I posted this in the Predator and Varmints, but I'll post it here too.

A friend, that I use to hunt pigs with, called this morning with a report. Seems he and another friend have gotten a new trap for hogs. Its the Jager Pro system. They set it up at the same spot where we built, but have since moved, a pen trap last spring. In the last 10 or so days, they have caught 32 pigs/hogs.

This same friend killed 40+ (I forget the exact number) pigs/hogs in this same area, last fall.

Total for the last 6 months or so is 70+ pigs/hogs.

Said he will send some pics.... when I get them, I'll post'em.

Sometimes yes, sometimes no. I have four round pens and a cage trap on that place. I catch the most when it rains after I’ve set them. Washes away all the scent I leave. I use corn oil as a scent killer. It works pretty well.

pete53,

I'll take that question: The under 100# pigs of both genders are GREAT eating & the "wee piggies", under 60# dressed, often go straight onto the BBQ pit whole for GREAT "pulled pork". Big sows are FINE, too.

I seldom bother even dressing out the BIGGEST boars, as critters have to eat too. = I shoot them & let them lay, unless I want the tushes for trophies.

I don't think that we have to worry about killing & "wasting" boars, as the supply seems to be growing & endless here in Texas.

Btw, I do not hunt pigs on our family farm, as "Oklahoma Doreen", out of Antlers, traps them & ships them to OK to fatten up/slaughter. = Every 90 days, she sends us a nice-sized check for our "cut".

yours, tex

in georgia, i don't think one can transport a wild caught pig. at least not without a blood lab test. not sure about that.

one would think there'd be a market for one-way trapped pigs to someone's home, camp, or processor.

it could be converted into fresh protein for a cookout, or to be frozen for later use in the winter.

everytime my chained dogs in the back of the truck smelt hogs in mid. ga. they went wild.

clearly, if i was in a fancy, smancy subdivision with expensive scrubbery, i'd want help.

We aren’t supposed to catch and release wild pigs to other locations here.

We trapped 1 3 or 4 years ago that the game warden estimated 400 plus. He was 32 inches at the shoulder and almost 5 foot long. We try not to touch anywhere with our hands where we have touched the hide. We skinned him and gutted him then put him in ice for 5 days. Adding ice and draining out the bloody water daily. We usually keep the loins whole and grind the rest. Sometimes we will smoke the hams. Each1 of his nuts was big as a softball. We kept those. We parboiled them about 15 or 20 minutes. Skinned the tough outer skin off. Sliced them thin dredged in egg and seasoned flour then pan fried. It was the best pork we had in a while. We usually catch6-15 a year. Sometimes they will have a bad musky smell just dont touch the meat when you have touched the hide. Ice them down and you're good to go

In Texas we can trap or kill them 24-7-365. We aren't supposed to move them live. I do know a couple guys with pitbulls and pit crosses that catch them and put them in covered livestock trailers and take them home. They will feed them corn or hog pellets whichever is cheapest at the time for about 30 days and then butcher them and then sell the meat. One guy catches them and sells them to a trophy ranch where they are turned loose and hunted/shot by doctors and lawyers from Dallas inside a high fenced ranch.
Personally when we have caught small ones in a trap, we would feed them a couple weeks but have never transported them live. If iced down for a few days they generally are very lean and taste just like farm raised pork.

I didn't tell wife or daughter what it was till after they ate it. They both thought it was very good. After I told them my daughter turned white and told me if I ever did that again she.would kill me in my sleep.😁 I dont think she really would.🤔
