    Yes and No. I have hogs and deer on my property. Deer will usually not move in too close to hogs feeding. But, I've also seen hogs work into fields that deer feed in, and the deer not care. Of course this situation deteriorates in dry years where acorns, greens, etc, are not as plentiful.

    My advice to you is to reduce your hog number through hunts. I hunt a lot of hogs during the off season, but when the weather is still cool; keeps my hunting skills honed. And, it can be a lot of fun. Good luck.

      I have had hogs run deer off on many occasions. As a matter of fact, I can't think of a single instance where the deer hung around when the hogs show up. The hogs will out-compete deer for a food source if they can reach it---they'll out-compete any species for that matter and will wreck the ecosystem through their rooting. I really don't like feral hogs.

        Hogs will out-compete every other animal in the area they are in. I have had people tell the hogs have denuded the entire area and left nothing for the animals that belong there. They leave nothing but destruction in their wake. In my book the only good wild hog is a dead wild hog. KTA, LGSTO those familiar with my posts will understand.

          Bo, you are so right except that we should KTA and let Satan do the sorting since that's where the hogs should go.
