unfortunately it didn't happen but I'm on the ice at least 4-5  days a week so you never no! Most of the ST Cloud crew I fish with quite often so I'll see you guys soon.  A few questions have been related to me going on Facebook with my stuff joining some groups that's a strong no! I'm not on Facebook tried it once not for me. Some of you may see me posting on some other sites  and a few other places I'm working on 😉

      if anyone wants to know how censored it was, its me. i try my best to post fishing trips and adventures and in various other threads just to jump start them....especially in the food threads.    my trouble, even though i grew up in richmond and still live in cold spring 99% of my hunting and fishing is up in itasca county so giving reports around this area is not much. pathetic i know......still havent been on any local lakes......maybe after this next trip north.........hopefully ice gets thicker to drive out.   i do know one thing even though i didnt real add much value to this areas threads i sure enjoyed all the guys that did post things...even learned some. like Ozzie said i dont and wont do facebook. i sure hope you guys reconsider. i did go to a few G-T-G'S  but that was before i got to know some of you's better.

      I guess my main reason for staying and reporting and checking in daily for any action or topics is that I am not on Facebook and have no want to be on there.  I like this site as I feel I get to know people even though many have left and I never really "met" them.  I get it why it is not frequented often by many as there is not as much talk and when there is it used to get censored, or you get different opinions that were not always delightful!  I will most likely remain around giving my simple reports or thoughts with the hope that maybe, just maybe, this site can go back to half of what it was at one time!  Take care on your next adventure IceHawk and hope to hear from you occasionally!!!  Good Luck

      I know exactly what your feeling Chris, and don't blame you a bit. I still pop in from time to time to see mothergoose's trophys and have a good laugh to break the day up on break at work. But to put time and effort in a detailed fish report, tackle review, or even chit chat isn't my game plan around here anymore. Helping with contributing to contests, helping with GTG's, Fishing Report Club, sorry we tried, we really have been left high and dry. Time for new blood to step up and put their time in. My last post was censored, past ones have been edited as a play game by admin, so I moved on.  It's almost comical now what's left here for content 😆.   @Wandererthere are great reports on FB if you know where to look. Corey, a not long ago member and his friends are alive and well with....    "What's Working Now"

      I’m coming up to my 14 year anniversary with this site, and back then was certainly FM’s heyday! 2020 was probably the least active I’ve been on this site by far! I still post reports on all my trips, and chime in whenever I can, but yeah, I just don’t have the interest or urge to come here like I did back then. I won’t ever stop coming here though. And who knows? Maybe this site will experience a renaissance one day!
