400 Pound Feral Hog caught in San Antonio Texas - 09-17-2019, 11:56 AM

Quote:
SAN ANTONIO — Trappers captured a massive 400-pound feral hog on a golf course in Bexar County, highlighting the serious problems caused by feral hogs in the area.

Wyatt Walton, of Lone Star Trapping, which provides trapping services in San Antonio, says the massive animal was captured by dogs.

“We moved shop down to San Antonio in 2016,” said Walton. “Since then we’ve removed over 3,000 head of hogs.”

At the beginning of September, a new state law made it legal to hunt feral hogs in the state of Texas without a license.

It's believed there are about 2 million feral hogs across the state.

“It’s terrible,” said Cliff Porter. “It's been going on for about the last month.”

Porter's front lawn had some re-landscaping done courtesy of a few visitors just rooting around.

“My wife took some pictures this morning,” said Porter. “One of them was pretty big.”

Porter lives in a subdivision just off Culebra. and believes the feral swine are making their homes in a greenway behind his neighborhood.

He's thought about putting a fence up around his yard.


“If I put fences around here then the hogs are going to find someplace else to go,” said Porter.

The homeowner's association for Porter's neighborhood has reached out to the city.

But Animal Care Services say they don't provide traps or hog control services.

“I would just like to see the city really do something about this issue because IU don't believe this is an issue that is centrally located here<” said Porter.

I wouldn't discharge a firearm in the city limits but a compound or cross bow is far quieter than the screams the hog will emit as it runs off to die..... on someone else's lawn. No need to spend $1000s to have a feral trapped and removed...Oh how civil..... paying $1000s of dollars ....how STUPID?...

A few years back, the state built a toll road east of San Antonio to north of Austin. Average speed limit: 80 mph.

First year, they had 11 accidents involving cars hitting hogs crossing the road after dark. I believe 8 people were killed.

My brother and I went hog hunting a couple of years ago. My bro killed one that weighed in at 468 lbs. Mine was a puny 402 lbs.

In 1976, I went on an archery hunt with some friends just outside Utopia, TX. We were hunting for mouflon sheep.

The land owner told us the ranch was being over run with hogs and if we saw any, we could shot them free of charge.

I had killed a really nice mouflon the first morning and was caping it out in camp when a pickup truck pulled into camp with a couple of my friends whooping and hollering.. I glanced over and saw a hog's legs hanging about two feet off the back of the tailgate.

I walked over to take a peek and my jaw dropped open. With its legs hanging off the back of the tailgate, its nose was slammed up against the back of the cab.

Biggest dam hog I've seen to this day. Weighed a little over 1100 lbs!

The guy that shot it said he and his partner were tracking some mouflon when the hog walked out of the brush twelve yards in front of them.

When he thumped it , the hog trotted about twenty yards and collapsed. He and his partner dragged it down the side of the mountain and went and got six ranch workers to help load it in the bed of the truck.

He gave us all meat off and on for the next few months. Surprisingly, the meat was really good!

Nice to see you are still on here!!

That is quite a story. Sounds like HWY 130! I almost got one out there myself screwing around in my Mustang! I was going about 100 at the time too! Thank goodness for ABS, sticky tires and big brakes!! They are your friends!!!

There are plenty of kills bigger than the one in the story but not too many uglier
