Lots of landowners want to have their cake and eat it too: they want fewer hogs but they want to make bank selling hunters access to the hogs....so they charge hunters $$$ for each one instead of telling them "come on out for $50, stay in the bunkhouse, and I want you to kill every single hog you see..." They like their money more than they want the hogs gone, and hunters don't really want the object of their fun extirpated, so the clusterf*ck continues until some other mechanism steps in which can effectively eradicate them. As the prairie dog, the wolf, and ground squirrels have proven, poison and disease are the only mechanisms that work effectively.

Along with hundreds of other shooters, for years we each shot thousands of rounds every year at prairie dogs in north central Montana, and every year they bounced back until the landowners got tired of them and used poison. Every time the dogs disappeared, it was due to poison or plague, never due to shooting. Same thing with gophers/ground squirrels in our local area: you could shoot them all spring and summer every year and never quite get rid of them....until disease or a landowner's poison wiped them out. Wolves weren't wiped out with gunfire, they were trapped and then had to be finished off with poison. Coyotes thrive despite massive "control measures" including shooting, trapping, and poisoning.

You can use shooting to wipe out species that reproduce relatively slowly such as bison, bears, cougar, sea otter, and the like, but even then it takes a prolonged, focused, horrendous campaign to bring their numbers tumbling down. Species that bear many young every year like coyotes and wolves, or even several litters of young per year like swine, will replace their losses from sport shooting until poison and/or disease annihilates them in huge swathes. The industrial market hunting of the 1800s is a thing of the past, and regulated sport hunters don't provide the firepower necessary to eliminate entire populations of fecund species.

Watch how many pigs these shooters let escape despite them using high tech optics and high capacity semi auto rifles.

Leave it to the politicians and bureaucrats to come up with a immensely stupid idea.

Gone boar hunting in Georgia and Alabama. Didn't eat them, but sold them to a meat processor, probably for dog food. Paid for the trip at least.
