PSA for hog hunters

kansashunterkansashunter Senior MemberPosts: 1,859 Senior Member
I was listening to a farm show today and they were discussing feral swine and the diseases they carry. One big one is leptospirosis but what I didn't know is humans can catch that also. In cattle the main concern is abortions so if you have a wife that hunts with you it would be wise to check this out. They didn't spend much time on the human part , mostly talked about cattle.

    I have killed a few pigs. I have never worn “protection”. 

    I ain’t dead yet.

    Hell, with as bad as the fleas are with some of the pigs I kill...........I strip down to my skivvies to clean them and then spray off with the water  hose to remove the fleas. 

    Literally. I clean them in my underwear. The fleas can be so bad.

    It’s amazing how bad they can be in one place and not in another. 

    6 miles from my house, I strip to clean the pigs the fleas are so bad. 

    40 miles from my house, not a single flea on them. 

    75 miles from my house, I won’t even touch the pigs after i shoot them. The fleas are that bad. 

    Go figure.

    You SHOULD notice an inverse relationship between fire ant concentration and flea concentration.  Fire ants eat fleas and ticks- it's probably the ONLY good thing about the damn things.

    Zee. this is quite literally the meaning of the phrase "too much information."

    Suggest you try one of those topical monthly flea and tick treatments. Something like this should do it:

    Zee, I was not worried about you or any other male or non pregnant female. Who I wouldn't want to expose is someone pregnant. You can do whatever you like. I have never seen fleas on a pig, must be some Texas thing. Now lice is another matter.

    Out of an abundance of caution, I just tossed the cat into the shower.

    Good times.

    That’s not how you do it!  You drop a cup of Lysol into the toilet bowl followed by the cat.  Close the lid and after 2-3 minutes of the cat trashing around you flush 3 times.  Clean cat!!!

    I hope you guys are happy.  My cat was happily perched on my shoulder when I opened this thread.  Now she's hiding under the bed.  Lord knows what it will take to get her out of there.
