 Boar Brook State Park?
I was out mountain biking this afternoon in Bear Brook State Park, and met a bowhunter who was heading back to his truck. We chatted for a bit, and he said that he'd seen what he believed to be pig (aka wild boar) tracks on one of the trails.

I havent seen any sign out there, but I know that there is an established and growing population in NH. Couple weeks ago I saw an area on the Mt Langdon trail that maybe had been rooted up ... couldn't figure out what else it might have been. Sure wasn't squirrels :shock:

Anyone else seen any boar sign, or direct sightings?

Interesting article -

Wow I didn't realize they were already here! I saw on ABC news a few yrs ago about the problem they have in the south and that they were "migrating north."

That is pretty depressing, given their reproductive rates and hardiness. Langdon trail ha? I'll have to keeo an eye out since I live in "grafton" county which was on the list. I must say that would be pretty weird to be riding my horse in the woods and come across a wild boar. Although that would be highly unlikely since they're nocrurnal and likely stay well hidden.

I'm sad they're in BB! That would really suck to hit one in your car though.

Not good.

Corbin Park is a private game hunting preserve in Grantham and three adjacent towns.

Various animals have escaped over the years because of trees falling taking down fences. There has traditionally been a belief here in NH that the feral pig population comes from escapees.
