As is the case in many areas across Texas, feral hog numbers appear to be on the rise in the Plum Creek Watershed. To prevent negative impacts to agriculture and water quality, an integrated management approach of multiple techniques often yields the best potential for success. Large corral traps have proven extremely effective for reducing hog numbers quickly and should be considered in most management efforts. Feral hogs typically travel in large family groups called sounders, and a large corral type trap can be effective in capturing the entire group.
