Wild Hogs — Great for a First Hunter or Seasoned Woodsman

By Dave Dolbee
Hogs are quickly becoming a top game animal for hunters, and why wouldn’t they? Hogs are cheap to hunt, very prolific and extremely destructive to the local habitat. A single sow can have 15 to 20 piglets in a litter and up to three litters per year. Even if we went with lower numbers, a sow can easily produce 30-plus piglets a year with a 50 percent survivability to maturity. Conservatively, that would mean a 15-fold increase per sow, per year. That equates to exponential growth and destruction.
