Kansas Bans Hog Hunting
Kansas has enacted legislation making it illegal for anyone to ?engage in...assist or profit from the release, killing, wounding or attempted killing or wounding of feral swine for the purpose of sport, pleasure, amusement or production of a trophy.? According to the Kansas Department of Wildlife & Parks, this legislation was needed to prevent residents from releasing feral swine in new areas in order to have a new hunting opportunity. These releases had a negative impact on the surrounding environment and privately owned land. In the end, the state?s solution was to ban all swine hunting to cut off the incentive to transport and release feral swine into other areas. Sportsmen groups in Kansas are currently assessing their options on how to better manage the population and overturn this ban before the start of next year?s legislative session. SCI will keep you posted on any progress.
Now Ohio has a similar unwritten policy according to some officers of the department for Natural Resources. We supposedly have some feral hogs running in some of our State parks and the State DNR would like see them hunted to extinction from my last conversation this past winter.
