I used ride ATVs with a group of fellas from St.charles. I asked them about hogs back in August when I got the Gun Bug and was thinking of buying either an AR or an AK (a buddy suggested to me he would go with the AR as he did as he planned on hunting hogs in Arky and TEXAS with it). So I asked My Hillybilly friends down in St. Charles and they said they are few and far between. Locals released a bunch trying to capitalize on the new Hog rage sweeping the nation. Local farmers have kept them in check. There are some wineries around there that do their fair share of killing them and trying to find out who is releasing them to prosecute them.
