The other thing about these 3 suspect sows... they were LEANER than any barn swine this size we had seen but not "poor" lookin' at all...

And they were "leggy" as all get out... Narrow head and long snout... we had never owned such unusual lookin' pigs...

I never put 2 and 2 together until well into my time trappin' and doggin' feral swine problems...

I had 3 young boars in one trap one day and they were "polky dot" pie balds I seen as being "JUST LIKE THEM DANG TEXAS GILTS OFFSPRING WOULD LOOK!!!"...

Yeah, I wish it was more up to date, but I am not finding anything that shows any advances in distinguishing the various classifications with any assuredness based on morphology. It is what, 20 years old based on the latest citations in it. A lot has happened in the last 20 years.

I think that since the article has been written that distinguishing pigs origins IS probably more difficult, with pockets of pigs leaning little closer to the barnyard varieties.

As populations revert closer to there euroasian cousins, more barnyard escapees will get in the mix. As I am sure that a few imported sport hunting boars will get in the mix from time to time.

At one point some type of hybrid will become what's recognized as the "american wild pig"

My thumbs is tired......

I'll leave with: "POLKY DOTTED PIG"

I'd love to come hunt hogs. Could probably round up some night vision gear to bring along.

While it says it is updated monthly, the map is out of date and incomplete. I see where I have been out in west Texas multiple times now shows no hogs, but we hunt them there. The bizarre stopping of pigs at state lines indicates a lack of data as pigs don't follow state lines. Compare New Mexico with the county distribution map here... http://www.hcn.org/issues/43.14/inva...e-distribution and so the fed map is missing a lot of NM data.

The same goes for Oklahoma http://www.noble.org/ag/wildlife/feralhogs/status.html

Texas http://www.tpwd.state.tx.us/huntwild...ce/feral_hogs/

I think some of it just assumes river bottoms without data. It also assumes the caprock as their limit, which may be plausible.

The lack of accurate data is frustrating.
