Has anyone on here taken their dogs hog hunting here in NC? I've just found out how very common feral hogs are here in my part of the state, just like 15 miles from my restaurant. I'm going to start going up there and see how many I can come across. I've been told, at the right time, you can find herds of like 10 of them at a time....which is kind of scary. The guy said they get pretty big too, because there is nothing/nobody hunting them. Anyway, if I find out enough about them and anyone is interested in hunting them, let me know. Obviously, I'm not going to take my dogs out there without any training. But, I'd be glad to learn their habits and lead anyone who would want to do that, who already has experience of course.

If I could find a bunch of land for cheap (yeah, right), I'd by some acreage and put it to good use for hunting.

Wow. That sounds even much better than up in Corova. You could "host" training events (if they're legal) and hunts right there!!!

Wild pigs in the USA are going to be like the rabbit was in Austrailia. Their reproduction rate is unreal. In Arkansas (and most other areas) they are competing with the native wildlife: deer for acorns, eating ground bird's eggs, and killing young quail and turkey. The damage by rooting the ground makes the papers if it's someone's yard, but if its on a hillside or mountain, major errosion takes place (Hawaii and Smokey Mnts, Tenn) They need to be controlled/killed. Don't wait until your dog can help.

No problem. I'll buy my first gun and start right away. I'll take the dogs, just in case, but I have no problem curbing the problem myself.

The Ohio hunting regulations book instructs hunters to kill on sight. They are starting to be a problem everywhere. That's what you'd expect from an animal that breeds like rabbits and can eat ANYTHING! Cute little pigs. :lol:
