/ Caught 4 small feral hogs at a time, this morning #51
People in Texas are better about solving their own problems than some places that look to government for their needs. As i said in an earlier post,it requires cooperation of all landowners in a large section of land. It resembles mosquito control in some ways. Ideally the area is bordered on all sides with barriers like multi-lane roads,rivers,dense population,large expanse of barren land and such. With citizen cooperation Texas Parks And Wildlife is pretty good about helping.I live in East Texas and own a small 92 acre ranch. Hogs have torn up my pasture on several occasions. And no one in the government seems to care. If this type thing were happening in a city (versus rural areas), the government would be spending billions of dollars to find a solution. Just not enough voters out here in the sticks.
They are claimed to be very intelligent, so who knows what gos through their little heads?No one in their right mind believes the feral hog population conforms to state borders implied by this graphic. The California border being a total joke. Wonder how the pigs decided to stay away from ONE county in each of Texas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, Louisiana ? And how did they decide to occupy one county in North Dakota? Get serious.
You actually get winter in Northern California, right? I would think the hogs would hate that.
I really dislike them darn liberal hogs. Send 'em out here to razorback land and we'll make sure they'll look like swiss cheese. Really sorry your government & environmental wacko's are so uptight about guns and hunting crittersLast year, I made a trap for wild hogs( feral hogs) because they were damaging my orchard and gardens so badly.
This morning , I caught 4 small feral hogs at a time, a total of 8 hogs ever since.
And still so many hogs I can see in the video.
It is happening in northern California.
I don't think he was aiming his comment at you, but the folks that made the sanctuary that is allowing the hogs to multiple and go everywhere else. adjacent to the Fed land..I don't know. I can't answer that. Maybe they didn't "decide anything" and just not there yet. Don't like the graphic? It is just information. It is a "generalized resource map". That is the type of map that was used to indicate areas where deer needed to be reported for Wasting Disease. As far as being in my "right mind" try to remember I simply posted information and did not draw the graphic. i guess you would have to let the USDA reply to that. I don't recall saying feral hogs follow state borders. But you apparently seem to have thought that was the case.
Just a simple discussion on a forum. Your response, for some reason, seems a little strong. I don't think there is any other explanation needed.
