HOG killin in SO. GA.

Been down south a few weeks helping a few guys with a mess of hogs.Aint never seen anything like it,they came in on a p-nut crop 2500 ac. & 1000 ac. of beans. never seen that kind of damage before,There was 4 of us shooting dusk & dark took 106 hogs & pigs before they wised up to us.Gave alot to the food bank & some to the locals.The heat was to much to bear,hope to go back when it cools down some. We were using 25-06,270's,300WM they all did a good job on hogs. DO any of Ya'll have hog problems this bad in your end of the woods. If so I sure would like to hear what Ya'll are doing on your end.
We're doin traps,dogs, shootin a lot. thanks GUYS.

    My buddy's family has had a lot of hogs on their place. When they looked into having folks come in with a helicopter they asked how many they typically kill on a helicopter hunt. The last two nights from the helicopter the least they had killed was in the mid 70's. For the rough, dry country we live in, that is a lot more than we expected. I can't imagine how many we'd have if we had peanut fields.

    I know what you mean I cant imagine shooting at night or being able to use helicopters.I think when we go back we'll be able to shoot at night with a crop damage pass.couldnt even get a head count at night to many to much movement.caught 60 in traps,dogs got another dozen in 7 days.No end in sight.

    That's crazy. I'm over toward Augusta and I'd love to be able to hunt in an area like that.
