    I agree,,,,,everyone "wants to help you with your problem hogs",,,,,,heck we have folks JOINING (paying) the club just so they can run them varmits in the off season (deer/turkey),,,,,killing all they can,,,,,

    I expect I've killed and/or caught with traps and dogs more than my share of them, we were at it almost daily for years. I hope I never see another one or another field rototilled up by them.

    A lot already do but still charge for hunts to off set costs/ make it worth their while etc etc.... and there aren't many decent sized farms that don't already have 1 or more hunting leases on em

    Lacey Act, is that what goes on at some bars close to the speedway. J/K.
    If most folks knew what was gonna happen if they are charged/convicted under the Lacey act, they would be alot more careful when they get in their truck and head OOS to hunt anything.

    If NC wanted to get rid of hogs they would make it illegal to hunt them. As long as you can hunt them and people can make money charging for it, the population will grow.

    That's what TN did. It has a few flaws but the basis for it makes sense.

    In WV the DNR treats them like big game with very strict rules on hunting them. The population is growing, but anyone who's had these critters on their property wants them exterminated.

    The reasoning behind that is probably the same reasoning NC had in the mtns. Those pigs are probably the Russian boars that originated from Europe and are pretty much truly wild and Un-domesticated vs the others are "feral hogs" meaning they are here from Spanish explorers and/or have gone wild from once domesticated herds. Either way there all detrimental. Just explaining the differences.
