I saw a JK in a salvage yard here once, but there was a note on it not to take parts. It was being sold with a salvage title.

Never saw any other Wranglers locally, but where I lived in Florida there were at least a dozen in every salvage yard. Nothing but mud and sand over there, so big trucks, motors and mudders were more popular. You could probably go into a Florida yard and buy everything you needed to build a whole Wrangler.

Not so much the shop. It wasn't a shop policy. It was the man. If he goes to another shop, I'll give that shop my business.

Not sure why that Wrangler this morning needed to be towed. It really didn't look that bad. From what I saw, he rear ended the guy in front of him. I didn't see any fluids.

Damn. The nine we took in two days didn't even put a dent in the Texas hog population. Artillery may be needed.

Dang that is crazy. He should try baiting them with corn and get a bunch of guys unloading on the huge groups. That is the craziest thing I've seen in a while.

They do bait them, but even that can only take so many at a time. They've tried traps and pens. They got smart to the traps fast. The pens work, but they have to use huge pens. Bigger every time because they learn to avoid the fences. They allow small hunting groups onto the property and let them get as many as they want and that helps short term, but in the meantime it pushes them onto neighbors land and makes it worse for someone else.

Early last year, they had an open season week that took over 100, but that only helped for a few months.

Or set up a temp fence yard and bait them into it, and trap them. Then you have bacon for months!

The difference between stupidity and ignorance. Ignorance is doing something wrong and not knowing better. Stupidity is knowing better, but doing it anyway. Don't be stupid!

Nevermind, was typing when Ysb was! That's crazy how fast they multiply. I saw something on tv about them a couple years back. They are huge, mean and a huge problem in the thousands!

That's kind of what they've been doing. Setting up long fence lines that funnel them into valleys. When enough are over the hill, they close off the fence and shoot what they can. Most of the hogs are given to a local meat processor.

There's really nothing they can do, but try to maintain the population. There's a company in Arizona that is attempting to introduce sterilized hogs into the wild population. If that works, they might buy a few dozen from them.

Nuts how fast they reproduce.

Yeah, they just did last Sept. Sounds like fun, but it has to be expensive. They won't be allowing helicopter hunts on their property. Novel idea, but they don't want tourists shooting wildly, scaring all the other animals.

Hunting of hogs doesn't require a license either. No tags. All you need is land owners permission.

Just in case any of you are real men, it might be your lucky day.

If I had the time I would go down and help reduce the population. It would be a blast.(pun intended)
