Went to the ranch last weekend. Was driving to one of the stands and noticed one of my hog traps along the way.

Backed up... and lo and behold, the trap had mysteriously set itself and added corn to itself.

Thank goodness I had driven by and seen the two hogs that were in it.

Was a very nice poacher out there taking care of me.

Sorta brings a tear to yer eye don't it?

:P

You have GOT to set up a hidden game cam on that puppy. For the entertainment of the THF. Make sure and leave a Thank You note, the way your momma raised you.
Great story.

lol.. right? I have like 9 cameras out there. One had dead batteries, but I did not have one on that trap. I'll pick up another half dozen cameras this year and set some up along the roads etc and traps.

Then, pictures for all!

I have found my traps empty with blood from where someone took a pig. But never has anyone reset and fed one for me.
You clearly have a complete different class of poacher.

Dig some *big* holes around the trap, cover, and wait for pics. If your cams do video - even better.
