With the deer and elk populations hurting in the area, WDFW had to put something out to feed the wolves.....I mean coyote in the area.  8)

WDFW will probably hire some outside group for $3 million to shoot the pigs. Probably have them buried too.  >:(

Look to be some pretty good looking domestic pigs in that picture. Seen much worse looking pigs kept in many backyards over the years. If you could find them they would sure be tasty :EAT:!

It would be great to have a larger huntable pig population.

Also, it would really suck to have a wild pig population.

Duroc, Poland, hamp crosses, fences are always a problem.  That nose and neck dismantle most anything.  Harvest away, not something you want on their own.

USFWS is who is tasked with shooting them.

The pigs in the picture are domestic, who ever took the pic drove right up to them.  Yes Yes, I know pigs don't stay domestic very long, but those in the article appear just turned loose or escaped. They still have a lot of fat on them and no muscle tone yet.   The appear to be a mixed birkshire, Large Black and possibly some Tamworth, but it's difficult to tell with hogs. 

Definitely mixed heritage hogs though.  I wonder if someone didn't loose their hogs or are trying to start a wild population  :dunno:

Once I get my truck fixed, tree fell on the hood in my driveway last Friday, and some new tires on it I will be heading up there. I know the area pretty well and if they are up there hopefully find tracks. If I can't cut a track on them then I say BS. Either way I will get to spend a nice day in the mountains!

I don't see why one couldn't run dogs for pigs.  It is a popular way in other states.  Usually a few pit bulls or mixes make the best pig dogs.

I agree 100%. Sadly I don't have the dogs for that though lol. I do have a 4x4 truck and will be putting a new set of cooper stt pro's on it soon. Probably load the wife, buddy, guns, ammo, and hopefully find tracks then just follow the tracks and if they are really up there we can pop a few. I really want to see what either a .17 hmr to the brain or a .308 win with 180 gr hornady eldx handloads to the brain of a pig will do.
