Purely Insane Feral Hog Hunting Footage…They Take 70 Hogs Down In One Night
This feral hog hunting footage is truly insane…the amount of feral hogs these guys take-down in one night, has to be one for the record books. Over the last couple years, a man named Ray Shinpaugh, has been perfecting the art of feral hog eradication using a side-by-side, thermal monocular shotgun and laser, to eliminate feral hogs with incredible and deadly efficiency.
In the video below, with darkness as cover, we see Ray and his hunting partner use thermal optics to locate a large group of feral hogs. With the lights off, they position themselves between the pigs and any nearby cover. Once in position, they flip on the lights and drive the pigs further out in the open where they can close in on the hogs and open fire with 00 buck shot. Each year feral hogs cause millions of dollars in damage in the form of damaged crops, contaminated water supplies, broken equipment, transmission of disease and injury to livestock.
Due to their intelligence, adaptability, and prolific breeding habits, traditional methods of hunting and trapping have been largely ineffective in reducing the feral hog population. Since feral hogs are not considered game animals in Texas, they may be hunted by any means, or methods, at any time of the year.
