I watched a show like that about a month ago probably the same show, they also had a show about California game wardens.

lol, that night I dreamed a hog was chasing me and cut the crap out me.
It woke me up

Wild hogs spotted in 4 Arizona counties

http://www.ktar.com/?nid=6&sid=1248520




"LAKE HAVASU, Ariz. Wildlife managers with the U.S. Department of Agriculture are keeping a close eye on the wild hog population in Arizona.

Millions of wild hogs are making their mark across the country, and the Arizona director for the USDA's Wildlife Services division says the last thing he wants to see is a damaging invasive species establish itself in Arizona.

Director David Bergman says wild hogs root up wetlands, damage agriculture crops, threaten endangered species and spread diseases to commercial livestock.

National feral swine expert Jack Mayer says there are estimated to be between 500 and 1,000 wild hogs in Arizona.

The wild swine have been spotted in Cochise, Pima and Yavapai counties. The biggest cluster is in the Lake Havasu National Wildlife Refuge in La Paz County."

I bet there is more than that.

This picture was taken at Reavis at the apple orchards of the man I worked for Lloyd Bridwell. We called the pic "Pink Lloyd" it was used in several magazines.
Had some of the best times of my life right there.

They are all over the state it looks like now. I found a location less than a hour north of the valley. Can you hunt these hogs at night?

Pigs are smart ****ers though. Look at this ****er looking at someone's trail camera, the pig knows something isn't right. This is just another pic in Arizona. They are all over the State now, just need to find a good location to supplement my baccon diet. I have been reading that a 70 to 150lb sow is the best tasting meat. Is this true?

This is one application where a semi-automatic AR-15 would really be useful. Might get a few of them.

That pic almost looks like a javilina not a wild pig.

Pig meat is fantastic

I dont know if there all over the state, but man if they are it sure would be fun to find and hunt.
Maybe one of the Game and fish guys could chime in about this, I would like to know more.

we watched that discovery channel movie on the pigs last year sometime. I think it was in Nov. I saw this one and thought it was a new one but it wasn.t
