Got a neighbor that has done this in the past. Pisses me off to no end, and I shoot every one I can. Nuts or no nuts, they still tear chit up.

I haven't done it, but i can understand doing it. I've heard of guys castrating, clipping an ear for ID, then releasing them to be killed later. Take away the desire to reproduce, and they fatten up. Good eating!

I'm with you. Kill the little cockroaches.

Yessir, that's what happens and why. If he'd just put a pig proof fence up around his place............

X2......except I would put a few other critters on that list of no mercy extended like rattlesnakes, copperheads, skunks, raccoons and possums.



Do a bit of research on opossums and you’ll sing a different tune. They don’t dig or destroy property, they eat insects like roaches, etc.. After learning what I did, they are welcome in my yard anytime. They are nature’s sanitation engineers. About the worst thing they ever did at my home was drive my coon hound crazy if he got a scent of one.

Sort of an endless battle ! I didn't have any hogs in my traps this morning, but there were sure a lot of tiny tracks everywhere in the area. Not long back I had pics of lots of really, really, fat sows looking ready to drop some babies....I guess they are doing it now.

Stony, that is what I am seeing on my game cams right now. Positively huge (pregnant) Sows. Getting ready to drop babies at any time now. They will leave the sounder for a week or so...while nesting and suckling the newborns, but will soon rejoin the group with all the little ones 'in tow'. By the time the piglets are two weeks old...they have no trouble following mom just about anywhere.

Okay...Okay.....I finally gave up and took care of a few today. I still have some feelings about killing babies, but I guess some of them need to be done with.

If you have a place and time to keep them, it could turn out delicious.
If you feed them good now, they will feed you good later and you will have a good idea what went into them beforehand.
Or possibly one of the folks you give pigs to will want them.

Well if you try something you give it a valiant effort up

Sorry Old Stony, it just struck me funny. Nice haul today, if you don’t like killing them don’t do it.

They are cool when they are that little,and hogs have a very structured family system
As far as killing babies
I have a different prospective as a hog hunting guide on one of my properties is a mostly
Untouched by humans creek bottom to keep populations up we hunt the mature
Boars first then eating size 80 plus pounds the last on target list are sows with shoats
In the bottom they regulate their population naturally and we hunt it regularly so need more targets
Growing up
Then on the other hand I hunt a fenced property that ever hog in the fence is to be killed
On sight and those babies pop like balloons

Good job Stony. In the aggregate those hogs represent thousands of new hogs if left to mature and breed.

IF the idea is to keep numbers down...then you did the right thing....no matter how unpleasant. I take no pleasure in killing any hog (size matters not), I am simply trying to protect my property. It is a necessary thing to do. If I had my way, there would be NO hogs in Texas.

I am not hunting for food or sport.
