No one shoots pigs?

Yes some of us shoot pigs.

Trapping is a more effective long-term solution. We trap them and ship them up north to the yankees that make fun of us because we don't like cold weather.

While they are fun to hunt they are a massively destructive pest and it's the only animal I kill without harvesting and don't feel anything when I do. I'd prefer not to have this issue but it seems like I'd miss hunting them if they weren't so readily available.

Got 13 that night.

We are starting to have quite a bunch here in E.Ms. 2-3 weeks ago the grandson caught a herd of 15 on his game cam beside his feeder, about 800' behind my home, yes we live rural. BIL trapped 4 last year across the road in a ''deadfall'' trap.

Their destructive impact on local ecology is tremendous. Each year we discover new areas of concern that can be traced back to depredation of native habitat and wildlife. I've been studying the affects of feral hogs on local ecology for 16 years and the wide spectrum of damage is quite amazing. What's almost more amazing is that humans are intentionally, although often ignorantly, aiding in their locational diversity.

The sow I shot was pretty decent, but she was a clean young girl.

You get you a big old nasty boar and clean and eat him and I'll give you props as a Daniel Boone mother fucker.

My daughter shot one the other day and it stunk like shit.

Cleaned it boned it ground it into chilli meat no smell. You got to get rid of the belly meat below the ribs down to the crotch.

We have guys that have cleaned and eaten 400 pound boars

I'm not huge on WT either, but oh my Lord, I love Axis. If pigs tasted as good as Axis we wouldn't have a pig problem. As many pigs as I've killed you'd think I wouldn't be able to stomach another bite, but one of my guys does an amazing job with a supple sow.

Be very glad it's a problem you don't have.  

We we trap and shoot as many as we can at work.  But it seems like a losing battle at times.  

I don't consider it hunting. It's varmint control, plain and simple. Shooting a trap full of piglets is something I'd never consider as hunter, but it's standard procedure for hogs.  



I still want to shoot em from a helicopter, though.  With a belt-fed.

I like fat chicks
Link Posted: 12/18/2016 9:13:12 PM EST
According to our guide we went hog hunting with, you need to remove the glands in the hind quarters or they taste like shit. The ones we shot tasted like normal pork, just dry and tough as shit. The chops are terrible, they are like eating a piece of leather. I had to put the ribs in the crock pot to make them palatable. Everything I had ground into sausage wasn't bad, but I had pork fat added.

The guy we hunted with traps hogs too. He does something called a "Texas Skeet Shoot" with the piglets. We get to practice our long range shooting on moving targets.

I tell you what, tomorrow, I am making chilli at work and I have 30 pounds of elk and 30 pounds of ground hog and it is hard for me to decide which to use. My wife got mad when I pick the elk over the pig last time.

I make 30 pound batchs of chilli and they eat the shit out of it and we all take some home for the evening meal.

This guy was a mean SOB. It definitely adds a bit of excitement walking around at night in the woods when you know there are bad dudes like him around.

I am the landowner. This guy escaped when he was about 7 lbs. figured he was gone forever. Disappeared in early June, reappeared as a full growed hog in November. All the tore up grass around him is what he was doing to the property when he came back. He was around 200 lbs on the hoof. It's amazing what these things can do and how well they can survive.

Terminate with extreme prejudice.

we shoot a lot of them around here. we keep a smaller one, every now and then. the rest, are for the buzzards. we do have a huge population of turkey vultures, and they need to eat too.

i spent a few hours today, on the west side of lake monroe, following a large group, by their trails, and giant scrapes they have created.

i saw what i believe was a panthers turd on the trail. there aren't supposed to be any around here, but it looked like it.

We usually just take the backstrap. T cuts through the hide across the back at shoulder level and just above the tail. Slice the hide between the cuts right down the backbone and the peel the hide back about 8" on each side, the remove the backstrap from each side. Start to finish under 5 minutes. No gutting.

True. Bc the alternative of having rednecks you don't know running around your property wreaking havoc is so much better than having the hogs tear shit up.

At least the hogs don't shoot the livestock or the house or each other...

Unfortunately, a lot of us have learned over the years that as bad as the hogs are, it's better to have hogs than to have hog hunters.
