Feral Hogs as dangerous game is a myth, in most instances they tried mainly to avoid humans. My experience says as long as you use common sense then Feral hogs are only little more dangerous than deer. Personally I do not view them as dangerous game. Just large animals with the potential to be dangerous if wounded or there's no way out. Doesn't mean that one absolutely won't charge, particularly if wounded.
