Hays County is continuing countywide feral hog management efforts in 2021 after receiving a $7,500 grant from Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service, Wildlife Services. The Hays County program will include one feral hog workshop and one webinar, aerial control services, a damage assessment and free trapping equipment for a limited number of local participants.
Hays County is an affiliate of the Central Texas Feral Hog Task Force and has partnered with The Meadows Center for Water and the Environment at Texas State University, the Cypress Creek Project, the San Marcos Watershed Initiative and the Plum Creek Watershed Partnership to assist with educational components of the program.
To sign up your land for aerial feral hog abatement, please email us at FeralHog@txstate.edu.
Landowners engaging with the Hays County feral hog program will have the opportunity to participate in an ongoing, remote-operated feral hog trap sharing cooperative. These remote-operated traps will be upgraded in 2021 to enable live video feed sharing through updated 5G technology.
The 2021 Hays County program efforts also include free corral trapping equipment to 2 local participants. To be eligible to receive a free trapping kit, participants must confirm that they own or manage land in Hays County by completing a 2021 Feral Hog Damage and Control Survey (link to PDF and ONLINE survey provided below). Surveys can also be picked up at the Hays County AgriLife Extension Office, 200 Stillwater Road, Wimberley, TX 78676.
We will continue to update this page and our calendar as additional workshops and webinars are scheduled. Stay tuned for updates!
