About Wild Hogs in Central Texas:
Wild Hogs found in Central Texas are a mix of feral hogs and domestic pigs that adapted to the Texas landscape. They are found in many parts of the world including North and South America, Europe, Asia, and Australia. The population of Wild Hogs in Texas has expanded rapidly because they are an animal that has a high reproductive rate. Because of this, they are particularly problematic in the US where they can cause damage to crops and property which is why hunting wild hogs has become an important conservation measure.
The overall characteristics of a wild hog are much smaller, leaner, and more muscular than a domestic hog. On average, they can weigh between 75 and 250 pounds and can range from 3 to 5 feet in length. Wild Hogs can vary in color and patterns including white, red, brown, and black. Piglets often will have strikes or be spotted but this tends to fade as they mature in age. Wild Hogs often travel in family groups called Sounders which are made up of at least two or more adults and their piglets and can vary from a few hogs up to a few dozen hogs. Since causing so much damage wild hogs have allowed hunters in Texas to kill wild hogs year-round without limits on the hogs.
All hunts require a 50% non-refundable deposit at the time of booking.
