Pigs

rrbgttrrbgtt Posts: 6,753 Admiral
Pigs have started tearing the place up. We set the trap up and have one in it this morning.

Garrett and I are going to build a pen/trap with a continuous catch door this evening and see if we can get most of them.

    Any trap plans you care to share? We have a very big pig problem going on.

    Not yet, but I'll send you photos of it when we're done. The trap above is just a regular guillotene door trap.

    We are just going to build a 10'x10'ish pen and add a continuous trap door to one corner.

    YouTube has some good videos of the traps you are talking about.

    They'll get smart fast with those small traps. Good luck!

    We'll be shooting and trapping. Then if necessary, dogs... I haven't had a hog problem on my place in 15 years, but they are back with a vengence.

    The vicinity of the tree I'm currently sitting at Bull Creek is 100% hog (and deer) free. Unfortunately.

    On our property they are tearing up ground especially under the big oaks rooting up the acorns. One of the game cams shows 2 huge 200 # sows with 15-20 piggies.

    I've killed 4 in the last week. Every time I take one out, it seems I see even more on the game cam. They are flat out tearing our property up!

    One of my courses is being torn up bad the last couple of weeks. Funny how the cat tracks disappeared about the same time. Hopefully the gators will put a dent in their numbers though. I've counted 7 gators so far and have about 20 more lakes to check. Hog tracks and rooting everywhere. If I could shoot out here without having a problem...

    No dog tracks either which is rare for this account.

    Hogs are going crazy out in Hendry county off of Keri road. they tear the fields up so bad the swamp buggy beats the hell out of you just going 1 mph. Must be very nocturnal, rarely see one during the day.

    Corn Pile + Poison...eazypeezee.

    Another question...Idunno if it is legal or not but I see them rooting around the banks at low tide in between Keywaddin and The Mainland all the time. I've even encountered big ole boars crossing the channel.

    Can I legally shoot these critters from the boat and bring 'em home? Bow or Gun?
