Seriously! Hope you had lots of help. I get worn out doing just two or three.
There were 4 of us. We used a couple of fork lifts from the farm shop to hang them from the forks. Still a lot of work to dress and cape out.
Please tell me you kept at least one pork shoulder to make pulled pork. :mrgreen:
Yep, 2 for me. :-)

I've heard of folks around here seeing the occasional pig, but it's obviously not the problem like it is back home, at least not around the Ozarks. Truth be told I'd love to find a place I could go to hunt them up here as I don't make it back to south Texas as much as I'd like.
Eastern Ozarks around Williamsville. Department of Conservation doesn't want you shooting them on public land now though; they believe shooting 1 or 2 and scattering the rest of the group will make it harder to get them trapped in pens. We were on private land and trapped them. Then it was like shooting fish.. uh, pigs in a barrel. ;-)

We really didn't think about the little ones being able to get through the panels in the fence. The check size was large enough for them to squeeze through. Since it was a borrowed trap, I guess we can't fuss. The smaller checked panels would have been a significant cost to change out.

And, we did have to take some finishing shots at point-blank range. I was a little disapointed with 9mm Speer Gold Dots. Didn't seem to do the job in the head, but the .22 rounds did. :headscratch

Was 19. We had 3 very small ones get out through the fence when we started shooting. One was injured and not worth even trying to save when we we found it. The other two were apparently not injured as we found no blood trail.

Feral Hogs

Had the opportunity to trap and take out 19 feral hogs on my in-law's property in Missouri today. You can see the damage they had done to their pasture beside their deer feed plot. 17 of the 19 got dispatched. A couple of the smaller ones were able to escape through the pen fencing once we started shooting and they spooked. Then the down side of the shoot was having to dress and clean them. Now I am worn out. Tomorrow they go to the processor and get turned into bacon, sausage, pork chops and whatever else they can roust out of them!! Yum!!
