    I have been trying to figure this out. I know they are out there, but really patch with low numbers. I would try down south in the Athens area. Zoliski state park, may not be the correct spelling, is known to have some. Google that park and some Ohio forums will pop up and give some information. Good luck and let me know if you ever shoot or see one.

    That was taken from the DNR page in Ohio. http://www.dnr.state.oh.us/Home/hun...arHuntingInformation/tabid/18847/Default.aspx

    Freedom been there done that the map is generic and tells nothing of where public land is in tose areas. ODNR can't tell me where these supposed wild pig even are. Also I don't want to drive across the state to come up empty that's why I'm researching here and other forums to see if there is anyone in these areas that can point me to the hogs.

    It specifically states what counties that there have been hog sightings. That should help narrow your search very well. It also states that there are few hogs on the state lands. From what I can gather through a brief search, your best bet is to start trying to find people with farmland that are beginning to have a hog problem. That will take some leg work. Now if you were in Texas, the leg work would consist of you stepping out of your front door. The population has not "exploded" in Ohio as of yet so you will have to really do some homework. My fist guess would be to locate some Co/Op feed stores in the south eastern areas of Ohio and give them a phone call. I have found through the years that they have their fingers on the pulses of all farmlands and they would be able to help you find places that are having emerging Hog Problems.
