County leaders, U.S. Forest Service plan to take action on wild hogs in our area

 

LAND BETWEEN THE LAKES, KY — They eat everything, they have no natural predators, and they’re dangerous.

We’re talking about wild hogs, and they’re being spotted right now in our area.

We showed you pictures and videos from Land Between the Lakes where hogs are causing problems.

Tony Folz has been dealing with wild hogs destroying his crops since 2002.

“72-acre field, and when we came up four days later, it was gone,” Folz says. “We replanted that field, and within a few days, it was gone again.”

KSHN Radio 99.9 FM – Feral hog hunting policy change

Feral hog hunting policy change

A recent change in policy from the Texas Parks and Wildlife Department regarding feral hogs may help with the control of the invasive creatures and the damage they inflict on property across the state. Liberty County’s Texas Game Warden Lauren Iles spoke recently to the Liberty Rotary Club. She said hog hunters no longer need a hunting license to take feral hogs. Game Warden Iles said feral hogs are now considered to be what is called a “depredate” or naturally destructive species ….  Read more at link below

Pearls for swine: Bill could create feral hog bounty hunters | State | enidnews.com

State Rep. David Smith, R-Arpelar, has proposed legislation that would create a feral hog bounty hunter license. Under the measure, landowners interested in having wild swine hunted will register and pay 25 cents an acre, and make their property available to license holders.

Prospective bounty hunters, meanwhile, will pay $35 to obtain a six-month license.

WHY WOULD A LAND OWNER PAY THE GOVERNMENT TO ALLOW STRANGERS TO HUNT ON THEIR OWN LAND.  LETS SEE, PURCHASE A LICENSE FOR $35 AND GET TO HUNT ON PRIVATE LAND???

SOUND PRETTY STUPID, BUT THAT IS JMO.

Bear Tears Into Hogs In Trap

By Gon Staff on December 24, 2018

Larry Davie, of Waycross, went to check his hog trap and found six dead hogs in the trap, torn to pieces.

“Glad I had the trail camera on the trap,” said Larry.

Otherwise, he might not have known for sure what occurred on the Ware County hunting property. In the final trail-cam picture in a series of more than 35 images captured on the camera, the bear opens the trap door and exits.

Wild Hog Facts | Mossy Oak

AN INTELLIGENT CREATURE CAUSING A WIDESPREAD PROBLEM

There are many surprises when it comes to the wild hog that both baffle the biologist and cause aggravation to the land owner.

There are many headlines in regards to the quickly increasing numbers of wild hog in the United States; and although forty states claim the species, the highest numbers exist in the state of Texas (followed by California and Florida.) You would think that with such high numbers we would speaking about a creature that’s native to the U.S.; however, that is not the case at all.

  • The pigs are a menace for agriculture but also a health risk and threat to native wildlife.
  • The federal government is spending about $30.5 million annually to fight the problem and may get more money from the 2018 farm bill.

10 Best U.S. States to Go Hog Hunting

With feral hog populations exploding all over the United States, there are a lot of great places to hunt hogs.

It is thought that the first hogs in the United States were introduced in the 1500s by Spanish explorers. Since then, the hog population has ballooned and their range has expanded dramatically thanks to their prolific breeding (supplemented by hogs that escaped from farms and those introduced specifically for hunting).

On a warm June day, a crew of MDC biologists traveled to document a population of Mead’s milkweed, an endangered plant.

Like other milkweeds, Mead’s serves as critical habitat for the monarch butterfly and other pollinators vitally important to agriculture and wildlife. This population occurs on a remote glade, a unique type of desertlike habitat, in the shadow of Taum Sauk Mountain. The …

Hog Charges Officer


Walton County deputy sheriff is charged by vicious wild hog.

Working in law enforcement can result in some interesting calls, but some calls go beyond what even an officer of the law can imagine.

Rock Podeszwa, a deputy sheriff in Walton County, recently received a call around five o’clock in the afternoon regarding a vicious and angry wild hog.

“At first I thought for sure it was going to be like a piglet or a domestic pig,” Rock said. “I was receiving information from dispatch that the wild hog was trying to attack and charge the neighbor, trying to charge the female and trying to get at her goat and her dog.”

Public-Land Hog Hunting In August

In answer to the above, I do love hunting enough to brave the heat, further enhanced by the fact that WMA hogs have been left alone for nearly three months. A calmer animal is easier to hunt. Because of the heat, they can be easier to pinpoint as they will be drawn to the cooler swamps, drainages and floodplains to wallow and lay up. If a high and dry food source is a good distance away, they will have a very defined travel corridor, there and back. Cut across some fresh sign, and track ’em down.
