2016 4-H Southern Swine Feral Hog Challenge Slated for Sept. 23-24

Post Date:09/15/2016 9:01 AM

Hog ChallengeThe UF/IFAS St. Lucie County Extension’s 2016 4-H Southern Swine Feral Hog Challenge will be conducted Sept. 23-24 at the St. Lucie County Fairgrounds and Equestrian Center.  Hunters interested in participating in this challenge can find information, rules and team registration online at http://www.southernswines.org.

Feral hogs are now found in every county in Florida and in at least 35 states and Canadian provinces.  Southeast Florida’s feral hog population is second only to Texas and is estimated to have more than 500,000 wild hogs in a relatively stable population.  Feral hogs can cause damage by rubbing or tusking small trees and by rooting up native vegetation. This program will encourage feral hog hunters to compete for top prizes while removing invasive feral hogs from the environment.

  • 2013 Innovative Program Award from the Association of Natural Resource Extension Professionals
