Since it is NOT your land, try calling your county animal control.

Have you seen these pigs? How big are they? for a big boar you might need a bear trap. Also, many states/areas require a permit for trapping or ban it outright (but I'm not from Texas). Make sure you know what your jepordy is legally and physically, before you take any action you can't take back. I'd have some heavy conversations with hogdogs and with local animal control people to make sure you know what and why you end up doing whatever you do.

The last time I was in Dallas I saw several pigs. Wicked looking critters.



Although I did buy one of ‘em a drink.

Texas state law (local laws may differ) allows the taking of feral hogs by just about any means you can think of... Heck, if claymore mines were legal, you could use them I bet. NVG's and scopes as well as silencers and possibly FA's even... Trapping is legal by state regs without a permit... the only caveat is it may be required to be open top to allow deer, turkey and bobcats to escape unhindered.

I would suggest a gamo extreme hunter,airhog,daewoo ,airforce or a rsw with some practice you should have no problems taking a hog 200lbs or larger with head shots at 30 yards or a little more they come from .17cal all the way to .50cal on youtube you can see them take game as large as bison good luck

they are getting bad here, I have a customer near the landfill at I-30 and macarthur, says the pigs wait for the landfill workers to head out at five and the pigs move in and dig up what they've just covered and eat all night. this in the dead center of dfw.

Something about this line made me literally laugh out loud.

As far the the topic in concerned that's crazy. Must be a helpless feeling not being able to really do anything to those hogs.

At least hogs don't reproduce at a rapid rate

Your not in Cedar Hill are you?

You can drive down hwy 67 at prime time and see sounders of hogs right on the road.

Crossbow would do the trick in city limits.

Seeing this is in a manner in which to hunt down hogs, I'm moving this over to The Hunt...

Having lived in DFW area, used to hear single gunshots fairly frequently. I wouldn't worry about singles so much...

Plus, preventing the discharge a firearm in defense of life and property is definitely not the intention of the city ordinance... It's meant to keep people from target shooting on their 1/5th acre plot of land with five foot side setbacks...

If you feel you must, use a shotgun with buck in it...

Whereabouts in DFW? I lived in South Garland for five years

Dang, by looking at the video clips that Brent "hogdogs" put up. Sheesh I didn't ever think they were that "up front with other predators"

I think you can shoot a pellet gun within city limits. The Gamo whisper has always been appealing to me.

I used to test reloads in my back yard at night. Neighbors thought it was a car back firing. If they're in your back yard, shoot them from inside the house and the report won't be nearly as bad. If you reload, you can also work up some sub-sonic (~1000fps) loads.

Just be careful with a pellet gun. You might kill one, but the other 14 may be displeased. I'd go out with a crossbow, shoot 1, then pick up the .308 and go.

Funny videos HogDogs.

I bet that Leopard felt like he was running in quick sand at the end there.

Funny how he realized just before the first hit how bad an idea the whole pig hunting thing probably was.

Ever heard of a pig sticker?

Cold steel even makes a spear just for pig hunting if you don't want to get that close.

Have learned that most folks never hear a single rifle or pistol shot in the wee hours of the morning. Folks normally up @ this hour think nothing of it. All safety rules apply, be sure of your target and beyond! Pellet guns just as illegal in many cities as cartridge guns. That being said, taking on a large sounder of hogs with an M14 and a full magazine in a residential area is probably a very bad idea. Traps and experienced hunters with archery equipment or shotguns may work, hard to say.

Tx, We knew as po' folk needing protein in our diet that the first shot awakes folks but they have no clue what woke them.... the finisher shot is what tips them off that a sugar beet eating deer is headed to a freezer somewhere.
