. Florida's Wild Hog Problem is starting to touch home. Or at least in my Neighborhood. Just two street over my Neighborhood touches on a State Preserve. SPORT OR PROBLEM???? No one is paying me so right now it is a sport. My neighbors are having their yards tore up so I decided to fill my freezer. Attached are pictures of 2 smaller pigs under 100 pounds. They are both in my freezer. I snared both of these a couple of nights apart. Snares are inexpensive way of trapping pigs. They require very little Baiting and after a quick survey of the area. They are set on pathways and checked the next morning. BTW by picking certain paths and sizing the snare, you can target large, medium or small Hogs. I wanted the better meat yearling that were just under reproductive age. PROBLEM: The Problem with control IMHO. No one is approaching the problem correctly. These are social animals that travel in Packs called SOUNDERS. Therefore control should be aimed at the Pack and not trapping or shooting a individuals. I am a firm believer in trapping the total sounder. I have been following several research programs on Hog Control. Poisons are being looked at very hard. However outside of Government research poisoning hogs is still illegal. Main problem with poison is hogs are very resistant to all kinds of poison. By the time the hog eats enough poison they present a eco problem with secondary contamination. .
