Iron and Madison County Wilderness Areas Temporarily Closed Next Week for Feral Hog Eradication

(Iron County/Madison County) Mark Twain National Forest personel will be closing a couple wilderness areas in Iron and Madison counties next week to perform some feral hog eradication work.

Here’s Forest Ranger Cody Norris.

Norris explains why they will be using helicopters next week instead of trapping entire feral hog sounders in a pen.

Norris says Bell Mountain and Rock Pile Wilderness areas will be marked with signs next week when the temporary closures will be taking place.
