What does a feral hog track look like?

Feral Hogs October 04, 2011|Print

Feral hog tracks are similar to white-tailed deer tracks in size, but feral hog tracks are broader and have more rounded front toes than the pointed front toes of deer.  Also, if feral hog tracks show dew claws, they are wider than the front toes, whereas in white-tailed deer the dew claws are mostly the same width as the front toes.
