    We had our place hunted by USDA helicopter last week. Due to the weather they only killed sixteen on our land and 648 in the entire county. They saw many more but just weren't able to hunt very long. That is a bust. The last time we had them out they killed 146 on our ranch in one morning, not that it really mattered much.

    My neighbor to the north has a 500 acre field which is normally covered up in pigs. He called me last week and asked if I could kill every pig I see on him. Well yes, yes I can.

    Drive west of Dallas. Turn right in Abilene. If you hit Oklahoma or the Llano Estacado you missed your turn. :D

    id love to cull some pigs, make up for the ones we can't shot here because it's illegal.

    16? Don't worry you will have them back 10 fold by next year. Abilene about 150 miles too far west according to verbage. Feel sure though that if about 2 bills a day were envolved it would be an endeavor. Of course suckers are born eberyday.

    I've been killing pigs out in that area for 40 years which is why I had the USDA come hunt. The pig problem is completely out of control. The government helicopter guys are very good at what they do. Unfortunately, springtime weather in Texas can be rather violent and this curtailed their hunt. I'm fully aware of our pig population problem which is why I said a hunt with only sixteen dead was a bust.

    Interesting, I’ve killed multiple hundreds of hogs that far and further west in Texas .
