Thanks so much, Stuart, for continuing to keep tabs on and post information to links on this very important topic.  I love the questions in the Q & A link. 
All best,

Hi John:

It looks like we were about to go through all of 2012 without a feral pig story--but we were saved at the last minute by this timely news item.

I saw that they are selling wild hog traps down the road at the local feed and seed.  They are a problem here in the southeast.

I should add that the forest where the Euroweenie gathering takes place, is now said to be home to a number of wild boar.  Though not huge ones, so far as I am aware.

They are very big, Simon. However, also very shy so you rarely see them. We have a large population in the woods of East Sussex near where I live, but although I'm often out there walking, I've never seen one. You do see evidence of their digging - they like bluebell bulbs, for instance. My son had one run across the road in front of him when driving home one night.

And while I think of it, we have this to look forward to:

Interesting how here in the UK we call them all "wild boar" irrespective of gender - some are certainly "wild sows". The American term of "wild hog" is more correct (for once!).

Plant a garden with no fence around it, put up a motion detector with a camera.  Wait.  It sort of it like build it and they will come.

As a conservation biologist who makes part of his living doing feral hog control here in New Mexico, I was gratified to accidentally come across this thread.

This may have been covered already, but keep in mind that they're damned good to eat.

We're going to be running an event called "hog school" somewhere in S. New Mexico sometime during the summer of 2013. Maybe we can time it before Pt. Townsend so that people can make a major road trip out of both events.

We'll be covering hunting, butchering, cooking. You might even learn how to make a "cajun microwave", my person favorite cooking method.

Well Joe, you've got my interest!  Easy road trip for me since I'm in El Paso, ...I'll even bring a contingent!

Where in southern NM?

Hey Slack,

We're still looking for the ideal location, which will include lots of hogs that need, uh, dispatching, a bunkhouse at which to stay, and a kitchen, at a place that does not charge dude ranch prices. Looking at areas around Lincoln National Forest, so not too far from you. I'll keep you updated...

Thank you Eric for this very valuable service.

That thing is scary looking.
