Hi Laurasweet24

Sorry to hear that the hogs there have gone missing. It’s something that happens sometimes. Hogs have surprisingly large ranges and they may just be concentrating on other parts of their ranges – especially now in the run up to hibernation time.

Don’t worry too much. Hopefully they will return, if not before hibernation then afterwards.

I would continue to leave a small amount of food out, in case they return, but definitely make sure water is available all day every day – including through the winter. You never know when a really thirsty hog is going to happen along.

Good luck.
