    Let me guess, you can disprove it all? Get real.

    There is enough evidence and documented studies on the subject to bury your preconceived bias.

    Trapping them en masse may be the best way to eradicate them, dunno. I don't see how culling a few young'uns for bacon could hurt.

    Better to cull the females. The meat is better and the impact on overall population is much higher. Convincing those who are adhering to "science" will be difficult. Much like the "science" of climate change,closed minds that are slammed shut and locked in are impossible to deal with.

    Does that mean:
    1. makes the problem worse. (changes behaviour making them harder to trap, harder to locate, more likely to breed, more likely to do crop damage)
    2. makes no difference (perhaps they learn too quickly)
    3. could be part of the solution, but not all or even most of the solution. Every bit helps

    ?
    Short answer, yes.

    Tell me about all the hogs you guys have worked with, that wildly reproduce during the winter.... aside from bureaucrats.
    How many Eurasian wild boar running around loose in the swamps have you worked with compared to the experts who've studied them in other jurisdictions and developed workable counter measures that don't include assorted yahoos roaming through the bush at night with suppressors and NVG?

    No matter how many you kill there will always be more.
