Feral Hog Management

Feral hog populations have exploded throughout Texas including in Kerr County.  Hogs heavily use streamside areas as travel corridors and wallow in shallow water and mud to keep cool.  This has led them to become a major threat to water quality in our creeks and rivers.

Bounty Program

Kerr County and UGRA are taking proactive steps to address this problem by offering a $12 bounty on feral hog tails.  To request a bounty payment, bring your hog tails to Kerr County Animal Services at 3600 Loop 534 in Kerrville or call (830) 257-3100 for more information.  Consider printing the Bounty Application and completing sections 1 - 4 prior to arrival.

Hog Trap Program

Kerr County and UGRA will work with you to deploy a hog trap on your property to capture and remove feral hogs.  If you are interested in having the hog trap on your property or would like additional information, please complete this contact form.  Landowners participating in the hog trap program will be required to sign a release and waiver of liability. Completed forms can be submitted electronically to Tara Bushnoe (tbushnoe@ugra.org) or mailed to UGRA, 125 Lehmann Dr., Suite 100, Kerrville, TX 78028.
