A Feral Hog Workshop will be held on Tuesday, August 24, 2010 at the 4-H Building, 12132 Leslie Road, in Helotes. The workshop will provide landowners and land managers an opportunity to learn more about feral hogs, including their population dynamics, regulations and laws for hunting feral swine, agricultural regulations, controlling feral hogs, trapping, transportation and holding facilities and diseases.Attendees who complete the workshop will receive three hours of continuing education units (CEUs) which include two hours general, and one hour laws and regulations. Texas is home to more than 2 million feral hogs, the largest feral hog population in the United States and their numbers continue to increase due to high reproductive potential and the lack of natural predators.
