It may be cold in Wyoming, but Russia isn't known for mild winters and parts of Germany have nasty ones also, and most swine descend from such ancestors and it doesn't take long for those genes to start being expressed again.

I had alot of fun killing hogs for the fun of it in Florida. Orchard farmers will let you hunt them for free, some over feeders as the hogs are destroying orange orchards. I have a friend who lives down there invited me down and told me to bring my rifle, killed alot of hogs and was a blast. Way too cold for the hogs to move out by me. In Florida like most states, they are a nuisance and you can kill or trap as many as you want without a license.

this is very true... my parents are going down hog hunting in FL in a couple weeks.  There are a couple of guys through my dad's work that come to IL deer hunting every year, and we 'guide' them around- so they invited m&d down. Said just bring yourself, and clothes-- we'll do the rest.. They hunt over feeders, with whatever gun you want, do hog drives.. and even use the dogs..  I know 'rents are really looking forward to it...

Big big difference between a Russian boar and these wild feral pigs. Try to find pig farms/ranches in Wyoming, very few around and most that have pigs, that is not what they mainly raise and have the set up for the pigs. We are way to wide open with very little trees. The wind comes blasting through in the winter with 40 to 50mph winds. They don't have the trees to get down into to ovoid the elements. With that being said, they are easy picking out on the wide open pastures for all the varmints and hunters. The other issue is the vegetation. Pigs root and tear up the ground to eat the roots of of different plants, that's what killing the orange orchards. What do we have for them to eat, grass and sage brush we do have some corn and sugar beets in eastern Wyoming with irrigation. I don't expect a hog problem in Wyoming in any foreseeable future. When I lived in Missouri, there was a group of feral pigs that got loose from a high fence hunting ranch in the area of my dad's farm, the local farmers had all the pigs killed in a couple days as they are not a game animal in Missouri either, you see a wild pig, shoot it no license needed.

We have them in Moose Mountain Park Saskatchewan Canada . They survive our winters just fine.  We have no seen any at our place yet they are  10 to 15 miles south .  Most are escapee's from farms that raised wild boars.  The PIC Genetic Nucleus  hog barns have put up electric fence to keep them out.
