Most Common Question People Have:

Where can I hunt feral hogs?

 

Answer:

Information and specific locations about where feral hogs can be found within the Lincoln National Forrest can be found on their website at www.fs.usda.gov/main/lincoln

Here are a few places that I am aware of where hogs can be found:  near Milnesand, from southern edge of Roosevelt County southward along the caprock to Eddy County, from Texas line north along the Pecos river to the southern portion of De Baca County and in the Lincoln National Forrest. 

Feral hogs are a non-game, non-protected species like coyotes and skunks, click here to read more...
