if those ranchers would quit charging to hunt hogs they wouldnt have this problem. Texas wildlife officials need to lift any season restrictions on hog hunting and advertise the heck out of it.

they could get a list of property owners, charge 50.00 for the day and the local hotels and restaurants would make a ton of money.

This is causing quite a stir in the Lone Star State. Texas Parks and Wildlife only requires that anyone hunting them have a license, but don't regulate seasons, bag limits or methods of hunting. A lot of outfitters and landowners are making money selling hunts and leases for hogs. Most set bag limits on their hunts, some don't. The Ag department approved the use of a Warafin based poison by landowners that want them controlled. The pellets are root beer barrel candy sized mouse poison but supposedly have double the strength of poison of commercial mouse/rat poison. Since the hogs are free ranging there is a lot of concern about hogs that are harvested for consumption.
Sounds like a they are opening a can of worms.

I understand that hunters can't make a dent in them. They scatter so fast after the first shot, hunters can't get but a few of a group and then they get scatted and lay low. I've seen pictures of cultivated fields being rooted up just before harvest, so bad they look like the fields had just been rototilled. I have seen ads in magazines about going to texas to hunt boar for free. Don't know if they allow heat sensing devices for hunting. Seems like something more than hunting needs to be done

It not unusual to see hunting parties with 2-3 guys killing a dozen or more in a night. A lot just dump them in a ditch or leave them where they drop for varmints and birds to feed on. There are no restrictions on methods, many use red or green lights over feeders.

even shooting from helicopters. will the PGC allow us to do the same when their hog study area goes berserk and they wind up all over the state or will they sell high priced stamps and have bag limits to get people back into hunting when the deer are gone.

have the insurance companies seen what happens when a car hits a hog ? they'll be glad to have the deer come back.

We were down there a few years back and tried to hook up a DIY hunt. Couldn't get a straight answer of whether we just needed a Nonresident license, or an Exotics. While there, we looked through the classifieds for processors and saw more than 1 article that said (paraphrasing) "If out of state, make sure you supply either a WCO in person, or an Exotics license."

Decided right there, they were more interested in making money than dealing with a hog problem. Offered help, they deciined, their problem. Good luck with it.

they should have a mosquito creek style hog hunt in Texas. invite folks from all over.

wont be a hog left in one week.

just let everybody know that each hog killed earns cash. if there is one thing PA hunters are good at, is killing anything thats legal.
