Hunters are required to purchase a $75 permit in order to legally hunt these hogs. Plus, if you employ a hunting service, that is an additional cost. If the problem is so great, why not offer a bounty for killed hogs? They do it for pythons. Just another bureaucracy not thinking clearly!
"Just another bureaucracy not thinking clearly" Do you expect otherwise?

My friend, who bought in January 2018, was an early resident of Fenney. She said seeing feral hog packs wandering around was not uncommon at that time.

What about the laws in Florida governing hog hunting on non-privately - owned (state, federal) lands? I've been under the impression that hunting feral hogs on those lands is not only permitted, but encouraged.

I've been looking into hog hunting. No charge for hunting license. I've never seen a charge for a permit. WMA's require a permit to manage the number of hunters in the field at a time. The random WMA's I researched don't charge for the permit. I'm going to look into this further, as I plan on harvesting some fresh pork!

Here in FL, alligator hunting used to be very profitable. Now the state is becoming overrun with gators because they approved so many gator farms; rendering the hunting for alligator meat and skins much less worthwhile.

My home is located near the 6th hole of the Churchill Green Golf Course, and a couple of years ago, feral hogs did $2,400 damage to my lawn. A portion of the Churchill Green Golf Course borders on farmland. At that time, I did research on the hunting of feral pigs in Florida. On private property, they can be hunted at any time, and no license is required. For example, a farmer can kill a feral hog on his land at any time. On state-owned land, there is a specific season when they can be hunted.

First, in Florida 65 and older Floridians do not need a hunting license. Your driver’s license is your hunting license if you are a Florida resident. Second, these hogs are an invasive species. They will tear up lawns, physically threaten people and animals. They can be very aggressive. They defecate in streams and have been responsible for E. coli outbreaks due to contaminated produce. They breed quickly. There is no good reason to keep them alive. They are not cute! In our home state of Texas we have open season all year round. They are even hunted from helicopters. Texas homeowners are begging for hunters to take out packs in their neighborhood since they are so destructive. Unlike deer the meat can be harvested, but it must be done quickly on site. Meat can be donated in Texas.
