I live on the Red River in Texas. There is a lake on this property. Archery is the only means of taking deer or hog in this area. I have 2 80lb dogs who’s main mission in life is driving off critters like hogs, armadillos, deer, coyotes, mountain lions and skunks. I give the critters all (1,750) except the 10 acres around my cabin. Now there are commercial hunts using helicopters.
No way will man ever catch up. Just too many and they breed very quickly.
