 Hogs on Wildlife Management Areas.

 The AGFC encourages hunters to shoot all feral hogs they see on WMAs. Hunters may kill feral hogs on WMAs during daylight hours during any open hunting season as long as they are using a weapon legal for that season. Only permit holders may hunt feral hogs during special permit hunts. Feral hogs killed on WMAs can be taken for processing or left where they were shot. Hunters may not use dogs, bait or traps to hunt feral hogs on WMAs and may not hunt at night.

 The following WMAs have particularly high hog numbers. They may suffer extreme loss of habitat for deer, turkey and other wildlife if feral hogs are not eradicated:
