Better hog proof your yard ! Ive seen too many looking like a roto tiller went wild. I saw one poor guys yard a couple miles out of Troup get hit one night. He was just getting it all back in shape when I came home from work around 6:00 pm or so. He had his shovel and rake in his wheelbarrow going to his garage. The next morning when I came through about gray daylight I could see that they had hit him again. A chain link fence went up in the next three days. About a week later his neighbor got hit, another fence went up. Guy down the road saw that, he E-fenced his. Those **** hogs are as good at selling fences as Obama was at selling guns !

I definitely plan on it Buddy of mine about 4 miles away had hogs but didnt have problem with them until he put in about 20 pallets of sod. Took them about a week to find it. Results were not good !

Years ago, when I was still in high school, where we lived for 20 years. For 15 or so years, we had no hog problems where we lived. Then one day we walk outside, I don't remember what time of the year it was. There were a couple of large holes in the front yard, looked like someone dug a couple of fox holes in the front yard. As usual, I got yelled at for digging holes in the yard, as usual I had no idea what happened. I went and looked at the holes and found hog tracks, showed my step father, he looked the holes over and the tracks and agreed with me. For over a year, randomly at night, hogs would hit someone's yard. After a month, about every yard in the neighbor hood, had big holes about 1 1/2 ft. deep. Don't know what they were after.

I tried to stay up and shoot them with my bow, but they would never show up while I was waiting up for them.

Ive been seeing both these little bucks just over the fence and in the acre or so of woods inside the fence, but this is the first time Ive seen them in the yard. Nothing much out there except centipede grass.

Two years in a row I have a nesting pair of red tail hawks in the back yard next To my pond. They have raised 4 little ones.
