Hog hunters show more proof of dead pigs than MDC ever has. Hunting has proved to be the most effective way to eradicate anything. Hence why elk was gone from our state, deer at one time, bear. So be somebody decides to break the law no one should be able to hunt an animal. Imagine if because of poachers and bait piles they limited deer and turkey hunting. Even to one week a year. Wouldn't you be upset you are being punished because of a few bad apples. Everyone is entitled to their opinion. Obviously we are in a time where hunters only respect their style and quarry. Hopefully the day never comes where your rights are jeapordized. If you honestly think that stopping hunting is going to allow 13 hired trappers to eliminate hogs then there's some misguidance there. They can't even put a dent in places already illegal to hunt. Hogs get trap shy. Makes it very difficult to catch. So what do you do about the trap shy hogs of hunting is illegal.
