HOG Hunting: Good or Bad?

Is it a necessary thing or a sport. You got farmers crops being destroy and then you got your hunters who do this for sport only.
I got mix feeling about this, I would like to go along to watch, maybe because I would love to see these dogs do what they were originally bred for before being used as fighters. I don't know maybe I'm being selfish. Then there's the humane side to this also, I wouldn't never use any dog I owned for that, Gamed or not. I seen video of dogs getting mauled by Hogs its not pretty. there's also the Hog side of the story too, is it really their fault?

It's a sport. Yes there is an overpopulation of wild hogs all over the country and I don't know how they can really control it as there aren't enough hunters to thin out such large populations. It's a tough one I think but nature is not fair many times and this happens.
The bad thing about overpopulation is that the weaker don't survive because there is not enough food many times to feed them all and hunting actually becomes a good thing in that case. That is what we were taught when I took the Hunter Safety Course here many years ago.

it's both. ....you can't have one without the other, i mean, i was born into hunting, i'm courntry, we hunted for our food thru the winter, same as we slaughterd hogs and steers for winter months. we always used the duck, hog, coon, squirrel or whatever it was we killed. (my fav...deer!!) but in the same aspect you have the sport of the 'hunt' ..it's fun, the tracking, watching for prints, sitting in silence trying to not be noticed, i tell ya city ppl would really be suprised how smart wild animals really are. . i believe there should be a balance for everything, if things have worked this way for thousands of years why change it? if hunting isn't your cup of tea then just keep on a walking ya know? i dont understand why ppl bash it(not saying anyone here did) , just b/c they dont understand that is how ppl in this part of the country has lived all their life. they survive off the land. and in turn they take care of the land and the natural order of things.
but i think hunting just for the sake of saying 'hey look at this huge thing i got' or whatever is totally wrong.

its both, and even those who do it for sport, are still contributing to the necessary thing you speak of. At the end of the hunt and dead hog is still a dead hog. Whether they eat it a throw out the body or stuff it cause thats what they wanted, eaither way they are still helping with population control.

Its a lot deering hunting arguements for and against. Sport or meat hunting, both parties are helping to keep population control down.

Often those in it for sport have been doing it for years and years and now only go for mature animals that have served their purpose already and would die in a year or two anyways of natural causes. There is alot more to hunting than just hunting.

If more people killed what they eat, there would be no hog problem.

I think wild meat tastes nasty but that's just me. I am not a country boy and so I have not acquired a taste for wild game. I have tried deer and caribou and both were nasty if you ask me. I will stick to cows and chickens thank you.

Going after a hog that big with a .357 is just plain stupid.

John Wooters who used to write for Guns and Ammo shot a hog between the eyes at 50 yds with a .45-70 and the hog hit the dirt.
He walked over to see the hog and it started kicking and got up again.
These things are tough as nails to say the least.
