Heeler,
For 48 dollars you can get some license at the COE office and go to the North end of Ray Roberts on COE land and shoot all the hogs you can fit in your truck.
They will give you a map to show you all the access points and everything a man needs.

They did a fly over in the Cross Plains area couple days ago, in a small area from Cross Plains over to Rowden back up near Caddo Peak...over 250 pigs mostly in groups, dirt napped about 25. Article is in the Cross Plains paper, which is only printed about once a week, going to see if I can get a copy over there tomorrow.

I'm new here, but have something to add, if that's okay. Some people think pigs are smart "barnyard" animals, cause they can use self feeders and waterers, and they will crap in the same place if penned up, lol. And if you ever cut yourself while gutting/skinning one(wild), you'll need special shots, cause they carry a bad bacteria. At least that's what they told me at the ER, when I was getting stitched up .



Mmmm Hmmm

They do & can carry brucellosis which humans can get from them. They may also carry pseudorabies which also requires medication if infected. We try to wear glove then cleaning them.

Thanks Maggie! Yeah, brucellosis sounds like what the nurse lady said. That was about 10 years ago...

From what i learned in a class in high school and on the discovery channel, a hog is the second smartest land animal, and i believe it because of my experience with domestic hogs.

Hogs are extremely smart! Alot of times they will migrate making it hard to pinpoint them. There have been several times when we have got on a good boar and he will go directly to a group of sows to try and get the dogs off of him. They know how to use the thickest thickets you can imagine to their advantage.

Your not going to get rid of them, they continue to multiply every 90-120 days. All you can do is hunt the land you don't want them on, and that will keep them out for a little while just like any animal. Putting the pressure on them. And as far as hunting them from a helicopter....... That is a whole other story. I just think it's wrong if the they shoot and leave it lay...... That is not hunting. They need to hire hunters to take care of the issue. Which one of us would not like to get paid for doing something we love to do? Anyway...... I will get off my soapbox!

Hogs are smart to an extent, but their hearing and eye sight are not good. Their nose is almost better than a deer, although you could walk right up on a hog and they can not see you when they are rooting or eating. Their head does not let them. I know they carry diseases, no different than deer or any wild animal. But if the meat is taken care of correctly, all diseases would be cooked out at cooking time.

a lot of times, it is not about "hunting" the hogs, it is about eradicating, so i see no problem with letting people shoot them out of helicopters, as far as hiring hunters to kill them.... good luck. we have 3 different people that dog hunt all of our land, along with trapping, and i spotlight about every weekend. We still got em....

My only thing is, and I know not all will agree with me........ but, I have trouble with shooting something and letting it lay. That is wasted meat that we could be feeding someone that is hungry.

well no disrespect intended, and i also know that everyone will not agree, but i have a problem with non native animals destroying our property and costing my family thousands of dollars a year, not to say i dont butcher some, and i do usually try to give em away if they are trappedd, usually sell, and sometimes ill try to find a person to take one that i killed, but either way, if ilet the hogs lay, koons, coyotes, other hogs, something will eat it.

Saw a video of hogs coming back to free a captured hog. The hunter(s) captured the hog with dogs and the other four hogs came back and basically attacked, freeing the hog and they all ran off.

Now, does that show intelligence? Of course, I have yet to meet one face to face, so I'm just speculating.

Jeremiah,
This thread is for general information only.

Please read the PM I sent you on this.

It would be better to start your personal thread so that the replies can be specific.

Thanks,

I will be honest, we are to blame.

This was a problem that at one time was only geographicly specific to Deap East Texas, untill some real idiots decided there so much fun to hunt they would trap them and relocate them. this is how they spread so quickly in the mid to late 90s and prety much became unstopable in the early 2000's

I understand landowners frustration, with people not respecting there land I have helped several folks out whom had probelms with them, and people in the past tearing up there proprty. But if your a landowner and there on your place and your doing nothing to rid them, your part of the problem.

These things have caused way to much destruction, as of late here in East Texas there was over 5mil in ag damage in one county alone last year. One city Jacksonville was overrun so much so where Police were have to respond to calls inside city limits to kill hogs with there sidearms because of the public danger they posed. Eventually there were as many as 50 trps inside city limits.

This is a big problem that will take everybody working together, the State working with landowners, landowners working with hunters and so forth.

What I like about hunting hogs is that I don't even have to have a hunting license to hunt them on our private land.
Also, we spotlighted hogs so much, they started running around in the daytime quite a bit. I just love spotlighting hogs.
