Wildlife. Rapid Sounder Removal results from Russell County, Alabama project

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!


ABSTRACT: In February 2016, two members of the Russell County, Alabama Soil & Water Conservation Committee requested feral pig and whitetail deer crop depredation preventative maintenance on approximately 3,000 acres of property. A single Hog Control Operator was hired to remove the total wild pig population and remove 50 whitetail deer on a nuisance permit issued by the AL Department of Conservation.

Rapid Sounder Removal is a time sensitive strategy where emphasis is placed on efficient removal of every sounder expanding at least 2,500 acres (four square miles) within 30 days of operation. The mission is to quickly and efficiently remove 100% of each individual sounder, on multiple properties, in the shortest time possible. Several Integrated Wild Pig Control strategies can be implemented in unison to eliminate wild pig escapes, education and reproduction from large tracts of land at one time. This concept can be applied by all adjacent landowners to remove entire feral pig populations from a county, water conservation district or wildlife management area.

This presentation will provide final detailed results (capture percentages, camera to kill ratios, etc.) and photo/video documentation of the intel gathering strategies and control sequences used to eliminate 266 wild pigs in 15 events and 50 whitetail deer in six nights within the target area.
