I just watched the discovery channel show "Hogzilla" it is a must see for any hunter. Lots of great info on wild boars etc. Very fun to watch. The most interesting part for me was the fact that a domesticated pig will "go wild" after only a couple of weeks in the wild and will grow more hair etc.) They are also moving north accross america and are well established in Cananda. I think this will be another great game animal for us hunters.
Saw that,loved that part!like an animal grows longer hair and tusks because it has been outside if a fence for two weeks!!Lots of good info in that piece but they try to dramatize it like they are an unstopable plague that will overun the planet...LOL!!
lol. a domestic hog will grow tusks and longer hair if they are kept out side of a hog confinement. (Adn if you don't keep the tusks broke off). i personally hate pigs, so i hope they do get to be where you can hunt them nationwide
They have them just north of us in Alberta Im suprised they havnt moved into the bad lands area of NE Montana,I have a feeling the ranchers out there probably keep em knocked down everytime they try,not much cover for them in eastern Montana but north west montana would be perfect for them lots of brush and swamps.
As I sit and glass, which is common for hunters out west, I have sort of quickly discovered something I never learned when I was younger.
In my youth I had enthusiasm and spirit. In my middle to advancing years I have creaky knees, arthritis, and I tire more easily than I used to. Where I used to sit on the cold hard ground I now look for that soft spot to sooth my tired muscles. That leads me to my tip.
Carry your soft spot with you!
In my pack I carry an air filled, ultralight, camping pad....
