how far north have people seen hogs... is there a population in virgina or atleast nc?
I've never hunted hogs in N.C., only in Ga and S.C. But, interestingly enough, the very first wild boar with true European (Russian) heritage were likely found in western N.C. and have since spread to the eastern Tn mountains and elsewhere. These "originals" escaped from a fenced estate in the western N.C. mountains around 100 yrs ago and interbred with the typical loose hogs kept by many back then. .
Hogs do make their way as far north as Ontario Canada and they do hunt them in the winter also, there is a wild boar reserve that caters to hunters from all over North America. Google Big Tusks if you would like more info.
i dont remember the site but it had a shaded map showing hogs in every southern state and most of the east coast biggst thing is find a river vally that is swampy and you will most likly find them there
all i could find so far

My suggestion to him was to build some kind of light weight gravity feeder that could be strapped to a tree or a fence post if permenant, and this is what we came up with. I am...
