Episode 018 - Hogs Gone Wild
November 17, 2017
In this episode, Steve and Bronson talk about the problems associated with wild hogs. Some people love 'em, but more people hate 'em, largely because of the damage they cause to agriculture, fields, food plots, forests, and streams. Not to mention, hogs compete for food with our native wildlife like deer and turkey. In Mississippi alone, wild hogs cause over $60 million worth of damage a year. On a national scale, damage estimates are in the billions. If you are serious about deer management and deer hunting, you don't want hogs!
