Firearm deer hunting season begins Thursday and runs through Nov. 30. Officials with the Michigan Department of Agriculture and Rural Development as well as the Department of Natural Resources also say farmers should shoot the wild pigs. They urge people to report sightings of the free-ranging animals.

The DNR has designated certain types of exotic swine as invasive species. Officials say they've escaped from game ranches and caused damage in the wild.

Private land owners may shoot or trap-and-remove feral swine.
