Field Editor Brian McCombie wanted to see just what it was like to bag a few hogs from the air, Texas style. Get an inside look at this hunt with the story and video provided here.
After deer, hogs are Florida’s next most popular big-game quarry, and compared to most other hog states, the wild porkers are a close second.
Sid Miller, Texas Department of Agriculture (DOA) commissioner, proposed a change to the Texas Administrative Code in an attempt to control the 5 million feral hogs in the state. The destructive hogs are estimated to cause upwards of $52 million in damages a year in Texas alone, and Miller suggested using poison, specifically Kaput Feral Hog Lure, a bait mixed with the blood thinner warfarin that is normally reserved for humans but happens to be lethal to pigs.
