My great aunt passed away early Friday morning and I was talking to her daughter on the phone. She was understandably upset and after a bit, her husband and I were talking. He told me that the state of Tennessee was putting out poisoned corn to help control the wild hog population. He said he had gone out three times to get a deer, but got nothing. He said he hadnt even seen any squirrels or rabbits, either. My BOL is in the Tennessee mountains and I was just wondering if anyone knew something about the state putting out poison. True, false, just a rumor?

I'm not in Tennessee, but I'm thinking fake. Those people have to realize that the hogs won't be the only critters eating the corn. But then again stupidity has no bounds these days.

Never heard of it and doubt that it would be done. Too much collateral damage to other species.

Here is a link to TWRA: http://www.tn.gov/twra/index.html and a link to the latest on wild hog control: https://news.tn.gov/node/13534 The TWRA would not do something like that, especially since their funding comes from sales of hunting licenses and fees. That said, I wouldn't put it past individuals from putting out poisoned corn. The reduced game animals are probably from 'yotes and feral dogs/cats.

Saw a piece on TV about Texas trying to invent a contraption that would allow hogs to feed on poisoned grain but would keep other varmints away. Don't have any idea if they've put them into use yet. But they were aware that they didn't want to poison just anything that wandered by across the board. Can't imagine anyone would! Can you imagine the scream fit the environmentalists would pitch!

I would say reduced game animals from the coyote. No shortage of deer in west Tennessee.

No shortage of deer is right. We were leaving the arthritis clinic in Columbia about 5:30 Tuesday evening and saw five deer in the yard next to the clinic.
