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.

He has been very careful

hog-042316It is Saturday night at 8:22 pm and

a big boar hog is inside a corral trap.

He has avoided the trap door trigger.

+++++

hog-042416It is now Sunday night at 8:33 pm.

The big boar hog is back inside

the trap eating corn and still avoiding the trigger.

We are expecting him to make a

mistake in next couple nights.

I caught this big sow rooting

hog-sow-.223-041816She was in hay meadow behind us.

Along with a buddy, they were

digging for food.

The Ruger .223 American compact

converted her from a rooting destructive pest

to meat for pan sausage.

It isn’t easy to trap feral pigs

They are back and I think it’s about over for them.

That’s it.  The trap door has slammed shut. They are captured.   No longer will they be rooting our hay meadows or eating out deer corn.   It’s over for them.

What’s this!   Where are my captured pigs?  The mesh size on the cattle panels is 6″ X 8″.   Somehow these pigs were able to escape by crawling through those small openings.  In less than fifteen minutes from the time they were captured, they all escaped.

Plan B?

Snapped Snare Cable by Hog

hog-snare-snapped-011816

This 1/8″ cable was snapped by a big boar feral hog.   The snare was around the feral hog’s neck.   This big boar hog was fresh in the snare as he was extremely active.  When he took a seemingly last desperate lunge, the cable snapped and away he went into the brush.

one of these guys made a mistake

MOULTRIE DIGITAL GAME CAMERA

They walked all around the trap.   Ate the corn at the mouth of the trap, but would not enter.  They are encouraging the use of Tannerite.

And then the temptation was just too much for this guy.

Trapping is not efficient method of controlling feral hogs.  Oh you might catch one out of twenty or so, but that’s losing ground when considering total numbers.

Grandson with hogzilla

garrett-hogzilla-081815

Grandson was hog hunting in his 15′ ladder stand when this big momma came by for a visit.  He dropped her with one shot to her ear using .22 long rifle from thirty yards.

We estimated her weight at 200+ pounds.  Nice hog to remove from the farm.
