Something tells me if they manage to cull most of em we crazy injuns will just release some moreI watched the show. Entertaining, but a little too dramatic and over the top in my opinion.
No offense to Georgia folks, but the show didn't do them much justice..
I thought the Russia footage was pretty cool.
If their statistics are right, it's amazing how prolific the pigs have gotten over the last 15 years.
I wonder how the DFG and the USFWS are looking at the local SD pig population. There might be some info on that big azz pig thread, but I'm not up to looking through all those pages of "fluff"...
That'll fill a few freezers! You're doing just a hair better than my 2 hogs.I don't know Tony but a bunch. Probably between 60 and 70, never really kept a count. Not hard to do when you have access to some private ranches that are loaded with pigs and hunt them over a 10 year period. A high school buddy moved from Laguna Niguel to a town called Bradley near Lake San Antonio because he was into water skiing. He bought 65 acres with a double wide mobile home for $160,000 and ran his insurance business from there. He was not even a hunter when he went up there but soon learned about turkeys, deer and hogs. Not long after that I got the call to come up hunting. Because he lived up there over time he got to be friends with alot of the property owners in the area which led to permission to hunt and gate lock combinations. We killed turkeys and deer but always enjoyed the hog hunting because it was consistent. We knew where they lived and how and when to find them. Between the two of us we probably killed well over a hundred, maybe more. He recently sold the ranch for $675,000 and moved his family to Texas and bought 80 acres out there. The deer are much bigger, pigs are everywhere and I have an open invitation to come out anytime, but it is just not as convenient as a short drive to the Paso Robles area.
As an interesting side note you mentioned a .44 Magnum wheel gun. The pig that I had mounted was killed with a Ruger Deerfield .44 Magnum carbine with a 4 shot rotary clip and a red dot open scope. I can not tell you how many pigs met their demise with that gun.
