The Mississippi Department of Agriculture and Commerce will begin accepting a new round of applications for its Wild Hog Control Program on Monday, Aug 1. The application period will close on Monday, Aug. 15. All Mississippi counties are eligible for the application period.
Through the WHCP, MDAC provides "smart" wild hog traps to landowners and managers for the control of wild hogs on private agricultural and forestry lands in Mississippi. MDAC provides the training necessary to use the traps and technical guidance regarding the most effective methods to trap and control wild hogs on private lands.
"We are entering the third year of the program and demand for traps is growing," said Mississippi Commissioner of Agriculture and Commerce Andy Gipson "This demand is a result of more landowners learning about the success of our program and needing assistance to help fight this nuisance animal. On Aug. 5 at the Ag and Outdoor Expo, I will announce how my agency will be expanding the Wild Hog Control Program through a new partnership that will provide more assistance to landowners."
Trap applications must be completed and submitted online...
