Agree, my son and I hog hunted a ranch near Paso Robles, Ca for several years at no charge. The owner passed and the new owner wanted $500 a day!! Checked around the area and that was the going rate, but the vineyard owners bitch like hell about hog damage with their hands out for any government $$$ assistance. Pork is relatively inexpensive here, I'll get mine at Safeway.
