Here in NE Texas wild hogs are a very expensive problem, rooting large holes that damage both grazing pastures as well as farm equipment. Yesterday as I was walking through one of our pastures I was dismayed to see lots of pasture damage. The damage is shocking & widespread.
These destructive wild-hog rototillers have rooted huge holes in various large swaths in our pasture. Some holes are over two-feet deep! I wrote about ways we attempt to Reduce Wild-Hog Populations on our Texas Homestead.
Do you struggle with hog damage on your place, and what is your most effective method of control?

I’ve seen this kind of damage before. Hogs can decimate an entire pasture in one night. They can also reproduce 3 times a year making them impossible to eradicate.
