Pineywoods Wild Hog Supper in Sabine County

May 7, 2021 - Hog Problems? We Have Solutions…Come see the latest greatest hog trapping tools and technology at the Pineywoods Wild Hog Supper on Tuesday, May 18 in Sabine County.

The Pineywoods Wild Hog Supper will be held on Tuesday, May 18, 2021 at the Lost Frontier RV Park and Marina Pavilion on Toledo Bend, one mile west of the Pendleton Bridge on TX Highway 21, at 360 Frontier Drive, Hemphill, TX 75948.

The latest, greatest hog trapping and hunting systems will be on display, with demonstrations beginning at 4:00 pm and continuing until 8:00 pm. The list of exhibitors is growing daily, but already includes BoarBuster, Jager Pro, Pig Brig, and HogEye, the “BIG 4” in the Wild Hog Control Systems industry worldwide, and also includes local and regional manufacturers such as Hogg Boss.

The Wild Hog Supper will be served at 6:00 p.m., with traps and equipment remaining on display for closer inspection until 8:00 p.m. During the meal a program concerning Integrated Wild Hog Management will be presented by Rod Pinkston of Jager Pro Hog Control Systems.

JAGER PRO® was founded in 2006, and is headquartered in Fortson, Georgia. JAGER PRO® consists of ten retired Soldiers with over 220 years of combined military training and experience. They were the first private company to develop military-grade technology and methods to harvest 300,000 feral swine annually. Rod Pinkston (as seen on RFDTV’s weekly show), the Founder and CEO, will be on hand to demonstrate and show their products.

PIG BRIG’S patent-pending net trap is lightweight, fast to set-up, and easy on your budget. Pig Brig Trap Systems are multi-catch and don't need cellphone service. Dr. Tony DeNicola, who co-founded White Buffalo, Inc. in Moodus, Connecticut in 1996, the developer of Pig Brig, will be demonstrating his net trap, an exciting new entry into the war against feral hogs.

BOARBUSTER™ was developed by the Noble Research Institute in Ardmore, Oklahoma, and is now owned by W-W Livestock Systems. Scientific research conducted over a four-year period by The Noble Research Institute demonstrated that the BoarBuster™ feral hog trapping system captures 88% of the animals in a given area, effectively reducing the overall population. Suspended traps limit trap-shy behavior associated with traditional corral traps. Local distributor Lynn Griffith will be presenting the BoarBuster™.

HOGEYE Trap Camera, is a live-video camera that can be added to any hog trap. When hogs enter a trap, the landowner get a notification from the HogEye mobile app. Live-video allows the landowner to see the hogs in the trap before triggering (from anywhere and at any time) the gate to drop. This helps landowners catch the entire sounder, not just a few hogs. Russell Singleton of Wildlife Dominion of Crawford, Mississippi will be conducting demonstrations.

HOGG BOSS gates are promoted by the maker as the most cost effective cellular controlled hog trapping system on the market. The Hogg Boss gate includes a cellular control unit, long range antenna, and solar panel. The Hogg Boss, made in Bastrop, Louisiana, will be demonstrated by Brent Walker, a local distributor of Hogg Boss in Many, LA.

Several presenters will also be on site with their night vision and thermal scopes and optics to allow attendees to see the latest technology available in controlling populations. These hunters may include Carl Beall, Jr., Clayton Bennefield, Kayland Cramer, Bobby Fiscus, Stephen Hays, Marcus Key, Whit Michalec and others as they are confirmed.

The Wild Hog Supper, sponsored by Fairmount Lumber & Hardware and Fairmount General Store, will close out Sabine County’s Operation Pork Chop 2020 by providing a big meal and interesting program for participants, sponsors and anyone interested in wild hog control efforts.

Plans for the evening include a meal of sausage, ham, pork loin and ribs processed from wild hogs captured in Sabine County, demonstrations of cutting edge trapping and hunting tools, presentation by Rod Pinkston on Integrated Wild Hog Management, announcement of Sabine County’s Champion Hog Hunters/Trappers, recognition of Operation Pork Chop 2021 participants and sponsors, an overview of results of the 2021 program, and presentation of over $2,400 in prizes, remaining from over $6,900 in cash and prizes donated by locally-owned Sabine County businesses, farmers and landowners, to be awarded to the overall top hog hunters and trappers.

Attendees are encouraged to bring a lawn chair. Picnic tables will be provided for the meal.

Admission is free to participants, sponsors, contributors and anyone interested in wild hog control. For more information or to request special accommodations call Ronald Barlow, Sabine County’s Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Agent at 409-594-7400.
