I have been slowly constructing a pig trap piece by piece over the last few weeks making sure the pigs are still coming in to the area. Well finally, I got some results today. 5 pigs were in the trap and we not going anywhere. The biggest one was taken out with a .270 and the remaining ones were dispatched with a .22 cal between the eyes. What a sense of satisfaction after all the time and effort went into this plan to get rid of the pigs on our 40 acre hunting property. The USDA and DNR have been a big help and came out today to take samples and pictures. Two wonderful organizations since we got our first pig on a trail cam in July. The biggest one was 275# and the rest averaged 80-100#. This looks to be the entire family group that has been rototilling our food plots and destroying our small creek bed. These animals are a complete nuisance and is feels great to take them out. I am a huge believer in trapping and not full scale hunting them. If you have pigs on your property, think traps first. It is the only way to eradicate the problem. Hunting them will move them somewhere else and make them your neighbors problem. These are smart, and mainly nocturnal animals. While a full scale hunting assault sounds fun, it will not solve the problem. As of last year, I was a feral pig doubter. These animals are here, and will continue to be here unless we as sportsman, landowners, and neighbors can get together and use a plan that works. As a former doubter, the proof will be table fare for me now.
