Question - will hogs use water to get away from dogs like deer do? I've heard that they're very good swimmers so it makes sense that they would hit the water when being chased, but want to confirm this. thanks

Yes, they will. I've waded a few creeks, and into a few ponds, to get to a hog that is bayed up in the water. Good dogs will go right in after them. Sometimes to the detriment of the dogs. Hogs will drown a dog it they're not careful.

Thanks, Kevin and Marty! They're chasing hogs again with dogs on our hunting club - the creek's high again, about 300 yards across to other side and I bet that's where some of them are going. Still trying to learn all I can about hog hunting - nite season opens here in Louisiana on Feb. 28, and water's so high I will have to put up a small feeder & stand on edge of swamp. My others are gonna be in about 5 feet of water after this rain!
