    around my carp spots there's a bunch of scrubland. i was bumming around in there the other day and came across some hog tracks. 3 inches wide normal, 5 inches wide splayed. i checked this spot the last couple days and found a lot more sign, and at least 3 different sets of tracks. they are messing around a lot in the mud where a pond dried up, and rooting around in the cattails. this is less than 100 yards away from a ymca baseball field. kind of weird because we don't see stuff like this in town here. i might put out some corn and try a snare, we'll see.

    i might start takin my bow with me on my bait expeditions, just in case. i won't worry too much about the hunting in town thing, they don't need to be here and certainly not around kids. i wonder if it would freak anyone out, me following a blood trail through a neighborhood! :smile2:

    Throw down a sack of corn, comeback to it the next morning and stick a pig. Sounds like a terrific gameplan to me. Heck if it was me, I'd stop by the ballpark and get a snocone and a bag of peanuts to munch on too.:big_smile:

    City and dump hogs are the most likely to carry a human related Disease,Bacteria or Virus.You and your family are at risk with these hogs and their meat.Folks have been known to butcher with gloves and care,yet they or a family member prepare the flesh later open handed and normally.The odds are all in your favor of all going well.

    The results can be catastrophic in the rare cases when they do not.Remember,these hogs are feeding on the garbage,raw sewage/feces of homeless people,transients,ally cats and pigeons along with the bodies of any of these that they find.

    Please think about this!

    I love you Brothers and Sisters.peewee

    PeeWee brings up a good point. Here in Nebraska, the Game and Parks eliminated around 65 wild hogs by a local lake. With the studies they did on them, 1 of them had rabies. I know it's only 1 of 65, but this should known to take caution around these critters.

    I would love to be down there in Texas with you Jordan! Smacking some hogs with my bow has always been on my list of animals to harvest!!

    Check and see if it was rabies or psuedo rabies, big difference, the latter mostly being a problem with domestic hogs. Mostly just take the standard precautions, latex gloves, wash hands, and cook well.
