Summary: Minnesota considers wild boar as an invasive and destructive species with little to no restrictions on how to hunt them. There is not much of a population due to the very cold temperatures. If there are any wild pig, they are most likely escaped domestic swine, and won’t survive the winter. There was one case of wild swine that was in Big Stone County Minnesota, but they were domestic stock. Evidence of wild swine was found in GoodHue County as well, but no wild boar were found.
