Here is an article on how to butcher them. How to Break Down a Wild Pig | Realtree
I do hear local farmers shooting at something once in a while with what sounds like a rifle. And at times like a shotgun. Maybe one less coyote to worry about.

I wouldn't be digging to deep, sinkholes around.

You mean “ground depressions!”

Ok, this is probably a pretty stupid idea, but ....
I read that wild pigs are pretty smart. So, lay out mouse traps around the yard at night so when they get close they snap shut and startle them. If it snaps over their foot (hoof?) it probably would sting a bit and maybe make them head to greener pastures? Or annoy the heck out of the neighbors and lie in wait for them at night and throw firecrackers at them like you do to make sure geese don’t nest in your back yard.

Course, you can also hire a trapper: http://animaltrappersinorlando.com/hog/

???

Just some ideas.

There must be grubs or some other critter under the grass, get rid of the food source and you get rid of the pigs

Usually about once a year someone will post about wild pigs digging in their backyard off Heron Executive or Cane Garden Golf Course. I think they like the area south of Lake Miona and within a week you'll heard reports of Florida Panthers in the same area. I played golf with a fellow not long ago who said they saw a Panther run down the middle of the third hole of the Hibiscus nine.

Here's a motion detector photo taken east of Gainesville in the middle of the night. For those who still let their dog out at night without a leash, let this be a lesson for you.

I wondered what happened to my pet panther when he got out.
