No sure if a bounty would do much good. you can already trap and sell them and i don't see too many people running out and trapping them.

Back when i was in college we used to murder them...We ran dogs 2-3 times a week and had up to 40 traps set and sold a bunch. We also shot them on site. We had a lot of farm land and they still trashed all the corn fields. Farmers hired a Helicopter and killed over 100 in the first 2 hrs. They ended up renting the heli twice a month and killed a bunch of pigs. They ended up buying their own heli and still kill tons of pigs.

So no shooting, trapping, doggin and heli's wont do it.....
If we ate them or liked to eat them like they do overseas prices would be double or triple. I bet people would trap them a heck of a lot more for triple what the price is today. Of course most won't trap them for 30-50 cents per pount..But $1.50 per lb there would be traps everywhere.
