Abstract

Wild boars (Sus scrofa) are increasing in abundance and geographic distribution throughout North America. Our objectives were to determine daily and hourly activity patterns. We placed global-positioning-system collars on 25 wild boars from two sites in southern Texas. Wild boars at both sites displayed highly nocturnal activity patterns, and during the dormant and early growing season, activity increased with rising temperatures.
