Online information can help with war on feral hogs

LITTLE ROCK (AGFC) – When you go to battle against a formidable enemy, it helps to have all the knowledge you can find.

Feral or wild hogs are a foe to most Arkansans, especially owners and managers of land with sizeable amounts of woods, pastures and agricultural fields. The destructive hogs are hard to get a handle on, and it is virtually agreed by everyone that trapping is the way to reduce numbers of hogs rather than trying to do it by hunting.
