Default hogs

I live in east tx,hogs are a problem here to people with pastures.I try to kill ,and eat what i can . Almost nocturnal ,one has less than a 20% chance of seeing them in daylight hours. The pigs are getting smarter ,when it comes to traps ,dogs are the best option for capture /removal.I dont believe in relocation unless its to a very cold deep freeze. I also think the hog problem could be blessing in disguise.....If a very bad event were to take place ,ie collapse of society as we know it .The pigs would be a very plentiful,renewable food source.

So far this year i've shot and trapped about 60 wild hogs. It's getting harder to give hogs away: Folks want a hog that's been field dressed and skinned. Using a catfish skinner or small nippers i can skin a hog in about 20 minutes.

We watched the show the other night, and when they carted off the captured hog I turned to my wife and said, "What they don't show is them killing that hog and selling it to some restaurant that specializes in wild pork".

too much wild meat from the hog does not have a nice taste. I shot 107 hogs this year and I never ate any of em.

I find myself wondering how wild hog meat would work as food at the animal shelters. "Cap a piggie for the pound" etc.

The meat has to be thoroughly cooked to kill off any trichina. Trichinosis will kill a human if not treated.

I agree with the above premise and I love Pulled BBQ Pork.

Next year I will be going back to Florida to KILL SOME PIGS.

I've watched this show a couple of times and both times I thought "what a bunch of loosers". Totally stupid show.

Now they should make a show with these guys.

At least the trapper guys in the Hawaii show state that they do kill the hogs for shelters.
I did see one episode where they decided one hog was too big to hog tie and the lady ran up and stabbed it.
I am still amazed that there are simply no firearms...WTF?
