From a hunter,

I'm not a member of the forum but I know many Vandenberg AFB hunters are. Please blast out to your membership that the Air Force has hired the USDA to eradicate all wild pigs from the base. This is in progress now. Unfortunately the base has not been forthcoming with this information and continues to promote pig hunting and selling hunting permits. I'm sure your members will be as furious about this as I am. If you need verification before posting please contact Wayne Moses at VAFB Conservation office.

Also the VAFB rod and gun club's walk in cooler is down and likely not to be up before the end of deer season.

This is not true. The only hogs that are being taken are the ones that have a tracking collar and any hogs that were together with the collared hog.

The wildlife biologist wanted some data on the range the hogs traveled in the area. Only 5 hogs were trapped and collared. There was interesting and helpful results. One traveled about 20 miles from where it was trapped and came back. Most go off base during the day and feed at night on base.

I saw a few adults and a mess of piglets in the still-green dry river bottom west of Coalinga last week... sighted them on private land, but they obviously move around a lot. Their sign is clear on some of the public land nearby; I see very fresh scat on every trip, but the moon has been the worst for rise and set and phase for the last couple weeks. Back again for me this weekend for another 5-10 mile scouting hike trying to figure out their MO.

What did you find Deluded? I'm interested in the Coalinga area myself.

More of the same that trip. My bow has been down since then... ordered some new strings from a well-know company that ended up being too long. Fought trying to tune them for over two weeks before I gave up and sent them and my originals back; so now I am waiting for them to be remade. Learned my lesson, I'll only buy OEM strings from now on. On a high note though, all this rain should get the pigs back up in the hills. I'm excited to get it back together as I just ordered 12x50 Meostars and a Slik carbon tripod, too.
