This is the most badass way to eradicate a whole bunch of those pesky wild pigs. Using thermal optics, 00 buckshot and lasers, these hunters take down 70 feral hogs in the span of about 5 minutes.
Each year, feral hogs cause millions of dollars in damage to crops, water supplies, not to mention all the diseases they can carry. These troublesome pigs have ran rampant in Texas and may be hunted by any means or methods at any time of the year. However, after watching this video, if you aren’t doing it like these guys, you’re doing it wrong.
Feral hogs compete with native wildlife for resources and also prey directly on the eggs and young of ground nesting birds and will actively hunt small mammals, frogs, lizards and snakes.
Due to their intelligence, adaptability, and prolific breeding habits, traditional methods of hunting and trapping have been largely ineffective in reducing the feral hog population. The introduction of night vision and thermal optics has greatly increased landowners’ ability to mitigate the destruction caused by feral hogs.
Feral swine are not considered game animals in Texas and may be hunted by any means or methods at any time of year.
