The reason why we shoot feral hogs and take no prisoners is because they breed like rats and this proves it.
Make no mistake: invasive hogs are a problem. Sound redundant? Ask anybody in Texas if they’d rather: go hog hunting or go fishing, blast pigs or take the wife out to dinner? Maybe tomorrow night sweetie.
According to the Smithsonian, “Sows begin breeding at 6 to 8 months of age and have two litters of four to eight piglets—a dozen is not unheard of—every 12 to 15 months during a life span of 4 to 8 years. Even porcine populations reduced by 70 percent return to full strength within two or three years”
Time to load up.
Wild hogs carry infections, parasites, and diseases such as swine brucellosis and pseudorabies that can be easily transmitted to domestic pigs.
All you can do with this one is wish you were there with a full-auto and extra ammo, and don’t forget to invite the folks in Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Alabama, Mississippi, and Oklahoma all the way to Arizona and that’s just in the southern U.S.
Feral hogs can be found as well out west, back east, and in some northern states all the way up into Canada. Time to make some bacon.
