^ That was the first information on this thread that I did not already know.

Re eating poisonous snakes: I learned that several decades ago, when I was a boy, from reading compilations of my grandparents' (even much older) Foxfire magazines. These were 'tame' hogs, but the principle still applies: they stomp on the heads of the snakes, and then

FLAY
THEM
ALIVE

--peeling the skins back. Until the snakes die. Or not, the hogs don't care. Skins go first either way.

I still have those, or Mom does rather. (The Foxfire compilations, not the hog-stripped snake skins.) It occurs to me now that some of those articles involve absolute rubbish tall tales, like snakes rolling along after tucking their tails in their mouths; but the snake-eating method sounded one thousand percent plausible to me.

In conclusion: hogs are like the Reavers from Firefly. Or maybe vice versa.

Next week I am going into full scale hog hunting mode, just like I have for the last several years. My wife and I compete. The hogs usually win. I come in last place in spite of having an IR scope and all of the other advantages I can come up with. I think the problem is that only the really greedy hogs are noisy and dumb enough to wake me up and get shot. I can tell you that the local hogs are now way too smart to get trapped. We keep trying, but no joy.

Solops, my Wife used the same method to catch me. Except she used Bourbon instead of Diesel Fuel.  :2funny:    Wild Hogs are a true menace here in Fla. anywhere in the wild. A sow with piglets is just about the most dangerous animal on Earth.

Honestly, I think bourbon would work better for the hogs, but I am not THAT hard-core.

If we got them drunk enough, maybe they would crawl up on the grill by themselves.  :bd:

That was an odd story.  A State hunting lottery to hunt wild boar on a large stretch of private land.

On a side note I had a deputy sheriff here in West Texas tell me that wild hogs were a great way to get rid of a body. Only thing left will be the teeth and they will be scattered

Well I'd definitely feel a lot safer after a local deputy imparted that knowledge onto me.   :o

Well it might come in handy some day, say when you find pedophile after your underage daughter of your neighbor insists on mowing his hard at 6am every day Saturday

Your daughter of your neighbor? Mowing his hard? 6AM? Everyday and Saturday?
