Excellent suggestion.

As a landowner, I fully understand the liability issues of allowing hunters to use my land. Offsetting this is the amount of damage done by the hogs.
Just my opinion that the "ranchers" have exacerbated their hog damage by expecting hunters TO PAY FOR THE PRIVILEGE of helping those ranchers deplete the hog population. Early on in this problem, the landowners were greedy and let the hog population explode and now, it's a bigger problem with very expensive solutions.
Simply put, I don't have a lot of sympathy for those who tried to profit from something that's now eating up their profits. I DO empathize with their neighbors who also have to face a problem they didn't create.

He can call the USDA and they will conduct an aerial hunt. It really helps to have the neighbors on board though.

My opinion is states like TX will always have a feral pig problem as long as it is a money maker. Take the money out of pig hunting and you'll see the hog problem dealt with.
Same here in Florida whose pig problem is almost as bad as Texas' problem. Yet some guys will trap and then release them in a high-fence area so folks will pay them. Except those pigs don't always oblige by staying in that area......

This one is kinda old but there are semi-professional hog hunter in Texas. Then there's always the Hog Doggers. I'm not a hog dogger or a semi-profeeional hog hunter. I do hunt pigs for more than half dozen ranchers. No money exchanges hands between us. We get to enjoy pig hunting and occasionally the rancher/landowner/ranch manager might let us take a doe or two during deer season. I guess I'm pretty lucky. We get new properties everyone once in awhile by word of mouth from the ranchers we hunt for.
