I know we're all concerned about bacon supplies, but is this going to cut down the feral hog problem?

Nah, it throws stuff at them, it gets all the credit but it's the stuff it throws that does the work.

It would be a very crappy situation if this virus mutated to cross over to the human population.
You would then be in danger of getting a 100% mortality by defecation.

FTA -- "PEDv causes diarrhea, vomiting and severe dehydration."

Making time spent on the hog farm to be even more of an olfactory delight than usual.

Just thinking out loud, but I kind of wonder if North Korea or China is behind a lot of these recent (long term) epidemics. I was just reading about the Citrus greening bacteria that's wiping out citrus crops. We've got viruses and insects attacking tree's and fish, fungus that will kill you, and viruses killing off the food supply. If I wanted to attack a country, subtly and quietly, and didn't want an all out war, this is how I'd do it. I'd go after supplies of food and raw materials.

Probably not, feral hogs seem to be resistant to just about everything.  Not to mention they probably serve as reservoirs for half of the diseases relevant to the swine industry.

FTA: The virus has fueled market concerns that U.S. hog supplies will decline steeply next spring and summer.

Actually, the fact that China bought one of the largest suppliers of pork in our country should be fueling those concerns. What if hogs are like Dutch Elms and they'll be gone at some point?

That's a lot more likely to make the peasants revolt than fear-mongering about Obama.

Cute. I prefer this (well not 'zactly this one, but one like it):

encrypted-tbn0.gstatic.com

.308 ( 7.62x51 NATO) lays the hogs down for good. I have had mine for 6 years and have never once considered selling it. Mine isn't a fussy eater, drives tacks at 200 yards, and it has a way of making the firing line at the range shut down when it starts barking :)
They are piston operated so they don't crap themselves every time you pull the trigger, and with one simple lever they break open for field stripping. They have an adjustable gas port so you can tune them to a variety of ammo, and mine still has the integrated bipod so I can stabilize it for those long shots.
If you know what you are looking for a FN-FAL is a sound purchase and will quickly become a favorite in your collection.

Eh, I find 6.8mm SPC works well, as does .450 Bushmaster and .458 Socom.

I'd LIKE to build an AR in .243 WSSM, but that's a long ways off. Right now, I'm working on saving up for a FAL variant.

My old man prefers 6.5 Grendel in an AR platform. But since I got the FAL I haven't looked back.
