I am in North east Arkansas. they are in the lower part of our county pretty bad, several people hunt them several times aweek, I asked some of them about raising the young they said due to diseases they may have and they dont gain weight as a domestic pig could. I have heard of people shooting or trapping and eating them BBQ style and they said they were good , one said they weren't. I talked with game wardens and they said get rid of them any way I could except for spot lighting. They are meat eaters and will kill calves, and their own for a meal. Often the hunters will shoot one and leave him lie and wait till the rest come to feed.
