I cannot find a darn pig on my place. If that wasn't bad enough, a buddy's wife sits on her front porch with an old ragged out bolt gun in 225 Winchester, with a Bushnell scope from the 70's, and she just keeps stacking those pigs up and sending me pictures. Killing me, it is. Not fair at all. And where does she even get the 225 ammo? Dang!

Two things:
1. Beware of the person with only one gun because they probably know how to use it.
2. She's a better hunter than you are - get over it. aim

Maybe her slop brings all the pigs to the yard? confused2

That's easy. She isn't chasing them. She lives at where she hunts and is more vigilant than you.

Hunting isn't about being fair. If it was, the hogs and deer would have guns, too.

225, that is great.
Sounds like you need a porch, not a blind.

Becareful what you wish for, you may miss a few of them.

I had a farmer that wanted them gone, after 3-4 months of shooting them several night a week and he did not have any pigs for over a year and a half. Well after about 6 mths his pork supply ran out, and he started missing a few of them.

We had something like that. We put out cameras and fed heavy during the off season, we had a heck of a time finding a pig for the traditional Saturday BBQ at the lease and something for the kids to hunt in the off season.
We started seeing a few pigs, then lots of piglets. We were eating good. Then there were hundreds of pigs, everywhere, it was an invasion. Daytime, nighttime, anytime, pigs all over the place. It was amazing how fast it happened. We went from not a pig to be seen to more than we could handle in 6 months. They took over the feeders, they would run off all of the deer.
We have hunted and trapped them hard. It is finally down to a manageable few. What we didn't kill must have run off under the pressure. Oddly we found ourselves managing pigs, crazy.
We do like to have them around some, but not like that.

With thermal rifle scopes and suppressors getting rid of hogs is not a problem. I don't hunt it's simply eradication when the farmers and ranchers need some critters gone I get a call. I don't pay to shoot critters, I don't take money for shooting them either so it's a win win for the property owner with a problem. I don't mind spending some fuel as it would cost me to get a lease and drive there as well.

I pulled all the camera memory cards today. I have had 1 big boar hog coming in to a feeder on a totally random basis and usually at 3ish in the morning. Guess I should call Karla to shoot him. She has been more effective than I have. Maybe with all this rain, they'll come back. Two years ago the pigs were plowing up my hay field with their snouts, and I wanted them gone. Pigs...Come back...come back.
