    Thatís interesting. Especially that they have stopped the hunting as it increases the population. We all know this to be true. Its the same as coyotes. I know a guy through a friend that killed 60 last year and his buddy killed 87. All in the same area. Did nothing to the population. Its to bad the deer donít have the same instincts and biology. Myself Iíd love to hog hunt. Not at the expense of our farmers and our area getting overrun with them. Unfortunately, if the hogs are coming thereís nothing we can do to stop it.

    It seems to be a trait among Liberal/Democrat governments where they never learn from other's mistakes. When the Wild Boar population explodes even after there's been no hunting,that should lay that theory to rest for good. We'll see.

    Yes those are cheaper then the PA hunts I looked at. Maybe because they have so many that are damaging crops and they just charge enough to cover food, gas and a couple dollars for their time. I don't mind paying for their time.

    Don't know if this is relates to this thread but I read this news article last week. A Texas woman killed the driveway of the women who she was supposed to be a caregiver for.

    Link: https://globalnews.ca/news/6218148/t...by-feral-hogs/

    Caregiver Christine Marie Rollins, 59, was supposed to visit an elderly couple at their home in rural Anahuac, Texas, on Sunday.

    She never showed up. The hours ticked by until finally, one of the seniors went to the front window and looked out on the driveway.

    Thatís when the couple saw Rollinsí car in the driveway and her body on the ground, partway between the car and the front door of the house.

    Rollins showed up for work at about 6 a.m. that day but was attacked and fatally injured by a pack of feral hogs on her way from the car to the house, according to the Chambers County Sheriffís Department.
    Part of the article.

    I never seen wild boar around here but I would love to hunt some.

    I'd say it fits here as well as anywhere.

    Attacks on people are NOT as rare as the article may try to have you believe.

    Deaths( human) from hog attacks are rare, but attacks are fairly common.

    In the past attacks have been in Rural locations, but the number of Urban attacks is making a sharp rise as feral pigs begin to colonize the parks and green spaces of towns and cities.

    Thanks for sharing was just seeing how accurate the map could be. If you didn't take them, there could of been a liter by spring.
