 So how to you trap a boar. We had a bunch get loose from a pay to hunt place near my place.  Been hunting them with a rifle, but i can't shoot enuff off them to do any real damage to the population thats here now. These are the Russian variety nad they are tougher than a piece iron to kill. I shot one three times with my 300 Weatherby and still had to use my .44 Mag to shoot it when it charged me.  The hogs are really beating the deer herds out around here. The sows really are good eatin'. I gotten 8 so far this year and would really like to get alot more. Any help you boys from down south could give me would be greatly appreciated.

 I've seen heavy wire cages set out, with corn for bait. Sometimes, there's several hogs in the trap at one time. The Boars are harder to trap, because the smaller hogs get inside the trap first ??

Below is a site with a couple of trap plans and catchin'/baitin' instructions...I prefer the square trap with the swing door...this is the way we did it when I farmed in South Georgia

http://www.hogtrapping.com/traps/about-hog-trapping.html

We had six traps and would catch and move about a dozen younger pigs to to a pen behind the barn...give them all the yeller corn they could eat for a couple of weeks (to get rid of some of the wild, swampy, muddy taste!!) and then butcher them all at one time...most went in the freezer, but, always put 2-3 on the big smoker on the trailer and invited all the neighbors for a "Southern Style Piggy Roast" ;D ;D complete with brought pot luck dishes, "Shine", homebrew, pickin' and grinnin'....a wonderful way to spend a weekend 8) 8)

We have a small but growing population just a few miles west of me here in Michigan.  It seems that a group bought 80 acres 10-15 years ago and fenced it in.  They then let go 30 wild hogs for their own hunting.  They left them to their own means for 3-4 years.  When they came up to hunt, they discoveried that a large tree had fallen on the fence sometime during the 3-4 years and all of the hogs were gone.  ::) They told noone but a few years ago people started to see them.  The idiots are protecting as they see a new big game animal to hunt.   >:(The DNR wants them all killed.  They are about eight miles away as the crow flies as near as I can figure.  But I probably will see them soon.  I raise sweet corn and vegetables so they are really not welcome.  I will shoot them with a vengance. ;)

I went camping/hunting/horseback riding a couple years back.  Called the USFS ranger to confirm creeks were passable before driving all the way across Missouri.  He asked us to shoot any we saw on site even if we didn't want them.  Just shoot and let them lay was better than not shooting them.  We were near Potosi.  Didn't see any but saw lots of evidence.

  Got some Prime land close by, that the Goobermint "owns".??  It's getting overrun with Hogs. Can't Bowhunt 'em, cause the Horsey people went in and make riding trails, FOR A CONCESSION, and they are afraid Bowhunters would shoot the horses ???

  Right now, all along I-95, you can see hogs during the day, occasionally, and the grass is all being rooted up. Ever see ACRES of grass rooted up??

  Wait till they start getting run over and causing people to die.  ::) ::)

They say Mr. Deere invented the steel plow, but the first plow was a hog snout. ;)

 I know one thing, you got a bad green briar patch and want it gone, fence it and put in a few snouts. Briars don't stand a chance.  ;D ;) :) :)

Those snouts can be put to good use.  I never till my garden--I use the heavy mulching method.  Every 3 or 4 years, I like it stirred up to start over.  I run a hot wire around the perimeter and put 4 to 6 feeders in for the fall.  After they are gone, I either rake it all back out flat or if there is time, I put the chickens in there and scatter grain on the high spots and let them rake it back out flat.  Put down a few inches of horse fertilzer and cover with either leaves or straw or moldy hay and she's ready to plant.  If they happen to make a low spot that gets compacted, a nice couple gallons of ashes from the stove will fix that too.
