I don’t find them ugly at all and in fact, quite the opposite.  They are very prehistoric looking.

It’s sad that they are out of control and I understand the need for control but I find all the photos of the redneck hunters looking so proud of their kill disgusting.

Ugh, these pigs are awful. No wild hogs in the US are native–the Spanish brought the first ones over in the 16th century and before they became fully domesticated a couple hundred years later they were a MAJOR pest too. They wipe out tons of native species and cause major destruction like you said!! I always heard they were mostly in the deep South, I sure hope I never come across one.

Our dog isn’t trained to hunt but his breed is actually a hog-hunting breed. I am so glad he isn’t a hog hunter cause those animals are NASTY!

@Earlybride:

Oh I wasn’t bashing you AT ALL!!  I love your topic as I wasn’t in the know about this pandemic issue before. 

I just don’t like hunting for pleasure.  As obv these guys are.

For necessity = okay.  For the thrill of the kill and bragging rights? = gross. 

But of course, as with anything, this is just mho

My “redneck” husband used to love that show about hog hunting (I forget what it’s called). They wreak havoc on people’s farms and even livestock. I didn’t know they got that big!

ouch…. Redneck?  can’t they just be hunters? It’s no different then the sailors standing next to their kills.

I think anything that is not native and disctructive to the natural environment should be thinned out.  I’m passing this link on to my …. hunter Fiance.  Altho he’s in the south so is he a redneck hunter?

@HisIrishPrincess:

Sailors standing next to their kills?  I wasn’t aware that they did that.  And if they do and take photos, it is illegal and I wouldn’t like it either.

As for the rest of your comment?  I will leave it alone as I am not going to turn this into a debate on whether hunting is good or bad and all the jazz that goes with hunting/hunters.

@Oneeleven: She might mean fishers. Like when they hold up the giant bass they caught in the potomac (yeah dad!!) for a photo.

I have heard of hogs who kill pets, livestock, even people. Darling Husband got bit by a (domesticated) one when he worked on a farm–pigs are no joke. If I killed a hog that was causing that sort of destruction I would be hella proud and take a big pic.

@MsJeep23: That’s how I feel.  I’m not big on hunting, but if that huge monster had been destroying my farm, I would definitely be happy when it was killed.

@Oneeleven: I think she meant fishermen, not Sailors like my US Navy Sailor husband. 🙂

WOW!!  I was unaware, honestly, that there was any kind of feral hog problem in the US anywhere!  I looked on the website and my state was listed as one of the states with a slight problem with them, but I personally have never seen one.  I know many guys who hunt deer and elk in our state’s gamelands every year, and never heard them talking about seeing one.

@HisIrishPrincess: Most guys who identify with being a redneck (like my husband does) see this as only a positive quality, not an insult 🙂 I just asked him to make sure.
