Like the title says I want to kill some pigs. I have several families that can use the meat and if I can help them out and help out the club/landowner I'd love to do it.
If I can find a place where I can deer, turkey and pig hunt I'd love that but I I've a place to hunt deer and turkeys so it's not a big issue if I can't.
I've been a long time member here and have met numerous members. I have no issue paying to hunt. I will pay a full membership for a club spot if I can find the right place. I have no problem participating in work days or even doing more work than my share.
I'm willing to even set up traps. Will be shooting suppressed and will only use a 4 wheeler on established trails.
Would like to find a place with a camp house that can be used to stay in for over night stays if the land is more than 2 hours from Hartselle. If a club is found I have a camper that I would like to set up.

If you know of a place let me know.

I don't think there are a lot of pigs in the northern part of AL, are there?

Something interesting with pigs is people that have em love to complain about them but as soon as someone says they'll come help with the pigs things get kind of quiet. beers

There are small areas with pigs here in the northern part of the state. I'll drive a reasonable distance for a regular place to hunt them. I've hunted them in Sumpter Co which is a solid 3 hours drive but I had a place to stay. That makes all the difference in the distance. I have a camper that I could set up also

And Yes.. everyone hates them but doesn't want to let unknown people come hunt them. I'm sure there's been some bad experiences with people taking advantage of it. Like I said above, I ONLY want to hunt hogs. I have a place to deer hunt

No offense, but that's BS. Animals were hunted to extinction long before modern weapons and thermal sights. People like to piss and moan about hogs but dang sure won't let you come on their land and kill them.

We've also got quite a few professionals that are basically spouting that line to keep their gravy train grant funding going. That's what they really specialize in. They don't give a rip about hunters but love to spend our $$$.

Down here you've got huge areas that are infested with hogs.......If you look at a map you can draw a line from Eufaula to Montgomery north to hwy 80 and there's hogs thick across that area......Letting someone come in on 600 acres or whatever and shoot hogs doesnt change a thing.....They move right back in from the surrounding areas.

Don’t worry I’m not offended. But, If someone has an actual hog problem- and they plan to do something about it in that actually works - it would be some form of mass trapping. Inviting someone to hunt them would be counterproductive and make things worse.

What kind of trapping?

Because if the offer is mass trapping with some form of corral system or brig system - then a bunch of landowners would welcome that I’m sure. If you have a pig brig, and want to offer that time and energy - then great.

But if you want to just peck around and shoot a few and trap a few - then no. That’s not helping with their problem.

I would suggest contacting game wardens or biologist on state lands. Ask for concenrated areas on maps. Go to it! Maybe get own trapping business with insurance. Due to liability and other issues this may present a way to for you. It's not like the old days, too much liability.

Wrong. Recreational hunting of hogs does nothing in the grand scheme of things. Localized trapping done properly does. It takes more time and money than most are willing to throw at it. I can guarantee you the researchers had rather be spending their funding on something else. Hogs can be eradicated. It’s been done. Recreational hunters have never contributed to eradication of hogs and never will.

So hunters killing hogs does nothing to help eradicate them? That's pure "trust the science" crap from people that make their living on this type stuff. Why is it that hogs are such a problem now? They've been here since DeSoto in the 1500s. At what point does a species become native? I'd say 500 years is enough time.

Hogs need to be controlled and are destructive to agriculture. I get it. To be told that they shouldn't be hunted to help with that is total crap. I hunted a piece of property once that the members damn well did eradicate the hogs from, by hunting only.

Many species were historically hunted to extinction (or near it) with primitive weapons. You can't tell me that with today's weapons and sighting technology that isn't possible now.

Meanwhile, the "officials" are OK with baiting corn everywhere and ignore that it probably isn't helping with the hog population. Of course, they get their $$$ for the permits so what was unethical yesterday is fine today. Plus, they can justify more grant funding to get rid of the demon hogs growing fat on the corn.

Yeah, you're comparing animals that had very low reproduction cycles with those that are some of the most prolific breeding animals in the entire kingdom.

Hogs are a much different story. Their reproduction cycle is less than 4 months with an average litter of half a dozen or so. Female piglets become "bearing" age at 6 months.

You will NEVER control a wild hog population with a trigger in areas where they are prolific.

I will 100% agree with you on corn not helping matters, though.

I look at it like the death penalty, the one that gets killed (hog/human) that one will not contribute to the problem again. Still have a big problem but one less, how do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time

It doesn’t matter how much they breed. Bullets reproduce faster than hogs. There just aren’t enough folks willing to put in the effort with hunting them, to eradicate them. Let society and supply chain break down or jump us back 100+ years and hogs would be scarce again…..and it wouldn’t be because folks trapped them with huge sounder cages or that they bred less back in the day. From a true conservation perspective: there’s never a single answer or a reason to discard any partial solution that works even a little.

….but here may be another partial answer. Just remember this when it disappears after some interest with enough $ buys and buries it.

The woods are full of hunters shooting them all deer season and yet their populations are still growing and expanding.

I know a guy who spends a lot of money and time hunting them. He hunts them hard and like longshot he is looking for places to hog hunt only. He is looking cause he’s pretty much killed them all on the property he deer hunts. It’s not impossible to kill em out. But most aren’t gonna spend the time to do it that way.
