Feral Pigs in the Hill Country: Confessions of a Novice Hog Trapper shared by Craig Childs

Feral swine continue to be a menace, from economic damage to the state’s agricultural interests to environmental destruction.

The speaker, after providing an overview of the problem from local, national, and international perspectives, will review management strategies and insights on how to integrate tools for hog management that would be appropriate for a given property and management goals.  

A review of zoonotic illnesses and feral hogs will be followed by an interactive discussion with the audience on the role of hog toxicants.
