Does any one know of (or heard of) where there might be hogs in Indiana? I am looking for a good off season or change of pace hunt?

I'd think given the damage they have done in other states the DOW or Game and fish would be willing to share that info with you.

Never kick a dead coyote, especially one that ain't dead when your gun is still in the kitchen. Just ask your favorite Yooper what will happen. But if its a bobcat in a 330 coni and you think he's dead,,,,,Think again.. And we know you were wearing less than your PJ's on the last one you shot !

I don't know of any significant numbers anywhere over there....I am next door in Ohio but hunt there every year. I'm sure my hunting buddy over there would have mentioned hogs if they were there. I would love to hunt them as well, but am not complaining that we do not have the large numbers doing damage that some states have.

I just bought my first fox pro and am getting into predator hunting. Maybe you should try that for off season?

We do some predator hunting but there are several guys in our area running dogs and that keeps the numbers fairly low and what remains is awful nervous to say the least. Someone had mentioned there might be hogs in Orange and Pike counties but I can't find anyone to substantiate that.

I wish I could help ya but I have a question in regards to hog hunting. I'm looking to shoot a 53 grain barnes triple shock out of my Ar....is that a heavy enough bullet? I'm headed to Lousiana in 2 weeks to do some clean up work on a ranch out there.

Sounds kinda light to me, but I have never shot a hog. I would imagine it will do that job as long as you do your part, I would probably stick with headshots. Specifically right in the ear hole if possible.

I am only 20 minutes from Orange County and probably 40 from Pike. I am from Martin County, and a few townships around me, like Rutherford's township supposedly has some, but haven't seen any. I hunt predator and turkeys in Knox.

There are hogs near the Medora area east of Beford. The area between these spots are getting a good population. They were released by a private owner years back, why the story changes depending on who tells it. Long story short they are there and there are some bigger hogs. I have walked the area and the damage is amazing to what they can do. My buddy used to hunt them, but is broken down body isn't able to run ridges anymore.
