An estimated 2 million wild hogs are causing $52 million a year in crop damage in Texas, according to agricultural experts. Pigs that they are, they eat just about anything including the carcasses of their own brethren and tramples crops.
The pasture-wrecking porkers are causing trouble well beyond farms. Authorities in Texas are reporting an increase in collisions between hogs and cars, while golf courses and suburbs are increasing finding turf uprooted by hogs.
With that said, here in Mississippi we need to eradicate these hogs that are at the famous Christmas Place Plantation and Hunting Club right now. This weekend Bob and I have been invited by Rex to come up and help shoot these porky critters. Hopefully, we will make a good shot as Phillip did on his weekend hog hunt at the Tejon Ranch in California. Do we need to hire a chopper? What do you think?
