I can tell you've done this before.

Don't pursue them with a passion but pigs have happened here on occasion.

I haven't yet,with my disabilities it can be tough to get out,but hopefully next year I can get one or two,one thing about Tx is if you are a disabled Vet they give you a free fishing and hunting license for everything from freshwater/saltwater fishing to Deer/Turkey/Javelina and bird hunting

Never tried it myself but sure looks like fun:

I did for about 20 years when I was younger. Seems we allways had a hog ready to BBQ

This is a 525 pounder that my buddy nailed last Friday night. He doesn't even use dogs. You may note how lean this piggy is. He's been grazing a farmer's soy bean field. The meat looked like venison. My friend counted over 40 in the herd that he picked this one out of.

Be careful what you wish for ......... if ya get em ya wont be happy ya got em for long. They hurt deer a lot around here. Where deer are browsers and pick and nibble along the way. 3 or 4 small hogs under 100# will come thru and pick every acorn off the ground under a oak tree in about 30 minutes.
i wish. no wild hogs in wisconsin.
I shoot em all on sight regardless of size. We eat boars under 100# and sows up to 200#. The larger boars meat we feed to the dogs or freeze it and use it for trap bait.

That is great! But those licenses still cost more than anyone else pays. Thank you for you sacrifice.

Hog hunting in north texas is great fun, I use a 30-30 or 30.06 out of deer blind..set up lights with trailer lights for autozone red light gives enough light to shoot and doesn't scare the hogs...
I would rather live my life as if there is a God,
And die to find out there isn't, than live my life
As if there isn't, and die to find out there is.

We catch em. Shooting them is for girls :)
Besides the ones we are going to eat taste way better after a couple weeks of feed. About 80% of what we catch come out of gated golf course communities and we get paid $100 for each one. Most of the rest come out of orange groves and we do shoot quite a few of those. We get 8-18 a night in the orange groves when we go. We filled a pen trap on a golf course once with 16 and that was fun getting them out and into the trucks since we couldn't shoot them.
They are a major problem in Florida (and many other place). The guy I hunt with has several private contracts with golf courses and HOA's, one with the county, and several groves. Most of the shooting is with a .22 mag or shotgun.
No permit or season in Florida on private land. Shoot at night, no limit or closed season.
A word to the wise isn't necessary, save it for the stupid
