when you say caught, do you catch them in a trap, with dogs, or how. We are just begining to get a few and would like to know how we might control them. also, is the first picture of the hog with the feet tied of a live or dead hog? Did you tie him if he was alive?

I figured as much based on the height of the steering wheel. Dogs, guns and pigs makes for a good time. :nod:

Why did you release the hog?
Tom

most of what we caught were boars so we casturated them and turned them back out. we thought we'd still have that lease this year but they went up alot on the price. so we did that to still have them and kill them when they got bigger to get more meat out of them.

Controlling hogs is kinda of like picking a turd up from the clean end.
If you have 100 hogs according to the game biologist here you need to kill 76 a year to stay at 100.
Controlling hogs is a full time job with lead, trap's and bait and your still going to loose.
The best you can do is to put enough pressure to move them.
Corn soaked in coal tar will kill them Black Flag dead.

Thanks for the advice on them. We are just getting them so I have a lot to learn.
Coal oil was given by old people as a remedy for something but I can't remember what. I do remember taking it as a child. Very small dose but tasted like sh/?.

Every hog here is innocalated with lead no exceptions you will fast become public enemy number one for catch and release in this part of the country. Hog dogs are public enemy number two and I am a dog hunter.
Hogs have every fence in this country tore up dogs after a big boar or sow will tear down every fence they hit doesn't mean anything to a hog.

true we had this problem at the pasture behind our house. all of those hogs were shot or trapped and then shot. but this was a hunting lease and the "boys" had to have something to do every weekend and i went along to sew dogs up if need be.

I've heard that hogs are easily scared out of an area if you pressure them. Is this true or just bs. It seems that the hogs on our deer lease have setup camp and are staying. In the past I might see sign or get pictures once a year where it seems they are just passing through. But this time we have seen them and found rootings for about two months now. I would like to get them out of there but in the meantime I would like to kill a few. Any knowledgable hog hunters out there have any info about them?
