Fellow sportsmen and gentle readers, Through these fine electronic pages I have finally stumbled upon it. Nobody wants to go down without being remembered for something and I have found my cause celeb as it were Now, you are all aware I am sure about the terrible, feral hog problem we face in Texas. They are like vermin and are everywhere, very destructive and a little dangerous. My plan now is to somehow obtain some African wart hog semen and begin impregnating some of the captured sows and then releasing them. In no time at all I think, Texas will be butt deep in some warty, hairy, smelly wart hog / swine hybrid. Big tusks, bad attitude. It worked with the Russian boar crosses but apparently we just didn't go far enough. The new Texas Wart Hog. It will go down in the annals of history right there with the fire ant, the huisache tree and killer bees. I will be famous if not infamous. What a legacy! Now, all I need is a source for Warthog semen....and I figure that certainly there is some enterprising, off season PH that might help me out on that count. I write this today more out of frustration than entertainment. I just got a call from the ranch and a herd of hogs came through last night and wiped out a garden, destroyed and irrigated hay meadow with their rooting and did about $3,000 damage to some protein feeders in the river pasture. So, instead of beer and bar-b-q at the lake this holiday, guess where I have to be?
