Very nice capture Eric...! It is frost over the grass?

Have a great Holidays.

Yes frost Marcelo and another drive by shot out the window and I forgot to shut the car off so it's not quite sharp photo : )
It was the shot more than the quality of it. I forget that there are a lot of people who aren't country or don't hunt that wouldn't get the caption or the significance of the posted sign. At least Steven got it : )

G'day Eric

Yes mate - good image & good title

Here in eastern Oz, we are getting reports from wildlife authorities that deer [like pigs & camels] released into the wild 100 yrs ago are now in plague proportions and are doing very serious ecological damage to the environment. The average depth of topsoil across Australia is 6-inches/ 15cm ... after this it's rocky or clay

However, over here they [deer] only live in the generally inaccessable "high-country" and helecopter baiting is probably the only way to get rid of them. Pigs are all over the place, and camels on the other hand are the desert animals, and it's estimated that there are 3-million feral camels wandering around central Australia > again to be culled via choppers

Phil,
We are getting reports in a lot of magazines and from our conservation people that feral hogs are becoming infested all over the United States. In most states where they are an issue there isn't even a limit. Since they have up to 3 litters a year at 6 or 8 little piggies at a pop they are extremely prolific and they make a mess wherever they go. NY state which never had any is getting them so they have spread all across the country. A problem that even hunters and conservationists may find hard to control

Pigs are very smart despite their popular image. My hunter friends tell me that wild boar are by far the most dangerous aminal to hunt. So my understanding is that those feral hogs are going to be really hard to get rid of.
