    For those of you not watching the Oscars the Discovery channel at 7:00 is airing a special on the explosion of wild pigs across the U.S. called "Pig Bomb".

    Should be interesting...

    A little over the top, but fun to watch all the hogs and dogs. Now I'm hungry.

    That would be great practice for my trip to Africa... being charged at close range by something that can fug-u-up. Maybe only in my dreams, who's to know. The first :oinker: I got ( avatar photo) Was definitely handgun range. I'd say 25-30yrds would be no prob with my .44 mag wheel gun. THAT would be exciting!

    Lots of drama but that is typical on the Discovery channel. One thing looks certain...hog hunting should only get better.

    I have been very close to them while archery hunting. When sneaking in on a group of them what gets hairy is after the shot they all scatter in different directions at full speed. Getting run over is a concern as their vision is terrible.

    I have killed all kinds of pigs with some looking more feral than others but some definitely have a eurasion look to them...

    WOW! That is a nice hog. Very "Euro" looking. I like it. I hope the hog hunting gets better. Not that it's that bad, but if I could shoot 2-4 of those every year on public land... I'd be a happy man.:oinker::2gunsfiring_v1::food-smiley-014:

    These hogs were raised in Canada and are pure bred eurasions. The fur has much longer hair than the feral pigs common in California. These came from one afternoon of hunting at the Cedar Canyon Ranch near Tehachapi.

    Yeah, that is one nasty lookin critter. That's when you show up to private property and say " Good evening sir. We are here with the Beauro of fowl and dangerous critter management. We are going to have to check your property...." ;)

    i know they are bad for the enviroment.... but i would like to be able to get 1 or 2 a year as well.... and be pretty stoked

    i think the more densely populated they are in an area will cause them to be more agressive... just for competition reasons...

    but i think in a few years there will be a pretty healthy population out here

    Beautiful specimens Tim! Do you have any hog mounts? I still want to ( and don't you all go runnin off with my idea) Get a wild pig skin and make a football out of it. Hair and all. That would be a sweet trophy!

    Unless Gary shoots them all!:rolleyes: As soon as I get a chance, I'm going to go do some scouting, but with all the turkey hunters out there... maybe I'm better off to wait until after the spring season.

    Only had one mounted but there are others I wish I had because they had a unique look.

    Here is the before and after of the one that I had mounted as well as the one I regret that I did not...
