“I was chosen [as the Conservation Federation of Missouri} Conservation Senator of the year, which was a high honor. Very surprising to me. But you know, we have a lot of issues with feral hogs in my area. We’re very rural. And so we’ve, we have, we want to absolutely balance our dog hunters, right? That that want to hunt hogs and want to use their dogs for hunting in general, versus the difficulties of those feral hogs and the expanding population and how they tear up our farmers fields. And, heck, I had one farmer that planted three times and then finally give it just gave up. And I mean, it’s just really bad.” — Holly Rehder, Missouri State Senator
