Wild turkey predating farm crops
And unlike most wildlife that’s dying for a little dinner, the wild hog will not fall for bait, always leaving food behind that’s placed in the trap.Along with the wild hogs’ sense of smell comes acute hearing, as well as eyesight that proves a hog can detect a human figure over 100 yards away.As hog populations increase, so do the coyote populations.Not to mention owls, bobcats, the mountain lion and the black bear, are also ready, willing and able to have a pork dinner at any time.
The hunter is getting more and more involved with this overrun, with wild hog hunting running neck-and-neck now with the whitetail deer in popularity.
Attempting to keep the numbers down is almost impossible, seeing as that wild hogs can live almost anywhere.
Highly adaptable, the creature has almost no barriers when it comes to climate or habitat, and can even live over a day’s journey away from the nearest supply of water.
When it comes to food, the wild hog is also an easy-to-please diner.
Although they are omnivores when they get the opportunity, they exist manly on plant matter, as well as worms, insects and insect larvae.
