Last I checked the state approved kill facilities were paying.50 a pound.
They only buy in the cool months or at least the one close to me. Second problem is not always being able to get a trailer to the trap site.
That’s pretty good .

Problem I see is a lot of hunters like the hogs.

Define "small"..
The cost to employ 1 government 'expert' for 1 yr = 99k salary, insurance, pension, ss taxes ect.
99k limited kill fund at $30 head bounty for warm weather kills = 3,300 hogs per year.
During the time period state approved plants aren't buying, to encourage continued eradication.

A feral hog is not my idea of good eatin', but to each their own.

I think it’s a good idea at 20 bucks a head, these hillbillies would make hogs pretty rare. Before it became Politically Incorrect to wear fur most of the nuisance critters in East Texas were rare.
