now that bullets for the 460 S&W are available, i would think they would make excellent 450 bushmaster projectiles, the velocities are about the same.

An M19 automatic grenade launcher would be WAY more fun!

Still the best thread

Mr. Flintknapper

I never did make the trip down south this fall/winter as hoped. It will still happen, just not this year. It did allow me the opportunity to mount a quad rail on my DMPS .308.

I wanted to mention again that this is still the best thread I have read. It is very imformative, entertaining, and just plain awesome!

Do you have a "day job" as well? Or where do you find the time to make bows and arrows, reload powder actuated projectiles, and deliver an education to the folks on THR as well?

Flintknapper, thanks so much for your posting here on the subject of Wild Hogs. In Alabama or at least in my area we never had this much of a problem. Well I thought we didn't, last few weeks I started noticing tracks that looked like one or two deer roaming close to the house. But after closer examining it looks more like Piggies are here. I walked to the back of my property and more and more tracks everywhere, health as it is I didn't venture out into the wooded area to see if and what is going on there. My son had buried a dog several months ago and something had dug it up and scattered the bones all over. Don't know if a hog would do that or not so thought I'd ask someone with more experience. Going out tomorrow for a Game Camera to see what turns up

Walker - that's hogs alright.

I hunt hogs all the time around Butler, AL and the hogs are as thick as ticks round there.

Hi Walker,

Yes...hogs will root up carcasses....but coyotes will also dig things up.

Based only on that information...I am not ready to say you have hogs.

However, a "game-cam" and perhaps putting out a bit of corn....would be an excellent idea. So you are on the right track (no pun intended).

Coyotes have been in area before but luckily they are moving out. I did think that it could have been Coyotes at first until all the tracks around premiter , and the depth of prints. For a long time we had a heard of white tails that would litterly come to the back door and eat the flowers from garden. One really nice buck but he never came into the open area. I should have picked up that something was outside sooner, but when you get old you start overlooking and forgetting things to look for. Anyway tonight will have a game camera in place just to see what we can see. thanks

What part of Alabama Walkers210? Game management in your area ought to know about a pig problem.

Hogs leave tracks, and so do Coyotes Not easily confused

Baiting the location is a good idea...

DammitBoy I am in WALKER county, tried to talk with the Wildlife management dept this morning. Don't know who pissed in there cheerios but they were of no help what so ever. Woman just plainly said, legal to kill them on "YOUR PROPERTY" during daylight hours only and trapping them is illegal. Basically I can kill them or ignore them.

Flintknapper,

Thank you so much for your informative and graphic depiction of your hog problem. I sat down here for the last 2 hours and read the 27 pages of it. I can certainly get a sense of the destructiveness of these feral hogs and the tenacity of the species to reproduce.

I applaud your efforts and humanity of not turning this into a pig fest. I learned alot from you and your methods.

Keep up the good work.

Jeff

Would an 7.62x39mm Saiga work for that kind of work? I've got a bunch of ammo and no job over the summer lined up... and need a reason to justify my firearms purchases...so... if anyone needs someone to come in over the summer to help clear it out, I'd be interested. Pay would be even better, if there are those opportunities out there.

Admittedly, I've never done it before, but hey, it's worth a shot... literally.

It seems like poisons would be pretty effective to eliminate hogs if the delivery system was designed to weed out the smaller critters.

Poisons aren't as... targetable. The hogs will eat it, and so will the deer and turkeys and everything else. That's the big problem.

I started reading this string, but did not finish it...if it's already been posted, forgive me... when you set the trap, build a small pen on the back side of it, and keep a couple live hogs fed and watered inside the pen as part of the trap set-up... results will increase capture rate.
if duplicate, forgive the repost... it's important

The "Judas sow" technique was mentioned early in the thread

Hard to believe this thread has been going for almost two years. Don't think I've posted in this thread before, but I've really enjoyed following it. Keep up the good work, Flintknapper.

Yes, administration/mods have been gracious to make it a sticky and to leave it up this long. I hope it will continue, only because the information here might help someone else with what is a growing problem in many states (Feral Hogs).

I have pointed quite a few people to this thread and I see (currently) it has about 125,000 "hits", so someone is at least looking at it.

I haven't had much time this year to mount an assault on the hogs...but I promise...I will get back after them as soon as I can.

I will try to find time to add some more information here soon. I realize some folks read this thread only for the stories and there is nothing wrong with that. I like to read the stories of others and live vicariously through them, its fun, but that is not the real purpose of this thread.

Sharing ideas, techniques, successes and failures...all help to make us better hunters.

"Better Hunters"= More dead pigs. (a good thing IMO).

Well, I just recently found this post and spent the last few days chipping at it when time allowed...

Flint, you are a model American.

Your bow and arrow work are priceless.

A hunter of the highest degree.

Gifted writer.

Great teacher.

That being said, I dig your SOCOM, your attitude, and your style!

ROCK ON!


PS- IH8HOGS!!! <----

This just in.....

inside information from shipmates on Vinson, (posted here as a new use for those feral, infernal porcine pests) after OBL was waxed by ST6, he was prepped for burial and placed inside a body bag. After dumping garbage astern for 30 minutes, OBL's bag was weighted with 16 frozen hams and the slide board was greased with bacon. When the bastard hit the waves, sharks were seen choosing the hams.

^^^^^^^^^^

Yes, this really isn't the proper thread for OBL discussion.

Thanks for leaving the thread intact as well, I continue to direct folks here in hopes they might glean something from the information provided.

Much appreciated!

Flint.

Simply amazing!No hogs on our place. Plenty of goats ruining our feeders. We put up fence around our feeders recently the cameras tell us it has been successful in keep them out but still allowing the deer to get to the corn.
