Dude, free bacon

It’s better than free: State of TX giving grants to counties to exterminate feral hogs.

    Free hunting trips!

    It all makes sense now!

    When I started going to Texas in the mid-90s the Texans would belly ache about the hogs. I asked, “why not have farmers and landowners pay a bounty for them?”

    The Texans got red-faced and spoke about “private property” and how “all animals belong to the land owner in Texas” but never answered my question. I shrugged and put it down to a typical Texan unresponsive answer anytime you talk to them about anything.

    Now, I understand why they became so upset at the notion of having to pay a bounty. They wanted someone else (the taxpayers) to carry their pack. They are the kings of grifting. If I wore a ten gallon hat, I’d take it off out of respect.

    I’m more than happy to hunt hogs, just out of sympathy for the plant destruction. Of course, if I could score a thermal scope it would make things just that much better.

    Shootin’ Buddy must have been screwed over by a Texan back in the 90’s, his hard on for all things concerning Texas approaches the surreal.

    I don’t see anything in the linked article about tax money or bounties or any of the things he’s whining about.

  5. TomcatsHanger Says:

    Doh, shows what I get for reading, grant money is tax money and a bounty.

  6. Paul Says:


    Will I still have to buy the STUPID hunting license to kill the hogs?

    They ought to drop that requirement.

  7. Vote For David Says:

    Here’s how we could solve the hog problem:

    *Waive requirements for hunting licenses as Paul mentioned
    *Have a publicity campaign that involves setting up one robocall machine to call every gun store in the State
    *The call says: During the period of (date) through (date) please ask your customers with land with hogs on it, to tell everyone with their head screwed on straight that it’s open season on hogs.
    *No taxing, no reporting, just killing hogs.

    I know of TWO ranches where there are hog problems, and I live in The City. I put in a standing offer at each ranch to have me come and kill hogs. Two other men I know, same deal. Zero call backs. We have hogs because we don’t really want to be rid of them – at least, not as much as we don’t want other people shooting up our property. Taxing people to have other people kill hogs is just stupid.

    Last time I looked, feral hogs are classed as vermin in Texas. So they’re like rats. Can be hunted anytime, any place, no license (other than the regular Texas “hunter’s permit” needed by anyone younger than — I think — 45).

    As long as you have the landowner’s permission to hunt them, you’re good to go. Most farmers will welcome you onto their land: all helping hands are welcome.

    Just remember one thing when hunting pigs; the winner eats the loser.

Remember, I do this to entertain me, not you.
