    I've heard pigs are in kentucky, where! I want to hunt these boogers, and would like to know where I may be able to contact a landowner about this.

    Many thanks y'all!!

    I read there is a large population in Daniel Boone National forest for public hunting. There is NO nighttime hunting for them allowed.

    Check the Western parts near hop town and such. There are many hunting grounds there. I personally don't live in KY but have heard of people hunting various animals down there.

    The Kentucky Fish and Wildlife web site says year round hunting, maybe give them a call for areas that are infested, 1-800-858-1549 ph.



    In Kentucky, reports of wild pigs were relatively uncommon until the 1990’s when sporadic reports began to emerge from the Dale Hollow Lake area of Cumberland County and the Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area in McCreary County. Today, verified sightings and documented hunter kills have confirmed that their range has expanded considerably in the Commonwealth and is no longer restricted to two localized concentrations.

    I looks at that, sadly they don't keep areas logged as they don't condone hunting them,
    As it drives them to be nocturnal or spread. So they say.
