Hog Hunting

You already know I live in Texas. Texas is the national leader in lots of things, but one thing we aren’t happy about is the fact this is the leader in feral hogs. Unfortunately, there are millions of feral hogs in this state.

You must understand, feral hogs cause millions annually in damage to agriculture and property. Feral hogs are literally like roaches. They breed quickly, then they destroy the property. Ranchers do not like them. After all, would you like a bunch of feral hogs on your property, digging it up, eating your crops and shitting all over the place? Feral hogs breed with domesticated animals, leading to a wide variety of characteristics in the hogs themselves.

Hogs are strong, crafty and fast. They have an idea people don’t want them. They do not want to die. Despite the dozens of videos out there on hog hunting, its not an easy task. And yes, this particular task is why AR-15’s aren’t going away any time soon. That particular rifle is well suited to the task of feral hog eradication.

So take a look at the hog hunting video we’re posting. It’s not sport killing; it’s eradication. Unlike in this video, not all of these hogs are good eating. A hog hunter I know is also a soldier in the US Army. He has a method to prepare feral hogs for eating to remove their gaminess. In the instance we are posting, the main hunter is eating all of the feral hogs they’ve killed. They did so humanely.

About bittersportspills

I love sports. I don't love the hype, homerism, ratings talk, self-important egomaniacs, bias or any of the other nonsense you get with the national media. Nor will you get the two clowns on sports talk radio who stage phony arguments. It doesn't make it entertaining. It makes it time to turn on your iPod and jam instead of listening to white noise generators. This is the sports blog for you, the ones who don't like everything Los Angeles or New York. Just because the sporting media is based there doesn't mean we have to like their teams. We do treat them fairly, though. That means if one of those cities has an average QB who plays particularly well...we'll note it. If they're garbage, we'll say so. Instead of crying "why, why, why" like a certain sports media homer did in his radio broadcast. This isn't my job...I have a real one. Nevertheless, I'll post here when I make an observation. Common sense in sports is nearly dead. Now we're attempting to bring it back.
