Anyone want to hunt a big hog?
Way back in the day hogs were run like range cattle and dogs were used to round them up. The people I knew growing up that went hog "hunting" were old timers that actually went hog rounding up. The hogs were put in a pen, cut and fattened on corn. To them, shooting hogs was considered like shooting a cow.
One of my fathers friends preferred hogs to deer. So had had the "opportunity" to do this a few times. You roam the woods by jeep with 2-3 hounds out. The hounds find the hogs. You let out half a dozen catch dogs which catch him. The hog throws the dogs. The dogs catch him. Repeat to infinity. Then you go into 8ft high palmettos where you can see about 6-8 feet. Palmettos covered in dogs blood. No guns. The hog shakes the dogs and charges you and the dogs catch him a couple feet away. Repeat. Repeat.....Then you work your way behind the hog and try to cross his back legs to throw him. He throws the dogs and turns on you. Fortunately dogs are extra inspired as you get close. Repeat until you can cross his legs and throw him. Or more precisely keep him off balance till the dogs can knock him down. Tie him up load him in the jeep. Field stitch the dogs.
It is a very.... invigorating.... historical exercise/sport.
But that thing is double the hogs we caught.
