Traps or Hog Dogs?
In many cases removing feral pigs with hog dogs has benefits over trapping. There are many professional wild pig trappers that will set up a large round trap to catch many feral pigs at one time. Others will attempt to use multiple small box traps that are less effective at removing large numbers of feral pigs. Although not impossible to trap, large feral pigs are smart and take time to adjust to going into the trap. The large feral pigs can cause the most damage to fences, landscaping, deer feeders, etc. Our dogs will find the large resident wild boars and sows with ease. This is a benefit to the landowner, who's main priority is to stop the damage as soon as possible.
Another benefit of using hog dogs is that we apply pressure to them that they wouldn't get with a hog trapper. If the wild pigs are being caught solely by a trap, new ones can continue coming in with no fear of the property. With up to 4 million feral pigs in Texas and millions more in other states, you can see how important it is to get the word out that your property is not a safe haven. Feral pigs are extremely smart and do communicate danger to other pigs in the area.
In some cases trapping feral pigs is the only option. If you only have wild pigs that come through your land on an irregular basis, then it would be a benefit to have a trap waiting for them. This however is usually not the case for large farms and ranches but can happen on 300 acres or less. Also if you live in the city limits, then a wild pig trapper would be the best option.
We have seen that feral pig removal with hog dogs provides more immediate relief to the landowner, as well as the long term benefits of creating a no-safe zone around your property. However, our main priority is to help you with your wild pig problem and we would be happy to help you contact a trapper in your area free of charge.
