Wild Boar hunting season announced

Wild boar season opens Saturday in four counties. The Division of Natural Resources says a special boar permit is no longer required, but hunters must have certain licenses. Hunting of wild boars will be restricted to Boone, Logan, Raleigh, and Wyoming Counties. Hunters can only take one wild boar per year and hit has to be checked at an official station within 24 hours. Wild boar hunting begins October 27 and runs through November 3.
