    I and a couple friends were out west of Forbes air field near topeka ks. /there was maybe 2inches of snow and ice on ground and we came up on a little pig all by his self in a cut bean field, he couldn,t have been more than 4 weeks old and no bigger than a rabbit, anyway my friend decided to try and catch him, no way , that little pig humiliated my friend, he looked like no other hog I have seen out around clinton lake area/ he had wire looking hair on his back almost looked like a pot belly pig baby, he was all black/ we talked to a farmer and he said he thought someone turned loose some wild pigs and they crossed with the feral hogs/I hope to take some pictures in future and post along with a pure white doe I,ve been watching north of lawrence on the KU study area//// thanks ,Ned Colt

    A friend of mine took thus picture north of lawrence ks. last fall and what I thought was a doe is actually a buck,we saw him this winter and he had a rack/ we hope to get a pic soon, he is in a place that sees no humans and he wasnt scared/also saw ahuge buck who was stripping a 10 inch round tree down to a nub in same area and I think it might be his father due to a white spot or two behind his ear.

    Next Time you see that little pig you better kill It or you won't be seeing many deer in the near future. Trust me this happened to us about 2 years after seeing a little piggy like you described. It takes 3 generation for hogs to become completely wild. We were seeing deer all the time then the pigs moved in tore all the woods up looked like a garden tiller went through the woods. They tore up all the food plots and we quit seeing deer all together. you can shoot a few pigs and they go nocturnal. A deer has nothing on a pig. Pigs are some of the most intelligent animals on the planet.A pig has two things on his mind eating and makin more bacon. They can have at least 3 litters a year. I will tell you this they are some fine eating compared to a deer there is no comparison in my opinion. Start shooting and trapping them now if you still like deer hunting. The best time to really hunt them effectively is during the early spring. i killed 14 in one month 2 with my rifle and 12 with the bow. They are definately alot more fun than deer and most places you can shoot as many as you want year round.

    You are right about deer and hogs/I have noticed the decline around clinton lake wildlife areas //I think maybe strong scent on trails and everything else/// also kansas closed hog hunting in entire state and it is not working// I saw 2 huge sows that were heavy with baby pigs just last weekend on private land/go figure//will keep you updated/ also will try to get a picture of that white buck /I saw him a month ago with a small set of horns/its the same one in picture I posted(I thought it was a doe) thanks Ned
