They are a formidable opponent. Very smart. Your best bet would be to use a couple different tactics at the same time. put a trap or two out, some corn feeders in other areas and shoot them at the feeders. once you have em they are hard to get rid of. if all else fails--- claymore mines on trip wires or a good old fashion carpet bombing. lol
That's what I am afraid of. I know it is just a matter of time until they will totally take over my deer hunting place. If they do make their way over to my place i may try to set up a corral trap to try to get them all as they come. All the land owners around me hate the pigs too, so maybe between all of us we can keep our area mostly pig free. I'm afraid they have found the huge mast crop in my main hunting canyon. They haven't been sighted on my place just yet, but I'm sure it wont take long. They have been consistently at a neighbor's corn feeder. I pulled my feeders out yesterday so maybe they will stay over there on the neighbor.
