The beginning of the end.

A property owner that is exactly one mile south of my place came up to the yard this weekend to tell me she saw wild pigs at her deer feeder last week. I knew it was coming as an area around the lake ~5miles south is heavily populated with them. Recently in the last few years it seems like everyone is going out there and hunting them and chasing them with dogs. It seems like this is starting to get them into exploring new areas. The canyon where these were seen runs right through the corner of my property, and I'm sure they will be coming my way soon. I'm afraid this is going to screw up my deer hunting in a very bad way when they do get here. I guess I need to go visit the hog hunting forum to figure out the best way to destroy these destructive cridders...I hate hogs, and they will not take over my favorite deer hunting canyon without a fight! Any suggestions appreciated.

it wont be as bad as you think. My lease has deer and hogs on it. I would look at it as an opportunity to hunt more.

I average about 5 pigs a year and it has become an obsession with me.

In the areas i hunt they coexist surprisingly well.

Peanut farmers and hogs do not coexist well together at all though! Pigs can tear up 30 acres a night.

Around here when the pigs move in the deer move out. I am not looking forward to these invasive cridders prowling around competing with the deer. There is not an abundance of browse around here anyway...

In Missouri, the dept of conservation has made it very clear that if you see feral hogs to kill them on site. No tags or license required. I live in north-central MO and have never ran into one,, but for it to be in our D of C magazine they have to be making their way from the south. I'm guessing southern MO has them in limited quantities.

Texas has the same mind set when it comes to feral hogs - shoot on site, no limit, no season, no license required.

Holy Crap! That is a huge pig! I would hate to be on the ground with that thing. Especially during bow season.

No doubt somebodies pet at one time. I read about another big one a year or so ago. A rural homeowner had it as a pet, it ate so much he couldnt afford to feed it. He put an add in the paper and someone bought it.

A couple of weeks later it showed up in a forum picture. Turns out an outfitter bought it, put it on his land and let some city slicker shoot it.

Poor Arnold. :)

lol. That's retarded. Someday these outfitters will be paying people to come in and control this problem they have started. The only reason we have pigs around here is because an outfitter brought some in and turned them out on their ranch for "hunting". Now they are out of control and spreading all over the place. I'm sure he hasn't made too many friends doing that.
