Boars Head (and I don’t mean the cheese)

Kawaili road is a one laner that branches off of the Red Road and heads west back to the main road.  I’m not sure if the warning hanging on the tree is meant for the pigs or for the folks who travel this road.  Probably both.  The wild pigs are pretty much everywhere in the wild parts of the Big Island.  We’ve even seen them on the ‘dump road’ just out of old Pahoa Town and have just recently been visited by several on our property including a boar, sow and her little ones.  Not a good thing.
Once we had cut the 50 feet deep section of elephant grass we began to see the tracks, poop and pigs.  Now they are getting right next to the house at night.  I have the distinct feeling we’ll be having a lot of bacon in the near future.  Anyone want to come over for a Luau?
