But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag...We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language...And we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."

It never hurts to ask, that is what forums are for.   And you can get many different ideas.

Are you sure about this? Wild hog are considered property of the land owner and considered a nuance. I think they can be can be taken by almost any means including trapping with bait, hunting over bait, with dogs, and they may even be hunted at night with a light.

You can take hogs on your property by any means other than dynamite. Quote from a game warden once.   They are considered an domestic animal not wildlife.

I think you can use dynamite if you can get a blasting permit.

But why would you want to get the government involved with permits?

Here is some information about pigging here. http://www.environment.gov.au/biodiversity/invasive/publications/pubs/cop-feral-pigs.pdf
They are a feral animal not domestic here.  But interestingly, pig dogs are not even mentioned in that document and yet you hardly hear about pigging without dogs.  http://apdha.org.au/index.php?page=code-of-conduct

I just mowed one of my bee yards today (about 2 acres) and the pig "ruts" were so bad I couldn't mow about 1/2ac of it. I'm going to set a trap or two out there for sure!

I have heard of folks in Hawaii using dogs to bay the beast and the hunter then rushing in with either a short spear or else a long machete.

One time about 30 years ago I helped a friend of mine "unload" a CSA Horse pistol he purchased or inherited (I forget which) from an old timer in Arkansas.  It required several #11 caps on most of the nipples but we got her discharged (unloaded that is). My friend told me the old man said that he carried his grand dad's Confiderate pistol to harvest the wild hogs that his dogs bayed.

The last will and testament of one of my maternal Great Grand fathers listed 34 head of ear notched or ear marked hogs running loose in the woods.

Even the Disney flick "Old Yellow" had a hog hunting or pig ear marking segment.
