Legal game populations are effectively managed in most states by hunters during a specific, annual hunting season with a daily or annual bag limit. But wild pigs are not game animals. They are considered an invasive, non-game species in most states with no closed hunting season and no bag limit. Yet, annual statistics confirm traditional hunting and trapping methods fail to effectively control wild pig populations. This means hunters may harvest an unlimited number of wild pigs 365 days per year but are either unwilling or incapable of controlling feral swine populations.
Sport Hunting vs. Pest Control
Sport hunting is the practice of pursuing a game species for food or recreation using fair chase principles and methods. As conservationists, hunters are taught it is unethical to harvest juveniles (deer fawns, elk calves, bear cubs, etc.) since they are game animals. However, traditional hunting approaches used to manage game animals producing only one or two offspring per year and will NOT control an invasive species producing 12-20 piglets annually.
The JAGER PRO™ mission is the total elimination of an invasive, non-game species as a means of agricultural pest control and disease prevention using any legal means necessary. Farmers have the same right to protect their crops from corn rootworms, soybean aphids and feral swine as a homeowner’s right to protect their house from termites, rats and cockroaches. Insect versus mammal makes no difference to the legal definition of a pest.
