That was the teaser video for the Wedding Retreat weekend we were going to have some years ago, wasn't it?

You could always dig a large deep pit. Bait them in the Pit then cover up with dirt and re-sod.

It's in a community where busting a cap in the pigs azz might not be legal. They have like hog poison or something? Tannerite isn't an option either.

Get pet alligators, bobcats or mountain lions. Maybe a cross bow.

Ive heard a single strand electric fence can keep them out. Never tried it though.
And Alabama just rewrote the law to make it even easier to prosecute. It use to be they had to witness you trap them and them transport them. Because it was legal to posses feral hogs you merely had to say the hogs were yours and not admit to where you got them. That won't fly now they have rewritten the law.

I don't think the newer clay pigeons are poisonous to hogs. Maybe find some older ones or check online for some that are.

Call USDA Wildlife Services. They have feral swine specialists in every state. The job is feral swine reduction to complete eradication. We can shoot about anywhere and are excellent at getting them gone. Most states have a small cost recovery or cost share deal for feral swine. Maybe $50 an hour.

Yes, but they’re Yeti straws so all is good.

OP, those pigs don’t materialize on your property. They come from somewhere else like common property, so here’s your one chance to make it an HOA problem... and I’m an HOA secretary but that’s what I would do ‘cause the dumbasses like me that are on the board are dumb enough to tackle the problem. Good luck!

Drop off one of these in the back yard, pop open an ice cold beer, sit back and watch the fun begin. Don't forget to video it for us !

Is there a way to "annoy" them without running afoul of some law? Shoot them with BBs or something else relatively silent that stings but bounces off them? They're supposed to be smart animals, right? Figure out something they don't like and they may decide they'd rather rip up someone else's lawn where an unpleasant experience does not occur. It doesn't seem like you need a long term solution to get the place sold.
