    Change from “states that don’t have them, yet” to those that do. Looks like there is no stopping them.

    Shoot every dang one of them. I firmly believe hogs have displaced the deer on our little farm. Haven’t seen a deer all summer.

    I was told years ago that there are two kinds of landowners, one with feral hogs and one that will have feral hogs eventually.

    Probably jumped out of a transport truck headed to a high fence game farm. Never seen a lone female hog, never.

    What I don't understand is that it sounds like Idaho doesn't yet consider it to be an invasive species and they want you to call IDF&G rather than shoot it.

    Bad idea on Idaho’s part. Once pigs get established, they dominate the wildlife feed. Idaho needs to visit the southeastern states and check out the damage a herd can do in one night. I now wish Louisiana would have come out with guns blazing on pigs from the start.
