    Depends on your location. Do they get hunted much?
    You hunting over bait? Hunting near cover?
    Is there much sign?

    I have seen most activity around dusk and first light.
    Edited to add:
    Give more info on how your hunting. Pigs are pretty smart, but like all critters, can easily be duped if you can get around their nose/ears etc.

    Hogs are a deer built like a tank and with an nose better than a deer.

    here's my questions;

    1> are you hunting in an area noted for hogs
    2> are you playing the wind/scent controls
    3> are you using scenst or bait
    4> are you monitoring possible water and wallows
    5> do you see any tracks
    6> do you see any scat ( looks very much like humans crap and can contain hair from animals that it might eat that has hair on it )
    7> what nature foods are available
    8> do you see rutting marks


    You could also deploy a few game cams to "monitor" your areas of planned hunting at. As stated before, if they are stress out the hogs will be at bay.
