Yeah, he had his trail camera

Yeah, he had his trail camera on the corn pile. He had several hundred pics of these hogs in a 7 day period. There were anywhere from 4 to 9 hogs in the pics at a time until the ear corn was devoured. Once the ear corn was gone around the seventh day, only a single hog would return each evening to eat the corn being slung by the feeder.  During the seven day time period, he only had 2 pics of deer. Once the majority of the hogs quit returning, the deer started to return to the feeder.

I have traveled around to different places to hunt them but will probably start this year hunting them around here more often. My buddy and I are going to hunt those hogs after deer season goes out. He doesn't want to target them during deer season but plans on hitting them hard after the season. 

I heard some hogs Tuesday evening around dark but didn't see any. They are being to move into our area, so yeah, I'll being hunting them more often. I told the other members of the club that I will be taking extra rounds to the woods this year and if they hear me shoot multiple times, then I'm shooting hogs. I told them to bring the 4 wheelers and game carts because I'm stacking them up. LOL

The problem out here though,

The problem out here though, and in alot of other parts, is that the landowners complain about how much crop damage these guys do, but when hunters look for a spot to go shoot them, these landowners come out and say "Sure, that'yll be $500".  Now, I have absolutely no problem with making $$$$ of your own land, heck, it's the american way.  But, if you want to make $$$$, then don't complain about it.  If you are truly worried about your crop, and there is a solution right in front of your face, then you should take advantage of that, IMO.

Ah...$500 is cheap compared

Ah...$500 is cheap compared to other rates I've been qouted. There are a lot of farmers trying to make a lot of money off of this. And they should I guess if someone is willing to pay the fee. They have to recoup money for damages but most farmers have insurance for that. I just don't know if the insurance covers damage from hogs. It should because they can get money for damage caused by deer.

hmmmm

I've heard that about down there, you would think if the hogs are eating the farmer crops and pretty much eating there money the farmers would let the hunters on there land for free to get rid of the hogs. it doesnt make sence to me that they loose money to the hogs eating crops and charge the hunter. what if hunter dont wanna pay the fee than the farmers out the crops and the money from the hunters, I've heard in Texas land owner will almost pay you to come shoot a couple hog. If they're complain of the hog problem they should allow a hunter to shoot them for nothing.

Colorado Pig

I came across a guy running a booth at a sportsmans expo one years about 3 years back.  He was selling boar hunts in Colorado.  He said he pens them and the hunts are conducted inside a fenced area.  I asked him what would happen if one or two were to escape, which they are sure to do.  He didn't seem too concerned about it.  He probably wasn't a resident here and was just leasing the land, so he really didn't give two sh!ts about it.  When his pigs start ripping apart his neighbors farm crops they'll sure give a sh!t and hate his guts.  I hear they are starting to become a problem in Oregon where the populations were relatively small a few years back.  We end up with boar infestation here in the farming communities and the farmers are going to have to own packs of Pitbull Terriers or Southern White Bulldogs to help control those pests.
