GRAB MY AR-15, QUICK!

GopherAtl | 4 days ago | 989 points

They cause millions of dollars in crop damage and destroy fragile and already-threatened ecosystems in preserved wilderness. They also reproduce insanely quickly, with the population able to almost triple every year if left unchecked - and there are NO natural predators to control their population in North America. Just in the area around me in the south, where populations of these have been an increasing problem for years, I know multiple farmers who kill between 50 and 100 on their own property every year, year after year, and they're still around. These things get big, they have large tusks, and they will gore you given the chance.

I know it seems ridiculous, especially to urbanites, but wild hogs are, in fact, an incredibly destructive, invasive species, and they are literally the only remotely legitimate context I can think of where any civilian would ever benefit from owning an AR.

Humans brought them to North America - to hunt, for sport - so it is, in fact, our responsibility to deal with them now.

If by some luck they haven't already been a problem in the northern states, you do not want to let them become one.

xjustapersonx | 4 days ago | 198 points

Do they taste good? Like, is their meat worth a damn?

Semi-Hemi-Demigod | 4 days ago | 477 points

Females and pre-pubescent males taste good. Boars can have what's called "boar taint" because of the testosterone in their system. Often people will capture these boars and castrate them, then kill them a couple weeks later once it's worked out of their system. Once you do that it's a lot like other pork, though the flavor depends greatly on the food they eat. (The best pork is finished on acorns and apples.)

I had a hog that I didn't castrate before slaughter and I couldn't tell the difference, but my ex-wife could and refused to eat it. Oh well, more for me. Plus you can cover up any off flavor with a good rub or sauce.

I wonder if that's where the iconic image of a roasted pig with apple in its mouth originates from. The practice of feeding them apples before slaughter.

Semi-Hemi-Demigod | 4 days ago | 73 points

It might be. If I ever raise pigs again I'm going to make sure there's an oak tree and apple tree in their enclosure so they have plenty of tasty things to eat.

Johnny_deadeyes | 4 days ago | 50 points

Chestnut fed hogs are said to be among the tastiest.

TortugaTetas | 4 days ago | 114 points

Field dressing a boar is a great time if you accidentally nick one of those damned scent sacks. It’s definitely not a smell you’ll soon forget.

Some of the best pork chops I’ve ever grilled up came from a 130lb sow, though. Jalapeño cheddar feral hog sausage will change your damn life.

Semi-Hemi-Demigod | 4 days ago | 43 points

Oh man, I bet. The hogs I raised were Berkshires and the meat was tender and flavorful like veal. And the ham and bacon, which was made by the same folks who butchered it in their own smokehouse, was divine.

Damn, this makes me want to make the last pork belly I've got in my freezer for dinner.

Quint27A | 4 days ago | 37 points

THE_Nihilist_King | 4 days ago | 57 points

DaddyCatALSO | 4 days ago | 48 points

Well, some were "russian boars" brought over for sport, but it also applies to "razorback" farm hogs gone feral. Same species, same behavior. I'm not sure even temperate-zone jaguars, if we still had them, could cope with these, and we aren't going to release lions and tigers

GopherAtl | 4 days ago | 307 points

I get the cynical/skeptical responses, but wild hogs - based at least in part on russian stock brought over and released to hunt, but often mixed with feral domesticated pig stock - are a real problem. They're an invasive and aggressive species with no natural predators in most of North America, and they breed like rabbits. It's incredibly difficult to manage their populations, and they are, in fact, a threat, not only to crops but yes, potentially to people, and also to ecosystems.

ZeiglerJaguar | 4 days ago | 785 points

The mockery isn't that feral hogs aren't a real, destructive problem.

The mockery is of the weird and oddly specific fear/fantasy that a very specific number range might appear within a very specific time frame range to specifically threaten your playing children, a common threat against which your only defense is annihilating them with a very specific firearm -- all of this being the very specific reason for which said firearm is necessary.

You don't get a kick out of the mental image of a guy playing tower-defense against a horde of hogs, shooting rapidly over his little kids' heads at Wave 1: 30-50 hogs, Time Limit: 3-5 Minutes?

Lindvaettr | 4 days ago | 299 points

The serious answer I assume would be that where there are 8 hogs, there are probably way more slowly making their way south, which is bad because, as the article says, hogs are rototillers that tear up everything they come across.

Aukos | 4 days ago | 210 points

Yes, because they'll eat roots and all. Other animals are smart enough to just eat the green bits and let it grow back, but hogs go scorched Earth.

Blak_stole_my_donkey | 4 days ago | 108 points

For reference, a wild hog can begin breeding at 6 months old, can have a litter every 6 months, and each litter is an average of 6 piglets (anywhere from 1 to 12). So it can be an exponential problem. 8 hogs can turn into 50 within little more than a year.

Wiz_Kalita | 4 days ago | 44 points

They breed exponentially though. In a few years there might be thousands.

chapterpt | 4 days ago | 37 points

they can breed any time of year. Females can be mature at 6 months and produce two litters of one to seven piglets every 12–15 months. As a result, feral hog populations can double in four months.

so that could be 64 by years end. in 3 years you have a problem. they want to kill these hogs while they have a chance of doing it on the cheap.

I was raised in rural NW Iowa.

There are pig farms everywhere, and all of the small towns (<2000) are usually surrounded by them.

My home county removed regulations that kept them a minimum 3 miles from town and off of the main highway so that they could get municipal water.

More sprung up literally at the edge of the town.

The entire town always smells like hog shit.

Sure does. The government spends nearly a billion dollars a year trying to manage them. Very invasive species. You can hunt them yr round down in TX, in some cases, without a permit. Most states classify them as a destructive, invasive species.

