hogs will indeed eat fish(tested it) When I first heard of tuna scenting, I thought that was funny, but it works. I don't have a need to use it. I have toads and lizards if needed, both are natural dietary items for our hogs. But it surely will not hurt to scent with tuna juice. To state that it may, is purely theoretical and arguementative. As there has never been any evidence that it is harmful, in any way. If you like salmon, great.
As stated by several large scale hog breeders, its actually rare to have to scent rodents. I work with both westerns and kennerlyi and its rare with kennerlyi as well.

I have to ask, is there any physical or behavioral adaptions that indicate hognose of any kind, can catch fish. Has anyone seen one or more, attempt to catch fish? Or do they simply feed on dead fish if they cross paths. Again, As anyone observed hogs hunting in water, or the waters edge?
In my aprox 200 field observations, I found one hog that had algae on its back that indicated it went in the water, and tracked one into shallow water and it crawled about 30' in shallow water, then went back to land away from water. In my experience, its common to find hogs hunting in higher sandy areas near or away from water.
