Bob Love Jr., 13, right, sits quietly after shooting his first wild hog while his father, Bob Love Sr., left looks  for more hogs passing by their hunting blind during Satuday's Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission youth hog hunt. The hunters would not collect the hog until after the hunting period ended later that evening. The 2,500-acre Pepper Ranch 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 the youth hunt.
