Summary: Kansas has a zero tolerance policy regarding feral hogs. You are not allowed to hunt them on public land, and you cannot hunt them on private property unless it is your own property to remove or eradicate the pigs. If you own a hog removal service, and have a state permit, you may remove feral pig on private property. While there have been numerous sightings of wild boar in Kansas, after an extensive removal and eradication efforts by the state, Kansas has limited those numbers. It will be interesting to see how effective this statewide removal will be in the next coming years. Kansas has a lot of rural land, and fields of crops that are very attractive to wild boars. It will be a tough battle for sure.

Wild Boar Locations In Kansas: Wild pigs have been trapped and seen in south-west Kansas as well as northern Kansas near the Nebraska border. Kansas counties where wild pigs can be found are Barber, Bourbon, Cowley, Elkhart, Morton and Douglas Counties. Kansas is a transitional migrating state for wild boar, and will continue to see growth in the future. The best place to find Kansas wild pig is in Bourbon County near the Missouri  border.
