Default Hog Hunting in Cold Weather

I was wondering if hog hunting was worse or better in cold weather. I am looking to go give it a shot in Indiana but it is extremely cold right now, I didn't know if this would decrease my chances, increase them, or do nothing for me. Any tips would be great.

Hogs are going to find food no matter what! I have never hunted hogs in Snow, but have in 16-17* in North FL.

They alter their patterns a little bit, but they are still out there.

Thanks, what kind of patterns should I be looking for. I am pretty much a rookie at this. I have only hunted with guides so it is definitely different. When, where should I look? Thanks. Also, when putting out an attractant or bait, can they smell pretty good or not. I am just wondering if that will draw them in by any chance. Also is it better to hunt them at night.

Does a tree rub look like a deer rub? Also, do they rub year round?
