It's a lot cheaper to hunt them than raise them. Cook the meat good.

Also something to worry about is the squid population growing in the ocean, there has been a sharp rise in squid population since 2006. They are taking over the ocean like pigs are taking over the land. But they are much more aggressive, if you'd believe that.

Maybe we need to advertise this huge boar poplulation in the Middle East. Maybe it would slow the muslim poplulation from coming here or wanting to take over.

Yeah, my first thought was "Are they dropping them on cities or just troop concentrations over in Libya?"

Seriously...I do think that it would help the food supply. Have heard some of them lil piggies get pretty big around here (TN) though...and are supposed to be mean.

Anyone ever came across one or killed a wild boar? Just curious as to whether their aggressive temperament is all that they say. Hope not.
I have and still hunt wild/feral boar, they can get pretty mean and it isn't just the ones you see that you have to be worried about it is the ones that you don't see, there are packs of them, usually a group of females to protect the young. My BIL had a dog killed by havalenas in TX while hunting them, A Pit/rottie mix, pig came out of bush and gored him before anyone could get shot off. That is why I hunt them from tree stands much safer 15 ft off the ground.

Cut down the middle and slow roasted in a smoker for 24hrs, using hickory and cherry wood. maybe a little salt and pepper but thats it. Meat will fall off the bone.

In locations where feral pigs have more recently been discovered it is likely that these "run-wild" individuals are the result of unintentional escapes from domestic swine facilities, escapes or releases from game farms, or illegal stocking. Biologists estimate the nationwide population of feral pigs to be around four million animals.

They also reproduce twice a year with 6-8 piglets can breed at 6 months.

Wild Pig populations in North America were growing at a consistant, controllable rate from Columbus up til the 1990s. Something in the 1990s changed and the population bomb went off.

There are a variety of theories and reasons why the bomb went off, but it's actually somewhat related to gun control and hunting restrictions in various states.

Wild Pigs left with a decent food source and left alone can double their population every 6 months. Considering they can eat about anything and gun laws and hunting rules restrict proper culling, they expect the population to spread as far north as Wisconsin within the next decade.

You'd have to kill 7 of 10 adult breeding age wild pigs yearly just to hold the population at its current levels.
Uhhh, hunting feral pigs without license year round is allowed in almost all areas where there is a known population, so I don't think it had to do anything with restriction on "culling". In most areas they are a problem farmers and wildlife officials actively encourage their hunting. Indeed people are now using NVDs to hunt them at night.

The rumor is (and I believe there may be some validity to it) that some misguided (read, plain stupid as sh**) induhviduals imported some wild boars from Europe/Russia and let them loose to interbreed with the feral pigs - the purpose being to establish a population of wild boars to hunt (and to charge for guided hunts). So now we also have these wild boars out there to boot.

In a SHTF situation, if it was bad enough, we would have feral pigs, feral cattle and feral dogs. Not to mention any exotics (lions, tigers, etc.) that are currently kept by exotic pet owners.

In NZ they have significant populations of both feral pigs and feral cattle in some areas where there are/were abandoned farms.

Dogs running loose in a total TEOTWAWKI situation I would probably shoot on sight. Feral dogs are a significant problem right now, in a TEOTWAWKI situation they would be a much bigger problem because a lot of pets would suddenly turn feral.

Kill a few a year. Taste better than domestic hog. You've nothing to fear from them unless you corner them. Even mothers with young are faster that ann hell. They may mock charge, but in the end, they just flee. In my experience anyhow.

Hes from kansas, doesn't stay warm as long as it does down south. I agree we see about 3 to maybe even 4 litters a year. I think the 4 was last year as it was pretty long and warm summer.
