Living where I am in NJ we have not experienced the amount of pigs that changes them from hogs to varmints.... Once, in a Texas deer blind, I watched what looked like a black freight train pile through a hole in the fence and make its way to some deer feed and spooking the six or seven eating whitetails... With that in mind I`ll leave the floor (and pics) to the boys that truly have a varmint problem....
PS- Photo shows the "caboose" from the freight train I mentioned above...

When I lived in Florida, we were encouraged to kill as many as possible.

While speaking of varmint hogs............ what I`ve seen when encountering a large group is that size varies considerably with many on the small size and that a well placed 40gr 22 mag will work if not making things real exciting...

Varmints can be and are trophies. In texas cougars are varmints, Not so a few miles west in NM.

It didn't take much encouragement for that to happen!

Hasn't been that many years ago that Cougars weren't considered a game animal here in Idaho either. Utah fishermen are still considered varmints! And a lot of them are my relatives!

YEARS AGO I WAS FLYING BACK FROM OUT WEST SOMEWHERE AND 2 GUYS IN FRONT OF ME WERE TALKING. 1 GUY WAS TELLING A GUY FROM ARKANSAS HOW THEY HAD BEEN TROUT FISHING BUT THAT IT WAS CATCH AND RELEASE ONLY. THE GUY FROM ARKANSAS HAD NEVER HEARD OF THE CONCEPT OF CATCH AND RELEASE AND SAID HE WAS NOT SURE THAT WAS LEGAL IN ARKANSAS, IT WAS ALL I COULD TO KEEP FROM LOL.
