    ....there are shitloads in eastern North Carolina, too....the places they take over are usually pretty brushy and tough to get at....I don't hunt anything myself (takes too much time from fishing), but I've known a lot of guys lose their hunting dogs because they ran across some wild boars......those suckers are m-e-a-n.....worse than a hungry Ann Coulter.....and nearly as ugly.....

    Palins are on their way down to help make sure this happens and they get first shot.

    I think up here they only tag the deer by air, count them or something then let people go hunting.

    Yes, well I do know that they a different breed than domestic pigs, I do eat wild pig meat on regular basis, but I don't know if those wild pigs are the same as the ones in texas.

    In general wild pig meat is really tasty. What kind of diseases do they have?

    Here,from United Wildlife Control:
    Always be aware of the potential for disease transmission when feral hogs are associated with domestic livestock. Cholera, swine brucellosis, trichinosis, bovine tuberculosis, foot and mouth disease, African swine fever, and pseudorabies are all diseases that may be transmitted to livestock (Wood and Barrett 1979). Bovine tuberculosis was transmitted to beef cattle by wild hogs on the Hearst Ranch in California in 1965. Pork that was infected with hog cholera brought into Kosrae Island in the East Carolinas resulted in the decimation of all domestic and feral hogs on the island.

    If you butcher a wild hog ,you are suppose to bury all remaining parts and your gloves!

    Oh my, that's a lot of diseases. Pigs in general have a lot of diseases because they eat rats and stuff like that, but still, that's a long list.
