VIDEO: Thermal Hog Hunt Drops 60 Pigs

Sixty boar taken in full darkness!

While popping 60 hogs in total darkness may sound like taking out a lot of animals let me assure's not.

Texas is overrun with the vermin.

So much in fact that boar can be hunted in almost in manner with no limit.

Even in total darkness.

Just like the shooters at Ultimate Night Vision have taken full advantage of!


A farmer in Central Texas continues the good fight against destructive feral hogs. Armed with a Sig 716 AR-10 and an Armasight Zeus Pro 640 50mm thermal scope he takes down massive numbers of hogs, but the fight is far from over.

This video shows footage of thermal imaging technology being utilized for the purpose of feral hog eradication.

Feral swine are a non-native and invasive species in Texas. Each year hogs cause millions of dollars in damage in the form of damaged crops, contaminated water supplies, broken equipment, transmission of disease and injury to livestock.

Feral hogs compete with native wildlife for resources and also prey directly on the eggs and young of ground nesting birds and will actively hunt small mammals, frogs, lizards and snakes.

Due to their intelligence, adaptability, and prolific breeding habits, traditional methods of hunting and trapping have been largely ineffective in reducing the feral hog population. The introduction of night vision and thermal optics has greatly increased landowners' ability to mitigate the destruction caused by feral hogs.

Feral swine are not considered game animals in Texas and may be hunted by any means or methods at any time of year.
