Very true. I read that Texas just instigated an all out war on them and open hunting season. I know there used to be members here that did hog hunting. I don't have a problem with it. The dogs love doing it and it is in their nature to hunt so why not use their prey drive to do some good. I personally wouldn't do it with my dogs, because I would be afraid they would be hurt and I wouldn't hunt anyway.T - I think you are right about the hogs not being native. Farmers would keep pigs on farms and others brought boars from Asia, well the boars and pigs would get out and breed and eventually became feral. They are not only a nuisance but they are very dangerous and will attack humans that cross their path.
You can get protective vests and collars for your dog. I actually have one that I am selling. It is a vest with a collar sewn on. the dog is protected from where his jaw meets his neck all the way below his rib cage.lol i am with yall... thats what ABD were made for actually...i would love to do it... but i am so afraid my dog would get injured
My thoughts exactly. I don't see any real problem, other than the danger to to dogs. Too each his own I guess. I'd rather use the dogs to track it and then use a rifle. I just think it's more humane. I'm a butcher and was farm raised, so I certainly have no problem with killing animals for food, but hunting isn't for me anymore I'll still take coyotes and foxes though.I don't really have a desire to hunt or kill anything. I know we have an overpopulation of deer, so they need to be culled, but I just don't want to do it personally. I've never seen wild hogs, and I'm sure they can root around and cause problems but, again, it's just not for me. Also, a wild hog can do some real damage to your dog, if it gets a good shot in. To each, their own.
Wow, someone must live near Boulder.mmm..now that makes a ton of sense to me. Hunting is not for me but, I'll still take an animal I wouldn't ever concider eating? Or do you eat coyotes and foxes...oh it is a pelt bounty you are talking about.
