Wild pigs are often known as feral pigs and are known for their robust nature, which allows them to thrive in a variety of environments.

While the terms are sometimes used interchangeably, "pig" generally refers to domesticated swine, whereas "wild boar" pertains to the wild ancestors of domesticated pigs. In some regions, feral pigs—domestic pigs gone wild—are also hunted, adding another layer to the terminology.
Pigs, especially feral pigs, are found in many parts of the world, from the U.S. (notably Texas, California, and the southeastern states) to Australia, New Zealand, and parts of Europe.
Pigs are highly adaptable but typically prefer wooded areas, wetlands, and farmlands where they can find ample food and cover.
Methods vary by region and hunter preference. Spot and stalk, baiting, using dogs, and trapping are among the most popular methods. Night hunting with thermal or night vision optics is also prevalent where legal.
Depending on the method and location, hunters might use rifles, bows, or shotguns. A good knife is also essential for field dressing.
This depends on the region. In places where feral pigs are considered pests due to their impact on local ecosystems and agriculture, the season might be open year-round. Always check local regulations.
Pigs have an excellent sense of smell, making them challenging to approach. They can also be aggressive when cornered or wounded, so caution is advised.
Aim for the vital organs, typically behind the front shoulder for a broadside shot. As with all hunting, it's crucial to understand the animal's anatomy and be proficient with your weapon of choice.
Absolutely! Wild and feral pigs can provide lean and flavorful meat, which can be used in a variety of dishes.
