ON WILD HOGS AND JAVELINAS
Histroy, Biology, Management, and Hunting
by Richard B. Taylor

2016 Long Beach, approx. 250pp, hardcover, dj
ISBN: 978-1-57157-467-1

Hogs have overrun America: They are found in the middle of our biggest cities and they cause untold millions of damage to farmlands and manicured gardens alike. Where did all these swine come from and how did they land up on American shores where they do not belong? The history of the hog in America is a long one that dates all the way back to the period of Columbus. Since that time no large feral animal has more successfully established itself and none has endured more attempts by the hand of man in controlling its numbers than the hog.

The author gives us a comprehensive history of the feral hog, where they occur, how and with what to hunt them, how to trap them if they cannot be shot, what to be careful of (plenty!), and what methods to use to help you get your hog. There is also a comprehensive section on the javelina, a very distant cousin of the feral hog. A thorough and all-inclusive appendix covers a remarkably broad array of hog and javelina facts, stats and terminology, and further reading in case swine fever has struck you! This excellent book will help you better understand these swine, how to outwit them, and how they will likely outwit you! Hog-hunting stories and recipes are included as well.

This is an animal we will have to live with no matter what and will likely be around as long as rats and coyotes, which is forever. This book will help you hunt them . . . or to cope.
