    Kill the dawn things, they have already moved up into Idaho and destroyed some of the corn fields I used to hunt not far from the snake river. I am stationed in Georgia now and I go out every weekend I can and kill at least 2. They are also getting into delicate ecosystems and just ruining them.

    Lots of hogs are being released into the wild by idiots who want a place to hunt wild hogs: It's happening all over the country. The hog hunting "ranches" buy hogs by the truckload and turn them loose for their clients. Some of the hogs i kill look like dirty show pigs.

    We could send you lot some of our estimated 23 million pigs over here.That should keep your barrels warm for a few hours :D.
    Pig busting is a very popular pastime over here with some real brutes getting shot or dogged and stuck,regards

    I am sure there are some wild hogs in Utah, although I have never seen any (lived here nearly 50 yrs now). I have recently heard there may be a few in the SW corner of the state. In the northern part of the state, there are a couple outfits that have "canned" hunts for big Russian boars. I don't know how closely they watch their pigs, but would imagine some escape and survive.

    I sure wish we had some in Colorado, I have a model 92 Winchester in .357 that would be perfect for hogs with my handloads. That is something I'd really like to try sometime.

    I'm from Texas. Hog capital of the world and ive probably taken about 300-400 pigs with my .257 weatherby mag with 117 grain round nose bullets and to this day I've failed to see a rifle that over comes it. It leaves all compedaters in the dust

    :)Wow you need a .257 Mag. to shoot hogs. Most are shot at very close range. As I recall a 30-30 always seemed to work OK.:confused: If you shot 400 hogs in one year that would be 1.09589041 per. day.:rolleyes: I can only imagine eating over 1 ton of pork even in Texas.:eek: I have a good friend at Seadrift, Txs who has killed many hogs with a .22 pistol.:)

    I heard there are getting to be some wild hogs down around St. George/Mesquite.

    Everything up north is domestic cross on private land.

    Just how old are you mon ami? Cuz if you have killed 300-400 of em then you have to be a better hog hunter than me, muliemaster, downsouth, and a few others combined.
