    One caveat: In the State of Kansas, Landowners or legal occupants of the land or their employees may shoot feral hogs on their property without a permit. AND, I believe when the feral hog problem is recognized as the ecological threat it actually is, there will be unlimited hunting allowed.

    You can't hunt hogs in Missouri now either. The state has been trapping and shooting from helicopters. They claim the hunters mess up their trapping.

    Alabama claims to have a hog problem, yet hunting them is pretty heavily regulated. Since DCNR can't stand the thought of just letting us hunt them with minimal regulation, they're planning to start poisoning them this year.

    Isn't it just like government to want to control everything with the taxpayers footing the bill for them. Just let the public have the option of at least being able to put some meat on the table. When you start poisoning them, scavengers, both wild and domestic, (dogs) end up getting into the poisoned meat, thus causing a chain reaction. Selling some inexpensive tags would at least generate some revenue, instead of expending it. By the way, good shooting. Nice little piggy. That size seems to eat better I'm told. Hope you enjoy it.

    We have em here in PA in certain areas thanks to the genius of paid fence hunting outfits and the lack of the state doing anything about the import of them. There are wonky laws and special areas. Areas where they are trying to trap them you can't take any of them nor hunt for them. In all other areas you can hunt them but only if hunting for other animals. That is at least the way I read it. Even in the closed areas where they are trapping they only trap in certain seasons. I have plenty of doubts that the plan the PGC is doing will work.

    I can only imagine if they got to Montana, what the weather didn't kill the wolves, coyotes, cougars and bear would.

    Same with NW Iowa and South Dakota. One hand wish there was some, but the more logical side says "NO WAY"

    Another bites the dust. He got 3 couple weeks ago, this one last week, all with 40SW. Been teasing him about BBQ so this one is strung up. I'm relaxing with Tamiflu. He & wife using pistols.

    This is not entirely true. Not legal on lands owned or run by the Missouri conservation dept.

    To All,

    IF your area HAS "a feral hog problem" (and I have difficulty believing that you DO NOT or WILL NOT soon have a HUGE problem), I cannot imagine WHY your game & fish department would not allow these invaders/destructive pests to be shot on sight.
    (Here in TX, for quite a long time the TP&WD tried to ignore the ever-growing problem but finally decided that these invasive pests HAD to be removed from our environment wherever encountered. - Now the problem is Statewide & constantly growing worse, despite uncontrolled hunting & use of poisons.)

    yours, tex
