Feral hogs, or wild pigs, are an invasive species that are running wild expanding their territory across the United States. Feral hogs are not native to North America and, according to some experts, cause $1.5 billion in damage each year to farmers, ranchers, and native wildlife. Mainly nocturnal, they can breed from as young as six months and produce litters of, on average, four to six – but up to twelve – piglets as often as three times every 18 months. Scouting for food, they damage crops, fields, trees and habitations and sometimes eat other wildlife.
The wild hogs seem to thrive in almost any conditions, climate or ecosystem in the South. They are surprisingly intelligent mammals and evade the best efforts to trap or kill them (and those that have been unsuccessfully hunted are even smarter). They have no natural predators but we the people.
The Pure Instinct Hunting team has been hard at work doing our part to help control the population of this nuisance. Here is a short video of some of the work we have done to help out.
