    Few wild animals I have ever shot and/or shot at, scatter & run as rapidly as feral hogs. If there are 50 of them in a field & one is shot, the remaining 49 are running at break neck speed in 49 different directions all at once~! Best weapon for them is a tripod mounted machine gun~but we can’t have any of those unless we pay a fee to the g’ment~!!!~Next best is the AR with really ‘hi’ capacity magazines~!!

    Please provide your sense of tolerance; from what I see you are highly intolerant to the practice of free speech and thought. You would be much better served posting all comment relevant to the subject and articles at hand and letting the reader make the decision you have taken upon yourself to control and dominate. Your behavior as such is discourteous and disrepectful. Every word, with this example, every vulgar and profane word is found in our dictionaries and posted as under common useage – and hardly anyone is offended by those words except the ignorant and pretensious and those person who wish to dominate others by their actions and control. Ignoring racisim doesn’t hide the fact there are other races; refusing to allow anyone to discuss race is a form of racism. And lastly, I am legally blind, to be able to read I have make every word in capitals to be able to better see what is written and I have to write with caps for me to see what is written, a blind thing, and therefor your discrimination on using caps discriminates against people like me who are legally blind. It is hard enough just living as a blind person; why do you have to make it harder still?

      Son I didn’t understand a word you just said…..

      I would compare that to a 150 yards shot with #8 pellets from a short barreled 12 gauge…all over the place.

    Here in MO we have a significant feral hog problem – mostly in the southern half of the state. A certain numbers of individuals with festered pimples for brains had the idea some years ago that wild hog (boar hunting as in Eurasia) would be great sport and released imported wild boar and hybrid boar on their properties. Of course, fences mean nothing to hogs. Some of those releasing hogs were (are) farmers and the rest are classified by definition as “brush-apes”. Attached to the idea was that ‘they’ could make easy money guiding or otherwise charging hunters to hunt hogs.

    Hogs are prolific breeders and populations get out-of-hand quickly! Our agency in charge of matters wildlife (Department of Conservation) – along with our DNR, DOH, Farm Bureau and others have determined that feral hog populations must be at least controlled. It is legal during deer seasons for hunters to shoot feral hogs without obtaining a license per se- with no limit – and with the clear understanding that farmer’s penned and domestic hogs are off limits. Some states have taken to using wildlife control officers in helicopters to tap all the feral hogs they can find. The matter is unknown to most of our citizenry and the brunt of jokes among many. To many farmers, other rural landowners and even some town folk, however, the situation represents a real problem.
