Hog hunting is a popular pastime among many hunting enthusiasts, and is a supported population control method for the non-invasive species. While hunting hogs is enjoyed by many, it can also be a dangerous endeavor. In addition to the aggressive nature of hogs, which can put hunters at risk, feral hogs also carry diseases which can be transmitted to humans. One of the most common diseases carried by feral hogs is swine brucellosis.
It’s no secret that feral hogs are hard to take. With an estimated population of 2.6 – 4 million in Texas alone, feral hogs are an invasive species wreaking havoc on native crop and wildlife, and their rapid rate of reproduction, nocturnal nature, and adaptable diet make them a difficult species to slow down.

When is the best time to hunt feral hogs? It’s a question we hear over and over, and the answer is always the same – at night. As hog hunting has become an increasingly popular method to control the expanding feral hog population, the species has adapted to hunter behavior by becoming nocturnal. As a result, the best time to hunt feral hogs is when they’re awake and feeding at night.
