    Yes, it is great having them running around for everyone to shoot, just so long as we continue to have greens without ecoli, food prices don't go up, your own property doesn't get damaged and your own life is not endangered on a constant basis... What a nice well rounded guy....

    Sorry forgot the sarcasm font. My bad, they are a blast to kill but I never get over how much damage they can do. Sorry guys didn't mean to ruffle feathers.

    In that case, I'd advise the use of :rolleyes: at the end of your sentence for all sarcastic remarks in your future posts....:)

    After re reading the heading and my statement I realized it sounded bad. My fault made sense in my head at the time.

    Sno, it was clear to me you had just snuffed 70 pigs in three days. As in most hog hunts I'm sure some were taken, going away, raking, running and under other less than optimum conditions. As a result, It is almost a certianty that considerable pain and suffering was inflicted upon said swine; therefore, it should have been clear to anyone digesting your prose that you were being fecicious.

    I would say if any feathers got ruffled, the feathers were in already in a state of pre-ruffledness just waiting to get ruffled. Life is very short and one should not spend any of it worrying about whether or not to add a smiley face at the end of a sentence.

    Please do not apologize, if your going to be a man, be a man in full, let your balls hang down like a Jersey Bull.

    Thanks for this. It made me laugh out loud. Now I need to clean the water I almost choked on up off the floor.

    If anyone thinks hogs are a problem ruining property, If any one thinks one should apologize for someone having fun on a hunt and being successful. If any one thinks hunting is a cruel sport. They should go join PETA.. I would trade all the hog problems that they complain about in other states for the WOLF problem Idaho has. At least hogs add to the game population giving sportsman better hunting opportunities. The wolves have taken over 70% of our hunting away!

    Hogs are a problem as long as they are alive IMO wolves are worse and should be dealt with, with equal vigor.

    No one seems to listen to the history of the re-introducing or introducing of game anymore. and
    it just ends up a disaster as always and we start all over.

    The alligator is a prime example. They were abundant but they were placed on the endangered
    list anyway. After a few years they became a real problem and lost there fear of man then they started attacking
    every thing and everyone. After many people and pets were lost the effected
    states were forced to start controlled thinning. They are still abundant but in most cases afraid
    of man again, and much less of a threat.

    The wolf will end up the same way when enough people are attacked and there is no more game
    for them to eat.

    I have seen other species introduced with devastating results. so as long as hogs are not protected
    by law, our rule is to shoot every hog we see no matter what shot is presented.

    A good hunter knows a lot more about wild life conservation than most of these experts think
    and fail to listen to us assuming that all we want to do is kill everything.

    Sorry about the rant.
