Big Barr Hog

I caught and cut this hog about 4 years ago behind my house. He has showed back up and has put on some weight. All I am waiting on now is a day off and then I'm bring my best dog and 2 bulldogs down there and see I we can't pay him a little visit. I guess he didn't get the memo the corn is for deer only.. Good hunting guys. Hopefully I will have more pics soon of him hanging from the tree.

Hate to be THAT guy, but people who catch and release pigs are responsible for the hog problems we have now. Shoot those things when you get a chance, dont just catch them and release them.

Well Bayou I am gonna have to say that every man is entitled his own opinion at least we still got that, but I'm going to have to disagree with you on being stereotypical and saying I'm responsible for a hog problem. I have hunted my entire life and hog hunting is just as important to me as deer or anything else.Watching my dogs work and provide for me is better than any ol 8 pt. buck. My family has had hog dogs since before I was born. I can guarantee you that I have killed more hogs than most hunters will, but one thing you wont see me do is kill a boar hog other than to protect my dogs. It makes me sick to my stomach thinking about how people just shoot em to lay and rot and walk off saying man we are doing our part. The hog in the picture is a Barr, that means I castrated him(no more baby making) and you have never tasted better meat than a big fat Barr hog. Maybe I'm just a dumb country boy but the way I look at it is if I'm blessed enough to be able to go in the woods anytime of year and bring fresh meat home to my wife and kids why in the hell would I want to kill em all off. Remember it takes a gun to kill a deer but It takes balls to catch a hog.

Not bashing you in particular, but this mindset is why we will never eliminate pigs. Once pigs become labeled as 'sport' and not the invasive swine that they truly are, the battle is lost. Its happening now

I am definitely not denying the fact that there's a hog problem happening,and its hurting alot more than just animals and farmers.I think that it has alot to do with how 20 years ago a man could hunt anywhere he wanted. There was no leases or private huntingclubs just open land. My dad had an ear mark for hogs through the court house and it was legal for them to roam free and against the law for anyone else to kill. Every weekend (besides deer season) we was up there baying hogs marking them and cutting boars. Then the timber company started leases and limited access that all stopped. I have nothing against hunting leases I am the president to SouthSide hunting club in Starks and love it. Point being when Everyone put stands and feeders up they were in heaven. You know half the people on a lease hardly hunt and then there is 9 months of no pressure. Of course they multiplied. Hogs are ten times smarter than people think that's why you always see more deer than hogs on a stand.

That's funny there. Can't believe you got the jewels pictured!!! Brings back the Basile days on the farm. I believe my uncle, cousin and I made about 200 barrs taste better each day when it was time for the jewels to go.

There's still marked hogs out there.
The only deer hunters that cry is the ones that have never truly hunted. Can't have them hogs eating my expensive deer corn under that automatic feeder down a cut lane by my comfy box stand.
Winn Dixie hunters. Baaah!

Funny stuff right there Rabbit.

We'll harvest no swine before its time.
Had a fella throw down on me because I didn't kill a piglet and just let it lay where it was. I don't do that to armadillos. Those I trap and put in peoples yards that do stuff like that. heh
