    Can anyone tell me the ins and outs of hunting with a "farm permit"? Aka deer/hog/predator for a farm? I hear it is obtainable by the land owner and not the hunter, and you have to "let lay" the removed nuisance animal. I know the hog and yote rules. I am asking more about the rest. Thanks

    I can tell you that it is a system that is wildly abused and should be done away with.

    Zero intentions of abusing it. I know peeps with farms that can use it.

    If you are talking about a deprivation permit, then yes the farmer has to apply and prove crop damage. Also you are correct that you have to let them lay, at least for deer. For several years I killed deer for a tree farm and that was the rules then.

    Oh, hogs and coyotes you don't need a permit. They are invasive species and open season.

    That would be correct. Who might they contact to receive such a permit? Thanks

    DNR regional office for their area. Back when I was helping the farmer out, they sent out a person to look at the type and amount of damage. Then they made an assessment on whether or not to grant a permit.

    Also depending on the area the land is in. Tell the farmer to ask the county extension agent to come out and look at the damage before contacting the dnr. Ask the extension agent to write up a summary of what he recommends (hopefully a permit ) and then the farmer cam give a copy to dnr when they come to inspect.
