Hogs love grubs......thus the rooting, tearing up the soil.
Like Stwood said, grubs and other large bugs. I've seen then go after a non-venomous snake. They are also considered a pest because they go after the birds nesting in the tall grass, and have even been known to attack fawns. In the region, they will often raid farms going after what grains and feeds are left for the barnyard critters. A lady I know about 80 miles west of us lost 4 ducks and 1 chicken, which were in an enclosed area. They are opportunistic. But that also plays in our favor if you can bait them into a clearing with food. EDIT: since most are so big, it's been a problem keeping livestock fences secure.what do they eat? pine nuts? bugs? mushrooms? is there enough vegetation to sustain them? I always thought pine forests were pretty barren places.
That is what I would do. Start small and grow as my experience / knowledge grows. If it turned into a commercial venture as I hope, cashflow would go back into expanding and adding paddocks and fencing.Just starting out, I would make small lots, then expand as your needs change.
