    Hunting this alien invader is encouraged.

    Feral hogs damage habitat, contaminate water and compete with native wildlife. Because of the negative impact this non-native intruder causes, residents and nonresidents legally may hunt feral hogs year-round without a license. General hunting rules still apply—such as obtaining permission if hunting on private land, no hunting with the aid of an artificial light and no discharging of firearms within 150 yards of an occupied dwelling.

    Read the New Mexico Wildlife article “Hogs gone wild”.Icon of Volume-56 Number-4 Winter 2011-2012 Volume-56 Number-4 Winter 2011-2012

    Feral hogs should not be confused with javelina, which look similar but are a protected game species. Javelina are smaller than feral hogs and do not have a tail. Javelina also have a white stripe of hair near the shoulders and neck, giving them the common name collared peccary.
    How did I miss this post? This sounds awesome. I am not stuck on going to Texas, I just want some hog meat in the freezer at the lowest price possible. I need to do more research on New Mexico hog!

    Don't believe everything you read on the internet.

    I'm confused now. Doing some research, it looks like it is always open season on hogs in New Mexico and the only restriction I see is no night hunting. Am I missing something?

    Maybe the fact that there aren't very many pigs in New Mexico? Especially on public land. I've heard of a few people killing one here and there, but if you are actively hunting for pigs in New Mexico on public land you are going to spend a long time to find one.

    If you have any contacts in Oklahoma there's plenty of good hog hunting here. I hunt on a 110 acre piece that belongs to a guy I know from church and it's crawling with them. I killed a sow on Saturday with my new 300 BO build

    The few "HOGS" that are here are in someones corn crib or wearing lipstick. Sometime back a helicopter hunt was done, according to a reliable source, and most of them removed. There may be some near the Oklahoma-Texas panhandle or down in the SE corner of the state. If they, "feral pigs", were in abundance anywhere in New Mexico I would be hunting for them instead of sitting here at this keyboard.

    Why would a person have to pay a trespass fee to kill a feral species like a hog? I've never encountered a landowner that would expect me to pay a trespass fee to shoot some coyotes or prairie dogs. I'm sure they are out there, but I have yet to encounter one. They apparently don't want to get rid of them that bad.

    Have you been to Texas lately?

    I can hook you up with some places for some pay to play predator hunting and prairie dog shooting. Wasn't there a guy from North Dakota trying to promote a coyote hunting prairie dog shooting operation a while back?

    That's what I was getting at, two different worlds. I wonder how that business venture turned out for him.

    There are places here that charge a trespass fee to ride your ATV. Or you can join a club and pay dues and they pay to lease places to go ride your ATV.

    Very limited options on just going out for a hike without trespassing on someone's land.

    You can always advertise your hog removal services on craigslist.

    This one is actually a landowner wanting to bargain for someone doing some work for hog hunting.

    You need to get a suppressor on that bad boy! This is what I built for my boys to use when we went.

    That's the plan, hopefully the HPA passes so I don't have to wait a year and pay for the tax stamp to get it.

    I agree. I just got two a few weeks back. They were not legal in Iowa until April of last year and I ordered them a day later. Took 9 months to get the stamp. It is fun. The blackout with 220 grain subs is stupid quite, but I hear they don't kill well and most still shoot supers.

    Ah Texas if your hunting is so great, I hear you have elk, (and kudu and tigers and bears) and public lands are so awful why do I see hordes of your license plates going up and down I-25 to hunt CO, WY, and MT

    My post was only a suggestion. You know an option other than Texas.

    There are hogs in NM. I figure it the NMDGF is setting out traps for pigs, they have to be there.

    You must see these plates on your way to Texas, enjoy your stay, we love the visitors here.
    Even if you choose not to decide, you still have made a choice.

    Looking at my best friends plates in my driveway right now, love the people and the food, just don't care for the game management regulations and the public lands sentiments Texas won't be getting my hunting dollars.
