Boar hunting in/around Kentucky

Hello all,

So I live in Kentucky and have hunted deer since I was deemed old enough to hold a rifle by my dad. However I've never hunted boar and recently my roommate and I have talked about it a lot. In fact, he has actually purchased a spear and really wants to do the spear thing. I'm perfectly fine with a gun myself but he has found outfitters in Florida but surely there is something closer. So my question to the community is does anyone know of any good places in or around KY that would be good to look into? Kentucky has some boars that have started to move in but they are apparently very scattered and I've not seen any specific locales for pig hunting here.

Any suggestions or advice on locations would be great. Thanks

If you're talking pure or nearly-pure Russian wild boars, there aren't many in most parts of the country. Feral hogs and cross-breeds, mostly the feral domestic versions which can be very nasty, are all over the U.S. and are just as destructive and dangerous. I remember hearing some time back that the eastern part of Kentucky especially has had a lot of hog problems. The place to start is with the Department of Fish & Wildlife Resources, online or at your nearest DFWR office.

Just wild pigs, not neccesarily boars I guess. I tried KY Fish and Wildlife but apparently they are so against them becoming popular it won't even tell you where to look. I guess it is out of fear of people releasing them.
