    I've been following our so called feral hog problem since 2005. Another deer season has come and gone and yet no hogs hanging from buck poles. Anyone even see any?

    I know of 1 feral hog that was killed during the deer season of 2016. It was killed in Hillsdale county. I am not sure by what town.

    Urban legend fostered by the MiDNR and the Feds to cover up the growing northern timber chupacabra problem methinks.

    We got one on camera in West Branch in November. It’s a heavy Ag area so I’m sure it escaped from somewhere nearby.

    When pigs go feral they love thick swamp/wooded areas, you know that stuff where most wont bother hunting or even walking into. That is their natural inclination if given the choice. Not to mention they are nocturnal if pestered.

    I've seen the Dog Man, but never a pig.
