There are a lot of hunters out there that enjoy hog hunting and trapping in Texas, but I understand that it’s not for everyone. Some folks have zero experience when it comes to hunting and trapping anything, let alone feral hogs, so it’s understandable that they will need to contact someone to initiate a hog trapping or hog eradication program once hogs set up shop on their property. But rather than just calling over some dude with a hog trap that is an acquaintance of a friend, it’s a good idea to get someone reputable.
Landowners in Austin, Texas, have a new option when it comes to hog control and removal, Feral Hog Eradication Company. The guy that operates this hog trapping business seems to really have his act together. One look at the state-of-the-art hog trapping technology and hog trap design that he uses tells me he is the real deal. I checked out his web site after having the following email forwarded to me:
“There is a new company in Austin that provides an innovative way to manage feral hogs. The company (Feral Hog Eradication Company) is run by a native Austinite and a friend named Brandon Tilford. He has developed a system to set up a trap to catch entire sounders of hogs. This has proven very effective at eliminating local hog populations. His trap works via a remote monitoring system that allows him to get an email when there is activity in the trap.
Then he can monitor the trap via a live feed and set it remotely when he believes he has the whole sounder. He then takes the feral hogs to a processing facility so that there is not waste of the resource. I think this is much better than the current commercial hunting/trapping operations that typically leave hogs dead on the property.
Check out his web site and keep him in mind if you come across property owners around Austin with a need for his hog trapping services. He is very professional — about 180 degrees from the “hog hunters” that seem to be popular on tv these days.”
