I would say these clowns arent hunters or outdoorsman and in NO WAY represent the hunting community as a whole. people like this are THRILL KILLERS, they hunt to kill and to have killed. whereas hunters and outdoorsman hunt to have hunted and participate in nature while procuring their own food.
Yeah but you might not say that if it was your livelihood being decimated by these hogs, who by the way do not belong here.
You are correct, although I do hunt normal game animals at times, what we are doing with pigs is extermination. It requires many of the same skills as what you all would call hunting but it is an entirely different ballgame. We aren't killing for food, we are killing them to get rid of them.
I would say that you don't know squat about the feral hog problem in the south. It is no more about sport hunting than calling the Orkin man to come deal with cockroaches or mice in your house. Providing you have mice that can weigh in excess of 400 lbs. Sometimes a LOT more than 400 lbs. I was staying on a ranch for a while and some of the hog tracks I found were 6-8 inches long and at least 4 inches wide. When I saw how big the tracks were, I went to carrying a semi automatic rifle with a high capacity magazine in addition to my handgun. While 6 rounds of 357 magnum are good, against a dangerous animal, 15 rounds of 30 caliber rifle ammo is better. These things are smart, tough, breed like flies and are pretty dangerous. They eat almost anything including livestock, pets and people if they can't get away from the hogs.
Mmm ... yeahhhh . . . . . . . you know what. EIPzee ? I'm guessing you didn't read through the story above, before commenting.
Here's a quote from above:
[ Every weekend, Brown and Palmer send their drone buzzing around a piece of farm property. When they spot a pig on the live video feed, Palmer — a crack shot — uses a rifle with a night vision scope to kill it clean. It’s sleek, fast, reliable – and not what you’d call sporting.
But killing pigs is no sport, if you ask Brown. It’s extermination, plain and simple. “There’s no concept of fair chase when it comes to pigs, no sense of conservation,” he said. ]
Minor disagreement with Cy Brown, on those last four words. It IS about conservation. Wild hogs are incredibly destructive to both wild habitat, and domestic private property. Exterminating them altogether is a VERY sound idea.

wild dogs, not jackals. Jackals are pair animals not pack animals as are wild dogs.
LOL that's the first thing I noticed - they're not jackals. African Wild Dogs are brilliantly coordinated hunters in packs - they strategically surround their prey.

what did he expect when he called the SS. the SS does what the SS does, this father learned the hard lesson that these “SS trusters” DONT BELIEVE UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO THEM.
Welcome to modern america, or 1930′s germany as I like to call it.

It was actually just south of Eureka North Carolina, off big daddy’s road. Still buried in the swamp as the story goes round here.

Where is the justice? Where are the TRUE Americans that could have easily booted in the heaD these three badged thugs and release the victim? I pray Im never put in that situation as a bystander, I would have defended that, swiftly and physically, then went to jail also. STAND UP YE COWARDS, YOU LOOK LIKE 30′s NAZIS!!!!!1

The ole south is the worst for this kind of stuff. They know that the they’ll never be challenged by any of their own officers, and they know that the DA’s and the Judges will support them no matter what they say or do.
This is what we call cronie justice.

Individuals like Nicky, Gillroy, Bluedog and Warhorse would be the one’s in 1930′s Germany who marched with the nazi’s.

@nickylouse: because they were obviously trying “surprise” the suspect, with all their vehicles and the swat van DIRECTLY in front of the house, Logic of 2yr old. The people are getting tired of the police state and the mass incompetence of law enforcement around the nation. I probably would have sacrificed my life, exercised my 2nd amendment rights, and took down as many tyrants as I could have.
P.S. The Germans were blindly, note the word, BLINDLY, defending the Nazi’s; therefore they deserved the oppression and evil the Nazi’s imposed on them, THINK ABOUT THAT.

Go back to sleep little sheep, No one should care that our own government is data mining every single phone call and every single post every American has ever written. No, nothing to worry about, go back to sleep, step in line to the new world order.
I don’t even think we should be called the USA anymore, our founders would be fleeing our own nation right know.

Ridiculous. Those who actually believe they are safe because “police protect” them are intellectually challenged.
A a Human being YOU PROTECT YOURSELF, and should expect no-one else to do that for you.

Arming the Syrians is idiotic, they are barbarians and religious zealots, arming them would ensure the middle east has one more Muslim Brotherhood ran theocracy, leading one step closer to the caliphate.
I couldn’t even fathom what an unarmed America would look like, especially with whats become of our police forces since the 90′s. Even in our own once righteous nation, Our armed citizenry are the only thing preventing tyranny.

you forgot Romney in the “evil person” list. He wishes to take away you rights just the same.
February 12, 2012 at 7:46pm
I wish she would have been honest. ROMNEY IS NOT A CONSERVATIVE, HE’S NOT EVEN A REPUBLICAN. ROMNEY IS A LIBERAL PROGRESSIVE, HIS RECORD AS GOVERNOR PROVES THAT.
February 12, 2012 at 7:42pm
Soros is right. In the early debates Romney said he “will do stimulus correctly”. More big government progressive policies, just like in Mass
February 12, 2012 at 7:40pm
No joke. Romney said he would in the early debates, before his handlers got control of him.
