They are Russian boar. Also well known from Germany to Turkey. Fairly cold places. I never could figure out why some ppl thought they could only survive in the southeastern US. Your right, thier habitat is about as diverse as it comes and they not only live but thrive about anywhere.
Want a quick and inexpensive call for Moose? Take an empty 32 ounce coffee can, and make a small slit in the bottom, only about a quarter inch. Then, take one of those really big red rubber bands, the ones that go around big folders. Cut the rubber band to make one long piece.
Now, thread one end of the band and tie a knot on the outside of the can so it won't pull through. Cut the band off on the other side so it is even with the top of the can.
Now, wet your finger,...
