    There are 6 million feral hogs in the U.S.

    Here, in this county in the video, they are only paying $2 a tail bounty on them. It'd cost you more than that in bullets, not to mention gas and other expenses. Who'd bother?

    We had/have a big problem with hogs at Fort Stewart. Hogs + night + 30 mile highway to base with no lights = at least one accident per week. Then there was that one time they appeared on the mortar range....
