Many reasons for sure but here's my Top Ten...

1. They're a destructive nuisance.

2. Some can make for good eating.

3. They're relative easy to hunt for multiple reasons.

4. There's simply too many of them.

5. They make for excellent off-season shooting practice.

6. It gives you an opportunity to monitor deer and other wildlife.

7. Local businesses benefit from the money you spend on gas, food, ammo, etc.

8. It gives you a great reason for get off the couch and get some fresh air and exercise.

9. You paid for an annual license so why not use it.

10. It's beats the hell out of watching fake news.

On private property, you don't even need a license.

There must be something about women and feral hogs because my wife keeps telling me to kill as many as I can. Her distaste for feral hogs becomes obvious whenever we happen to see them rooting in fields and roadsides. I'm convinced she equates them to stinging insects and roaches.

The first one was good enough.
They can tear up some stuff in
short order. If you ever have to
spend time fixing things they've
tore up and filling in places they've
rooted out, you'd hate em too.
I'll put a bullet in one any chance I
get. The ones I've experienced
kept the deer run off.
That should be a good reason for
anyone on this site

Great list! I would say MOST are pretty good eating, and a great source of versatile meat in a time of spotty supply in some areas.

Agreed. I just cooked up some backstrap off of a fairly little guy last weekend. Made a good companion to mac and cheese.

Grand kids use them to sharpen their skills in shooting and skinning.

I'll add that you can kill as many as you want and my favorite - you have to option to let em lie when you kill them. I've always said that the best way to mess up a deer hunt was to kill a deer (the work starts then). Don't have that problem with hogs!!

I went out this morning, hoping to kill a hog. There must have been 20 hogs at the feeder, but it was too dark to shoot. The feeder hadn’t even gone off yet. They left, and when it did go off, they didn’t come back. And the nasty critters dug up my side yard again. I’m in a mood now.

I put a green motion light under my feeder years ago. It casts enough light to take one from 123 yards. That's how far the box blind is. It's 27 yards from my popup.

My wife won't shoot a deer...but she'll kill every pig that gets close enough for her to hit!

13. It will keep you from taking your flag and throwing it in the trash if you aren't at home.

I have a bunch of them but don't like the idea of hog shooting until deer season ends. I don't pop a cap of any kind, unless at a deer from bow season starter till the rifle season ends.

I've told everybody not to shoot coyotes. They're on our side.
