Since there isn't an incentive to have them around, hog hunters have no incentive to bring in more. Trapping is far more effective than hunting. In Texas, the hog lifestyle is so much a part of their culture now they will never allow getting rid of all of them.

    Can the pigs with atrial fibrillation or blood clotting issues like DVT still use it?

    As long as their veterinarian authorizes it.

    I would bet that with an aggressive campaign of traps, poison, habitat eradication and hunting you could wipe out any species in an area.

    In theory, maybe, but history hasn't really proved that it would work for either Coyotes or feral hogs. With every species that I can think of that has been driven to extinction in N. America, hunting was only a partial factor, with habitat destruction being a bigger factor, along with the species not being especially prolific.

    With Coyotes and feral hogs being as prolific as they are, and with the great habitats that they occupy, it would really take some doing to eradicate them.

    I've shot Coyotes, but I've never shot a hog. The way I look at it, they both give great opportunities for sport, but I'm just not sure that hunters limit their numbers to any great effect.
    No matter how cynical you become, it's never enough to keep up.

    I’ve never hog hunted in Texas but I assume what used to be a easy task of asking a farmer to hunt hogs on his land and him being greatful for every one taken has turned into “outfitters” leasing the farmers land which would be a win win for the farmer so that the outfitter can sell hunts. Now you have less people going out killing hogs at their free will.

    Greed is killing the sport of hunting for most people unless you have deep pockets for a lease these days.

    Seems like with so many hogs running around, they could figure out a way to get the price of bacon to come down.

    First, there are plenty of low cost, high value hunting options to be found in Texas, one just has to invest more time and effort than a 5 minute google search.

    Second, I'm not sure why so many expect to be provided with something of value for free or nearly so but for those that do, $100 gets you a 5 day non-resident hunting license and access to tens of thousands of acres of public land with hogs via an public land hunting permit. Of course, this requires one to do the work of researching opportunities, invest the effort in finding the hogs, and put in the effort to retrieve and process kills. Most insist on having nice accommodations, a guide and someone to process the kill for them and wonder why it costs so much.

    Third, those serious about reducing hogs on their property employ trappers instead of entertaining hunters. Those that seek to entertain hunters have made the decision that living with hogs and charging fees to hunt them is more advantageous than trying to eliminate them. Having made the decision to live with the hogs, they charge accordingly and find plenty of people who have money but lack time or the willingness to put in the effort.

    Like most things in life, you can have cheap, easy or plentiful, pick two of the three.

    A whole whopping $48 bucks for a out of state license is really that much of an impediment to hunting hogs in Texas?
