I'll bet it's dang near impossible to find a place to hunt hogs in that county, thus the hog problem.

That's what I don't understand, if you have a problem, you would look for help with the problem. But people want you to pay them to help with there problem.

Feral hogs in texas have become a valuable game species just like every other free range exotic we hunt. It's no different saying we have an axis deer or blackbuck antelope problem in Hill Country. It's really not that big of a problem if you are charging people to hunt them. In fact there are tons of ranches that advertise hunts exclusively for pigs. California recognized them as a game species years ago and manages them as such with limits and seasons. TPWD also controls hunts for them on most of there WMAs, just like they do for exotics and deer.

No limits on hogs in California. it was $7.50 for a booklet of 5 around the turn of the century. now its $22.42 for one.and ranchers and guide are charging somewhere around $600 - $1000 each depending on the ranch.
So if you have a hog population problem , let me know. i can bring a bus load of hunters willing to pay up to $100 to shoot multiple pig each. be sure you have accommodation (none fancy) and a place to hang and skin pig . we will take care of our own food.

Erny,

I'm confused a little bit and just trying to clear it up because I use to live in California a few years ago and can tell you that pigs in California can be hunted 365 days a year and there is no bag limit at all. You merely pay per tag and keep paying until your out of money or tired of killing pigs. Are you saying that there is a bag limit and a season on hogs in California? That is simply not true. If I misunderstood...my apologies.

That article above is from July 2015.

Cheers!
