Very Bad Choice Made By This Piggy

The Warp 7 claims yet another victim! 489 yds 3-4 mph wind condition at 8'oclock and right at 5:30 made the mistake of coming across the power line easment! The 150 SMK leaving the muzzle at 3290 did the job very nicely.

Saw quite a few deer as well but no monsters---they are chasing the girls as you can see in the last pic.

Re: Very Bad Choice Made By This Piggy

Thanks--this was a smaller sow but make no mistake they will tear you a new one if they can. Hopefully, will get to get rid of a few more this weekend but because my daughter came in from school only hunted 1 eve and one morn last weekend.

I hate the pigs with a passion--tear up everything they can and the deer hate to be around them! Will take another pic this weekend of the remains--between the other pigs, coyotes, buzzards and fire ants there will be nothing but maybe the skull and the rib cage. I always get the bottom tusk to give to people so they will know how SHARP that bottom tusk is! Will cut you like a knife.

Nice shot

Are they any good to eat, or are they just varmints? We don't have them where I hunt and have heard of folks hunting them but always assumed that they were meat hunting.....???

edge.

VERMIN!! Plain and simple they are shot on sight and left for the buzzards 99% of the time. A little piglet is tasty or a young one less tha 100lbs IMHO but the problem is they are usually shot in the summer early fall where the temps are high and that makes for challenge to process.

This is how the TPWD addresses hunting Feral Hogs “A landowner or landowner's agent may kill any nongame wildlife other than threatened or endangered species at any time in any number, provided the wildlife is not used in a commercial activity.” Furthermore states that a Hunting License to kill Feral Hogs is not required if: “Depredating feral hogs, if a landowner (resident or non-resident) or landowner's agent or lessee is taking feral hogs causing depredation on the landowner's land.”..

Both our Federal and TPWD Biologists have told us that they are the biggest threat to indigenous wildlife that exists in our area and that includes man.
