Feral Hogs in Oklahoma

hog in grassThe Wildlife Department receives many inquiries each year about hunting "wild" hogs. Feral hogs are defined as any hogs, including Russian and European wild boar, which are running at large and whose owners are unknown. In the case where the hog's owner is known, the hog will be defined as feral five days after escaping confinement. If notice is provided to adjacent landowners within those five days, the hog shall not be considered feral for an additional 10 days.
