Georgia: CSF to Host Feral Hog Management Discussion and Hunt

On November 2 – 4, the Congressional Sportsmen’s Foundation (CSF) will host a Feral Hog Management Discussion and Hunt in Milledgeville, Georgia.  Classified as a nuisance species in Georgia and not native to the Americas, feral hogs cause significant damage to our natural resources, and State and Federal agencies have struggled with cost-effective management techniques that impede the spread and/or aid in the removal of these animals.  Following a forum discussion on research that shows various management approaches as well as the growing negative impacts feral hogs can have, participants will receive special night vision training from some of America’s Elite Naval Special Forces, after which, they will have the option to participate in a nighttime feral hog hunt with suppressor firearms.  If you would like more information on participation, please contact Jennifer Mecchella at jennifer@sportsmenslink.org or call (321) 759-7523.

Studies conducted at both the state and federal level have found that the number of hunters and trappers have been on a generally declining trend over the past several decades. To increase recruitment, retention, and reactivation (R3) of hunters and trappers, which initiative do you think would have the greatest impact?
