The best I could do with my pocket camera.

Nice pig. Solid looking.

Where's that at? I do a lot of pig hunting (hence the avatar)

BTW: Hi all, brand new here. Laughing

Hello Shane, welcome to the club and our forum. I see pigs in the back of all the creeks off of Heckscher. These areas don't look like easy places to hunt.

That why there's nice pigs there. lol

You can tell that they get virtually no pressure by the fact that she's out in the open in the middle of the day. Pigs will go completely nocturnal at the slightest pressure. Or leave the area altogether.

I would bet the bigger one, the 2cnd picture, was of a large male. These pigs were not very concerned about me and just moved off, they didn't take off running.

Yeah, they have been conditioned that people on the water are no threat.

Hmmm. I think it's legal to shoot out of a boat as long as it's stopped moving when you do. Maybe I'll have to pack the bow with me on trips out there.

Nice pics of the swine Rob.

Welcome, Shane.

I know that area and by the looks of that picture, you'd have a very difficult time getting that carcass out of there if you were able to put a projectile into it.

You might have better luck sitting on the side of the road....haha.

I saw this guy when there was some inital construction going on in the New Berlin road area. I actually saw him alive early in the morning a couple of years ago then saw him in this conditon later that week. I recall it being fairly large.

One of the biggest boars I've ever seen was rooting on the side of I-95 just on the Ga side of the St Marys river. Happily oblivious to the traffic 5' away. Every time I go down south I see pigs rooting on the side of I95.

They're everywhere. Left unhunted they will double their population roughly every 9 months. They're not far from being to the point that no amount of hunting will stem the population growth. It's already that way in TX. They do a huge amount of damage to crops.

I missed those photos. Pretty cool Rob.
I have seen them on the banks of ML, but I cant remember seeing them here. The always ready, waterproof camera pays off.
