Welcome to Ohio Outdoors Forum! :smiley_bril:
Yep, seen them climb trees many times. They're part of the squirrel family (rodents), so it makes sense that they can climb. I've raised them as pets and they can climb nearly anything that they can get their claws/nails hooked into.
I took my brother bowhunting for g-hogs and he shot his first g-hog with a bow and it was in a tree. :smiley_blink:
I noticed that you're in Coshocton county. The g-hogs there are strange rangers. I was in the Woodbury Wildlife Area, hunting turkeys and seen g-hogs wondering around in the dark at 4:00 a.m. :smiley_chinrub: I found one sleeping on the double yellow line, just outside of Warsaw. I got out of my car, picked him up by the nap of the neck and all he did was growl at me. Nuts! I set him down in the ditch and he walked off into the dark. :smiley_armscrossed:
Never seen anything like that...out of g-hogs, anywhere else. They usually sleep at night.
Good hunting, Bowhunter57
