From what I understand from the State Veterinarian is that letting the scavengers eat a more than likely infected hog, and should that animal then defecate in a pasture then cattle, horses, goats, sheep, dogs, etc. can be infected. The main concern is brucellosis which, according to the state, infects a really high percentage of wild hogs. Recommendations is to forget revenge and bury the dead hogs so the surrounding ecosystem is not contaminated with the brucellosis or other harmful bacteria & pathogens.
Wow..bigguns! Those 3 jokers could wreck a food plot,or field, in one night. It’s amazing what a hog that size can root up! I think they could bust up 4” concrete,if they thought there was a kernel of corn under it!
You won’t build a DIY net trap like that for $200. I’ve already done checked into some netting to build one and your looking at close to $550 just for the net then you have to buy other things to make it work
