How long do feral hogs live?

It is believed that the life span is between 4-8 yrs but many factors can influence that i.e hunting, diet, environment.

What are their eating habits, and how much do they eat in a day?

Wild pigs are omnivores, which means they feed on plant and animal matter. They are also scavengers and will feed on deceased animals.

Approximately 85% to 90% of their diet is vegetation (including crops where available) and 10% animal matter. Small pigs may eat approximately 5% of their body weight daily; larger pigs an estimated 3 % of body weight. But I have seen varying opinions on these numbers.

How fast can they run?

They can run extremely fast, up to 30 mph. They can also jump objects and obstructions up to 3 ft high.

Can wild hogs live anywhere?

Hogs are very adaptable to their surroundings and can live in many different types of habitats.

Should I use scent spray?

Yes. Hogs can smell extremely well. Masking your scent is imperative. Also, play the wind. If you walk into your hunting area, spray your boots and legs, bottoms of boots, too. Spray packs and gear. If a wild hog smells/ senses anything out of the ordinary, they will bolt.
