    Hunting Wild Boar With Dogs

    Boar Hunting, Hog Hunting and Pig Hunting are all the same type of animal, the method we are going to cover in this article is wild boar, hogs and pigs being hunted with dogs.

    Hunting dogs have been used to hunt boar since ancient times. Boar hunting dogs are loosely divided into two hunting dog categories, bay dogs, and catch dogs.

    Bay dogs harass the boar, keeping it cornered in one place and barking loudly. This behaviour is known as "baying" or keeping the boar "at bay". The bay dogs' barking alerts the hunters to the bay, so that the hunter may catch up and kill the boar. Sometimes the boar is tied up to be killed and cleaned later, as the meat of a dead boar goes bad very quickly.

    Bay dogs are typically Cur dogs such as the Leopard Cur, Blackmouth Cur also known as the BMC, Blue Lacy, Catahoula Cur and trailing scent hounds such as the Walker Hound, Foxhound, Plott Hound etc.

    Catch dogs grip the boar, typically seizing the boar's ear. Once they have the boar, they will hold it until the hunter arrives. The hunter then comes in from behind and kills the boar with a knife or spear, unless the objective is live capture and relocation, in which case the hunter will "leg" (seize and elevate a rear leg), "flip" (force the now off-balance boar to lay on its side) and then "hog-tie" the boar's feet.

    Catch dogs are typically "Bully" breeds such as the American Bulldog, American Pit Bull Terrier, Staffordshire Bull Terrier and other molossers such as the Bullmastiff, Cane Corso, Dogo Argentino, Dogue de Bordeaux, Great Dane, English Mastiff and smaller Mastiff crosses.

    It is not unusual for hunters to hunt with bay and catch dogs together. The bay dogs are used to find the boar and corner it. Once the boar is cornered or turns to fight, the catch dogs are released to seize the boar and hold it.

    Popular "hog dogs" in the U.S.A include the Blackmouth Cur, Mountain Cur, Catahoula, Blue Lacy, Plott Hound, Walker Hound, Pit Bull and purpose bred crosses. Popular "pig dogs" in Australia include Staghounds, Rhodesian Ridgebacks, the Bull Arab, Greyhound Lurcher crosses, various Terriers, and purpose bred crosses.

    These days boar hunting is also referred to as hog hunting or even pig hunting. Wild boar hunts are still very popular in countries such as Italy, Germany, Poland, Argentina and Russia.

    In the United States there are herds or wild boar established all across the country, thought to have been originally introduced to Cuba by Columbus on his 2nd voyage. Adult hogs have very few predators and thrive once established in an area. In some states such as California, hunters must purchase a hunting tag, but there is no limit on the numbers of animals that may be taken, unlike the limits on other game species such as deer, elk, and bear.

    In Texas boar hunting is becoming a way of life especially for the younger generation, youths in their early to late teens pulling out their shap looking hunting rigs, loading up their bay and catch dogs, trailers, atv's, gators and mules etc, to start their weekends.
