Ugliest calf I've ever seen. I can understand why you put it down.

We normally don't even walk over and look at em more less eat em. Only reason I put my hands on it was it was in my cattles water.

It's good pork in the winter when they have fattened up on deer corn and acorns.
Usually make sausage out of a couple
100 pounders a year.

I have eaten warthog on African hunts. They serve it for breakfast just like pork. I was thinking feral hogs would be the same.

Keep up the good work.

I sprayed a couple hundred acres with the boom sprayer this past weekend. It felt like some one beat me in the guts. I was literally sore on Monday. It renewed my faith in the crusade.

I haven't seen signs of them here yet, but 20 miles east of me they have a lodge and have guided hunts.
West and southwest of me they are a plague.

A freind of mind had a 2500 acre ranch in Cottle co TX. They used to shoot and butcher them. He works for the state and they started pulling blood samples and testing for diseases. He said after getting the results he'll never touch another one.

I either shoot them in the gut if they are over 100 yards or right over the front leg if 100 yards or less. Never lost one. I use a 45-70. Blows the guts out the other side. That cannon makes sure no matter where you hit them they aint reproducing again. I wont touch them unless I have to. After about 10 minutes it will look like their hair is moving and waving. Its all the ticks moving around because the blood isnt pumping anymore. Pretty gross. Those darn hogs are nasty things.
