    Welcome back Lisa. From what I have seen on here trapping and hunting the pigs seems to help some, but other than that I dont know.

    Build a large pin type trap to catch as many as you can.

    they get smart on the traps after awhile....thats why we dont have them on the state land i work on...
    hunting them is the only way, hunting and trapping combined should work pretty good i would think.

    i would start hunting them, you could get some serious meat if you start busting a few of them.. good luck on whatever you decide they can sure mess up some land

    hey WWH--great to hear from ya!

    I had a horrible hog problem on my 80 acres. The damage they caused was incredible. I spent a good 3 years and have eradicated the hogs in my area. Over the 3 year period I either shot (bow and gun) and trapped over 50 hogs. The trap was the only way I got the job done. I haven't seen a hog now for over 2 years. I'd set out several traps--it's not uncommon to trap several at a time. Have fun and fill the freezer with some good pork.

    If you hunt them, hunt them REAL heavy. Pressure them real hard, if you don't you won't phase them a bit. The heavy hunting pressure should drive the one's you don't kill/trap away. If you were in Texas I'd help ya out, huntin hogs is my favorite type of huntin, next to deer of course!!
