Looks like Texas.  We are over run here as well.  Its hard to get rid of them once they have established themselves in an area.

Ok, I dread this problem coming to our area-- we have word that they are in north Missouri and already in very SW Iowa in Page county!!!
These guys get into my fields and destroy a crop-- I am bankrupt
I have watched the shows this winter on Nat Geo and Discovery and Animal Planet about the Hoggers, etc--   I know that they can't show everything on TV, but really
how do you handle these things?  Can you just go out and start blasting, can you actually trap them, etc
Great topic- what do you do?
Thanks
EF

You know, it was just down the road from you a bit where they killed and butchered a wild hog near a spinach field that contaminated the spinach with e coli! Right out our back door, in Salinas! Actually, Gonzales. When we lived out there people were hunting wild pigs all the time! It was considered a good source of meat, and they were not considered a nuisance. People hunted hogs out there like people hunt deer here in Missouri!

You could probably trap some of them but shooting would be alot faster and more effective (more fun).  Would the food banks take them?  I'm sure they are quite destructive and can be very dangerous but according to Peta, HSUS they have as much or more right to be here than we do?  What do they taste like? 

More income for gov., they sell everybody tags-permits!!
My post are just my opinion.

Our county was full of them 15 years ago. They got down to 12 cents a lb and they all disappeared.  (lol)

actually it was along highway 25 in a field on the san benito ranch as a probable though not proven source. it hasnt been conclusively proven what the actual culprit is. it seems to be in a lot of things. the end result was a lot of expensive fencing and no real solution.

the two deaths were from expired product, with one couple making a shake and fed to their infant and the other a bag that was expired with a older couple.

basically the stuff is everywhere.

notice the democrat in the story calling for more regulation even though the problem hasnt been identified yet.

and proper expiration date adherence, better washing of product with bleach, even if organic would help.

but hey we need to more regulation but keep the cost of food the same and dont enforce the same rules on importers.

i had a neighbor who hunted them all out of the pinnacles park which is surrounded by pig fence.

You can trap them and shoot them if any of you northern boys need some help or advise let me know! Down here in texas we run traps year around and also hunt them they are frustrating and destructive but the back straps out of a pig are really good eating as long as its a young sow

you can hunt them with dogs, catch them, tie um up, and remove them from your property.  if they have large teeth you can sell them to raches/hunters for a generous profit.  what ever you do get a jump on them before they overteke your area.  they reproduce every 3 weeks & 3 days.  doesnt take long for them to establish and destroy land.

Try 3 months, 3 weeks and 3 days! But they do not come into heat until they wean the litter, so two litters a year is usual. But, at 10 plus pigs in a litter (at least domesticated pigs!), that is a lot! Sexual maturity at 6 months....

I had alot of fun killing hogs for the fun of it in Florida. Orchard farmers will let you hunt them for free, some over feeders as the hogs are destroying orange orchards. I have a friend who lives down there invited me down and told me to bring my rifle, killed alot of hogs and was a blast. Way too cold for the hogs to move out by me. In Florida like most states, they are a nuisance and you can kill or trap as many as you want without a license.
