Wow! I’m originally from Louisiana. Due to my wife being military. I’m in Kentucky. I love it here. The hunting is great. I have lease land and I’ve purchased some land. But here recently some buddies hit me up about wanting to hunt Ky also. So I put the word out. A guy contacts me. He is happy that there is a chance that he is seeing some hogs on his land. Soon as he said that….you can count me out. You can’t be serious. I must say. Talk to those Texas boys. Worse thing that can happen to any farm
My parents place we would see one and two on trail camera several years ago. No one hunted them. Now…… Say good by to food plots. Be prepared to spend money on killing them to protect your crops. By all means. Drive to Texas and hunt them. Don’t bring them up here. Kill on site.
You are correct, my friend and give sound advice.
Lot of folks all “ga ga” over hog hunting dont have to put up with em.
Best scenerio that we have is that in the past 6 years they have only messed up one food plot (as far as rooting around). However, if you have ever witnessed em camp out under an oak tree and suck up EVERY acorn like a Hoover Vaccum in a matter of minutes, then you have to realize why your “good” acorn flatts arent producing the deer they once did.
I posted this pic last week. See for your self. Note: this is NOT one of the plotts that we have that see a lot of hog traffic.
A good friend owns land in S, Georgia and his Father owns the farm next to his. Wild hogs populations have exploded there. Hunting them hard year round barely puts a dent in the population. They destroy food plots, crops and gardens. They also eat fawns and any young farm livestock they can take down.
Hogs are number one on the hit list. The damage they do in Ga. is probaly in the millions. I feel sorry for the farmers that have to deal with them. I airmail them a broadhead every chance I get.
