I have read Missouri believes that trapping as many in the sounder at once is the most effective meas of eradication. The article stated that hunting will disperse the sounder causing their range to increase.

I know some guys that do that they can catch as many as 30 live hogs in a trap called a boar buster it's operated from a cell phone with a mounted motion sensor and night vision and cell phone activated drop mechanism they cost about 4 grand but they are worth every penny . Hogs will kill and eat a baby deer and they destroy the habitat by eating all the berries and nuts deer eat.

ive read you need to be careful in how you process em due to disease and whatnot. Also read that they taste great just like store bought pork. but ive personally never shot one or even seen a feral pig in wild.
Yes, they carry disease but so do domestic pigs, yes they taste ok if they are 200 pounds or less the male boar tastes like he smells small pigs taste like pork from the store. I wear rubber gloves when field dressing and processing raw pork meat it must be cooked well to destroy and of the blood born disease. In one year I donated 1,700 pounds of processed and packaged pork meat to the needy in my area thru a church food bank.The Large boars become food for coyotes and buzzards I have a special place I put them , it has a ladder stand near by at 60 yards to sit and kill coyotes, the smell of rotten pigs is a good cover secent and I have killed more than 60 coyotes and I leave them where they fall and they keep comming to eat according to my game trail camera.

Not me I only get paid to kill them and remove them. I will take people with me on night hunts where I have ladder stands and feed stations set up so they can get a Hog. But I don't charge anything for that only they must sign a release of liability document for me and the landowner.

100% CORRECT the most effective way is the boar buster drop trap its activated by cell phone. You can catch the entire sounder at once. Some states allow transport of live feral hogs to farms with pens they are treated by a Vet and given medications and kept in pens and fed well boars are castrated and in about 8 to 10 weeks they are slaughtered and are government inspected and become USDA PORK THE OTHER WHITE MEAT! But in my state to transport them they must be dead. I would be a rich man if it were not for that law.

Feral Hogs & Russian Boar Hybrids are in Northern NC and have been for some time they are now as far north as NY State & Canada.

Yeah, I went on a guided boar hunt with dogs in the NC mountains back in the 80s. Watched a big boar someone had penned up chewing hickory nuts like they were popcorn. Give me a holler this winter when you are expecting to kill a couple and I"ll drive down and save you the cleaning.

I like the way they.....

...are tired from a day's hunting and take a nap in the bed of your truck on the way home. The good eating feral ones are the smaller, teenagers as I understand it

Hunting for "wild bacon on the hoof"!!!

Some folks don't realize just what they are dealing with when they walk up on a bunch of feral hogs. They might run away and they might not. Been around them all of my life. They will eat anything they can overpower and that includes a person. That is not speculation but a fact! Keep up the good work and I too will use a 22.

Seeing them in the back of your pickup truck really brings the scale of these beasts into perspective.
