Nobody said don't kill them but as someone else said, gut shooting intentionally is a dick move.

I aint ever intentionally killed anything to make it suffer, with the exception of fodder worms, I HATE THOSE BASTARDS! If something needs killing I have ZERO issue taking on the task at hand, but making something suffer is just cruel and heartless.

You're the dumbass who came on a public forum asking for opinions when you could have just kept your little animal torture fantasies to yourself.

If any of you had bothered to read the OP i wasnt asking or even concerned about opinions gut shooting feral hogs ! i was asking about weaponry for the task at hand and the effects of my usage. I appreciate those of you who have dealt with a similar problem and your understanding.

New direction for hog control. Pretty cool and good solution. Lots more to be done but a real good start.

Ive killed more hogs than most people in TN have ever seen with the exception of houndsmen and Ive NEVER left one or shot one through the guts intentionally. In fact I think Ive only ever lost ONE and that one was at 435 yards right at dark and I couldn't tell for sure which way he was facing. I THOUGHT I put it right behind his shoulder facing left. As it turns out he was facing right and I put it right in front of his ham in the flank, aka a gut shot. Even at that he didn't go 40 yards, it was just too dark to see him. We found him the next day.

One of the first hogs I ever saw get shot was gut shot while at a full gallop. 2.75" FFAR 17# HE detonated directly below his belly button as best I could tell. A) It didn't suffer. B) There weren't chitt left for the mess kit.


I am..........disturbed.

Maybe you should check out some of the posters that have 3,4 and 5 times as many posts as me and tell them they need to get a life too. You can start with the one right below my last post ltppowell. LOL. But I guess maybe I haven't done much since I never intentionally gut shot anything in my life. I'll leave animal cruelty to the psychopaths.

That hog you saw in the ditch was no more than 5 or 6 miles from me. The only thing I have been able to do is hold down the population until some more move into the void. With the end of deer season this month I'll get some new ones because all the hunters will quit baiting. I feed the deer and squirrels a little corn all year. I wouldn't expect hunters with dogs to be effective. They kill or catch a few but mostly scatter them. I agree with the others that purposely gut shooting to wound isn't right. My little 2WD Honda Recon can drag off a big hog. I gut shoot sometimes in that I shoot hogs facing away right under the tail but I'm using a .30-06 with a 180 grain bullet so it goes through the guts and past the diaphragm and usually takes the hog down right there.

Maybe you can take some action to stop your neighbor from importing trap shy hogs because once they've been trapped and maybe shot at in the daytime they are hard to kill or catch. If he keeps stocking more you are spinning your wheels trying to kill them. If it was me and I could prove it he would be explaining it to the judge.

I think the problem with your theory is you're assuming they'll run off and die back on your neighbor's place. They could die on your place too, just out of sight.

I've had pretty good luck with trap shy hogs by shooting them at night over bait. Corn works as good as any. Elusive Wildlife Technologies makes a motion detector light called the Blind Sider but you need to get the green version. Red scares them off. Green might also but after a night or two they accept green. Then all you need to do is get them coming and be sure they can't come in downwind of you. The only issue I had was sometimes not being able to see my cross hairs but I solved that with a lighted reticle. If the hogs are coming in the wee hours and you don't like to stay up until 3AM just cut back on they bait so they have to beat the competition to it. You can have them coming at 8PM. A camera helps a lot in figuring out their schedule.

As I've indicated before you need to stop the import of new hogs whatever that takes.
