    I told some boys that dog them and they got on them hot and heavy. They killed a few but the pressure put them up the river about 5 miles and the fools up there loved them and protected them. Well now they hate them and between them pressuring them and reproduction I suspect they will be back.

    pressure will surely move them along,,,,they are way spookier than a deer,,,,

    Since there is no season and no limit, it shows the state has thought that for awhile.
    And as for outfitters only, hogs are on plenty of public land all across the state.
    Sadly, no one wants to put in the leg work to find them in todays "instant gratification" society.

    I mean just look at some questions on some sites.......if the guy would have just googled his question, he'd of had an answer a lot sooner........I'm not saying that applies to THIS thread though.

    When I first moved to FL I could not wait until I could fine a place with hogs on it. After killing a dozen one year and cleaning those nasty buggers I pay good $ to hunt land without them.

    They are showing up more regular on my place in Anson county now. FIL keeps a good look out for them and when sign shows up the dog boys are called and do a great job getting rid of them. I know it is only a matter of time before they become a full time problem.

    I'm not so sure.

    Have you heard of the Cobra Effect? The British wanted to reduce the number of snakes in India, and put a bounty on Cobras. It worked initially, til the Indians started raising cobras to sell for the bounty money. Eventually, they scrapped the program and the cobra farmers set their cobras free, making it even worse.

    I think that hunting is a way to maintain a population. If you want to eradicate a population, you look at similar but notably different measures.
