Question Do Georgia hogs have Russian boar blood in them?

Do you think some Georgia hogs have Russian boar blood in them or are they just regular ol feral pigs?

Scientists seem to think its really common here in Ga that hogs contain russian blood.

What say you?

I would guess that at least a certain population would. Ya figgure any game farm that has any russian hogs that excape, they would likely start breeding with the feral's

I remember seeing an ad for a place in Tenn. that had russian boars. The way hogs roam, I would say they have some.

In areas, possibly, but I think that it's been mixed so much with farel that the % of Russian in them is quite small in most parts of the state.

Yes they do, There was a stocking of them in Houston County in the 70's. There is a thread on GON with some pictures of this stocking.

Look at the snout on this one from last Friday. A Feral hogs snout is not NEAR this long.

When pigs become undomesticated they start taking on the charastics of their wild cousins, and this is done fairly quickly. A couple of genertations into the farelism and any black hog could closely resemble a Russian. Not saying that the one in the pic doesn't have Russian in it, and maybe even a high percentage, but doubtful it's a true, blue Russian boar.

Now this is from my TLC and THC Docterate, so take it for what it's worth.

We have seen some "released" on the eastern side of the state with livestock tags still in their ears, where they were recently bought at an auction, then we know that some "hog doggers" have caught & released animals throughout the state as well.

Over a period of time it doesn't take long for the strains of animals and the genetics to become blanded.

I don't think there are any "free-roaming" pure breed strains of wild boar, in any part of Georgia.

I know that ours are "Blended" with the Russians anyway. They are Red, Black or a mix of red and black for 95% of the ones killed. Red & Black are the True Russian Colors.
They also do not have the Big Dumbo Floppy ears of a feral Pig.

Here is a Mount that I was just sent from a wounded Iraiqi Vet from his January Hog. It was red.

They will get territirial with your feeders, from time to time. They prolly won't let smaller boars come in & feed.
