We clean one every now and then, but mostly coyotes eat big sometimes. I caught-killed over 170 last year. The reproduce so fast, I'm not sure we are keeping up. If we manage to kill them out on our lease they move in from across the fence.

Wow, pretty colors in some of them. We started making some "6" traps last year with t posts and cattle panels. The most we ever caught at one time was 12. But we don't have nearly the population in louisiana that texas has.

There must be a big multi-colored boar pig out there. Sows were black. We trapped a big all white male last year.

Yes, there are pigs under every bush here in Texas. Catching them is a ton of fun.

Dang, I thought our lease had them bad, pics of a dozen pigs at a time are common.

Thats a pile of pigs

How big a property?


also, in some of those pics, is that ticks or blowflys?

1000 acres, has year around creek. I'm sure that's blow flies, it was warm that weekend. I'm pretty sure we have so many is the water. They have to have it to cool down when it's hot. You don't really see that many until you put a camera by your feeders. I don't put cameras out anymore, got tired of pig pics. We are getting a lot of Aoudads now. There are a few Elk also. A damn turkey under every bush too. 50 turkeys in a bunch is not unusual. Deer population is fair. I think there would be more deer if we didn't have so many pigs.

Don't k now what other people use but we use sour corn, fill a 5 gal. bucket about 3/4 full with corn then fill with water and set it in the sun and it will get real stinky in a couple of days, we keep about a dozen buckets working all the time, we have 6 traps that we keep working from the end of deer season till deer season starts again.

some days we get 20 pigs others only 2 or 3 , pigs are smart, so we keep moving our traps every few days, look for pig sign set a trap close by, water really helps. remember pigs are predators ,they kill the hell out of fawns, and eat Quail and other nesting birds like candy. when they can't find anything else to eat, they eat each other, catch em and kill em, that's what we do.

44mc, what you say is right, unless we have no activity after a week or so, we put a camera on each trap hopefully to see what 's going in that location ,some locations just don't work out , Rio7

I have trap gates built in the feeder pens plus one steel trap. Rubber boots and scent killer helps. Don't drive right up to trap either, they can smell the carbon monoxide left by 4 wheelers etc.

I made a pass by feeder in the Ranger one day before I climbed in stand. Several deer walked over the place I had driven, jumped in feeder pen, stayed a while. A bit later a group of piggies came through the fence headed to feeder, when they crossed over the place I drove, they turned double back flips, hauled ass back the way they came. We park a hundred yards away now, rubber up and scent kill. Catch a lot more.

Prop open your push gate with a stick about 18" long, I did that at first, but now use a 3' 2x2. I have a 1/16 cable from 2x2 to bowl under feeder, then to back to other side of pen. This lets more get in before they trip cable.

The enclosed trap has a feeder on top, it goes off once a day. They get used to coming every day. We set the traps when we go to lease. Hope to catch some Memorial weekend. I sure like catching the SOB's. Like shooting cshit out of them even more.

I'm gonna try the diesel in the corn next weekend. It may help hide our scent also.

Diesel in the corn is the bomb. Supposedly if you catch them when they are small and castrate them they will go back where they come from.

Nothing stayed in the corral, and noticed in the photos, I had forgotten the hog wire !!!!

Now we're in business !!!!!!! Them boys sure love that blue Kool Aid I put on my soured corn. 31 hogs and counting so far. Thanks again Hanco !!!
