We all have it coming......
Dunc- Believe me there is no shortage of pork in my freezer. Or any my hunting partners. These hogs are heavily hunted and are very cunning, much more cunning than deer. They will move out of an area once you go in and leave your scent around. They have a dang good sense of smell and can wind you 300 yards away. They seem to be much more cunning than ones I have hunted in other parts of the state. They are European-Feral- and imported Russian's, and a mix of all together. They have been heavily trapped and hunted up here for years and just keep multiplying. They seem much smarter than the hill country ferals. Lots of people have hunted for them for 3 days on this place and never saw one, but during that same 3 days, my Game-Cams will take pics of hundreds of them. Wherever they go hunt, the hogs move to another area of my place unseen, unheard. As far as killing for fun, I never have and never will. I dont get any fun out of killing. I hunt to put food on the table. In my opinion, killing just strictly for fun is very, very, wrong. Why waste the meat, it is absolutely deliscious, much better than venison.Dunc said:Sea-Slug,
My opinion only but you need to lay waste to those hogs. Remember they are "feral" as in not native. I kill 'em on sight, without exception, as many rounds as I can get off into the herd. They will definately impact deer movements. Ever been in a deer stand wathcing a feeder with deer at it and all of a sudden they spook and run off and 5-10 minutes later here come the hogs? Killing the babies is expecially fun ( and tasty) watching momma freak out. Sling some lead at 'em.
Hey Palerider, I myself and most likely my pops would love to come take a few off your land.....as a matter of fact, if theres anyone else who wants a few gone I'd be more than happy to have some hog meat in the fridge. Let me know.TXPalerider said:We really don't want to fool with anymore.
