What are the hogs coming to? Garden plot or food plot?
Put up a trail cam and see if you can pattern them as to what time they come.

You might train them with corn, if they are stuck on the area.

Usually starting around February all the acorns are gone and with deer season out most people aren’t running feeders and hogs are rambling all over looking for food. They will root under oak trees looking for hidden nuts and on our club they always root under cedar trees real bad. If you want to hang around put out a feeder or corn if not they’ll usually move on through if they can’t find food

Sign of hogs started about 2 weeks ago..I have a tripod stand on my property..may put out some corn and hunt.
 
Get a cell cam. I started using one over a bait pile the last few months and it works pretty well. You can try and pattern them using a normal trail cam but if they’re like our pigs they’ll hit the bait between 8pm and 6am, no pattern what so ever.

I’ve had them that showed up so regular,they were on time,like Employees...then poof...gone for a week,or two. I have a group now that comes to a Corral trap of mine about once a week. Some go in the trap,some don’t. One night,all of them went into the trap & I didn’t wake up to set it off. They are always erratic & unpredictable. Aggravating.

I’m not sure if you are planning on Trapping,or shooting them? IF you are thinking of trapping(to try & get rid of all of them).....do the trapping first! If you shoot them,you’ll get a few & the rest run off to breed again..🙁
 
Corn, blue Kool aid some cheap beer and let it ferment in a bucket. Hunt over it in a few days dumped out in a hole. If you can find powdered molasses, that is crack for hogs.
