I don't doubt hogs would eat diesel soaked corn, they eat anything. I am not worried about ground contamination and plant deaths and blah blah either. I used diesel to burn trees and stumps all the time, until it got to $3.50 a gallon. Too expensive to burn now. The only concern I have is that I eat what I shoot, and if the hog eats diesel, that can't be healthy for the hog, and must filter into the meat. I would never eat a hog that I shot over diesel corn. Call me crazy, but I am against that. If you want to eradicate them, trap them till you can't stand it, shoot every one and burn the carcasses with the diesel if you don't want them. Don't lube them up internally so that the guy on the next lease shoots a hog to eat and burps diesel.
