Feral Hog Control


This long nose boar feral hog got caught in one of our hog traps.  He and some buddies had been rooted in a hay meadow.



Too heavy for me to lift up and put on atv, so I used a slide.    The slide folds for easy of carry on front of atv.



It sure saves straining my back.



Loaded and ready to roll.  In thirty minutes, he will be in cooler covered with ice.

No more rooting in our hay meadows for this guy


Our hay meadows are constantly being destroyed by wild feral hogs.   This was one of about fifteen that entered a meadow just before dark.  He was too large for my atv to handle so I used the loader of our tractor.

Some Hog Dogs have it tough


This hog dog came in Second

when it had a fight with a

big boar hog (feral hog).

Several, several stitches

and it is ready to hunt again.

From now on,

it will be wearing a flak jacket.


These are the weapons

on a wild hog.

As evidenced above,

the tusk can rip a dog open.

They can take down a small deer

and have been known to attach humans.

And their numbers are increasing

at a dramatic rate in East Texas.

They got greedy


We have had the hog trap door wired open which allows the hogs to enter and exit without penalty.

After they become comfortable, we activate the trap.

In this trap are four pigs.



They will be great on the grill.

hogs, hogs, hogs on our deer lease eating our deer corn



December 6, 2012

they made a mistake


these guys and gals normally do not appear until after dark.

this day, they made a mistake and appeared while I was in hunting blind.



I tried to pick a smaller one that would be good eating.



I suggest to my grandsons

they place their shots in the animals ear.

No meat is wasted and if you miss

the animal does not run off wounded.

We’ve got a situation on our deer lease.

The population of feral hogs is exploding.

Momma can have three batches per year.


Once they eat all our corn,

it’s time for a snack from momma.
