Hogs vs. Deer

I am from Illinois and recently moved to Alabama. We dont have hogs where I am from and I dont know too much about them. My question is will hogs drive deer out of an area? The area I am hunting now is full of hogs but I haven't seen many deer and I have wondered if the hogs may be why. If you know can you help me out? Thanks

Sounds like the Hogs are in competition for the same food source as the deer. do you have deer signs, tracks, rubs scrapes, droppings, anything ?

If not I would clear out the hogs, wild hogs are considered a nuisance species in most states, They spread many diseases as well and if the area is inundated with them then it's a good possibility they are eating the same food sources that would hold the deer to the area.

I agree with Sempr. Get rid of as many hags as you can and they will destroy the area and chase the deer out. They may be eating the same things the deer eat and they are a little meaner too.

they won't necessiarly chase deer out but the deer will come when the hogs aren't around. but you'll want to try your best to keep the hog numbers under control or they'll be rooting up everything
