    Most of the places we used to hunt hogs are developed and full of houses. This year I probably found a decent place, I should know in about two weeks.

    We have to hunt hogs every couple of years to control the population. I will shoot one if I see one when I am deer hunting on the family place

    I would like to try it sometime, but thankfully there are not many here in MI yet. Maybe I'll need to look into a different state. Anyone know off hand about Arkansas? I know "Google". :)
    I do like pork better than venison. I would think that I could use my Win. 30-30 too or maybe the .45 ACP carbine at closer ranges.

    If I shot a pig in these parts, some farmer would be VERY upset with me!

    Looking to take two of our 10 year old grandsons next spring if I can sneak them out of school! It will be their first hunt and my 6.8mm M6-A2 stock will adjust to the correct pull for either of them!

    I look at it as helping stop the bacon shortage as well as getting some HOT sausage.

    We do it primarily for population control. We also trap. I think my favorite technique is sitting in the tripods (normally used for deer) at night, and using a night vision scope atop my dad's FN AR. Mucho Fun-o!

    This is by far my favorite hunting! Here in North Texas they are out of control so there are always farmers looking for people to help with cutting down the population. In some areas around here they have done a ton of damage to land, fences, crops, etc. I enjoy hunting them any way I can. I've got one buddy that has a couple of AR10's with NV optics that we'll use and stay out all night hunting. Also have a buddy that uses dogs, talk about an experience! Dogs are fun but are way more work than rifle hunting lol.

    Anything over 75-100lbs we just drag off and leave for the other hogs and critters to eat. The ones that are 50-75lbs are some good eating though.

    I've got 2 in my life. The first one was 257 pounds and still very tender and flavorful. The second was over 400 pounds and very tough. I had to make jerky out of it. Here is a pic of my first hog and it on my wall.

    Awh the cutters are phony! The real ones were only half the size. I told the taxidermy too make it look mean and he did. Now I wish I wouldn't of done that.
