Don’t miss this NewsOK video about hunting hogs

My favorite NewsOK video comes from this weekend’s content.

The story? … Feral hogs provide formidable prey for Oklahoma hunters

The story was good. It really educated me on the problem the hogs create:

Feral hogs have become a problem for landowners because they tear up land and eat food intended for livestock. Hogs destroy crops by rooting or rolling around in and trampling crop land. The most extensive crop damage occurs at planting time or when the crop is nearly mature.

The photos were good too, illustrating the story in a way that isn’t really possible with words. Photographer Garett Fisbeck supplied more than 20 images that helped bring the story to life. What is the face of the feral hog hunter? Where do they spend their days? What kinds of tattoos do they have? What does a feral hog track look like?

But nothing could put me in the hunt like the 3-minute video Garett produced to go with his photos. Thanks to that work, I feel like I know these guys.

Nice to meet you, Johnny Heskett and Josh Kinsey. Thanks for sharing your adventure with us.
