Feral hogs are numerous and widespread through three refuges in the Theodore Roosevelt Complex including Panther Swamp, Hillside and Morgan Brake NWR's. In order to implement a multi-faceted approach for managing feral hog populations the appropriate firearms were purchased. Three automatic rifles of .308 (1) and .223 (2) caliber were funded as well as a night vision scope. Field implementation will begin as soon as weapons are delivered and readied use.
