I never really understood that. I agree that hunting isn't about brutality, but this method of hunting is tough and hard to accomplish. If you swarm the pig with dogs, then I agree with you. With only one or two, it is really a challenge. Didn't mean to stir things up.

and I also have the task of exterminating rabbits in the garden. Those little things can eat a lot!

Nothing was stirred up by your comment so no worries. The reason why lot of people consider it as brutality and such is because the dogs are the ones doing the actual hunting and the humans follow, help hold down the pig and stab it. I really don't have any opinion about it, I just wouldn't involve in it myself.

I think that would be awesome to pig hunt with dogs. I hunt coons with dogs so why not pigs? I dont understand how people think it is brutal. If anything, it is brutal on the dogs and hunters.

The brutal part comes in when the dogs are holding down the defenseless pig and you go and stab it too death.

My neighbor does this sort of hunting and he told me stories about it. It sounds fun and it would really get your adrenaline going but I think im just gonna stick to the good ol' bow and arrow to hunt pigs. It works just as good.

I don't see how the pig is really defenseless though. Thats the part that gets me, I've seen plenty of hogs cut not only my dogs but other peoples dogs to shreds and then just walk off like it wasn't anything. The part the people see as brutality is that a dog is holding down the pig, what people don't realize is that an 80 lb dog is hardly a match for a 250 lb pig. The whole time that the dog is latched onto the pig the pig is still very mobile and very lethal, I've seen several people get there legs gashed open when going in to stab or tie the pig even with the dog holding on to it.

I think it’s the ethnics behind the matter. People who are anti-hunting or whatever try to claim 'hunters' as blood thirsty cold blooded killers will show pig hunting with knife, stabbing it , etc as propaganda to their cause and their believe. Only reason why I said is because the other day, there was some sort of PETA people downtown (heard it on the news) and drawings of hunters stabbing a pig so I know it is in fact of on their attempts and they are in fact using it as fuel to their cause. Now, I’m not saying we shouldn’t do or talk about it. It is more of FYI on that matter. As I mentioned in previous post, I have no opinion about it but I just certainly wouldn’t do it.
