Saskatchewan is known for its monster deer and hunters head there every year for what is, to some, a lifetime hunting trip.
Did you know feral hogs are becoming a problem in the Canadian province, though? Neither did we. Apparently they’re a growing concern and Canadian officials hope to get on the front side of management for the nuisance beasts before they get out of hand.
We ran across this story about the problem feral hogs are becoming in Saskatchewan. Apparently, it’s bad. Not a surprise that they can live that far north, either. The dang things are pretty hardy.
“If we don’t take some very serious action over the next two years, then we’re very quickly going to be moving into a position where we’re simply trying to manage and live with wild boar, rather than eradicate them,” Ryan Brook, a University of Saskatchewan researcher, said in the story.
More states are increasing efforts to manage feral hogs. Deer managers know they can root up a food plot and be destructive to the habitat. We hope the Canadian folks get some solid footing in front of these critters before it’s too late.

As with other cities that have experienced growth and whitetail deer adapting to human intrusion, South Charleston’s city council is faced with a deer-human population problem.
So the council is considering urban deer hunting as a possible means of management.
According to the Charleston Daily Mail, the council formed a committee to take a look at it. They are looking at numbers – people and animals – problem areas, other cities that have used urban hunting, and are in the first steps.
Of course, some folks believe the deer are nuisances after they repeatedly come into yards and eat flowers, shrubs or manicured lawns. Others are animal lovers who want the deer prancing around with flowers in their ears and everyone else should leave them alone.
West Virginia is a deer hunting state with a long outdoors history. South Charleston’s council is facing what many other cities have faced.
