    Pasture attacked by Feral Hogs

    My pastures have been attacked by Feral Hogs and now they look like a bombing range.

    What is the best implement(s) to use to get them back to level and dip free.

    Thanks

    Well, I suggest liberal application of 300BLK, or whatever you have on hand.

    Then look at the holes, wallows and trails they have made. Do you need to add dirt or just put it back?

    I'd suggest the backhoe to fill stuff in, then tamp it with the bucket. Then roll the wheels over it.

    If they have rooted up stuff, you may need a toothbar to help sort it all out; maybe backdrag to the center of whatever.

    Replant as soon as possible to help keep erosion under control. Use the bucket to carry protective straw, and spread with a rake by hand.

    ETA: Anything organic will rot and cause a dip, so maybe a bit of a mound of fresh dirt?

    I'd try disc harrows first depending on how bad it is.

    It depends on the amount and extent of the damage.

    A box blade would work well if you're not trying to cover a lot of acreage.

    If it is real bad, you might have to disc up the whole pasture and drag it, but that will also mean re-planting.
    Taking the easy way is what makes rivers and men crooked.

    Hogs are a huge problem here in central Texas, especially on ranches with live water. When the hogs get pressured from hunting, they will move to another ranch. They are very smart and can have several litters a year.

    The usual land damage are random ruts that are several inches deep, they will completely dig up large areas.

    At 1:25, the little pig in front that takes off with the pack appears to duck behind a tree while the rest go running. Did I really just see that? I know they are smart, but...

    After looking at it again, I think it got shot and flopped down behind the tree.
