    Yes sir its a blast.
    Mrlawler it all depends, on this place in the rules if you take it you have to kill it so usually will use a big knife and stabbed in the heart. These ones were all too small for what we wanted and the closest one to the truck when we caught it was about 6 miles so we didn't want to drag it out. So in that case we Mark or tag the Hogs so if we get drawn again or one of our friends and they catch it the next year they know it's already been caught. The main reason you see these Hogs tide is because we have a lot of dogs and we have to tie the dogs up get them on leashes and let most of the guys walk with the dogs away Wall one lucky guy gets to stay there untie that pig and get away as fast as he can or get a tree LOL

    Now places we have permission to hunt a lot of times when we catch him will take him back to a big hog pin and grain feed them with corn clean out their system get all the nastiness out and sell them for butcher for smoking etc.

    Sorry Mrlawler, not sure what to make of your statement if its sarcastic or funny or what?

    But if you are saying the second option of catching then putting in a pin and corn or grain feeding to butcher or cook later, then yes I agree I prefer that way to. We usually try to hog hunt always like that and we have nuisance permits and we are nuisance Hunters, we are licensed to transport live Hogs which a lot of people aren't.

    No if you're gonna terrorize the animal I would prefer you take it out quickly.. But if you want to take it home and clean it out the dispatch cleanly that's at least a little different. That's just me..I have no issues with folks making money or how you want to spend yours.. just not something I would do.. But it's much better than blowing them up..

    Okay I guess like they always say Different Strokes for different folks. We consider it a sport, sometimes catch and release just like bass fishing for offshore fishing. And there's definitely really no money that we make we just try to recover our money for gas and corn doing something we love.

    Looks like lots of fun. We used to do some hog hunting with dogs in Southern Arkansas. If the hog was a small male we'd cut him and turn him loose. Kill any big boars.

    Yes sir, we love it. We use Black mouth curs and some breeds we have crossed to make good dogs. We dont use pits anymore.

    And we can kindly disagree about pits for pets

    According to what i have read the last few years the wild hogs have gotten to be a big problem in many areas in this country and still growing. I know they hunt them here in NC in some counties. The yotes have exploded here also. Looks like you guys had some fun hunting them. Wished i was able to do it.
