    Default It's a start

    So me & a bud have a hunting lease off SR46, we have had a hog problem the last 2 years & it seems worse this year,
    not quite as bad as Ketchn.
    We really only bow hunt it as that is what the land owner has requested & it is very thick woods, no open fields at all.
    Since they move at night mostly and shooting them 1 by 1 can take a while we asked if we could put a trap out.
    The landowner agreed and said to remove as many as you want. My old trap had fallen apart & was beyond repair, so I bought a new one and set it up. At first, we left doors propped open & let them go in and out for a few days. Then with a special homemade
    corn mix attractant, we set the trap & BAM the next morning 4 little piggies got caught. We have a lot more to catch and
    I'm sure some will nearly be impossible to trap & will have to be hunted but it's a start to try to end the nuisance.
    These should be tasty and all were sows so I look forward to eating them as well.

    The finest gift you can give to any fisherman is to put a good fish back, and who knows if the fish that you caught isn't someone else's gift to you?"

    I let the trap sit for a week but according to the camera they were back in it the next day even after taking out those 4.
    I left the door propped open & feed it up so they would get comfortable again, hopefully we catch some bigger ones this
    time. I'm gonna try the special homemade corn mix again, I'll let you know how it works & you may want to try it.

    I was once told that a pig caught in a trap releases adrenaline (or something like that) and it ruins the meat. Is there any truth to that? Well done, by the way!

    Not to my Knowledge on ruining the meat, I've caught a bunch of hogs in traps and ate the majority of them. They are as good as the ones I've shot hunting. Now the big boars can be rank sometimes.
