Drop Hog Trap – 041117

We have found this drop trap to be very effective for feral hogs.   It appears the

advantage of this type trap is that the hogs can see all the way under the trap.

And they aren’t required to enter a small trap door.   We caught 18 pigs in the

first week of activation in another drop trap.  It’s built using three 16′ utility panels.

A small mess is lines the inside to prevent small pigs from escaping.

The diameter is 15′.  We use a Harbor Freight winch to life the trap.   Two 20′ stalks

of 1 1/2′ square tubing if part of the lifting.  The trigger is an upside down cross built out

of 1″ lumber.   Corn is placed under the trigger.  A hog bumps the trigger and the

trap drops before he can escape.

  1. I ran across your video on youtube and had to look you up to see if you had any more videos of this. Is it still being successful for you? Y’all did a good job with it. I’ve been trying to research a way to do a suspended trap from the air. Yours and Boarbuster’s is the only thing that I have found. Keep up the good work.
