Going Hog Wild in Texas

feral swine at nightCompetition to kill the most feral hogs starts

A competition among participating Texas counties to kill the most feral hogs and to educate the most residents about the animals starts Monday, and Hays and Caldwell counties are getting ready.

Both have offered a $2 bounty per feral hog tail to encourage people to participate in the program, a grant competition administered by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Counties can collect points during the Hog Out County Grant Program from Oct. 1 to Dec. 31 for the number of feral hogs taken and the number of people who participate in an educational course to learn about the animals.

I think we’ll be seeing more programs like this.
