    About twice a year is what they normally raise litters
     
  2. Yeah, a 223 to the brain pan is very educational to wild hogs, lol. The reason Elk first disappeared from KY was unregulated hunting. I would propose unregulated hunting of wild pigs in KY with a $20 tax credit bounty on each one killed. No limit, no rules. Use any means and any method. Traps, guns, explosives, poison. ANY means and methods. Some may work better, and some may be educational. Heavy hunting pressure might make them go nocturnal, so we then hunt them at night. State should rent out thermal night sights just like library books. $10/week.

    I'd be all for this, except for the poison, I want to keep the deer.

    LBL now has a lot of information on their website about wild hogs. Having hunted wild hogs since 1990 in western states I don't agree with all of their information but it is helpful.
    By the way there is a poison that was successfully tried on wild hogs and is perfectly safe for all other wildlife. It was legalized in Texas a few years ago but then the bleeding hearts, or the greedy game guides got it outlawed again.

    I can assure you they will fine you! They think there going to trap them out, but its not going to happen. I was born and raised there until we was FORCED out in the 60's. Way to many hills and hollers and not near enough man power to get it done. I am about 6 or 7 miles the way the crows fly from LBL only thing separating my county from LBL is the Tennessee river. It just a matter of time before there on this side. Used to have a duck blind on the river seen a lot of deer swim from LBL to this side especially when the water was at winter pool.

    Id love to hear your stories about living in LBL. I always think of the people that were forced from their land everytime i find a cemetary, or old house site. Im not disagreeing with you. I think they should encourage everyone with a bb gun up to hunt them. They seem to think otherwise. Someone told me they trapped and killed 250 hogs. I have never seen one, or noticed sign. Its just hard to believe.

    Seen these hogs today in LBL. In a field beside 68. All together there were probably 6 to 8 adults and 30 to 40 piglets. Image is with my phone so sorry for image quality. 20220113_180122.jpg
