Evening Hog

Postby LowKey » 11 Dec 2017 16

This hog made his appearance a couple of minutes after sunset.
This is very unusual around here, most are only seen moving at night.

My guess is that his early arrival was related to the cold weather.
Trail cam show temperature was 37 F.

A friend said he doesn't think deer, hogs, and other animals feel the cold like humans.

Here's a link to an interesting article about what makes deer move.

The article is based on "twenty years of research, including 35,000 hunter days and statistics from the National Weather Service about the weather conditions on both morning and afternoon hunts, brings us all startling new information about when deer move."
