Default tracking hogs?

I am going on hog hunt on dec, 1 and I have never been before. Are there any sites you could suggest, that would show what types of tracks and other things hogs leave behind? thanks in advance.

They look a lot like a deer, only fatter and rounder at the end of the hoof... You'll see enough scant ( do do ) to see if it was left by hogs or deer. Hog scant is a lot like dog dukie... ... Also hogs root a lot they leave holes where they have been digging up what ever they can.

The toes on hogs are rounder than a deer. Hog toes often point outward on bigger hogs, while a buck's toes run nearly parallel. A doe will leave a heart-shaped track.

Also look at fences and obstacles. Barbed wire fences will often have hog hair in the barbs where the hog goes through or under the fence. Fallen logs and trees will have mud on them where the hogs rub against them going around or over them.

one more. . . once you find wallows etc. look around you will also find where they rub on trees too. . lots of mud, the higher up on the tree the bigger the pig. If you have any power lines in the area. . .they love to rub on Keasote (sp?) treated lumber, like the smell I guess. I found they would almost go out of there way. . .a little bit anyway to rub on those poles. . .

If you spend lots of time in the woods - use your senses a little! You can hear the oinkers and if you are really good like Rev you just stick to smell, and track em like terrier!
