wild hogs

  1. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    A few weeks ago a buddy of mine and I got a call saying my son-in-law and his friends needed some help getting a hog out of the woods. The dogs had chased the hogs a long ways from the boat, so far that the hunting party needed help packing the hogs. My buddy and I hook up with the hunting...

    My son-in-law has some hog dogs and will from time to time go down to the Angelina River close to Jasper Texas to catch some hogs. On November 24, the dogs chased the hog far away from the boat, I was called in to help. First we had to pick up one of the hunters, bring him around to the boat...

    Its post SHTF, you and your family need something to eat, so the yall head out to a local river. The dogs are let loose, a few minutes later the dogs corner up a 200 pound boar hog. The boar hog is loaded in the boat and brought back home. A pen is hastily assembled out of whatever materials...
  4. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    For years I've butchered my own game animals, even farm animals (mostly pigs and goats!). But I've had this problem, that I've always wondered what other folks do. When you butcher animals, what do you do with the ribs? How about the Fat? The reason for the question, I ask my friends what...

    A buddy and I kilt these pigs Friday evening. I was using the 10mm upper on the M16 lower, while my bud used his suppressed 9mm upper on his M-16 lower. I took the male (bottom) home with me and processed it that night. He was around 4-5 months old and weighed about 50 pounds. There are pigs...

    (From time to time we see discussions on whether or not survivors will be able to "live off the land" after disaster. Well, this article shows that if the survivors live in certain parts of the country -- and like pork -- they'll probably do just fine :)...
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Now it just dawned on me that I've read a lot of threads on after a SHTF there will be no food left to hunt in the bush. Now as I understand it there are millions of juicy pork chops running around the US and they breed like there's no tomorrow. So wouldn't this be a viable food source at any...

    Anyone see the TV specials on the explosion of the feral pig population? Supposedly they number in the millions now. Maybe that will help with the food supply soon.
  9. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have been wanting to put together an article on hunting for some time now. So on this lazy sunday morning, I decided to throw something together. During the great depression of the 1930s, whitetail deer and wild turkey were almost hunted to extinction in certain areas around the USA. From...

    My daughter and I went to the deer lease today to check on everything. The good news, all of the stands were still up. The bad news, one of the feeders had been knocked over - I guess by wild hogs - and damaged pretty bad. The motor housing has been broke off, and the plastic drum has been...
  11. Hunting and Trapping General Discussion
    I searched thoroughly but I couldn't find a discussion about it. I know there has to be one but maybe I don't know the right terms. I always search before posting because everything has been covered. Now this is my situation. I got 14 acres of land in the mountains of Puerto Rico. This is going...

    Hey Everyone, I would like to take my Son and Daughter hog hunting but am willing to hunt anything that is a nuisance. I live in the DFW area and thought we could help each other out. Please message me if you have a population problem. Thanks in advance! Kevin M. Fox

    I've been told the best eating pigs are between 150# and 200#, and so that's the size I usually go after if I have a choice; but here's the lesson learned this past weekend... I went hunting this past weekend with an old friend and he shot two boars on Sunday morning. One was about the right...

    It is believed that hogs were first introduced into the United States by Hernando de Soto in or around 1539. Recent excavations from some of Hernando de Sotos' encampments in Florida have discovered jaw bones of pigs and other swine bone fragments. Hogs are a true omnivore, meaning that they...

    How to track wild hogs Wild hogs are very good source of fresh meat. Most states have a year round open season, with both of those factors, these beast should not be over looked. Some of these wild hogs can exceed 300+ pounds - talk about being able to feed a family if SHTF. First: Wild hogs...
