Strange find

Hogs didn't build that.

Didn’t think so, but I’m still at a loss on what did. He put a camera on this one too so maybe we’ll get a picture. Like I said I’ll be there in a few weeks. We are gonna release some quail and pheasant. We’ll spend the weekend so maybe we can figure it out.

It's somebody practicing building debris huts, IMO. They're not designed to sit up in, live in, or any of that. Just to be the minimum size to hold in body heat for someone who is laying down sleeping.
 
I think a hog may HAVE built that with the cold weather and all...The newborns would freeze to death other wise. I would be expecting a little boom in your piggy sightings. Looks like ya'll got a couple smart ones.

My buddy went back to his land yesterday and found another one. It was about half the size of the first one. When he walked up to it a small hog ran from the back of it. Not saying the hog was using it but it was either in it or right behind it. This one was about 250yds from the first one.
Post 39 said he saw sows do similar.
 
I've seen a good many hog nests. Most hogs that I've met lack weaving and thatching skills, and the planning and architectural skills to go offsite, obtain and trim saplings, carry them back to the site, construct a frame out of them, and then go collect thatching material and weave it neatly through the frame. :)

Hooves make it a little hard to weave. :bounce:
 
Or maybe it's a new race of superhogs. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
 
My votes hog nest. Only reason I say is i found one similar in the mountains in a recent clearcut. It used brush, briars and broom straw. About the same size to. Found a nest against a log one time that hog had pushed up brush and carried it from several yards away. It didn't look as neat though.
