In the last 2 months i have had 5-6 different ear tagged hogs on 3 different feeders, not all in the same group of pigs, some have white tags that are numbered some are black with no numbers, Motley County, anyone know if this is some study of some sort?? these are feral hogs no place anywhere close to the ranch where they could've escaped. these are feral. Maybe some type of trapped and tagged biologist survey perhaps, going to try and pluck a few when i get time, maybe there is a Phone Number with tag. Just thought someone here might know.

If you don't find any information on the tags, I would bet they are bar hogs.

If they're barrows they will be good eating. No idea why they would have ear tags.

Some trappers and hog doggers will castrate boars and let them go. They will sometimes notch or tag ears to identify the ones that they have done.

These may also be hogs captured in one place and then released on to a hunting preserve and then escaped. These hogs should have numbered tags that can be used to determine the ranch where released. If you shoot a hog with a numbered tag, ideally you can contact TPWD department with the information.

Here the catch them with dogs or in traps and cut the tails off them. Some of they cut and then release them. I think they are turning in the tails for the county bounty money on them at times. Catch and release hunting.

Kill 'em, ear tags and all. But get them out of the breeding cycle!

Their testicles have already been cut so they are NOT breeding. That is what a bar hog is. He has been castrated. As a result of castration they will no longer fight with other boars for the breeding rights, and they will pack on a LOT of weight. Since they don't fight they often have very nice cutters on them. They have no interest in da wimmin pigs no mo. They just want to eat, sleep, and be left alone.. Kind of like most married men in their 50's. Fat & happy.
