Arn, don't beleive everything you read in those hunting mags there seems to be an awfull lot of BS between the covers on most. They have to make it interesting so people will buy them is why. Also some of that stuff you read in those mags is just that a story/ made up by someone.
We have killed them with a stick by chasing them into their burrow and then standing just behind it and wait for the little bugger to poke his head out then whack lights out for the whistle pig.
Build memories, take a kid out doors and teach them about nature by interacting with it, hunting and fishing.
Learn from the past, don't dwell on it.
