    DEER30 peaked my interest. Has anyone seen or know anything about the "mule-foot" feral hog? I understand they're only found along the Georgia coast. They're called "mule-foot" because their hooves aren't cloven. Saw one on a TV sports show many moons back, but have never heard anything else about them.

        Happy, from Gary, I expected it! From YOU! ROTFLMAO!!!!

        Actually, gentlemen, (and I use that term loosely! LOL!) there is truly a breed of swine know as "mulefoot"! In fact, there is also a "registry"!
        They are a "heritage" breed that almost became extinct. Today they are flourishing, thanks to the efforts of people who care about "unique" traits!. ....and yes, they have a hoof like a mule! They are exclusive to the U.S..

              It appears to be true. I saw a guy shoot one in Florida on one of the hunting shows a couple years back. They showed a close-up of the single hoof on each leg. It was strange to say the least. BTW I shot about a dozen on my Uncle's cattle ranch in Sumter Co. Fla and all had cloven hooves.

                      Gary's "site" kinda confirmed what the TV show I saw stated.
                      Spanish (the only ones?) explorers dropped pigs in locations where they intended to return. The pigs could then serve as a food source when they came back.
                      We all know the result (present even today!) of THAT experiment!

                        Bubba, I'll go on a hunt for one with you, but if you track one right into someones barnyard paddock you'll surely make an ass out of yourself!!!
