Hunting feral swine in Oregon

In Oregon, it is illegal to sell, or offer for sale, a hunt for feral swine on public or private lands.

In general, there is little opportunity to hunt feral swine. There are still relatively few in the state (between 2,000-5,000 pigs) and most observations have been on private land. If you do see a feral swine while out hunting for another animal and you have landowner’s permission, you can take the animal. You will be doing wildlife and habitat a favor.

Hunters looking for swine will see obvious signs in suitable areas such as in drainages with water or springs e.g. rootings, wallows and rubs in these areas.Photos of feral swine damage.

Specific locations of feral swine are hard to come by as they are mostly on private lands and they move around. The major feral swine activity in Oregon is generally located in near Madras, Maupin, Fossil, Spray and Mitchell —the hot bed of activity being a large circle around the Antelope area.

ODFW does not have a list of private land owners that are willing to allow hunters on their lands to control feral swine.
