Hi Hedgie Lover

I’ve finally got round to reviving my notes on natural identification – on Champions Chat. It’s quite a while since I first wrote them so some of the newer people on the forum may not have seen them. It is possible to identify hogs from either observation in real time yourself or via camera. They might look slightly different from one to the other, though – mainly due to most cameras being infra-red – less intrusive to the hogs and other wildlife – so you see them in black and white. But if you are watching at the same time the camera is going, you will know it’s the same hog.

Good luck with the camera! Sometimes it’s a bit of trial and error getting the right angle so that there isn’t too much glare (which sometimes varies from one camera to another), but once that’s sorted out they’re great.

Seems like you have been doing something similar re. identification, Sam1404. Glad to hear it!
