Does this only happen in Texas?
Hog trolling? Yeah, right. It’s all in fun when you’re driving the boat down the river and a big tusker goes swimming by.
What’s not fun is the massive problem of feral hogs in Texas and across the southern United States. Population estimates are around six million of these highly destructive animals that wreak havoc in the U. S. and Canada. Some figures show half of these invasive hogs are in the state of Texas alone.
Since Texas allows hunters to kill wild hogs year-round and without limits, then hog trolling for them might just be the wave of the future. Until then, we’ll stick to our favorite firearm.
