The corral trap has been locked open for several days. The hogs have become accustomed to coming and going. Come in and get a bite to eat, then depart. But today, the trap is activated. Trigger is in back of trap. They just need to bump it and the door slams shut. No escape.
No more rooting hay meadows for these critters.

Yes, we were surprised to see an Axis deer photo on our game camera. At first, we thought is was whitetail fawn. Later TPWD identified is as an Axis doe deer. Axis deer are considered exotic and normally are found on high fence ranches. This one had escaped and paid us a visit. Hope she stays around.
The structure behind the deer is one of our ‘corral hog traps’. The No Trespassing sign is for deer.

We’ve caught hogs that weighed over 250 pounds and
they could not escape.
Somehow, she squeezes between drop gate and
edge of trap. The left side of the trap appears
Two pigs remain in trap.
Later they escape.
We will drive “T” post along edge of trap
to prevent future escapes.
