We are Hog Hunting this week. With feral hogs compete directly with livestock as well as game and nongame wildlife species for food. However, the main damage caused to livestock and wildlife is indirect destruction of habitat and agriculture commodities. Rooting and trampling activity for food can damage agricultural crops, fields, and livestock feeding and watering facilities. Often wildlife feeders are damaged or destroyed. They also destabilize wetland areas, springs, creeks and tanks by excessive rooting and wallowing. In addition to habitat destruction and alteration, hogs can destroy forestry plantings and damage trees. While not active predators, wild hogs may prey on fawns, young lambs, and kid goats. If the opportunity arises, they may also destroy and consume eggs of ground nesting birds, such as turkeys and quail.

In this video we look at numerous ways to hunt hogs. We utilize everything from a crossbow to a handgun to hunt these destructive creatures. We even use thermal optics for a night time hunt. Some of the highlights in this video include the Smith and Wesson Performance Center MP10 in 6.5 Creedmoor, the Performance Center .460XVR handgun, and the Thompson Center Encore Pro Hunter.
