Most will run away as fast as their fat legs will go.

That being said I have had one or two take a disliking to my scent and come looking for me. Maybe they thought I was after their " Ladies "...lol

The only time I got a little scared was walking in from my stand in the dark and had one VERY close grunting and stomping but I could not see the rascal

Any animal we hunt can be "dangerous" at times.

But that title should be saved for the "Big 5", Grizz/Brown/Polar bears, and the like....Those are DANGEROUS critters!!

agreed

I love hog hunting and didnt see much about it until I opened dangerous game. who would have thought it ?!

I can tell you first hand how dangerous hogs are.
I remember about 18 years ago shooting a wild pig (in the North West of Western Australia) at close range (within 15 meters) in the chest with a shotgun, using a 12 gauge solid slug.
I figured a 1oz solid slug at close range would be ample to drop a feral pig... I was definitely wrong on this occasion!
I hit it, but instead of dropping, it turned and came at me.
Luckily a friend of mine had his .30-06 loaded and ready, and managed to shoot it in the head before it got to me.
Stretched out it was about 7'.
Unfortunately I had no way to weigh it, so I can't tell you how heavy it was. But it was bloody heavy... Decent set of tusks on it too!
If it got to me before my friend shot it, I doubt I'd be here to tell the tale... I'm pretty sure I had to change my underwear after that encounter too! [Eek!] [scared]

I've been charged 3 times....the 1st one I side stepped....the 2nd two I paralized with shots just past the jaw into the spine....one was a buiser. My friend Curt Cabrera put another arrow into him as he was convulsing.....

I'll see if I can find a pic.

For dangerous game with a bow, the issue is are you going to do it with the bow. If you are shooting dangerous game, but you are cut out of the solution if the animal gets uppity, then it may be dangerous game for someone, you might even get hurt, but you aren't expected to be in on the solution. Hogs seems decent in the sense that whether backed or not, you could still be the solution in a charge, or whatever.

I have only had one frightening encounter with a pig. As a youngster, while walking to my deer stand, I got between a sow and her pigs. One of the little ones squealed, and Mama instantly charged. I don't if the attack was serious or not, because I climbed my scrawny butt up a tree.

Terry, I had a friend once who was attacked by a deer. He killed it and it tested out to be diseased with something or other. This guy is a very reliable fellow and has probably hunted in more areas of the world than most of us will see so I really don't think he was just telling a story. Nonetheless, though, does anybody know of a deer disease that might bring on this behavior?

I hear ya Sam, I just know folks that have been charged by hogs, me included, but no one by a deer, and I know lot more deer hunters than hog hunters and don't recall stories here on Tradgang other than this thread.

I have hunted hogs for 45 years and have killed my fair share up close. Never had one charge.
