Probably the number one question we get from people is, “Do you know of anyone who will let me come shoot their pigs for them?” While we do not keep track of or provide that information, we can suggest how to go about finding hunting opportunities. So if you are thinking “I’m willing to help” we hope this blog will increase your chances of getting on the other side of the gate.

COLLEGE STATION – With a proliferation of feral hogs in Texas, control measures such as trapping and hunting can yield the rewards of good table fare. However, feral hogs can carry parasites, such as hookworms, and experts advise to use safe cooking practices before consuming the meat.

Coldspring property owner strikes back against feral hogs – Houston Chronicle

Pork will be on the menu a lot in the coming weeks for Terry Holcomb of Coldspring following a successful hunt for feral hogs on May 18. Holcomb trapped 19 of the reported 40 feral hogs that have been digging up his lawn and tearing up fruit trees.

“The rest of the pigs have left the area. They haven’t been back since Saturday,” Holcomb said.

Feral pig biology and distribution

Feral pig biology and distribution

Origin

The feral pig in Australia is a descendant of various breeds of Sus scrofa, the domestic pig. In the north of Australia there is some indication that a number of other species of pigs were also brought to Australia, including Sus celebensis and Sus papuensis.

Records indicate the presence of domestic pigs immediately following the arrival of the First Fleet. Pigs were kept by settlements unrestrained and in semi-feral conditions. Stock could readily escape and wander, and by the 1880s pigs had run wild in NSW.
