Wild pigs are an invasive pest species across the south and southeast, causing hundreds of millions of dollars in crop damage, while competing with native species for food and habitat. They are so bad in some areas that they contribute significantly to erosion and even damage water quality.

You’ll notice that the hunters are using AR-15-style rifles in several calibers, night vision scopes, suppressors, and standard-capacity magazines as they take on these herds of crop-destroying pests surging across soybean and peanut fields.

We head south with OpticsPlanet and Hero Hunt to do some pig hunting. Squeal Team 6 guides pig hunts through the fields of South West Georgia and they took us on the hunt of a lifetime.
