Bingo, and yes, I heard about that. I have seen six axanthics and have kept four. I have also seen some oddball near axanthics. The bottom two are post lay normal femaIes. I was sworn to secrecy by a friend. But now that more have been found. Theres no need to keep this a secret. Its odd, because everyone knew about it anyway. The problem is, one well known hog spot is being raped to death by people hoping for hets or something. If folks only took axanthics that would be great, but they are taking every hog and running over more, the pic of the dead neonates is from herpers looking for axanthics. Tell your friend to F---ing slow down.
They are also not just from one place. Do you know what sex your friends hog is. As I have 1.3. The first one I found was a large female, took pics and let it go and told my friend. Then he and I went and found a neonate male. Which he kept and lost. Then I found 4 more. I wish he did not lose that male.
The lite one in my hand is a male, and I also have a similar lite female, that's a last years neonate. She is pounding food like crazy. I did not show her. The other two are females. The largest is 240 grams. So next year it will be possible to prove this gene out.

The other female is smaller, 17 inches when I found her and is almost twenty now. But not up to weight, when I found her she weighted 97 grams. Also I found her in the field, not on the road. Most of my field work is away from that site, thank goodness.
Since all the herpers attacked that spot(half of Europe has been there) I have moved my attention away from there.
Please tell your friends to only take axanthics(if they are lucky enough to find one) because in a short time, they will be available as captive hatched. So no need to take everything with a turned up nose. Also, a hunting lic is required and there is some question about taking from game and fish sites, I will be asking G&F about that soon.
Lastly, can your friend post a pic. Thanks
