Texas Losing War on Feral Hogs
TAMU Feral Hogs
Wild hogs are among the most destructive and invasive species in the United States today. Two million to six million of the animals are wreaking havoc in at least 39 states and four Canadian provinces; half are in Texas, where they do some $52 million in damages annually in Texas alone with the avarage pig causing about $200. annually.

If you're looking for a way to remove problematic pigs from your land without the use of hunting or dogs; then trapping can be a very efficient means of removal. We employ the Jager Pro trapping system. This system allows us to trap an entire sounder with educating any hogs in the sounder of traps therefore making them harder to get rid of in the future. Our remote cameras allow us to be on site monitoring the trap without us actually having to be there in person. We humanely remove the pigs from the trap once they have been captured. Trapping is by far the most effective and efficient means of removing hogs from an area.
Hog Hunting With Thermal
Pigs are primarely a nocturnal animal especially in the hot summer months, due to being very susceptible to sunburn and lacking sweat glads to cool themselves. This makes hunting pigs with the aid of night vision a very effective means, especially in open areas such as crop/hay fields. This method usually leads to older and bigger pigs being taken off the area. Contact us for more information.
Our pig hunts run $175 and include one morning and one evening hunt. These hunts are done from blinds with feeders. We also offer night vision equiped rifles for an additional $50, for hunting at night. We have lodging available. Call for complete details.
