That is absolutely true, Nullgeo, although I'm not sure how many folks who use a keyboard for conversation are going to be comfortable going after a pig with traditional means. Pigs are mean! They are wicked swift with those razor tusks. People and dogs get injured and killed via the traditional pig hunting methods, but a lot of folks still do it.

LOL, hotcatz ... very true and I agree ... I thought it worth mentioning not because I would expect the typical new Hawaii resident to take to the knife and pig wrestle ... but if someone is having a pig problem on their property there is likely a reason the pigs have zeroed in on the place ... which means they'll be coming back again and again ... and there are traditional hunters -- quite a few -- who would be happy enough to stake the property out and take the pig for you .... they get to keep the meat, or course. Saves a wild tramp through the jungle tracking pig ... gives the dogs their work (which those pups live for ... we should all love our work the way a pig dog loves to hunt!)

I just moved here about a week ago. I have a Pedersali (Italian made) Remington Rolling Block in 45-70 that should drop a wild pig like a 50 ton sledge hammer. A 400-500 grain bullet doesn't have to travel real fast to do the job.

Does anybody know if wild boars are attracted to and attack avocado trees?

Wild pigs are attracted to any food on the ground, avocados included. Never heard of them attacking a tree, but they can root up a whole garden in minutes.

They also like to eat the pith in the middle of a hãpu'u (tree fern) trunk, and will sometimes knock them over to get at it, but hãpu'u knock over easily.

Can't shoot that on private property; especially in a residential area.

If you can't shoot on private property where can you shoot? That makes no sense.

Of course you can not shoot in a residential area. Not only is that common sense but also a law in most places unless it is in self defense.

From the DLNR's site:

Quote:
Hunting on Private Land Game mammals may be hunted year-round on private land. Hunters must possess a valid State of Hawaii hunting license and have the permission of the landowner. Hunting fees, permitted hunting weapons and methods and other prohibitions and requirements for hunting game mammals on private land are established by the landowner. This is different from game bird hunting, where the State regulates the hunting season and bag limits on both public and private lands. The wearing of blaze orange is not a requirement on private lands unless the landowner deems it to be one.
Hunting rules are posted on the site for private and public lands.

Where we live in a very rural area, there's no one to tell you that you can't shoot a wild pig on your property. My neighbor, who backs up to 500 undeveloped acres, shot the whole pig family that was eating her produce and destroying all of her flowers. Gave the meat to a local hunter, who put it all to good use.
