Hog Training on Web

In the last year, more than 150 volunteers have been trained to assist biologists and technicians in the Michigan Wild Hog Removal Program.  The effort is a partnership of the Michigan Wildlife Conservancy and the U.S. Department of Agriculture with support from the Michigan Pork Producers Association, the Michigan Corn Growers Association, the Michigan Forest Association, and others.

Volunteers have received instructions on trapping procedures as well as the biology and impacts of wild hogs at sessions held at several locations around the state.  NOW, THE SAME TRAINING IS AVAILABLE ON THE MICHIGAN WILDLIFE CONSERVANCY’S WEB SITE, WWW.MIWILDLIFE.ORG.

The entire training session takes less than one hour to view.  This information is valuable to anyone wanting to learn more about wild hogs and the threat they pose to Michigan.

To access the material and volunteer as a trapper go to

If you have any trouble finding the site, please contact Jennifer at or 517-641-7677.
