I have built a few of my own traps, and modified many more.
The skeptics that have never trapped a pig are all too quick to tell me what I was doing wrong. So here is three different approaches to catching pigs.
This first one was an old dog kennel that I took the door off of and swung the door from the top. It was free so what the heck. We catch multiples here all of the time including a few at 160 pounds
I was told that is was too small to fit a pig. Well here is four
We have some very stubborn pigs at one place. We have watched as they will start to go in a regular trap, they would go about half the way in and then back out. So we fashioned this big door trap from what we found lying behind the shop. The door is 4ft x 8ft. We have caught about 20 pigs in it. Including a few in the 150 pound range.
I have many game cam pictures of deer jumping out.
Now the All Season trap with a slight modification.
Why do they always flop over and die behind the door?
