Yup, didn't know the size area being torn until now. ;)  Sure seems a ways north for a hog to survive the winter cold though. They wouldn't make it here, if the cold didn't bite them the snow would starve'm. Only feral hogs we had was farmers not keeping their hogs attended to in the summer rooting in the potato fields and grain.
Move'n on.

Wild Hogs Caught in Michigan.

Trapping efforts led by the Michigan Wildlife Conservancy have resulted in the capture of 20 wild hogs in Midland County. All have been Eurasian wild hogs, rather than feral domestic hogs, according to the conservancy.

Most of the hogs were juveniles, but a big boar and pregnant sow were also caught. Wild hogs are considered
by many experts to be a significant threat to our forests and wildlife, as well as a disease threat to domestic hogs.

We are 1st day through a 3 day aerial shooting campaign for feral pigs, started this afternoon, only 44 shot, tomorrow should see bigger numbers taken. We are starting at 6:00am till 10:30 am and then 2pm to 5:50pm. The control work is over 20 properties and 3 National Parks, should take some pigs out of the equation.

I saw a Feral Hog on the side of the northbound lanes of I-95 this morning at 7am. 10 miles north of West Palm.  I was paying attention to the State Trooper who was in the break down lane and there it was right after.  It was all black and eating something on the wrong side ofda fence.  It's been a little while since we had seen a live one.  I have seen one dead onda side of a country road last week and the week before also but not onda 95.   People are going 80+ onda 95!

Or even a small one.  I am told that hogs are solid and will cause auto damage big time.   :-\

Of course, we don't have moose, but I had heard that they are worse than horses.   :-\

About the only redeeming quality is the meat, and it better be a young one because those old bruisers are tough as nails. ;D

Ditto, same time same place this morning except this time there was 2 of them.   I heard a news tidbit that 37000 pigs get hit by vehicles every year.
I don't know if it is true, but if it is,  that's concerning.

Like Troy on the History Channel Show, Swamp People......."Shoot em, Elizabeth, shoot em!!"

On the Swamp People aired downed here last night one of the participants using a cross-bow shot a big tan sow. I think the weight was exagerated at 500lb, all the same it was a big pig.
