  1. Politicians have wandered too far off the reservation. A free people don’t need a government permit for everything. There is no reason to believe the government needs to be involved so much in our lives. We do not need overlords, we rule ourselves. It’s time to gut unnecessary government agencies that feel the need to justify their existence by taking more money and creating red tape for what is an eradication effort.

  2. any time the Government gets involved in anything they will mess it up,we have so many game laws now that an ordinary human can mess up even while trying to follow all the rules once going hunting or fishing was easy and fun,but now you just about need to have a lawyer to under stand all the game laws,what with state laws and hunting on federal lands ,it can be tricky once while trout fishing I was checked by a conservation officer and I had just bought my permit that morning the officer whipped out his ticket book and began to write me a ticket ,so I asked what it was for and he told me that I was fishing on federal land Natl. forest and i diddnt have a Natl. Forest stamp which is 3 dollars ,so I looked in my wallet and found the stamp it was attached to my hunting permit .so I handed it to him and I was all good,so many rules and regs .most folks just don't want the hassel of trying to figgure the whole mess out so they just avoid it .and once you think you know it all they change the rules each year

  3. I got five hogs last night. One of them at the grocery store , and the other four at two different bars. Pretty good night if you ask me.

  4. This news clip really did not provide much valuable information as far as explaining the "why", but I absolutely agree that you should not be allowed to transport LIVE hogs around all willy nilly without any regulations. People taking hogs and putting them in new places where they should not be is how this whole mess got started.

  5. Come to the south. In Georgia there are no limits on how many you can kill and there is no season all you need is a hunting license.

  6. Its just another whey ta get money. Those pricks will steal any way they can theres no other reason other then the money.

  7. It's totally immoral place normal hunting rules upon evasive species.
    Only discourages thier earliest possible removal, meanwhile the local flora and fauna suffer. Farmers too.

  8. Ferrel hogs will turn a forest into a dessert an are not from this country they were relessed to clear brush looking for someone. Farm pigs go ferrel in one year if released.

  9. Hold up, guys. There may be more to this. In MO and TN the Conserv. Dept has stopped all on purpose hog hunting. Landowners call and the agents bring a huge trap and get the whole sounder. It's working. They say shooting a couple just scatters them. Apparently, some unscrupulous people were releasing hogs to maintain the " sport."

  10. We can cage and fence them in hunting preserves, therefore it is also possible to fence them out of the farmer's crops. They are intelligent enough to stay away and look for food elsewhere, in the mountainous areas, or wooded areas, away from human settlements. If the gunhoe hunters would let the predator animals come back, they can keep a check on them like always, before guns.

  11. The state of Missouri has made it illegal to hunt/kill hogs on any public land, and any private land where the Conservation Dept. is allowed permission to trap them. Any tampering with traps or areas where the Dept. has traps is considered a felony. Lots of hunters in southeast Mo. are Extremely pissed about this and I get email alerts from MDC on a regular basis asking anyone who has information about some individuals destroying MDC's trail cameras or tampering with their trapping efforts to contact a local officer. I doubt that they get many calls. Feral Hogs are an invasive species in Mo. and those species are Not Protected same goes for Armadillos, yet MDC has basically "protected" them by not allowing hunters to hunt them. Over reaching Government Control happens on every level from the Federal to State to County and City and it's sad to say the least. You never know when your Rights will be taken from you.

  12. Whats next????? a license to ……stop hunting fishing traping and buying wild mustangs STOP and make them pay you and beg you to do someting about them. Problem solved in a few years

  13. Whats next????? a license to ……stop hunting fishing traping and buying wild mustangs STOP and make them pay you and beg you to do someting about them. Problem solved in a few years.

  14. I just found out here in Ontario a turkey liscence is $25, and you are only allowed to shoot one male. In Newfoudland people are being killed by moose wandering onto highways and they have very strict moose hunting laws. I visited Newfoudland last summer and saw 2 moose in four days and in Ontario I see one every 10 years. It just seems wrong.

  15. Dr, Roach were get you get your degree from "Stupid University"; wild hogs are multiplying so fast that they can not be killed fast enough.

  16. I don’t live in this state this news channel’s in but that’s a pretty stupid rule. Where I come from as long as the hog is dead they don’t care.

  17. You need to vote the politicians out of office, they do know the power of the vote, the last election is a good example their jobs are not secure

  18. When a business starts doing really well, it is the duty of the government to regulate and take money from it so it does not grow any more.

