    I don't disagree, but that's not the point.

    The point is... they allow ya to hunt hogs for free.

    I still can’t imagine why anyone would pay to shoot a pig...:scratch:

    They either want the money from it or they want em gone! People that have the hog problem have learned that hunting just scatters the hogs around and makes em spookier. Which makes hunting, and trapping progressively tougher.

    After watching the pigs root up about a quarter of my food plot this week, I used the full moon last night to stalk up on them. I got within about 25 yards, and I guess they smelled me. The group ran into a privet thicket, but this one hesitated. Indecision is the worst decision. I didn’t go looking for him until this morning. A wounded pig in the dark could lead to a dangerous situation. He ended up on making it about 10 yards into the brush.

    Nice pig RM! You mentioned a couple posts earlier why anyone would pay to shoot a pig. You be surprised how many landowners complain about pigs. Then, if you tell them you’d be happy to help them out, the story changes to hum hawing around and kicking dirt.

    If you’ve never lived or hunted on a place with pigs, you don’t understand the difficulty in hunting them. I’m sure landowners would be more willing to let a random person come out to “shoot” a pig if it was only that easy, but unfortunately, it’s not (at least on my places). Pigs are nomadic, and they may show up for a day or maybe a week and be gone again for a week or maybe a month.

    The pigs eating my corn and ravaging my food plot right now have only been coming in for a few nights, and most nights they’ve been there between 2-4 in the morning for an hour or so. I don’t know about you, but I can’t sit up all night with the hope that a pig might show up. It just happen to work out last night that they were there around 8pm. My cellular game camera told on them, and the full moon made the stalk possible.:thumb:
