Florida Wild Hog Damage to Environment
There are three different types of Florida’s wild hogs they are free-ranging swine, wild boar, and hybrids of the Florida free range hogs and domestic hog. Wild hogs in Florida are referred to as feral hogs. Wild hogs found in Florida are basically the same.
Why Are Wild Hogs so Dangerous to Florida Environment?
Florida wild hogs eat whatever is available vegetation, fruits, fungi, and a variety of worms, insects, crustaceans, snails and animals like fish, small birds, mammals, snakes, toads, frogs, and other animals. Wild boars may also feast upon a dead animal if it is available. Florida Wild hogs eat more plant than animal material, and that is where the problem comes in. Wild hos and wild boars can destroy a plantation of peanuts, rice, sorghum, melons, forage grasses, corn, grains, vegetables, and orange trees orchards. Wild hogs will destroy food plots by rooting, digging up young tender roots and destroying the plant.
Florida wild hogs can feed over 450–750 acres; they may travel longer distances if food is limited. When temperatures drop wild hogs tend to seek out food both night and day.
Florida Wild Boar Hunting
Florida wild hog hunting is an important way to control wild hogs it helps in keeping to wild hog population down by the hunting of adult wild boars and sows. Florida wild hog hunting is not that easy when done by fair chase. Wild hogs are smart and it can be quite the opportunity to pit wild hog against wild hog hunter. Wild boar hunters seek large boars tusks, which make great taxidermy mounts. Wild hogs are hunted by various methods. Some wild hog hunters use rifles, shotguns, bow and arrows, knifes and spears. Baited stands, swamp buggy, stalking and hunting dogs do some wild boar hunting.
Wild Hogs-In the Beginning there was Pig
Wild hogs or wild boar, can be also called wild pigs they are not originally found in this part of the world. Hogs came here to the United States via the early settlers. They were primarily raised for stock feeding the settlers and explorers. Then settlers brought in the Eurasian wild boar to be used for hunting purposes introducing them to different parts of the country. As one could imagine domestic hogs and Eurasian hogs would get loose and interbreeding would occur. With this interbreeding we now have hybrid wild hogs of today. These larger populations are mainly in southeastern states and California with Washington having a hot spot. You can find wild pigs just about everywhere but these are the primary wild hog areas.
When the early settlers brought domestic pigs into this area the raising of stock was done by free range. Naturally some of these hogs would escape and become thus have litters of wild hogs when bred. When the Eurasian hog was introduced to the US for hunting these hunting preserves would occasionally have escapees. When these Eurasian hogs that escaped met up with the domestic hogs that escaped the result is hybrid wild hog we now have that renders havoc on our agricultural lands.
How Wild Hogs Damage Agriculture and other animals if not controlled.
To repeat a bit damage to agricultural areas is nothing new from wild hogs. States not prohibit free-range hog practices. The damage they cause is very great when. Hogs are an important food source but not at the cost and havoc the cause to the environment. We know that wild pigs run about damaging crops and forests. Damaging crops the eating they, uprooting plants and plant roots, creating ruts for farm equipment. Is to name a few ways wild hogs impact. In the forest the wild hogs love acorns, hickory nuts, beechnuts and other sources of nuts. When wild boars are heavily populated in these areas they eat up seedlings before they are able to grow into producing adult trees. Wild hogs also endanger the balance of animal life in areas. They eat eggs of animals that nest on the ground as well as lizards, turtles, frogs, crabs, and snakes. Sometimes wild hogs will eat a newborn whitetail deer in young enough.
