Hogs in Kentucky


My dad and I were talking about the hogs in Kentucky this morning so I thought I'd write a little today on the situation. I can't believe the high number of hog sightings going on around the state. Just this fall, a friend of mine killed two about 3 miles from my house in Bullitt County. They looked to be of the razorback variety. When my son and I were hunting in LBL in October, we ran across tons of hog sign including a nice pile of sticky el crapo I had the pleasure of planting my boot right in while scouting. Growing up on a hog farm, I know first hand the total destruction that they can cause. After talking to some people in Nelson and Bullitt County, it sounds like Bernheim forest is home to at least a couple of thousand hogs at this point. I have also heard of large numbers around Fort Knox and other large pieces of property all around the state. I have heard numerous experts say that it is totally impossible to get rid of these hogs and that a population can double within 6 months. If that's the case, the future looks full of hog meat in our freezers and non-stop action trying to rid ourselves of these destructive creatures.

Have you seen any hogs in Kentucky?? Comment below.

I have not seen any but I did hear some about 30 yards from me in the tree line. I was hunting about 30 miles west of ft. knox.
