Just finished up a three week work trip and now packing up for 5 days of camping out on the lease... No elec, no water, no phone, or wifi. Can't wait!

I hunt pigs the rest of the year, but was thinking of taking a few while I'm out there this go around at night. New lease in a high pressure county (Caldwell). You guys think that may spook some of the deer? Am I better off waiting until I've filled my buck tag. Can hunt the hogs all year anyhow....

I kill hogs anytime they show up since they always run the deer off of the corn around my blinds. If you have a lot of hogs you won't have many deer. I don't have hog problem now because of trapping and killing them everytime I get the chance. I also have feed pens around all my feeders.

Agree with above. The deer aren't going to be around if there are hogs. Shoot every one of them!!

I'd shoot them.

Deer are weird. You can spook them by farting 200 yards away, but it's not unusual for the to pop out completely unalarmed 2 minutes after I shoot a doe or something.

I never liked the idea of shooting pigs at night during deer season. Always figured it was draw unnecessary game warden attention thinking I'm poaching deer at night.

My buddy killed a pig right at legal light, sent me a pic. 20 minutes later he sends a pic of his 8 point he shot.

Opening weekend had 3 does at feeder. They all left as a large pig arrived. Pig settled in for a long visit and I invested in 150 grains to make it his last visit. 30 minutes later, With the pig still on the ground where he fell, I had deer back at the feeder. Pigs are a "shoot on sight" target on our lease.

Same here as most of the above, shoot 'em. I've watched deer come in and smell a hog laying on the ground under the feeder then act as if it weren't even there. It's almost as if they enjoy seeing a dead hog.

The only time I have seen a deer go to a feeder with pigs was a very mature, dominate buck who owned the place. We fenced 4 feeders and finally have deer going to them daily instead of avoiding them.

Shoot them all. I've had deer come in 10 minutes after shooting a pig that was still on the ground.

Shoot them dang pigs anytime, they run our deer off around the farm here, we have no
mercy for them..... Remember a 9 month old sow will breed with her father or any local male, and the party and population starts all over again!


Get the night vision hardware out and have fun!
