Loc: The Colony, TX
I was wandering around on my lease yesterday afternoon and spooked up 3 hogs who were hanging out in one of the tanks. Shocked me to see them running around when it was 102 outside. Figured they'd be purely nocturnal at this time of year.
With hogs and many animals, you can't think in absolutes like "purely nocturnal." They may be primarily nocturnal, but if they get too hot where they are, regardless of the time of day, they need to cool down.

Yagh, hogs will be seen around water in the heat... Creeks, streams, rivers, watering holes,ponds, lakes, & around up rooted trees in bottom land... Pig skin doesnt breath, reason they use it for footballs...
