Their rooting around has spurred some small plants to grow in some of my mature timber areas and they have cleaned up some nasty thickets around field edges. They have not caused any damage to my garden plots that I have electric fence around. On the other hand they cause lots of problems for the farmers in the area. They will hit a field shortly after it’s planted and go right down the rows rooting out and eating the seeds. Several people have told me they will ruin the deer hunting but I haven’t seen that. They make great sausage, even the big boars. I hope we never get overrun with them like a lot of places have but as long as the population doesn’t explode I kinda like having them around. We spend a lot of weekends at our farm in the spring and summer and I enjoy hunting them at night when I’m done working for the day. If it works like before they will be on my farm for a year or two and then move on once they work the woods over feeding and rooting around. Then the browse will regrow nicely before they return. They are very smart creatures and not easy to hunt, kinda like turkeys. And they are tough as nails, I’ve seen a big boar take multiple hits with a 12 gauge slug and never slow down


Give them time. After a while, they will be destroying everything. Like white tail deer, I would be perfectly happy if they just went extinct. Used to think deer were destructive, but they are nothing compared to wild hogs.

Let us pray for farmers and all who prepare the soil for planting, that the seeds they sow may lead to a bountiful harvest.

Start setting your traps indoors in early October. Peanut butter is my bait of choice. Also, figure out where they’re getting in and seal those holes up. That’s for mice, not hogs. :D

Don, I bet it would work for hogs as well. It would just be easier to find out where they are getting in.
