I’ve seen various tracking studies which shows hogs generally have about 3-6 homes and shift between them over a few miles distance. Some (few) can stay put and I guess those are the ones that found a a human to stick food down for them day after day. Whether hoggies share homes as in, you’re not using it so I’ll use it while you’re elsewhere, like a freebie tent, or whether then have to make their own each time I don’t know – but after a few years it does look like some will stay put, and others will move on (or die).

If you get into your hogs, just be prepared, they’ll move on eventually.
