Unfortunately, no animals were harmed in the making of this video, but if you interested to see what hogs did to the yard that took me years to grow then check out the video.... I'm fit to be tied!! Is this Karma??

That sucks. Time to put up a fence on the part of the yard you want to stay nice that or build a moat with big gators so they can eat the hogs when they fall in haha.

I know just how you feel. I left our gate open one night and they came right up the driveway and did the same kind of damage. Not to mention the fact that I can barely drive across our pastures. To say that I hate hogs is,putting it mildly.

"Vengeance is Mine" sayeth the Lord. I think you may deserve a little yourself. I hate feral hogs almost as much as I hate coyotes. Sic 'em Hans.

As there are two types of people that live in the Texas countryside, you can now change your status on FB from "going to have hog problems" to "has hog problems."

You built a house in hog habitat and are surrounded by hog habitat. You grew a beautiful lawn that is, err, was full of grubs and other tasty subterranean bugs. You don't have any fencing to keep hogs out. Basically, it is like you left an unattended open bottle of Johnny Walker and a case of beer in the middle of the Skid Row where anybody had access to it. The result was inevitable. That the destruction was so extensive is very unfortunate. That just plain sucks.

You can go out and shoot some hogs out of revenge and work on patrolling your own homestead, but you can't really guard your own place and other people's places at the same time. Until you do the Trump thing and build a wall (fence), it will happen again and will keep happening. Revenge hunting isn't going to solve your problem. It will probably make you feel better, until they hit you again, but it won't solve your problem.

My neighbor in Forestburg fenced his 7 acre yard with cattle panels. Has only had one hog problem in 14 years and that was while the fence was still being built. Hogs hit all around his place over the years, but nothing inside the 7 acres. The deer come into feed just fine.

Terrible loss, man, especially given the fact that you've worked so hard and invested so much money in getting the yard "just right!" Revenge is sweet. . .

Good lord... man I feel for you. I have to agree though, you won't shoot your way out of this. It is interesting there doesn't appear to be any damage outside of that raised area, which I'd say is probably rich in grubs and the like. I'm dealing with city hogs (moles). I'd at least start with lots of spraying for bugs/grubs which is not expensive and start. I would then get going with a fence as suggested.

Good luck to you.

Yes, I need to spray for worms. I really don't want to put up a fencing..

I've heard of people spray for grubs and I need to do that. You're right, it is inevitable, I've been lucky for a long time. The problem is that we have too much land to fence completely and I could fence my immediate yard area but that takes away some of the pleasure of living in the country and having open space. I'll just have to fix it and religiously spray for grubs...
