    They are NOT only found on the GA coast. They are found in numerous states. I have killed 4 here in Texas.

    I've never actually seen a "mule foot" hog. I grew up on E Texas hunting and fishing. I spent four years off and on trapping hogs in Oklahoma. We never caught one. I l know they're out there. Just curious if anyone else had any experience with them.

    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!!!

    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!

    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.

    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..
