Someone I know has asked about a wild pig problem in their neighborhood, in a relatively rural part of Santa Clara County.

I seem to recall there's no shooting in Santa Clara County, except at ranges, but I may be wrong, and don't know where to look that up.

Is hunting allowed in the county?

I found this guide at the DFG site:
http://www.dfg.ca.gov/coned/pigguide.pdf

It says wild pigs are found in in almost every county. Some nice recipes too.

It doesn't mention seasons and limits, but this link does: http://www.fgc.ca.gov/2005/mammalregs05.html#368

ยง368. Wild Pig.

Wild pigs may be taken only as follows:

(a) General Season: Open all year.

(b) Bag and Possession Limit: There is no daily bag or possession limit for wild pigs.

Don't know if there are issues in the county, it being private land, if you can buy a license it should be ok right?

You need a written permission from owner if hunting on private land. In addition to hunting license, you will also need to buy pig tags.

I meant to mention that I am the one who asked Maxicon about hunting the pigs. http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_cool.gif He told me about this site.

My neighbors are willing to pay someone to come and get rid of the wild pigs. I don't remember the actual amount, but something like $50 or more each. If interested contact me at:

Hey Bradford,

I'm interested in doing a pig hunt. How do I sign on?

Sorry all. http://calguns.net/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_frown.gif

The neighbors are paranoid of guns and even arrows. They have hired a trapper. Oh well, I guess we won't be having an smoked wild pig butt any time soon. Thanks for playing.

My fathers boss keeps getting his garden dug up by the same pigs, caught them on by motion activated camera.

well....you could hunt the wild pigs with a bow...

I know that i can practice archery in my backyard (i got the ok from my Foster city Police) so i assume there are not restrictions in rural county land. i would check with the county sheriffs office (since they are the LEO for the unincorporated parts of your county)

good luck and i hope my info helps out
