Arkansas had it where I could shoot them during any hunting season till this past fall they decided it was only going to happen during a big game gun hunting season....aka gun deer season , WTH I kill everyone I run across regardless if season for anything or not dead hog is a good hog and where I hunt if you shoot it and it runs it runs down hill and I don't care anything about going and getting them .....coyotes have to eat too

OK.

I will be away for the next two weeks running electrical wire a half mile to the two acre food plot to surround it with electric fence wire.  I will let you know when I am back  :)

Or a regular car battery. I run a fence around my garden. Battery goes bad,I just go "trade" it in for another one. As long as they have a battery to send back,that's all they care about. BUT I do turn it off during the day.

WDH, for the past 15 years I put up an electric fence around my 1/2 acre of sweet corn, three wires; powered by a small 6 volt battery like the ones in a lawn tractor;
it has kept out the black bear, deer, coons & woods hogs(porkypine); still works real well, changed the battery once about 5 years ago.

He's doing better with that bolt than most can do with a semi.

Speaking about hogs, I watched a show a couple weeks ago where Ted Nugent had a full auto MG mounted on a chopper and was flying around trying to shoot hogs. He missed every one using I'd guess 1000 rds trying.

The guy shooting out the other door had a semi M-4 with a quick scope, he was hitting pretty much 1 for 1.
