I'm a bit surprised that folks haven't have problems with wild pigs in their gardens - especially those of you in the southern states where these beasts are rampant.

What started me on this topic?  Just received phone call from my caretaker at the Riner property that his game camera caught a pic of one last night.

Wild pigs in VA?  So I googled and discovered that they are all over the state - naive me.

While I've had problems with plants that I've tried to grow there - the problems have been with deer and groundhogs.

Have any of you fought these things? What did you do - put up a chain link fence with concrete under the fence?

We have a huge wild swine population in western NH. A friend of mine had some issues a few years ago. The pigs were uprooting the lawn looking for grubs (protein), not disturbing the vegetable garden. it went on for several seasons.

We have them all over our valley and mountains.  Fortunately, our property doesn't have a stream bed or water - that's where they tend to be.  They can absolutely decimate a garden or lawn in no time flat.  Sturdy fencing is about the only thing that works.  I understand they're fairly lazy, if they can push through it easily they move on.

A friend in AZ has javelina that roam in herds and will raid his grape vines.  He lost an entire acre of sangiovese overnight!

If I had wild pigs/javelina, I'd also own an accurate rifle, and a deep freezer.  Twisted Evil

Wild bacon...mmmm....

Our daughter's wedding featured a baby pig that was captured and hand raised done in a deep pit BBQ over night. Wow was that good.

There are feral hogs in southern and southeastern Ohio.  None in my county yet but I live near the border of Pickaway county where they have been seen.   Sure hope  they stay put.

A friend of ours told us about a friend of HIS who was skinning a feral hog and apparently rubbed his nose while working.  He now has a couple of different bacteria and some other stuff (the docs are not sure of what they are yet) infecting him & his nose specifically.  He's already lost a significant portion due to the large biopsy they had to do.

So be careful!  Wear good gloves & don't rub your nose, etc.

LLM & Camp - YEP! 

Apparently these feral guys get into all sorts of stuff in the woods & swamps, etc.  And there's still so much we don't know medical-wise...! 

Of course, domesticated hogs can get into the same types of stuff, so it pays to be VERY careful.
