Hey guys,

Next week I'm heading down to Oregon (specifically Grant County) to get my Oregon carry permit. While I'm down there, I thought I'd try and scout out some areas for hog hunting in the near future.

Does anyone have any suggestions on where I should be looking?

I looked at the map here (http://www.huntwildpig.com/state-specifics/oregon-pig-hunting/) and I'm thinking the Jon Day Fossil Beds or the Ochoco National Forest might be a good place to look around.

Thanks for your help guys!

Latest reports are virtually no feral hogs are being found in Oregon. Sightings have I think mostly been in the SW and South Central parts of the state. Some recent news about helicopter hunting for feral pigs by the DNR. NW Firearms Forum has occasional discussions about.

Tehema County in Nor Cal has excellent hog hunting.

I have lived in Oregon my whole life and have never seen a feral hog anywhere! I hunt the Ochocos a lot and not even a sign... I was looking for a place to hunt them as well a while back and I could not find any info on where to hunt.

The duck and beaver hunting in Oregon is great, hog hunting not so much.

Above, National Feral Swine Distrubution map, (self updating) the blue is what you want. I moved from Texas to Iowa (for a job) and really mis hunting hogs on the weekends, or sometimes in the evenings. according to the map you might be in luck in Oregon. Bring a large caliber, and lots of ammo, Hogs don't usually hangout by themselves.

Thanks guys.

This was a bust. I didn't get a chance to do any scouting, and neither Holquim (Spelling?) or Grant county would fingerprint/photo me without an appointment, which could only be made after filling out the paperwork, and getting it processed (At least for Hoquim, Grant county didn't say anything about the paperwork, just that I needed to make an appointment, and there was nothing they could do for me.)

No hogs? Go to Wasco county and tell that to a cattle rancher and you might get popped in the nose.

I have seen and shot feral hogs here in S.W. Or.. They are not seen a lot though. I have spoken to a few others that have seen & or shot them. The best places to look are Jackson, Josephine & Curry Countys .Be vary carefull hunting these areas as YOU WILL NOT BE ALONE! This area is in the Green Triangle! THERE WILL BE GROWERS & L.E.O LOOKING FOR THEM! ALWAYS GET PERMISSION FROM LAND OWNER & STAY AWAY FROM ANYTHING THAT LOOKS LIKE IT COULD BE A GROW SITE! This is where preseason scouting &map work relly pays off. Asking around will help you find hogs & help you stay safe! Good luck, have fun & stay safe.

Hogs in Oregon are kept pretty tight lipped. This is because of the Govt view of mandatory extermination. If a landowner advertises they have hogs they just might receive a visit from the DFG. Also landowners are not allowed to charge to hunt hogs or offer any guided hunts for them. I have heard of hogs in eastern and south western Oregon but not in any large concentrations. If I find a place to hunt hogs here I will be all over it. Will I advertise it?? Probably not.

Thanks for the update.

Krupp, I appreciate the heads up. It would be my kind of luck to stumble across a grow or run into a LEO raid while hunting.
