    Counties throughout Texas are fighting their costly feral hog problems one tail at a time.

    Out on the edge of Luling, in a town known for its oil and barbecue, the hogs are building a reputation of their own.

    "It's hard on our equipment, it's hard on our crops, it's hard on the rancher," Bonnie Dredla said.

    That rancher is Dredla's husband. The problem: Feral hogs, and lots of them.

    Statewide, agriculture officials blame the wild pigs for almost $600 million worth of damage. Last year, the legislature approved hunting hogs from helicopters. This year, they want their tails.

    This October kicked off the third year of the Hog Out County Grant Program. Hunters in participating counties get $2 for every tail turned in. The county with the most wins $20,000 to spend on hog reduction.

    It's been a long road and not all of it was paved.
    Live every day as if it were your last, because one of these days, it will be.

    Will somebody please think of the BACON!
    In most sports, cold-cocking an opposing player repeatedly in the face with a series of gigantic Slovakian uppercuts would get you a multi-game suspension without pay.

    In hockey, it means you have to sit in the penalty box for five minutes.
