Trying to pin them down so to speak. There are alot of them in this region. I know that they are causing problems both North and South West of the Timberon area. Trying to get a feel for what areas they are currently being a problem. Hope they don't hit the Timberon area as they can trash and area in a heartbeat.

That's a good thing. I know they are within 20 or so miles of there, straight line. Really starting to be a pain in some areas.

Thanks for the warning. I'll spread the word here. Word usually gets around quickly.

Thanks for the heads-up mtncat. How are they causing problems? What should we be looking for?

They will trash an area in a heartbeat, rooting around, messing up gardens and fields. I would look for areas look like they have been tilled under etc.
I was wrong on my distance. Recently got a pretty much confirmed report of them in the Pasture Ridge area, that is about 8 miles away from Timberon. Haven't seen any sign in the High Rolls area yet but have seen some Javelina, almost as bad.

The USDA issued a bulletin on feral hog population across the US.
It's scary reading. The bulk of infestation in NM is the San Andres mountain & to the east.
The USDA bulletin says the hogs a variety of nasty diseases.
Good hunting!!

Default Feral Pig hunts

You're in the right part of the state. All up and down the Pecos river East side Carlsbad~Roswell), South and west sides of Sierra Blanca/Lincoln Nat'l Forest(eastern areas good in early spring), along Rio Penasco. There are many up near Clayton/Sedan area and some farmers allow hunting early spring and not after the row crop get's up knee high or more. The majority of good hunting now is down south during the cold months. Winter wheat fields and peanut/cane/corn fields are loved by the hogs and the hogs are not enjoyed by the farmers.
There are some regulatory changes afoot from the NM fish and fur agency so you might check w/them before you go chasing. At last fall's last hunt you did not need any permits or certifications from them to hunt on federal lands.
Good hunting and save a few for me, 1903a3

Probably very true, but a hunter is doing the NM environment a FAVOR by slaying feral hogs. They don't belong here, or anywhere for that matter, and are causing huge damage in some parts of the country.
I think javelinas are tasty when cooked right though..

How nice of the hunter (and the rancher) for doing the environment a favor AFTER they exterminated all the natural predators that would keep hog populations in check.... And how nice of you to tell us where other living beings belong!
