By: Angela Goral

Are you ready for a summer exercise program? In the water? Well we have just the program for you – WaterGym®!!

Our fifth year of FREE WaterGym® classes have started!! Our classes are open to all – Ladies, Men, and Teens. I am hoping all of our previous participants will return and we all hope to see lots of new faces this summer. WaterGym® is a water aerobics program that is very easy to learn and uses flotation belts--no feet on the bottom of the pool!! I have four extra flotation belts for newbies to try, so no equipment to buy until you try the program for yourself.  Click Here for more information.

 FERAL HOGS AT MOUNTAIN SPRINGS RANCH
The Wildlife Committee has recently received a report of  feral hog activity at Mountain Springs Ranch. The hogs are back and probably never left but have been inactive.  

There are two methods of control available to the residents of MSR.  One method is exclusion, either by permanent fence or temporary electric fence.  One member of the committee has had success with laying fencing flat on the ground.  Apparently the hogs are not comfortable walking on the fence.  Many residents have erected temporary electric fences.  In all cases, as best as we can tell, they have been successful in keeping the hogs out.  If you have an electric fence, please make sure it is functioning properly. The committee suggests that we as individual property owners must take responsibility for protecting our own property. 

The other method of control is traps.   The large trap in the Preserve was activated but no hogs have been near the trap.  The committee had found an individual that would have erected a large cage trap (larger than the small traps we have been moving around the neighborhood).  The trap site was chosen based on hog activity and their travel routes.  The trap would have been on private property; however the property owner  refused.  Another site was selected, the property owner was agreeable to the trap, but our trapper is not currently available.

Grub control should also be exercised.   Visit this site for more information about grubs: Click Here

If you have hog activity or have sighted hogs here is what the committee recommends:

  • Please report activity or sighting to Wildlife Management Committee via the MSRPOA website. Information desired is what happened, your lot number and any contact information, other than your email, that you would like to provide.
  • Begin the process of determining how to protect your property from future attacks as the hogs have a tendency to return.  As mentioned fencing has been effective.

The committee will continue to do what has been effective in the past.  Also, we are always searching for better ways to do things as limits allow.  Any property owner may contact the Committee via the MSRPOA website if you have any questions or suggestions. 


COMAL COUNTY BURN BAN IS ON
