Coyote Nation: A Crash Course in Coyote Hunting

By Tom Carpenter January 30, 2017

It used to be that when small-game, upland bird, waterfowl, and big-game seasons ended, a hunter finally had a chance to pull up an easy chair next to a cozy fire, rest up, and reflect on an autumn well spent.

Ditch that notion. Winter is time to hunt the hunter. Coyotes are out there waiting in habitat near you, and all you have to do is go after them to experience some of hunting’s knee-shakingest thrills.

A Plague of Pigs in Texas

Now numbering in the millions, these shockingly destructive and invasive wild hogs wreak havoc across the southern United States

SMITHSONIAN MAGAZINE
JANUARY 2011

bout 50 miles east of Waco, Texas, a 70-acre field is cratered with holes up to five feet wide and three feet deep. The roots below a huge oak tree shading a creek have been dug out and exposed. Grass has been trampled into paths. Where the grass has been stripped, saplings crowd out the pecan trees that provide food for deer, opossums and other wildlife. A farmer wanting to cut his hay could barely run a tractor through here. There’s no mistaking what has happened—this field has gone to the hogs.

“I’ve trapped 61 of ’em down here in the last month,” says Tom Quaca, whose in-laws have owned this land for about a century. “But at least we got some hay out of here this year. First time in six years.” Quaca hopes to flatten the earth and crush the saplings with a bulldozer. Then maybe—maybe—the hogs will move onto adjacent hunting grounds and he can once again use his family’s land.

Wild hogs are among the most destructive invasive species in the United States today. Two million to six million of the animals are wreaking havoc in at least 39 states and four Canadian provinces; half are in Texas, where they do some $400 million in damages annually. They tear up recreational areas, occasionally even terrorizing tourists in state and national parks, and squeeze out other wildlife.

Pigs, Hogs & Boars: Facts About Swine

By Alina Bradford, Live Science Contributor | October 5, 2018 11:37am ET. This article was updated on Oct. 5, 2018 by Live Science Senior Writer, Mindy Weisberger.

Pigs are mammals with stocky bodies, flat snouts that can move independently of their heads, small eyes and large ears. They are highly intelligent, social animals, and are found all over the world.

Pigs are in the Suidae family, which includes eight genera and 16 species. Among those species are wild boars, warthogs and pygmy hogs and domestic pigs. Pig, hog and boar essentially describe the same animal, but there are some distinctions. A boar is an uncastrated male domestic pig, but it also means a wild pig of any gender. A hog often means a domestic pig that weighs more than 120 lbs. (54 kilograms). Pigs are also called swine.

Revenge of the Wild Pigs Goes Toxic

The wild pig bomb perpetually explodes. Shoot, trap, pressure and push, but the march of wild pigs continues across the United States. However, a chemical cavalry is approaching and may provide a major weapon in the control arsenal used by landowners and farmers: Kill the ultimate beast of survival with a poison pill?

Pigs Don’t Fly: Feral Hog Spread Is A Man-Made Mess

By Chris Bennett

Hidden inside covered trailers or hauled in plain sight under the cover of darkness, wild pigs are on the move. Even trussed in car trunks, stuffed in dog boxes, stretched across back seats, or openly sold on Facebook, wild pigs often march to a man-made beat. Bottom line: The spread of 6.3 million wild pigs across the United States is assisted by rubber tires.

Illegal transport is a major cause of increased wild pig presence, an advance which contributes to an annual multi-billion dollar bill.

Tactical to Practical: Hog Hunting With an AR-15

Like many American gun owners, I bought an AR-15 in 2008 because I was concerned that due to the shifting political climate, I wouldn’t be able to buy one in the future. The gun I bought in 2008 was my first AR, and since then, I’ve purchased other AR-15s to shoot in 3-gun matches, to use as a defensive rifle and to just go out and shoot and have fun.

HARVEST Louisiana’s Whole-Hog Heritage

Long before the chef John Folse became the living godfather of Louisiana cuisine, his boyhood task was to gather kindling during St. James Parish’s hog harvest celebrations, called boucheries. In the 1950s, every neighbor pitched in, but young Johnny kept getting distracted from his designated chore. “My brothers would be hauling wood out of the swamp,” he says, “but they could always find me watching the butchers cut, watching the cooks stir, and watching the pots bubble.”

Night Vision Preparation – 5 Top Tips

Realtree Pro staff hunting expert and night vision specialist Paul Hodson takes us through his Top 5 Tips for Night Vision Preparation.

Before you even think about going shooting with night vision, you’ll need to do your homework. It’s not about going into a field, scanning the land and simply shooting a fox. If you’re lucky enough to have been given permission to shoot over a farmer’s field, who’s the best person to tell you where the foxes are?

Top Tip 1: Communicate with the farmer.

The farmer is the person in the know.

THERMAL HOG HUNTING: 22 HOGS IN ONE NIGHT

Watch as a couple of hunters lay the smack down and shoot 22 hogs in one night during this wild and crazy thermal hog hunting trip.

Posted by John McAdams

Hogs are very intelligent and adaptable animals and learn very quickly to not venture out during the day in areas where there is lots of hunting pressure. When this occurs, doing some thermal hog hunting at night quickly becomes one of the few reliable ways to keep their numbers in check.

Apex Predator shares his hog hunting tactics

Cover ground and use your nose, Chauvin says

To be successful at hunting hogs on Louisiana public land, I use a combination of tactics. Maximum mileage covered by foot has continually proved most productive. Last season I harvested 72 pigs on several WMAs and NWRs — with only two taken from my tree climber.

When I’m after deer in the climber, I find it’s best to stay at locations hogs aren’t frequently visiting. But I love pig hunting, too, so on my midday missions I go after the hogs. (And during this process, I often find great deer hunting locations for the future.)

One thing I refuse to do is stop: From dawn to dusk I stay on the hunt every Friday morning through Sunday evening during the season.
