If there is one thing we all love, it's spending time with family and friends in the woods, especially by doing a wild boar and deer drive.
There is nothing like a good ol' day in the woods with the gang, rounding up some hogs and deer for some wildlife management practices.
It tests your skills to shoot ethical shots on the run, can help reduce the feral hog herd and manage deer herds. Bottom line, we enjoy hunting, and this is just one tactic that when it comes together, it can be an exciting hunt.
Below is a video of the 2016 boar and deer drive compilation, put together by Potterek81 Hunting. I'm not sure exactly where this hog hunting video comes from, but it's almost certainly not the United States. I'll bet it hits close to home for folks in Texas, where seeing an invasive species during whitetail deer season isn't a far fetched idea.
A sportsman could get used to that!
If you can watch this video without already missing hunting season or becoming eager to get back out there, then we probably could never be friends.
I'm already a step ahead of you. The brush gun is ready, the truck is started, let's hit the road. Deer hunting and wild boar hunting, together in one day?! That's my kinda trip!
Now seriously, we all know wild pigs are a nuisance and can damage some great property. I'm sure PETA would love to get ahold of this video and tell us all why we are horrible individuals for enjoying this adrenaline rush, but quite frankly, who cares?
If we don't care of the feral swine problem who will? There are no bag limits, you can hunt them over food plots or through baiting, and it's as great of a hunting experience as you'd expect.
Doing a driven hunt can put meat on the table and rounding up some feral pigs can help save property and do your part in conservation.
