Only thing I've found is hogs aren't crazy about pushing on wire or gates that are not smooth, assuming you wanna continuous trap style. I usually wire some plywood to the bottom half and spray w diesel. Once it's tripped, they seem more likely to push on it if it stinks and is smooth. Nice looking gate tho, I've not tried my hand at a saloon style. Keep us updated.

Positive thinking may not solve all your problems but it will annoy enough people to make it worth the effort.
