Even if they could be trapped or killed, what does a person do with 20 or 30 hogs alive or dead?

    I would prefer an M1 carbine myself.

    Catching to sell south is an interesting idea. Local butchers won’t touch pigs.

    The local wild pigs we shot in Hawaii were good eating after being wrapped in banana leaves and covered with hot lava rocks for 24 hours.

    Years ago before the "regs" I was climbing thru about 15000 feet and my phone rang. It was laying in the window and I had forgotten to turn it off......... my bad.............. The F/O was flying and we were above sterile so I answered it .......... it was the wife "checking in" and we talked for a minute or two before before call dropped.

    I do remember several instances where you could hear a cell phone "chirping" in the radios and had to get the F/A to get someone to turn their phone off. But yet have never had an issue with either navigation or communication like some claim.

    I have had two android phones that I could hear checking in (chirping). I have been using an iPhone for several years and have never heard it chirp.
