The Strengths and Abilities of Hog Hunting Dogsfrom:
Some hog hunting dogs that hunt little squirrels also are good at hunting 250 to 400 pound wild hogs—a remarkable feat. A cautious big game animal, the wild hog is a cautious and fierce animal, considering the hunters, their guides, outfitters, and their dogs an enemy as it hides in the dense thickets from danger. The worse time to hunt wild hogs is after December, which is the month for mating. The litter is born into a depressed area into the ground, which has been dug out by the sow. Lining the den with grass and branches, she becomes extremely violent when defending her young.
The cur is one of those top-quality versatile dogs that is so loyal and full of ability that it will do whatever its owner wants it to hunt. But if you want to know about the types of dogs for hog hunting, talk to a hog hunter with his pack of hog hunting dogs either in person or in a forum/blog. One such group refers to the need for two types—the American Bulldog or the Cane Corso for the catch work of the wild hog, and the cur as a bay dog. Others use pit bull terriers or pitt bull mixes, even though most feel this dog does not have the stamina that is needed to hold down a 400-pound hog. On the other hand, hunters who have a good line of pitt, will swear by them. For those who professionally understand the performance-bred standard American bulldogs, they do not mistaken them for the Johnson lines, where the American Bulldog has been mixed with the English Bulldog and the Mastiff. The Scott lines American Bullodgs or Old English Whites were bred to be big game hunters by the Early American settlers for hog hunting dogs and wild bull hunting dogs.
For those who hunt in Argentina or Australia, their forum rates the Argentina dogo as one breed of excellent hog hunting dogs, while another forum rates the Australian Bullarab as the best hog hunting dogs, which is a 30-year mix of Bull terrier, Grey hound, and pointer, for hunting Australian wild pigs and scrub bulls. Others prefer the blackmouth cur, but obviously, it depends on the success of the hunt and the dog you have with you at the time, and have had over the years.
When a person plants on the hog hunting dogs trip, make sure the rules and regulations are well planned before going. Only 15 states actually have wild boar hunting: Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Kentucky, Mississippi, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, And of these areas, the rules and regulations need to be checked out completely to comply with the individual hunting laws, but if an outfitter is hired, part of the trip will be the license fee.
