i didn't even think about hogs. they are your version of my wolves except I can't kill mine

are they good eating? what did you do w/ all of them?
I don't mess with them. I kill them and pilem up somewhere. They're nasty.  I do have a barn I could grain feed them for a while. But for now I just want them gone. I hate them. They have destroyed a good deer lease

Then you need to keep a watch over the pile & see if you can take out some yotes too - bonus.  Best of luck in thinning the herd, sounds like they're infested pretty thoroughly, so it will take perseverance.

I have never seen a coyote eat a dead wild hog.  That's how nasty they are.

I do have pics of 3-4 different 300+ pounders. If I catch any of them I'll load them and take them to a buyer nearby. The big ones bring over $.50/lb

meh....I guess they could be prepared with enough marinade and seasoning.  Not for me though.

I do know if you grain feed them for a few weeks you can have close to normal tasting pork.  But dealing with trapping them, transporting them, pinning them up, and feeding them is a lot of hassle.

As cheap as Pork is I'd rather take my chances with store bought.  I think all their pork has to be certified safe from various swine diseases.  I do plan to sell some to recover some costs though.  I'll be killing the little ones and taking the bigger ones to the buyer. And any chance I get to shoot one outside the trap I will
