    I heard that you can hunt wild hogs in Big South Fork on the Kentucky side after deer season up into Feb. All you need is a small game license and a hog permit. Does anyone know if this is true? I really don't want to explain to DNR why I am rabbit hunting with a 45-70.

    Its in the guide near the end. Probably page 33, 34, 35, somewhere in there. Google is also your friend if you dont have a copy of the guide. Fw.ky.gov.
    Im not certain but I believe its the first Saturday in September to the end of February. I also believe that in most place in Ky, its legal to shoot wild pigs year round except during modern gun deer season

    Yeah, I thought you could hunt wild hogs year round anywhere in Ky?

    Also, in all the years I've been on here, I can't recall of ever to hear of anyone claiming to have seen, let alone, shoot a hog in Big South Fork. Sure, I've heard of people claiming signs of them there, but I can't recall ever an actual hog there.

    Leave it to the govt to sell a permit to eradicate an invasive species, where do we get our Asian carp license ?
