Michigan – -(Ammoland.com)- Q: I've heard that CPL holders may kill wild pigs (boars) at any time. Is this true?

A: Yes. Apparently because of the extreme nuisance and danger caused by wild swine, CPL holders are authorized by law to kill wild swine so long as they are not trespassers, and they observe the rules of safety and other regulations regarding the discharge of firearms, or other dangerous weapons.

In fact, a holder of any hunting license is authorized to do the same.

MCL 433.14a, which was amended in 2010, states:

“(1) Swine running at large on public or private property are a public nuisance.

(2) A local animal control officer appointed under the dog law of 1919, 1919 PA 339, MCL 287.261 to 287.290, or a law enforcement officer may kill a swine running at large on public or private property.

(3) A person who possesses a license to carry a concealed pistol issued under 1927 PA 372, MCL 28.421 to 28.435, or a valid hunting license for any game issued under part 435 of the natural resources and environmental protection act, 1994 PA 451, MCL 324.43501 to 324.43561, may kill a swine running at large on public property. A person may kill swine running at large on private property if the person is, or is accompanied by or has the permission of, the owner or lessee of the property.

(4) Subsection (3) does not authorize the discharge of a bow and arrow, crossbow, or firearm in an area where the discharge of that weapon, or hunting with that weapon, is prohibited by an ordinance adopted pursuant to part 419 of the natural resources and environmental protection act, 1994 PA 451, MCL 324.41901 to 324.41905.”

Giter done..

Just googled that pic.

The pig “hunt” was canned and the pig was domestic.

Big controversy down in Alabama in 2007 when it occurred.

We hunt them at night with shotguns and red lights mounted on the magazine tube. How would you like to meet that in the dark.

Okay, nature is definitely off its leash…

My neighbor hunts boar with a .223/5.56mm. He’s invited me to come along on the next hunt. I think he has a death wish; I think he thinks I do, too.

THAT, my friends, is why we NEED “high-capacity magazines”! I definitely would not want to make that thing mad but, I would take the chance for that much bacon.
