Certain areas of Texas are crawling with hogs, which is a problem for most, but is a great thing for us hunters.
Bobcat Hunting Information
Like many large predators, bobcats were persecuted as vermin for decades. Massachusetts placed the first bounty on bobcats in 1727, and as late as 1973, bobcat bounties were still paid throughout Maine, Minnesota, Missouri, New Hampshire, Vermont and Utah. Predator-control programs focused on its eradication. Few people consider them varmints any more, and they are well-managed, valued game animals.
