Texas guided hunting company “Bad Ass Hogs & Dogs,” a long time Night Optics customer recently picked up a shiny new Panther 336 Thermal Riflescope with complementary DVR (digital video recorder) and shot some awesome video during the month of July.
While we have received footage from others before, this series of videos demonstrates the great quality that is captured with the FREE DVR through the Night Optics thermal shooting system.
The third segment in the video also illustrates, in real time, why it is so important that we continue to fight against the scourge that are these rapidly reproducing pests, feral hogs.
How fast do feral hogs reproduce?
“Wild hogs will breed year round, but births peak in spring and fall. Gestation is 114 days, and a sow will give birth to anywhere from 1 to a dozen piglets. She can have 2 litters a year.”
In that scene, an open field is observed by hunters to have at least 50-75 wild pigs tearing up farm land for planted seed.
What do pigs eat in the wild?
Plants “constitute big portions of the feral hog diet. Some of the many plants these wild pigs eat are acorns, forbs, grass, tubers, roots, bulbs and fungi. Acorns are a particular favorite for feral hogs. They also like eating a lot of herbaceous vegetation, including water hyssop (Bacopa monnieri).”
