Default Hog Trapper Wanted

I'm looking to get rid of some hogs on my hunting lease in Wayne County ASAP.

I've got about 800 acres and hogs are coming to feeder every night. Based on camera pics it looks like there are 20-25 hogs in 2 or 3 sounders. Do what you want with them.

I prefer trappers cause some guys are bow hunting for deer already. Anyone interested?

Thanks
Nick

after one or two rounds they will be trap smart...make sure they use a big coral to catch as many at one time as they can

i know your not for running with dogs but one turn out and there gone if you try trapping them you will have someone in there every day for weeks.pick the right dog hunter and time the hogs out and one hunt will do it.on each sound.

Thanks for the info guys.

I guess if dogs are more effective then I'm open to that route just makes it a bit harder to coordinate things.

So any experienced dog hunter in SE GA want to run their dogs on these hogs?

Hunt them with dogs at night right now. Traps might work a time or two but then they will not touch em. Dogs at night.

To control your problem it most likely will take all of the above mentioned efforts...along with messing up a good deer hunt and shooting a pig once in a while. Do they only come when you feed or are they there all of the time?

I read somewhere the doggers put out a pile of corn..ran the dogs...on the way out the deer were eating out of the corn pile where the dogs had done their business...some proff right there running dogs on hogs doesn't effect deer like some think

Controlling a hog problem takes a multifaceted approach. The traps will help remove some, but the smarter hogs will learn to avoid them after a while. Shooting pigs will also remove some but has a lower impact on numbers. It does reduce their comfort level on your place and encourage them to move to the neighbors. Your members need to realize this is not a trophy situation, a dead 5 lb pig is still a dead pig. If you pass on him he'll just grow up.
Dogs will catch alot of hogs, more than traps after the pigs have become trap smart. They also greatly reduce the comfort level of pigs. Something dangerous that you can walk around (trap) is not as scary as something that will come find you.
A coordinated effort with surrounding clubs is your best bet. Dog hunting at night, during the week, and after deer season, reduces conflict. On 800 acres dogs may cross off property . Your neighbors probably have trail cams and they can see tracks. Prior understanding benefits everyone, and a coordinated plan is your best chance of success. Otherwise your neighbors just breed hogs to move back in when its quiet.
I love hog hunting, especially with dogs and encourage forethought to best control such problems without unnecessary conflict. Good luck with your efforts, let us know how it's going. There are still a lot of people on here that can offer some good advice.

I have hunted hogs for 30+ years, with and without dogs.Your deer season will not be the same if you use dogs, sure you'll see does and young bucks, but the mature bucks are going to get wise to the dog+man scent real quick. Offer a bounty per hog killed by your members, still cheaper than the corn the hogs are stealing. Or start a contest to see who can kill the most pigs, with an award at the end of the season you will be amazed how competitive deer hunters can get!

I know there are a lot more complex solutions you could choose, but is there an "off" switch on this feeder? They are coming there every night (& dominating your feeder) because you are providing them free groceries every night. Stop feeding them, & in a very brief period, they will leave for greener pastures. Hogs are very food-motivated, remove the source & they will find someplace else they need to be right now.

If you must hunt atop a feeder to fill your quota, & they come every night, you could park there one night with your weapon & a light, & when you hear gruntin' & squealin', flip on & open up!
