    seems to me those cowboys need some dogs. Looks like fun though.

    Wild Hogs!
    I thought you were talking about the biker movie with John Travolta.
    Never mind!

    Too many hog cut dogs. I think this is a better way.

    i probably shouldn't post the video in which the dogs force the hog into the stream and the hunter shoots the pig in the head...

    I don't have a problem with hunting. I have a problem with people who hunt hogs with their dogs without making the slightest effort to protect the dogs and expect my wife to save the dog when they bring it into the clinic with its intestines dragging in the dirt.

    I believe it should be "shoot to kill on sight" anywhere (within safe reason), anytime (within safe reason) to get a handle on those bastages.

    In Texas, it is already. It makes no difference. They're spreading because people are illegally moving them for hunting.

    We've got them out here in California, too. They walk into some of the campgrounds at night along our beaches north of Los Angeles. I've also seen them on Catalina Island (in So Cal), in the Colorado River System, and in the hills of Central Cal.

    We have them here on the north coast. It's open season on them year round. You cannot believe the damage they do to the coastal meadows. Pigs belong on the grill.

    Germany is getting their butt kicked right now by wild boars. Once the wall came down they've moved into many of the west germany cities. Some of them are radio active from the Chernobyl Disaster. Basically they eat the mushrooms that are radio active. So, look on the bright side. We just have boars and not radio active boars.

    grant ranch county park southeast of san jose looks like heavy machinery has been digging through the fire roads sometimes.

    I think a big reason why the open season on pigs isn't making a dent in the population is because not enough people hunt them year round. Here in TX, people shoot them when they're hunting things like deer, and they leave the carcasses for the coyotes and the vultures. But otherwise, most people are disgusted by wild hogs and won't hunt them by choice.

    I think permitting market hunting for them might do a better job of thinning the populations and reducing damage. they're here to stay, though...too many of them to eliminate them completely.

    The only saving grace is that the mountain lions are well fed.

    yeah, that'd be a problem. I haven't run across anyone doing that in E. TX. But they might well be doing it in places up north where people are illegally transporting them.

    Do the radioactive boars glow in the dark for night hunting?

    You think feral pigs are bad, then check this....

    Tones, have you seen this one? If this was a "major motion picture" in Aus in the 70's, the film industry sure has come a long way since then.

    Saw alot in Germany, even been chased once by some in the dark, lol that was pretty funny after we got away, not so funny during.
    recently did some work down in felsmere, Fla. and saw a few but not nearly as fiesty as the grune-pigs in Germany.

    Exactly my comment at the beginning of this thread. You can probably hunt bores/hogs in the wide open plains with a horse but if you get into brush or water you're going to have a hard time keeping up. Dawgs, no problem.

    the key is to give the dog appropriate body armor. Most of the rednecks around here don't. Hence the intestines dragging in the dirt, the sucking chest wounds, and stuff like that they show up to the vet with.

    Texans don't hunt though, that's the problem. They set up their little hunting lodge, put out feeders and wait for the animal they're killing to show up. That's not hunting. That's being a gatherer. And those feeders don't just feed the deer, they feed the hogs too. The hogs that breed year round and have usually at least 8 young 3 times a year. Then the young can breed by 6 months old. How do you slow that down? I was at a "hunting ranch" in San Antonio in October. You kill whatever you want, pay by the head, and they take care of everything. All you do is pull the trigger. That's not hunting. We killed about 12 hogs just for grins while I was there and didn't even make a dent. Those are some tough suckers too. We hit one 4 times with large 30 caliber rounds (.308, .338 Win Mag, 7 Mag) and he was still ready to fight. I'm just glad I live in CO and they haven't made it here to me yet. I've heard rumors of them being out in the southeast corner already though.

    good point. I wasn't thinking about those broadcast feeders that feed everything that walks by. ubiquitous structures on the Texas countryside.

    bacon is meat candy. how can you not obsess over it? I do say, however, it occupies more space in my mind than it does in my belly. I don't even eat meat on a daily basis.
