I’m sure you will receive expert advice to your ? And I’m no expert!
But from what I’ve learnt from the site and personal experience is that you shouldn’t give up on them coming back! I have a male ( Big Bruiser) who tends to come and go! I had given up some weeks ago on him returning – but he came back! So I always put out enough food for the hogs living in my garden and for him, just in case he fancies eating at this hog restaurant 😂
I think I’ve also read that because males don’t have the babies, they are at a good weight earlier, so may hibernate earlier!
Sounds like your smitten with the little cuties as I am ! x
