Plan the Mission
The I.C.E.™ Cam photo shows the month is August and the overnight temperature is 63°F. We have established Sawtooth Acorns as the food source. Sounder Intel verifies two adults and five juveniles for a total of seven. We have determined one trained and certified Hog Control Operator™ will employ the shooting process using .308 Thermal-Scoped Rifles. Our performance standard is 100% success which means we must remove all seven pigs expending the least amount of fuel, time, labor and money.
Harvest Efficiency Report
Report column totals for Episode 21 verify six adults, eleven juveniles and eight fetuses were removed from Sawtooth. Twenty-five pigs were impacted in six events, expending 10.75 hours of labor, which equated to almost 26 minutes of labor per pig.

We removed seven of seven targeted pigs for a 100% removal success rate. Therefore, we accomplished our performance goals, using a trained and certified Hog Control Operator™, by shooting during fall months using our thermal scoped rifle. The total number of pigs impacted during this mission was seven.
Return on Labor
Our total shooting labor was 10.75 hours. Shooting labor per pig was 25.80 minutes. We arrive at this number by multiplying 10.75 hours times 60 minutes which equals 645 minutes. Divide this number by 25 pigs trapped to equal 25.80 minutes of labor per pig.
First, we extract our shooting data from the Harvest Efficiency Report. This episode, the annual damage prevented by shooting was $10,000, divided by 10.75 hours gives us a return on labor of $930.23 per hour.
