    Glad the property owners where I hunt are the same... they want the pigs gone.

    I did not do an extensive search, but this is the first "hit" I came across:

    A female can have her first litter at 7-months old and she can have around 12 to a litter. Fifty percent of those would normally be female and these hogs can have up to three litters a year.

    Another hit said they average 1.5 litters per year with an average of 6 piglets per litter (that seems more reasonable to me).

    In our experience here in NW Florida, if the trapper/property owner is good at trapping (before they hogs get trap shy), the population is reduced enough that it can be difficult to successfully hunt (few hogs) for a year or so before the hogs have multiplied enough for good hunting. In 2018 hogs were successfully trapped multiple times (last batch Dec 2018), but by the summer of 2019, we were asked to come out, as they'd gotten trap shy and multiplied. In all of 2019, hogs would not enter the two traps.

    So, anyway you look at it, they can increase pretty rapidly.

    Here, my thought was find something that sterlises the pigs, this takes it to the next step, dead pigs. A product called hoggone.
