With the advances in technology maybe they need to create a pig seeking hog killing drone that can fly through the woods and shoot them. With heat seeking sensors there would be no where for them to hide. Just a cool sci-fi fantasy of a toy I'd love to operate!

Also a sick animal often goes to water to die. How will it affect the fish and snapping turtles that them. Of the crawfish which will then get eaten by the bass. I see many untapped about consequences to after the fact of the hog dying. How does it affect the vultures? Because lead bullets have hurt the condor america's largest flying birdreproduction out west.

I've seen several hog carcasses completely torn up by the alligator snappers in one night. Also the aligators eat that too.

Many of the places I hunt I see 10 deer to every hog and the hog population never seems to increase after many years and the pigs are rare just from ppl hunting and trapping. I do believe hard hunting, dog hunting and trapping could be effective in some areas and a March season after bucks drop horns and b4 turkey season is what a warden wanted that I talked to.
Bogue Chitto NWR has that. And i assure u there is a big crew out of Walkii Bluff, Ms that doesn't miss a day.

All for eradication. I just don't think poison is the way to go about it.

This is the point ,, along with what Orion says.... It has been known that gov and its ways,,, have not succeeded in everything it seeks out to do... Although,, the intentions may be right,, it don't end up with the right results... Poisoning of any eatable animal is not the way to go,,, especially on lands that the taxpayer pays to hunt yearly... I agree totally that hogs are detrimental to the environment if left unmanaged,, but with that said there are several ways that they can be controlled. Me and my son within the last week have trapped 21 head out of 4400 acres.. that's two people. These wma's and nwr's and forestry can be managed if the right steps are taken. Poisoning is like waving a magic wand,,,, it aint no such thing as magic.....

21 head on 4400 acres?!?! And you think that's controlling the population?

Hogs wise up to traps after a while. You have to hit them with every tool in the box, and even that may not be enough.

As long as there are people that want to see hogs on the landscape, and places where the swine cannot be hunted, trapped, or poisoned, hogs will persist. But they aren't going to open up the WMAs to hunting in the offseason, and trapping on 10s of thousands of acres is going to be mostly ineffective. What else are they supposed to do?

When people resort to nonsense like this, it's impossible for me to take them seriously.

Not all poison acts like Temik. They don't just keep on killing. Many have a life span. I doubt LDWF is dumb enough to use a Temik type poison even though it would work great.

I hear about all these disease that hogs have tested positive for. What kind of disease would actually kill a hog? I hear that when coon populations get to a certain level, disease knocks them back down. I say, find out what disease will actually kill a hog. Develop it in mass quantity in a lab somewhere. Trap a bunch of hogs, give them the disease, and turn them loose. Let them wipe out the species. If it gets into the domestic hog population, so what. This ain't hog country to begin with. We don't have a lot of domestic hogs here.
