Distribution, Relative Abundance and Management Needs of Feral Hogs in Florida

One hundred and fifty-eight questionnaires were mailed to Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission wildlife officers, wildlife biologists and managers, and private and federal foresters in June 1975. The questionnaire asked for information on the distribution, relative abundance, and trends in feral hog (Sus scrofa) populations from 1965 to 1975 in Florida. Results from the 117 respondents indicated that feral hogs were present in 66 of the 67 counties, that the densest populations are in large, heavily forested tracts, and that populations have decreased or remained approximately stable during the past ten years.
