Since this has turned into an all purpose hog thread, I do have a question. My family and I have recently hunted our 900 acres in central Texas extremely hard, and for the past week we haven't seen any hogs. It may be that they've got some very elusive hiding places but I doubt it because we know the land well. Obviously central Texas has tonnes of hogs, so does anyone know if it's even possible to run them off for any amount of time? They are after all like the 2nd smartest mammal in North America or something, so maybe they did catch on.
edit: Reason I ask is that though I know they're destructive, I enjoy me a good hog hunt, so I'm half ashamed to actually kill them off our land.
