Feral hogs are a nuisance to ranchers. They destroy farm land and disrupt the natural habitats of many native species. A common assumption is that farmers and landowners welcome hunters willing to wrangle the hogs' population back under control, but a landowner takes a risk by letting a hunter he doesn't know hunt on his property because he becomes the liable party in the instance of an accident.
Sometimes ranchers and farmers generate extra income by charging hunters to hunt feral hogs on their land. Many companies partake in long-term lease agreements with ranchers or buy a property's pig-hunting rights to limit the amount of hogs killed per season. This practice lets the company's hunting clients hunt older hogs, which are considered better hunting trophies.Learn more about Outdoor Adventure
