Control of Certain Nuisance Species

Hunters are encouraged to shoot feral swine year-round with any valid hunting license or a concealed pistol license. Feral swine can be taken on public land and, with permission, on private land. Hunters who shoot a feral swine are asked to submit parts of the animal to a DNR offi ce for disease testing. If you see feral swine please record the date, time, precise location and number of swine observed and provide that information to Michelle Rosen at rosenm@michigan.gov or 517-336-5030. For more information about feral swine, see www.michigan.gov/feralswine.

Any ear-tagged cervids (members of the deer and elk family) found outside of a fence of a registered cervidae facility for more than 48 hours may be taken by hunting during designated deer and elk seasons if the individual has a valid hunting license.

All exotic cervids, including all white cervids, found outside of a fence of a cervidae facility for more than 48 hours may be taken by hunting year-round if the individual has a valid hunting license.
