Hi Hogmeister

Your own made hoghouse sounds a very des res for hogs – no wonder the hog is using it.

The male hogs do seem to hibernate earlier than the females and they return from hibernation earlier as well. As much as 2 months difference here. I think most of the males may have started hibernating already. They have nearly all disappeared from here and did the same last year.

I know what you mean about when they don’t follow their normal pattern of behaviour, etc. – Hogs are a joy and a worry. Soon most of them will be disappearing for hibernation and then there will be the long wait, hoping that they’ll all return next year.
