Does anyone trap pigs? I trap quite a few in my deer feeder pens. I also have a couple drop gate traps. I sometimes catch 20 in a weekend.

Visited the King Ranch and one of their feedlots several years back. They thought they might have a pig problem and trapped 1,300 the first night.

It was one of those lots that can handle about 40,000 cattle, so a little feed missing from the bunks was hardly noticed. In addition, there was some French market for such fare that was priced above our domestic hog prices.

Until we lost our lease a few years back on a particular piece of property, we trapped 50-80 each year. After a little trial and error, we found that figure 6 traps using four cattle panels worked the best for us. We lost some of the smaller ones occasionally but usually my son and his 12ga could take care of the little ones that managed to squeeze out and run.

This was the biggest day we have ever had. Caught pigs in all three pens one morning.

Bomar learned me how to post pics.

One we caught Sunday and one caught in top of trap gate last year. I plan on doing a lot of pig trapping when I retire.

As I posted on the shoulder shot thread, we went to buckshot a lot less richetees, easier on the panels and more lead in the air, which is the purpose with a pen full, get as much lead in there in the shortest amount time possible. AND it's fun!!!

I like traps because, they work while you are sleeping, while you are drinking beer, while you are hunting another stand. I wish I had money for the traps that send you texts, lets you drop gate with phone.
