Wild Hogs Cause $1.5 Billion in U.S. Agriculture Damage Each Year

Wild HogMore than six million feral hogs roam across 47 U.S. states and cause more than $1.5 billion in agriculture damages each year, according to a recent TODAY News report.

The wild pigs are bringing their path of destruction further north too.

“This truly is becoming a national crisis,’’ John Mayer, the manager of environmental science at the Savannah River (S.C.) National Laboratory, told TODAY.

There are likely many opportunities for trappers and predator hunters to access new properties if we offer our services to farmers who are struggling with wild hogs on their farmland.

  1. Boo Hoo whah, whah, whah!
    All I hear is how hogs are destroying land, crops, etc… But if you want to help with that problem, it will cost you dearly. If you want to hunt on public land in FL, you have to buy a non-resident hunting license which isn’t cheap and if you want to hunt on private land, the land owner wants to charge $200 a head for the things! So let those pigs keep roaming! soouuiiiieeeee!
