And hunting these pesky critters is becoming a favorite sport for many locals.  A perfect companion book for any of these hunters or just those curious about wild hogs, is Year of the Pig. Written by Mark Hainds, who was a forest researcher who became interested in wild pig hunting to conserve the pine woods of Alabama where he is based. Many interesting stories and close encounters with the fearsome hogs fill this book.  There is also a fair amount of history and conservation research in this adventure read!
