    One of the biggest reasons they have such a problem is very limited hunting. Most of the pigs are on some of the big ranches and an average person cannot get on there to hunt or you need very deep pockets. I have been many times in the past but I have a long time friend who owns the ranch where I hunted. I would really like to do one of those chopper hunts though, I think that would be a blast

    That's why I like Mi. policy towards pigs. I'd like to see it changed to where you don't need a small game license.
    Not that I've ever seen a pig in the woods, but I'd like to keep it that way.

    Yep, the TX Ag Commissioner wants to use Warfarin to poison wild hogs. After ingesting Warfarin the hogs often suffer for a week or more before dying. i think the use of Warfarin to poison wild hogs is inhumane. Australia stopped using Warfarin to poison hogs for that very reason.

    Texas and Oklahoma are over run with wild hogs. Hunters and landowners in both states run deer feeders all year long. They go through huge quantities of corn and other feed. Much, if not most, of that food is being eaten by wild hogs. Yep, folks are attracting, feeding and raising wild hogs. Additionally, Bubba continues to release hogs into the wild. Some of the hogs i kill look like dirty show pigs.

    Last year i killed 50-60 small pigs with a Ruger 10/.22. Shot another 40 or so adult hogs. We also trapped about 70 wild hogs.

    End result: Not a dent in the hog population.

    Let it stink for a couple weeks, no big deal! Live pigs probably stink more than dead pigs anyhow!

    Put a serious commercial incentive behind killing those pigs and they won't have a pig problem for very long, provided they, the state government, set the program up for success and eliminate fraud problems before they happen.
