  1. How do we get the job as the shooter? I would pay $ for that gig.

    A big atta boy to everyone involved in getting this rolling. Aerial gunning and trapping have put a major dent in the population in far Western KY.

    Read the latest KY Afield to get the actual counts killed...mind boggling.

    All they need to do is advertise that they need shooters and will furnish the ammo and pay in beer.....those hogs wouldn't last a week.

    Aren't these things about like yotes once they get started,..as in about impossible to eliminate? I don't know much about hogs,..only see what a nuisance they are in other states that has had them for years.

    Worse than yotes. Multiply very fast.

  8. Just need to release a few more cougars into the habitat to keep the hogs in check. :p:p:p

    We need to get the "Mountain Monster" show fellows to capture some of their "Bigfeet" turn them loose with some BBQ sauce.

    Ranch I deer hunted in TX used to charge to hog hunt. When we got there first year he said "shoot every one ya can, let em lay if you don't want em. They gotta go!" We had fun! Brought home some good backstraps and hams.

    I don't believe the story! Unless it in Tennessee, I've hunted LBL a bunch with lots of other hunters for yrs and have never seen any signs of Hogg's.
    Every zone and only one guy said he saw something that could of been a Hogg but wasn't sure, it was dark .

    I hiked the north south trail in jan. 2016. Got pretty chilly. Ran into 4 adults easily go 250 lbs each and about 30 juveniles in area 15. Passed about 20 yards away. Saw sign clear up to the Kentucky line.

    I was there this week and saw fields rooted up in wildcat hollow and wallows just south of Morgan cemetary. There was more indication of hogs now than in 2016.

    Whatever LBL is doing it ain't working. Allowing the taking of hogs can't make them any more nocturnal than during any other hunting season when the shooting starts.

    We have a growing population of Cougars ("panthers") here in South Florida. Deer and wild hogs are getting scarce, livestock and pet animal losses in Southwest Florida are rising by dozens, and we have had two Florida panthers lately trying to eat turkey hunters.
    [Be careful what you wish for. Panthers, cougars, mountain lions, etc. are serious business.
