Who hunts hogs in the mornings during the summer. I won't Hunt them at night during the summer. I get there right at daylight when it is cool sometimes me and the hog gets there at the same time and I shoot them on the spot and sometimes I wait for a couple hours. Summer is my favorite time to hunt hogs for that reason. And also when you are waiting for them you can look at stuff unlike night when it's dark and can't see anything.

I thought you could only take hogs in months that have an R in them. No wait that's oysters.

Seriously, I have heard about leaving in summer because of all the pests they carry in warm weather.

Wait, there are folks that don't hunt them in summer? What?

Ron H, what pests do hogs have that are warm weather only?

Before I could drive I would hunt them at night but after I could drive I just go in the morning during the summer since I can get there and leave when I want. I have shot more in the morning than at night anyway

I don't think he meant to imply that hogs have certain pests/parasites that they don't have in cold weather, but rather they harbor more of certain pests in number, (I.E. fleas, or certain internal parasites), which is not without some basis.

If hunt summer and you butcher, get on ice quickly and cool down the meat.

I'd say this is an important point. When it is 25 degrees outside you can take your time skinning and cleaning, you probably don't want to spend an hour and a half on one pig when it is 100 degrees outside.

It's not so much for comfort as it is making sure the meat doesn't get to hot so it doesn't start to go bad.
