Spartapuss: Birnone: They have no natural predators. It's time to bring grizzlies back to California. We should release a few thousand grizzlies randomly throughout the state and that should fix things.

I see a potential problem with this.


Don't worry, we have gorillas ready to take out the bears after they deal with our hog problem.

Sounds fine, until the grizzlies figure out that homeless encampments offer easier prey...


Oh, God, they'll eat some homeless methhead and then you will have methed-up bears. Do we really want methhead grizzlies?

beezeltown: Hog traps. Lots of hog traps.
[agrilifetoday.tamu.edu image 850x637]
I hunt and have no problem with shooting & eating overly populated animals, but hunting doesn't work as well to control hogs as large scale trapping.


Be very careful on FarKKK suggesting that there is any intelligent way to control unwanted animals other than shooting at them.
You will be called a gun-grabber or tree-hugger or both.
When a Real American wants to shoot something, one is not wise to stand in his way.
Some of these yahoos would LOVE to see pickup trucks full of their drunken buddies careening around our suburbs, blazing away at anything they think is a pig in their addled state.
They think allowing that is good government.

January 1, 2022 California law requires pigs to have room to turn around in their stall. Bacon prices soar.

January 21, 2022 Californian proposes law that requires pigs with room to turn around to be culled.

I think the biggest impediment to dealing with hogs in California is going to be that there is generally not a positive perception of hunting with rifles here. People seeing discount Elmer Fudd wandering around town with his camo and AR-15 are going to be pretty upset especially in the current tense climate surrounding the 3% crowd and 2nd Amendment "activism".

Uhh... The trap is so the rest don't run away after you shoot the 1st one...

Did you think they were all taken to a nice farm upstate where they could run and play?


This. You shoot one, thirty run away. With a trap, 31 enter, zero get away.

Don't worry, you can satisfy gun aggression out by snuffing every animal in the trap. I don't agree with bloodlust animal shooting, but if you're going to exercise a psychotic desire to kill all things, then let it occur while wiping out a herd of wild hogs. Then check yourself into a psych ward and get help.

"...the ability to manage the population through science-based management practices..."

I guess anyone who opposes giving people the legal right to open fire on the wild hogs anywhere in California, including residential areas, is going to be labeled "anti-science".  

What a "science-based management" tool looks like...

I would disagree with your "blood lust" label but I have seen that. I would trap them, shoot them with a rifle, have them processed into breakfast sausage then donate that to the local children's home. For me it was a pest control/community service activity. No blood lust involved. Once I invited an ex-deputy sheriff to check a trap with me. He brought a 12 gauge shotgun. I shot two sows and he started in on the piglets. After his first shot he shouted, "Stop resisting!" He kept firing and shouting until nothing moved. Some of his misses hit the sows I had already killed, ruining some of that meat. I never invited him again.

That looks similar to the ones I use. For bait, I use corn soaked in beer trub. I fill a 5 gallon bucket with corn then top it off with the stuff from the bottom of the fermentation tanks at a local brewery. Let that soak for a few days and the pigs will fight each other to get into the trap. I have added cut up apples and wild pears, but the beer soaked corn has been very reliable. The smell will travel a long way.

You do realize you are describing baiting hogs with mash used for making sweet sweet corn liquor right? How dare you.


I'm from Kentucky so I know a little bit about corn liquor. There's no reason a pig's last meal can't be enjoyable. Most of them will be laying down when I approach the trap.
