A few years back, the Noble foundation, did a survey along with several state departments. They estimated in the state of Oklahoma, there were around 500,000 hogs with a presence in all 77 counties.
In Texas they estimated a population of 2.6 million hogs that do around 550 million dollars A YEAR in crop damage.
I feel like I am an ethical hunter, but living in Southeastern Oklahoma, and close to the northern Texas border, I can tell you this is not hunting, it is WAR.
I makes no difference to me how this vermin is taken out, as long as it works.
If there is the benefit of someone gaining some groceries, then so be it, but I doubt that anyone here is going to feel to bad about how they are eradicated.
