I understand a vast majority has pig problem but a bear would be much more destructive than the pigs are at my place. Y'all can keep him Lol

High on the mountain tell me what you see
Bear tracks bear tracks lookin' back at me
Better get your rifle boy before it's too late
Cause the bear's got a little pig and headed through the gate
He's big around the middle and he's broad across the rump
Runnin' ninety miles an hour takin' thirty feet a jump
Ain't never been caught he ain't never been treed
And some folks say he look a lot like me

No pastures getting flipped over and not having to repair them, release the bears.

If you thought hogs and coons tore up feeders and other stuff, just wait to you see what bears can do!

Never said there was.


Hogs just weren’t around then. I had a better chance of seeing a bear or a mountain lion as a kid. I saw both, but never a hog until I was a teenager

Those wanting a bear to lessen the pig problem ain't thinking too good. For starters, just imagine the walk in the dark to and from the deer stand which is near where the bear waits for his prey.

I have black bears in my west Texas lease, they do nothing but destroy deer feeders.

Not just the bears, the bull elk’s damage the feeder motors due to their tall antlers.

One bull would use its big rack to knock the motor around to spread more corn.

Last year we had one bear that damaged one feeder twice in 2 months. Then after the last weekend, we had 4 out of 5 feeders thrown down with their legs bent, and had their barrels smashed like beer cans.

One place I hunt has a few bears…. But now has a ton of hogs. So they ain’t keeping up

Bears don’t bother me there cause I ain’t hunting bait they just cruise by… pigs still clear the area when they “cruise by”

And agreed they are an overgrown coon

Yep, in Alberta they just implemented a government bounty program for hogs to try and keep them under control. Fact is there are plenty of bear in western Alberta, and wolves too, but apparently they are not keeping the hogs in check.
