Was gonna a couple years back - they had some about 30 miles east of Eau Claire. DNR guy and buds went out winter time and tracked em down and shot them. Haven't heard any reports about them in the area lately.

Would be a blast, I'll check the DNR HSOforum and see where reports of them have been coming in.

I got some pretty good info from the WI DNR as well, but was hoping to find someone with experience. It would be a blast can't wait to try it someday. If you do, please let me know how it went.

The DNR wants them gone.

They can also be found along the south shore.

A janitor at work shot one one year and gave me some meat to try out.

It was pretty good.

However, I hear they are nocturnal.

Anyone have a link to where they are along the south shore? I cannot find anything. I live about 15 miles south of Superior and would love to go looking for them, but Im not just gonna blindly walk thru the woods hoping to spot one....big foot might be easier to find.

Last I heard the south shore pigs got hungry and stacked up right along the fence at the dump in Superior. They shot them all. I hunt whitetail near where they initially escaped (north on Beck's Road off of HWY 13) and there's been no sign of them for a couple of years. It's easy to tell if they've been around because they dig up the ground like crazy looking for grubs to eat.

Wade, I'm on 13 next to Amnicon River Rd. 3 years ago they were plentiful 8-15 in a group, we took 6 off our land. As with NyQuiLlama we have not seen them since that winter, do have a few more wolves around now though too. Wonder if that helped erradicate them.

I don't hear about pig sightings around here anymore. But I do think you would have a better chance of finding a pig or big foot then you do a deer in Wi smile

    • I just purchased a used 20 gauge for my 14 year old daughter. I hunt mostly state land for pheasants. It is a 2 3/4 auto with interchangeable chokes. What size steel shot and choke tube would you recomend for her?
    • I just got back from a work trip to MI. I could not believe the difference in ground cover. We traveled all the way from Dearborn back to Bemidji heading through the U.P.  Most of MI had very little ground cover but WI was flush, green everywhere! I only got to check a few spots at rest areas but I never saw a thing. The ground was dry at most spots on the way home. I'm gonna go hit my spot tomorrow, hopefully it hasn't been picked yet!
    • love those when ya see them!!!
    • Took the kayak crappie fishing opening weekend and when calm always bring with the DSLR with. These turtles are glad the weather has finally consistently warmed up. I always find it funny seeing turtles stacked on top of each other and found a few along with multiple species which was nice.     
    • I was going to hunt wi this weekend but fishing musky with my fly rod is what I will do instead.  Good luck!!!!!!!
    • Anyone still at it?   not sure that i will get Isaac out anymore, will still ask these last few days.   Good luck everyone.
    • Haha, sounds like you have a good head on your shoulders and great perspective, Borch.  Plus, I think it's good to be upset about missing!  It motivates a guy to take more selective shots and make better shots.  My shot selection was ok, but my execution was not good.  I made a good shot at a stationary target, but the target was walking.  D-U-M, dumb!!!  Such is life!  Next year Morgan and I will shoot turkeys (as long as I can still get her out there).  
    • From what I read the idiot did not tell anybody....was asked to play in the World's and declined saying his wrists hurt so they made him go in and found the torn tendons...what a duffus.
    • It reminds me if the first year I took my son turkey hunting.  He had several close calls but didn't get a bird.  He was upset.  I said, "Why are you upset?  We got to hunt together for several days and had several exciting encounters.  If you shot one the first day we would have missed all that fun together"  He thought about it for a while and he smiled.  The older I get, the less its about the kill.  Reframing what I thought success was has added to my hunts.  Now, if I could get less upset when I miss a bird I'd have it all figured out.