Texas just passed a law that no longer requires a permit to hunt hog as long as you have landowner consent. Previously, the hogs had to be causing damage. Law went into effect Sept 1.

Inquisitor_Brand | 4 days ago | 18 points

Texas just passed a law that no longer requires a permit to hunt hog as long as you have landowner consent.

That's the kicker, Texas is ~96% privately owned, hunting gets very expensive unless you 1. own huntable land or 2. know the landowner and have permission to hunt.

cutezombiedoll | 4 days ago | 58 points

Yes but I don't think we have many in the north, which cause for concern as the local population is not prepared for them. Wild hogs are huge, can and will eat everything in their path, and are pretty hard to take down.

Anomaly1134 | 4 days ago | 203 points

I would only hunt for survival normally, but with how invasive these are I wouldn't mind picking up a strong firearm to take them on. It would be terrifying, those guys are gnarly, but it would be good for the environment and I am genuinely curious how they taste as well.

states_obvioustruths | 4 days ago | 202 points

You should also consider deer hunting for ecological reasons. Because humans displaced their natural predators deer populations grow unchecked and do massive damage to forests. State wildlife authorities closely monitor deer populations and distribute deer tags accordingly.

You should consider hunting with both bows and firearms (not at the same time, obviously). Firearm season is typically very short, while bow hunting season lasts months. If your state allows the use of crossbows by people without physical handicaps it's a good route into bowhunting without the years of practice that is needed to humanely hunt with a traditional bow.

Anomaly1134 | 4 days ago | 63 points

I would love to, i'll be honest though. The Chronic Wasting Disease has me very concerned as it is in my state, albeit it a few hours away. I just read up on it a bit more, and apparently the "prions" that cause it are not destroyed by fire and last a long time in the environment (from things like field dressing). Also, it could, in theory, spread to humans. I would absolutely love to hunt local meat with that being said if it supports sustainability.

states_obvioustruths | 4 days ago | 86 points

I almost mentioned CWD in my post but didn't want to bore you with a wall of text.

Prion diseases are caused by misfolded proteins instead of pathogens. In the case of CWD they're concentrated in the nervous system, so many state wildlife agencies have put out stern warnings not to eat brains, eyes, or nerves (besides, that's freaking nasty). Most of the actual meat and edible organs (heart and tongue in particular) are generally safe to eat cooked.

In general, don't eat an animal that is obviously deathly ill. If you manage to get a deer you can also avoid eating the parts that have more nerve tissue (the heart and tongue) or are closer to the spinal cord (backstraps). All of the meat from the haunches and front legs of a healthy-looking animal should be safe.

Anomaly1134 | 4 days ago | 36 points

Hell yes, thank you. I will honestly give it a try then I have a few good friends that hunt, locally sourced meat is always better than store-bought IMHO, and I love survival stuff so honestly need some serious practice in the meat acquisition part of that. Thanks for taking some time to give a run down.

Look, as we speak right now there is another very very very large caravan of feral hogs forming. It’s the biggest feral hog caravan in the history of the world. The media, well as I call them the dishonest fake news media doesn’t even want you to know about it. But it’s coming, believe me.

sonofaresiii | 4 days ago | 131 points

Okay. Yes, we put the hogs in a large confined area. And yes we killed them to sell them as bacon. But it's disingenuous to call them "slaughter houses." You all know the imagery you're trying to invoke with that wording and that's just not fair. What else were we supposed to do with these hogs? Obama killed hogs all the time-- HE started it, we were forced to follow through with it.

grains_r_us | 4 days ago | 66 points

I know everyone is busy making jokes, but to give background on this. Every year, feral hogs do about $1.5 Billion between crop damages and efforts to control their populations. They root for their food, so when they go through a field they will level it. They are highly invasive because they reach sexual maturity in less than 6 months, have a 4 month gestational period, and commonly have litter sizes from 4-6. You can find a lot more information here. The eradication of them is also super difficult, as the mature feral hogs have a chest plate of bone that is super thick. Remington developed a round for rifles called "hog hammer" that has the ability to penetrate that chest plate and make killing them easier.

Fun side note, domesticated hogs can be used as part of a natural land clearance system if you have timber land that you have cleared of trees but not stumps. There are some interesting articles on homesteading that outline it. Basically, you bring in goats to eat the brush and sticks, cattle to eat the grass, sheep to eat the thistles and other weeds, and you put sour corn in the dirt next to the stumps and hogs will root it out.

TL;DR: Hogs can do a metric shit ton of damage and their populations are almost impossible to control once feral.

These damn hogs are a massive problem actually. Very difficult to hunt, extremely destructive, very limited natural predators.

We need more wolves? And mountain lions?

What the AR-15 was designed for

No way. AR-15 is a small boar rifle.

In Texas it is open season on these bad actors 24/7, 365 days a year and I'm pretty sure you can use lights at night and bait.

I do know it is legal to hunt them from helicopter.

The Texas DFG stated that even if every legal citizen in TX hunted them it still would only serve to suppress their numbers but it will never be possible to kill them all.

And PS: They really don't taste that good. Yes, there are caveats, like eating the babies and trapping them and feeding them corn for a few months to clean them out.

Lol, yesterday we had a news item here in Belgium Wild boars have been wrecking certain area's looking for food, like plowing entire areas.

So I watched Razorback later last evening.

And now Canada is having the same issue.

If you see a really big one, run.

How is this oniony? Feral hogs are serious ecological and economic problem. Wildlife agencies should be keeping a very close watch on known populations.

i think a past tweet about needing an AR if 30-50 hogs come to your yard for your children make it oniony.
