Wild pig hunting in MN

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.

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

      Last year was the first time that I remember seeing any plowed roads out of the west end. I agree about chains making a huge difference on ATVs, but not if the snow is deep. Sleds ride on the snow. ATVs need to get down to the ice or packed snow.   It has been a while since I have heard of any guides setting out sleepers. If one did, they would need to do some good advertising to make it worth it.

      First year I put it out I went 3 miles out from the closest plowed road.  Used the lake snowmobile trail for a few miles, then packed my own trail before dragging it out.  Slush could be a problem but you could do the same thing (pack a trail with your sled the night before and let it freeze overnight).  Portables are much easier to move, but not as comfortable as a wood house.   Vermilion Ice Conditions - heard there was still open water on Big Bay Thursday and Friday.  Not sure if I will go out 7 days from now.

      Happy Holidays Muskies !! I've been off sight for a long while. My Son died in July at 45 from a heat stroke while working in Knoxville Tn. I've had a hard time with that.  We did not make our fall trip to Rainy Lake, and the effects of it all are felt now.  How was the fall ?  A friend with a guide service there told me I didn't miss anything, and the lack of post tend to support that. We appreciate all post and fishing chatter shared on this forum and especially all you share. Best wishes for a great winter. CHEERS to all !!
