Deer hunters....shoot those feral swine - Nov 16th, 2012 - State

The Michigan DNR wants to remind hunters that deer season isn't necessarily just for deer anymore. Hunters also are encouraged to shoot wild hogs, often called feral swine. The wild swine are invasive species that can cause trouble for farmers and carry disease. The rules for shooting a wild boar: Anyone with a valid hunting license-including a deer-hunting license - can shoot them on public land. On private land, a license isn't needed as long as the hunter has the permission of the landowner.
