Jeremy Chavez helps his son Ryan, 6, with target practice before a wild hog hunt at Great Southern Outdoors Wildlife Plantation in Union Springs, Ala., June 16, 2012. Fast, smart and dangerous, the wild boar was once the most prized hunter's catch in ancient Greece. Now it is becoming a popular target of hunters in the United States. An explosion of wild pig populations has become such a nuisance that hunting seasons are being flung wide open for wild hog across the nation. (Michael Spooneybarger/Reuters) less
