You or anyone else...IMHO, this is the most unsportsmanlike way to hunt something. How is it sporting to have something held down for you to walk up to and stick? Go tackle one yourself and knife it, that would be video-worthy.

Unsportsmanlike? Do you use thermal or hunt over bait? Because I'd like for you to explain how using dogs and a knife is not fair but using a scope in the dead of night that detects heat or dumping out corn is. If it's legal I support it. If you don't I'm sure PETA is looking for new members.

Respect your opinion.. But it is more about eradication.. With dogs they can eradicate up to 10-20 hogs in a day... How many can you shoot at a feeder? It is one of the most effective way of dispatching hogs there is.

The catch dog is NOT released until we are right there by the group of dogs that have it bayed up (barking at it and keeping it busy not biting it). So it is only held down for very minimal time until it is stuck straight into the heart for a quick kill.

I would say learn a little more about it until you knock it.

I do all of what you mentioned, but there's' no one holding it down while I shoot it.

This has to be one of the more full of crap ideas you've yet to put forward.

When I go after hogs I don't worry much about sportsmanship. I want every advantage I can get!
I use the wind, bait, whatever optics I have, expanding bullets, game cameras whatever works.
Hogs are not a game animal in Texas, they're basically a nuisance.

I don't hunt with dogs and can't afford a helicopter, but I'm not going to criticize the folks who do as long as they don't trespass.

I guess you don't watch Carnivore with Gary Roberson... this is a method of hog control whether you like it or not. Shooting hogs over a feeder does nothing.

You're right, I don't watch hunting shows, I have better ways to spend my time. Where did I say it wasn't a method of hog control? I took issue with our videographer wannabe's comment of "it being one of the most effective way of dispatching hogs there is" and that I don't care to have my game held down while I attempt to kill it.

Your comment of "shooting hogs over a feeder does nothing", is that directed at killing or eradication? Lot's more killed that way vs knifing. Are we going to "eradicate" hogs by shooting them at corn feeders, of course not. Calling hog doggin' a method of eradication is ridiculous, you're just killing a few, which I'm all for.

I agree! up I even said "kill it" vs "harvest it", so what's your point?

seen it done many times but usually in wheat fields or other agriculture. Shooting is deg more effective but stabbing sounds fun.

Not my cup of tea, but not critical of those who do.

Very good point. But More directed at feeder hunting... Not trying to knock any style by any means.

Hunting ag field vs a feeder is no comparison. I have ran out of bullets in a field with just a bolt action (ironcially that field was featured in an unfortunate video posted here last year). Point is, each method is most effective in certain situations.

Carnivore is not your regular show. Gary is a member here. His last show was filmed with one of our favorite members on his ranch. On another show he does a hog dog hunt for hog control so it was good to see how it was done even though he sticks with filming that one. I just stick to the ole rifle myself. up
