I have seen less in Central Texas this year which is said to be because of the drought creating smaaler sounders. Biologist also said that coyotes have been affected too because their normal prey like deer and small animals have suffered losses. On these moonlit nights the coyotes are still pretty vocal so I wonder if the biologist was wrong.

Just about the time I get all damage repaired the bastages come back and hit again. I've counted as many as 50 on my place.

I am pretty lucky that on my west fence there is a 6,000 ac. lease and probably 20% of the members have hog dogs and they keep the numbers down and the hogs moved out. I see a little sign now and then but haven't seen a pig on this place for over 10 years.


Advice? Wise men don't need it. Fools won't heed it.

Poisons aren’t selective in what they kill. That’s the problem. Some other animal will get into it and die, so you can’t control, say, a protected or endangered species from eating it. Then, birds will eat the carcass and die from the poison. Poison has too many possible negative side effects to be used.

Here's the way they handled these things back in the 1930's. The snowflakes would never allow such a thing today:

How do you expect pigs to volunteer to get the vaccine? Those SOBs don’t cooperate real well on my lease. I shoot them in the face for eating corn, and 10 more show up.
