    VDGIF and the State Ag have set up cameras and are trapping hogs on the property I hunt in Culpeper . Wish they leave them alone

    Feral pigs were introduced by hunters from Florida as I understand it by hunters who were bored hunting deer. I'd kill a hog before I'd kill a coyote....its not even close for me which one I'd take first.

    Story has it the feral pig started in the Culpeper region many years ago when a farmer who raised pigs, passed away and his hogs got loose. When we had that bad drought few years back, the hogs were able to cross into upper parts of Orange County via the Rapidan River.

    Same I heard Wayne - I should have been clearer on my comment. My fear is that in several states people are intentionally releasing hogs to create hunting opportunity - especially when it creates a year round hunting opportunity that some guides and outfitters will profit from. Big money in hog hunting these days.

    There was a good documentary called the Pig Bomb I saw on cable a few years ago. I think the domestic feral pig is not such a menace. It's these Eurasian type hogs that bigger and meaner that are causing many of the problems.
