I am on a lease that has hogs for the first time. I went out today for the first time and looked it over. Saw a lot of areas with tracks, that I think are deer, but I have heard that hog tracks look like deer tracks. Is this so, and if it is, how can you tell the difference? Never had to deal with the hogs before.
hog tracks are always rounded and most of the time show the dew claws. the toes are real round .
deer are always long and narrower than hogs.look till you see a hog then looks at the track next to a deer. once you see the difference it is real easy to tell.
just takes pratice.my wife has hunted for years and still can't tell the difference,not to compare.[&:]
I am not a hunter ; I am a whitetail population reduction specialest
remember keep your back to the sun, your knife sharp, and your powder dry.
For deer, does make a heart shaped track. Bucks toes generally run about parallel. Hogs usually have a rounder track, with toes pointed outward. An easy giveaway is to look how deep the track is. Hogs are very heavy, so they leave a deep track.
You may beat the rap, but you won't beat the ride!
dont be fooled st. barnard young hawgs will leave a track similiar to a small deer.....all hawgs are not heavy when theyre young but without a doubt you WILL know when you see a hawg track especially if its a good size hawg