  19. What about hunting feral newscasters. this will certainly reduce the number of stupid people who run their mouth wild.

  20. The fact you have to pay some bullshit outfitter to hunt hogs is robbery enough. If they were such a problem then the area would be public land for all to hunt

  21. Hogs do about 52 million in damage in Texas, and billions nationwide. Let government pay for the destruction of crops. They love them, let them pay for them.

  22. Typical. Give a politician a pencil and a piece of paper, and he/she/it will quickly come up with several laws, none of which do any good, but actually make everything worse. ALA the Oklahoma rules. Lots of this is done hoping to generate money in the form of licenses, fines, bullshit limits, rules that interfere, etc. I know of no politician that I would trust with actual, real money.

  23. So as long as animals kill ppl. and do mamage on land , it is against the law to make those animalś exstint ?.They are acting like a war is about to happen and don´t want the good ppl. to have a safe place to hide at from The English and other Communists , some ppl. may be wondering , or believe they seeing and reading about or something . And says if a duck walks like a duck and quacks like a duck , then it´s a duck . Me , I just open minded on everything seeing things are not impossible too often as well , is how I see everything . I don´t get it . It doesn´t make sense then something is up , right , whatever it may be ?, or does s/o know something I don´t ?.

  24. movement of live feral swine …….really   Shoot the little fellers and then cook them.  catch them and feed them democrats to put some weight on then shoot them

  25. And some states don't even allow live transport. Period . . . and for good reason !
    As for these businesses, well, remember the buggy whip ?

  26. "Maintain a balance".. of a destructive and invasive species. It's 100% cash grab by a crooked state legislature.

  27. I knew the government would get involved in this. The stinking government is a greedy bunch of scumbags in my opinion. If the states start making people pay for this the gov should be held liable for the damages these hogs are causing in my opinion.

  28. I need a 24 hour license to catch a politician and surprise him with a habanero chilly paste ENIMA! Any volunteers?

  29. Well ,I personally know a buncha teens that use tannerite to rid of pigs in isolated areas ! They came from Tennessee and boy they got great ideas ! Next they wanta try dynamite to rid of large groups of those destructive fucken pigs !

  30. In Ohio the garmers dont go to farm bureau /state meetings so farm bureau passes laws to suit them,not the farmers. You got to get to them meetings boys ,for the change you want or dont want.

  31. 🤣😂🤣 if I owned a hog farm I’d just stop letting people hunt them and let them breed out of control… then “accidentally” cut my fences… let’s them see how much they like not letting people hunt them then. 🤣😂🤣

  32. Did they make the reporter speak into a special 'make my voice sound really annoying' microphone from 0:19 to 0:49 ?

  33. What do you expect from Oklafuckinghoma? The state that made it illegal for non commercial power companies or the average person to have green energy production by way of an annual fine for possession, as they are stealing from the privately owned power companies. And now wanting to make more money from hog hunting on reserves? Heck this is a great way to train people how to hunt hogs, let alone a more controlled environment preventing hunters from getting killed by those same hogs.

  34. 0:58 are you all really surprised ? you better believe that the government WILL have and get their paws into anything thats making money this was only a matter of time . you people that are mad about your government being greedy why don't you get off the internet and do something

  35. So the new rules seem to be focused on getting rid of the hogs, but these people want to preserve them? Seems counterintuitive to the problem at hand…

  36. I don't get it. why are they up in arms? they are hogs just shoot them where you find them, why do you need to transport them?

  37. Gov. mismanagement AGAIN. Well there consistent.
    Collage nerd has probably never been around a hog or farmland. But I read some books with pictures and will tell you farmers how to do it.

  38. Fkn bullshit growing up in my time ranchers would pay or let hunters eliminate these disgusting creatures freely that were tearing up their agricultural…nutrients in the soil or crops ecx…these hogs are good eating and a farmers nightmare smh to the states upholding these bs rules go blow a whistle smh America is being pussified that's the fkn problem that's not american in my book

  39. That is a terrible decision coming from people who do not have common sense and are not hands on to the situation of the rancher and farmer. Disgusting idea. Generating money opportunity. I do not blame the eradicator hunters for quiting.

  40. Short term "cash cow" source of extra revenue, until hunters quit hunting, then feral pig population will explode! Similar thing happening here in Michigan: fees and licenses have become so expensive fewer and fewer people are hunting anymore for deer. Local economies are failing, deer populations are increasing and revenue for DNR has dropped significantly. Good luck Oklahoma!
