We have two big hogs on our place that we have been seeing for the last 3 years.

Been same size the whole time....how old do they get


For it is not the quarry that we truly seek, but the adventure.

Normally around 4-5 years. Under ideal conditions they could live several years longer.

Longer than a lot of folks would think. Have some boars and barrs that I can ID that have been on camera for 5yrs...one no tail, no ear ugly spotted one that has been big from 06-present.

That dude is getting to be ancient. I hate hogs but I don't know if I could shoot that dude.

8 is about it in the wild, though that isn't to say that you won't find the rare one living longer. As noted above, 4-5 is probably more of the norm.

Yup....I'd say anything over 6-7 is very, very lucky......

I killed a old nasty boar that the land owner estimated to be 7. Hair was all but gone, teeth worn down.
