Summary: Wild Boar can be found in 32 Southern Illinois counties, but can also be found in the mid-west as well. The Illinois Department of Natural Resources has asked hunters to report sightings of feral swine to access movement, and to plan for eradication. You do not need a hunting license to take wild pig. The DNR does not consider them to be wildlife, and therefore they are not protected. You may take as many as you like,  and pretty much are open to any weapon to hunt them with.

For more information contact the Illinois DNR at (217) 785-2511. They can also provide you with current sightings and locations.
