Oh we're not arguing they're a destructive pest
If you could provide a place I'd try to in the next couple years come down with a vet and bag full of AK magazines with the intent of dropping as many as possible. And I wouldn't be worrying about meat.
My gripe is not with you
Part of the reason I'm so for tracking wounded animals is because: Hunters are a lot about public perception. What we do reflects on us as a whole. I know a LOT of people could care less about hunting, but support our side and vote against anti-hunting and anti-trapping proposals. Seeing an animal dragging a shot-off leg or jaw, does little to help our side.
And I do not know wild hogs, but tame ones: I'd hate to leave a wounded one around where people may accidentally stumble on one. "domestic" hogs can get mighty riled over a tiny bit of pain, and are big, mean ornery critters to try and stop.
