Wildlife populates the 2,500-acre Pepper Ranch which was purchased by the Conservation Collier land preservation program from private landowners in 2009. As an alternative to hiring trappers to handle the ranch's invasive hog population, the county recently decided to allow managed, permitted hunting on the property - including Saturday's Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission youth hog hunt.
