Feral Hogs in North Texas - A Growing Urban Issue
Feral Hogs have become a big problem across the nation, as they are considered an exotic invasive species. Wild Pig populations have grown considerably over the last ten years, and we are now seeing their presence, and destruction, in urban environments. This video explores the urban feral hog issue in North Central Texas.
Produced by the North Central Texas Council of Governments in cooperation with the Texas Parks and Wildlife department for the October 24, 2013 North Texas Regional Feral Hog Forum.
Texas Hunter Eliminates Hundreds of Feral Hogs with Military-Grade Sniper Scope
Feral hogs are tearing up Texas and hunters are fighting back with the help of cutting-edge night vision and thermal imaging technology.
The Trijicon OASYS UTC-Xii is a high-performance thermal clip-on sight which is currently fielded by US Military and elite special operations units.
The UTCxii is designed to be used as a pass-through device mounted in front of an existing day scope. The UTC xii is compatible with day optics ranging in magnification from 1x to well over 10x. With a detection range of 2600 meters, the UTCxii is an excellent optic for long-range targeting and surveillance.

*** Why Do We Hunt Hogs? ***
Feral hogs are a non-native and invasive species in Texas. Each year hogs cause millions of dollars in damage in the form of damaged crops, contaminated water supplies, broken equipment, transmission of diseases and injury to livestock.
Feral hogs compete with native wildlife for resources and also prey directly on the eggs and young of ground nesting birds and will actively hunt small mammals, frogs, lizards and snakes.
Due to their intelligence, adaptability, and prolific breeding habits, traditional methods of hunting and trapping have been largely ineffective in reducing the feral hog population. The introduction of night vision and thermal optics has greatly increased landowners' ability to mitigate the destruction caused by feral hogs.
Feral swine are not considered game animals in Texas and may be hunted by any means or methods at any time of year.
