  • Thermal hog hunting.

    Unsportsmanlike conduct or necessary management tool?

    I am not sure there needs to be any sportsmanlike conduct in the attempt of ridding the country of feral hogs ! Since actually that eradication is impossible in the first place, any attempt to lessen the problem is a go.......!

        Think I gotta agree with you, bhr! 😉!

        Lot'sa missing going on too! LOL!
        First 2 or 3 shots are "killa"! Then, "active target" takes on a whole new meaning!

          As far as I'm concerned all is fair in the eradication of pests. I enjoy hunting and would certainly like a few hogs or coyotes around to chase but I could live without that if they are harming others. When coyotes became a problem around me, Federal game management staff used cyanide baits to thin them out. That would likely work for hogs too and could also be "fair".

            At one time, Texas A&M had (I think?) developed a toxin that only affected swine.
            For what ever reason, it was never released and the feral pig problem persists.
