Default San Diego County Feral Pig

The following was taken from THL Facebook :

There's been word of increasing Feral Pig populations in San Diego County in and around the Cleveland National Forest. I'm going to contact the Park Rangers in the Palomar and Descanso districts to get some maps and other info. Believe it or not, hunting is actually being encouraged as a management tool. There's a lot of private and Tribal Reservation land so good maps and nav skills will be important. More later.

In response to Erik's question about where to sign up:
Hey Erik
You can contact the ranger district station at the phone # on the link and they'll email you information. Out of state hunting license is $144.65 and a Non Resident Pig Tag is $66.70. Year round season and no bag limit. I've learned that the best times are in the Fall around acorn drop or Spring (After most of the rainfall but before high temps make them more nocturnal). The Rangers were very helpful. They are supposed to be willing to share info on sightings, etc.

In response to Erik's comment about how steep the fees are:
Resident fees are much lower: $41.50 for license & pig tag is $19.95. The pig tags are actually meant for census purposes, at least for where & when they were harvested. I'm guessing that elements of our State Govt have a bad attitude toward resident hunters so nonresident ones would add to their "problems." Temporary nonresident licenses, though much cheaper, don't permit hunting of big game species. IMHO, in a government bureaucracy it's possible that one hand is either unaware or unconcerned with what the other is trying to do.

Also, thanks to Jamie for the kind wishes.
It would be a shame to waste a perfectly good mistake by not learning from it.
