    Has anyone gone for feral hogs?
    Where did you go?
    Was it a big pack of hogs non stop that you killed off because they are destroying the local farms? Or was it a point and click over a feeder?
    I would like to try to get some buddies together for a feral hog trip but I would prefer to take out a bunch of hogs on some private farm instead of shooting a big pig over a grain feeder and calling it a day.
    Seems like having some fun hunting and helping to get rid of the problem for farms at the same time would be great.
    Any suggestions?

    Havent gone, but its in the works. A friend of mine went to South Carolina and his mid 30ish year old son got to kill one with a knife, but Im not sure as to the overall details. The meat I got was great though. I believe there was a place in Maine that had guided hunts on private property, but that ended recently. It seems that down south has the guided hunts, but up this way youd have to find a farm like you mentioned.

    Either way, Im hoping some good ideas come from this thread.

    Don't need a permit in Florida, just landowner's permission

    They have a great reputation. I spoke to someone who used them in '16 and they said it was an amazing time. Good guys, good lodging, excellent grub. Good luck.

    I did my weekly search of overly used thread titles that annoy a randomly picked member of NES. This was your lucky week.

    Let me check my GPS

    Texas is open season 24/7/365, NO limit. Look in West Texas. Some farmers in the Dell City area will pay a bounty for each pig. There are a TON of people that will put you on hogs (not that difficult). Bring lots of ammo and a reliable rifle. You'll get a workout.

    With all the talk. You would think TX was being afflicted with a plague of hogs. From what I have read on the internet. Even people who live in TX have to pay landowners to shoot hogs on their land. Or they are asking online where to find a good hog hunting outfitter. Make me wonder how serious the feral pig problem really is down there?

    Supply and demand. There is no shortage of people willing to pay to shoot them so why not charge?

    I remember reading an article about how farmers were devastated in the first year or so of the hogs overrunning their farms. Then they realized that they could make a bunch of money with almost no work (in comparison to farming) by charging people to hunt there.
