Triple C ...... after consulting Google thinking I was looking for a brand trap ... are you referring to the figure 6 homemade assembly with t posts and hog panels ? If so, lots of folks do those. Even on a small scale with not many panels. They work.

Definitely keep a cell cam on a trap in order to know what's going on.

I'm pretty sure that's what he was talking about, I'd like to build one on our lease this spring, I'll leave the panel propped open for a couple weeks to get them used to it,, and only close it when I go up on Friday evening to stay the weekend. I've just got to get one of the other guys to help me with it. Shouldn't be too hard to drive those t-posts in the ground with all this rain we keep getting !

Yessir...That's exactly what I'm talking about.

CCC, that looks terrific, I have seen a hog over there though they may bust thru that fence, I think one of our members killed him back in season, but if not, he may damage that fence ;)

Anxious to see what happens with these. Got design from one of the TX Universities that posted a how-to video on hog exclusion corrals. That's welded 34" hog panels so it's gonna take a bruiser to damage one of those panels. Supposedly, the round design is much more damage resistant that than a square pen. I'll post pics after we get a camera on a couple of em.

I pulled two feeders last week along with SD cards from cams on those feeders and also cams on three food plots. Several thousands pics from the five cameras and only one pic of a hog.

Count your blessings while you can. They will eventually be there in mass.
I know. We've had them and we've killed some of them. Neighboring properties on both sides had hog doggers out two weeks ago to catch and kill pigs.

Meanwhile, we didn't see any during deer season and, as I shared in my earlier post, they didn't show on the five trail cams I had running.

I wish I could get them to disappear all together. Don’t think that’s happening. Lots of daylight pictures though.

I've pressured these enough now that they are pretty much nocturnal. I used to be able to see several in the evenings before dark.
