The city passed an ordinance making it ILLEGAL to hunt(even with a bow) inside city limits
These ranchers who charge that much money for pig hunts are not killing the pigs because they are doing damage to their property. They are killing them for a profit. Of the farmers who's crops are being damaged, most are happy to let you hunt for free, just to try to rid them of the problem. But, at $15.00 a pig, who can afford to put a dent in the pig numbers. All this inflated fee is going to do is cause more poaching. And in the end, CDFG will end up selling less tags. I will agree, some farmers see the hog population as a cash cow. But, most ranchers, at least in San Benito County, just want them gone, or thinned out. If you can show proof of damaged crops you can get a depedation permit, but you can't get one for damage to pasture land(which is our problem).Originally posted by Rancho Loco@Aug 19 2004, 09:32 AM
I think there's a few folks here who need a reality check.
The price of tags is in NO way preventing landowners from providing FREE access to hunt pigs. It is a bit ironic to hear about all the damage pigs do to private property, yet those landowners have NO problem selling hunting leases to licensed guides who charge $400-$600 a pop to cap a pig.
