I didn't say there was no agriculture, it's just not the biggest business in Alabama. In the top five biggest industries in Alabama, forestry is #4 and all of that timber company land is a haven for hogs.

Seems to apply to a heck of a lot. Also leads to letting a lot of issues get a lot bigger than they have to. Something like this is much easier to control when the problem is small rather than it waiting until it gets big enough to actually directly affect enough people that they want something done about it, at which point it's much much harder to deal with.

People know that hogs=bad, they don't need a spokesperson to tell anyone that. It's about people giving a crap about something that doesn't affect them directly. The top five industries in Alabama right now are automotive, chemicals, technology, forestry, and aeronautics, in that order. That's where the money is and feral hogs don't really impact those industries. If Alabama really took the hog problem seriously, they would have more than two people working to control them in the whole state. Two people couldn't control the hog population in Crenshaw county much less the whole state.

I have a friend that is a possum police, he and I agree the current laws on hogs are plain STUPID.
Until reduced to hunter's possession, they're giving the same protections as "game animals"
He and I agree, if the state was SERIOUS about wanting to control them, between the end of deer season, and the beginning of the next deer season, all bets are off. Open up spotlighting, baiting etc, everything that the landowner's predation permit allows, that hunting clubs and such that lease their land CAN'T obtain.
Then hunters MIGHT be able to at least make a dent in the growing numbers.
