Bingo!!!

After trapping over 100 wild hogs on three properties this year; there are about 20 trap shy hogs. They eat the corn at the front of the trap and go part way; they will not trip the trapdoor.

We start killing those hogs when deer season is over: We'll use the old fashioned method; shooting their butts.

Isn't that the "Texas Heart" shot?

Me and Canebrake do some hog hunting in Fla. He uses a .458 Socom, I use a 300 Blackout.

I've done hawgs with .45 colt revolvers, .41 magnum revolvers. They go down quickly with good shot placement. The meat is lean and healthy, generally. None of that flabby watery flesh that comes from the farms that force-feed the pigs their own $#!t while tied up in stalls.

They are really good if cooked right, bar-b-qued, roasted, etc. There is little fat on them, so frying is not the best way.

Love the tenderloin broiled with the right seasoning.

Wild hogs are usually lean with very little bacon. There are exceptions, including this big sow:

And this corn fed one:

Watching the Outdoor Channel they are shooting a lot of hogs in north Florida around Panama City.
