Pigs like to spend their days in the heavy cover
Steep hillsides covered in oak are where wild pigs stay cool in the mid-day heat. This site is a well-known bedding area for hogs. Glassing from the far hillside we could see numerous dirt beds—evidence of heavy use by pigs. We moved in for a closer look. Our guide spotted two pigs bedded at the base of an oak and shouted at them to get them to stand. The pigs moved into the clearing offering a clear shot.
