    Ok folks, I don't know that I'll get much from this but just puttin' it out there. I am an avid shooter/hunter and thoroughly enjoy any kind of hunting. My usual spot is a nice stretch of property in Pearsall, Texas which is usually teeming with hogs. However, since I live in Leander(and it's not deer season), I would love to volunteer my services as a hog exterminator to all of the central and south Texas area. I will camp out if necessary and provide all of my own equipment including a 4 wheeler, camping supplies and of course, guns and ammo. I am a cautious and careful hunter(always licensed), I mind property boundries and respect the land. I do NOT eat wild hogs, so I can only offer to pile em' up somewhere or drag them to an area of your choosing. I understand the liabilty behind allowing someone to hunt on your property, so I will gladly sign a waiver if necessary. If you want to get to know me better first, send me a PM. I would gladly meet you face to face first, if you prefer. Also, if you are a landowner with little or no experience hunting, I would love to share my wealth of hunting knowledge with you and I have plenty of extra guns if you need to borrow one. In Pearsall, hogs are so abundant, you can hardly put a dent in the population without year round effort. If you've got a hog problem, I've got the answer - Texmex :patriot:

    Eatin' hog meat

    Well biglucky, my guess is that you have never had a taste of south Texas wild boar hog. They are NOT very good eating once they are mature. Maybe the little ones would cook up nice but a mature boar hog.....I would have to take your word for it.:mad0079:

    A little lesson on the non native invasive species known as Sus Scrofa{ or feral pig}

    They have gotten so bad in Texas that they are shoot on site vermin. Not a waste at all. Like shooting rats, or grackles, just bigger and more destructive.

    It is possible for them to have 2 litters per year of 2-12.
    They can carry a clearing house of diseases some of which are transmittable to humans, the rest to domestic livestock.

    Before you pass judgment learn the topic matter.

    I killed 211 last year and the vultures and coyotes ate good.

    I did keep 2 that I shot on my brother in law's place but the other 211, yote food.

    Backstraps on a big mature boar are fine, as are the hams. The trick is to clean the hide before you butcher it. I know several people who do not even gut them, they just carve the parts off and leave the rest.

    Hog meat

    Thanks for your input HOJI, I feel the same way about the Hog "vermin". Maybe next time I bag one, I'll give those hams a try. It's true, I see em' at Roy's place(my preffered processer in Pearsall) every year.:fighting0010:

    With soap and a water hose. It does wonders for the smell. :rofl: but it also keeps contaminates off the meat. Hogs do taste good as long as they're done right. :happy0001:

    And by the way I have no place to hog hunt and love to hunt the things. I live in the Leander/Cedar Park area and would be willing to sign the wavers and assist him in the population control.:happy0001: :rofl:
