Tusk Differences in Boar and Sow Feral Hogs

This blog post is a bit more scientific and serious in nature.

At our hunting camp recently, it was "debated" whether sows have tucks (exaggerated canines) like boars.  I have not seen enough dead, older sows to really know.  (By the way, EVERYTHING from rifle calibers to chainsaw techniques to grilling to game cleaning is "debated" at the camp.)

I found this cool Australian scientific paper which discusses aging boars and sows with the following pictures.



So now we know.

A link to the PDF of the article is found below.
