What can I do to rid my property of wild hogs?March 10th, 2011 by Grant Woods
Do you have any wisdom that could help us control these aggressive pests?
I am sorry to hear that hogs have reached your property. They can wreak havoc. The most effective method of reducing hog numbers is trapping. I strongly recommend you attempt to limit the hogs with a very aggressive plan. This will be much less expensive than the damage they will cause. This requires setting up a large trap (fenced in area with a gate) that allows a group to fit within. There are gads of setups out there. The second recommendation is to never let any leave alive. Hogs are highly intelligent animals and quick to learn.
In addition to trapping always take the opportunity to remove any you see while hunting or working on the property. I’ve worked on properties in that part of the world that removed over 180+ hogs per year and they kept on coming. So buckle down and be prepared for a long road ahead. I consider wild hogs extremely damaging to native habitat and critters. I dispatch each one I can.
