Hog Wild! by Chester Moore

Chester Moore is the Executive Editor for Texas Fish & Game Magazine, and has written for most fishing publications in Texas. He has also authored other books on fishing subjects – redfish, flounder, and speckled trout. A native and resident of Southeast Texas, Chester has a lot of experience with feral hogs, and has researched their history in Texas for this book. He covers all the basics of hogs hunting – weapons, techniques, dog hunting and where to hunt – as well as regulations (or the lack of them). He also discusses the European “boars” imported to Texas, and the native javelina – which ic pig-like, but not a pig. The foreword is written by Chester’s friend and our Texas Fish & Game colleague, Ted Nugent. In spite of this being a very good book for the Texas hog hunter, I was sort of disappointed with the title. You, see, I have been working out a novel in my head for a few years now that would deal with a nuclear accident that leaves feral hogs and coyotes as the “dominant species” on the Texas coast – and, of course, my title was to have been “Hog Wild”! Checking on Amazon, however, I found SEVERAL other books already out with the same title besides Chester’s, including a very racy story of a “lusty” girl and three bikers, so maybe I can still use it!
