Annual hunting contest aims reduce population of feral hogs in DeWitt County

​Cash prizes and donated items from local businesses draw competitors to take part in the hog hunting contest

A contest that started in 1994 – supported by local ranchers and the county extension office- has become a tradition in Cuero.​

​Cash prizes and donated items from local businesses draw competitors to take part in the hog hunting contest, February 7-9.

​County Extension Agent Anthony Netardus shares more.​

​”It’s a big deal to these hunters, I’m not a hog hunter, I’m just a county agent that organizes this contest, but with these hunters its pride among them to see who brings in the heaviest hog in to the contest and new to add to the pride we are also going to be giving belt buckles to the winners in each division,” Netardus said.

​Dog hunting teams will get four belt buckles and for the bow division they’ll get one belt buckle and for the two-man gun hunting team they’ll get two belt buckles as well. ​
