Hog hunting is immensely popular among animal hunters.

For hunters, hog hunting is an opportunity to whet and fulfill their hobby while doing public good at the same time.

However, hunting hog has its dangers.

Compared to more benign game animals like deer, hogs are very aggressive.

If given an opportunity, they can attack and seriously injure a human being.

This is particularly true when they feel threatened. So if you are planning to start hunting hogs, you must take adequate safety measures.
