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.

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.

Trapped!

No more rooting hay meadows for these critters.

interesting to see the different color feral pigs out of one litter.

The door trigger is that dark limb at angle in back of trap.   If one of the pigs touch it, the door will slam close with no chance of escape (other than crawling over top of fence).

Momma and a few pigs are in the back of the trap but the pigs have avoided dislocating the stick and triggering the trap door.

We’ll add more corn tomorrow and expect to see them return now that they are comfortable going in trap.

Be nice to rid our farm of this sow and her 13 pigs.

Feral Hog Control

hog-trap-022416

This long nose boar feral hog got caught in one of our hog traps.  He and some buddies had been rooted in a hay meadow.

Too heavy for me to lift up and put on atv, so I used a slide.    The slide folds for easy of carry on front of atv.

It sure saves straining my back.

Loaded and ready to roll.  In thirty minutes, he will be in cooler covered with ice.

Heavy rains flooded the trap.

She was released.

Apparently unharmed.

Important to check traps daily.

Hogzilla

 This big guy enjoys our corn but he will not dare enter the hog trap.

I wonder if the trap would hold him.

This guy can do lots of damage to our hay meadows.

I doubt he ever comes out of his thicket during daylight hours.
