This will make some people smile!

Hog hunting in New York got interesting this past week. My partner and I hunt a preserve in New York every year and we just got back Tuesday afternoon. Massachusetts has a small number of hogs, very small and we wouldn't know they are even there except that one got hit by a car on a local highway last year. Now then, while hunting our favorite preserve Colbrook Hunting Preserve, a hunter brought in a wild hog, shot just a bit South of Syracuse. It was a sow, weighing in at 225 lbs. and it had a litter of piglets it was nursing. The hunter caught all but one of the piglets and come to find out, there are quite a few more wild swine there as well.
Some believe they are spreading up from the South and some think they got loose from the preserves, either way, they are wild and breeding like, like, well, like swine do!

I blasted my year's pork with a 180 gr. HP fired from a Ruger GP-100 357 magnum revolver at twenty yards, right in the head, just below the ear and made mashed potatoes out of everything ol pork chops was thinkin' about.

Next year we'll go back and I think it will be either a longbow hunt or a flintlock hunt.

Re: This will make some people smile!

Makes us hunters smile, but I bet the DEC is cringing at their desks!
When I spoke with a couple guys from DEC about hogs, they are under the impression that there's VERY few in state...I'm thinking that's not so much the case anymore...
If you're finding them near Syracuse, and they're in MA, I'm betting there's a heck of a lot more than anyone is aware of...
MY rule of thumb is that if you're seeing one or two, there's at least 10 more behind them you can't see...
Would love a shot at them myself....were they on public lands?\

Yes. The one that was shot just South of Syracuse was on a mountain top and I can find out where if I call my buddy Dave that runs ColdBrook Preserve. He knew the fellow that shot the pig.
The one that was hit by the car was hanging around the Oxbow area of the town of Shirley, MA. The Oxbow is all water and swamp, hell ofa place for them to be and a nice area for deer and moose too.

Re: This will make some people smile!

I'd be huntin hogs every waking moment if I knew where to find them...
I hafta keep it to public lands or places where it doesn't cost money to hunt, other than basic travel...
The joys of working for hourly wages...I miss being self employed!
Anyone in the neighborhood that want some company hunting hogs or yotes?
I'm most always game!

Call David Perry at Cold Brook Preserve, or just go out and see him on ColdBrrok Road off Rte 281 South on the Preble/Homer line. The hog may still be hanging, as it was a bit frozen and he was waiting for it to thaw before skinning it out and packaging it for the hunter.
If ya want I can pass on dave's cell phone and you can call him directly.
