I think your best bet is to always have a firearm with you when youíre on the property. Nothing more frustrating then finding a porcupine and not having a gun. When I was cruising timber I bought a handgun specifically for that and it accounted for 20-25 every winter. That was over quite the area; we donít have the population densities some of you are reporting further east.

One important thing about porkies, they tend to spend the winter in the same area year after year. It might be a particular den spot or food source but the come back to it every winter. If you find a lot of porky damage in the summer be sure to come back in the winter, odds are theyíll be back.

Exactly.  I have a pocket 380 that I don't depend on for self defense but it has killed a lot of porcupines cause it's always with me.
