the hog traps made out of 4 cow panels works great. Make a circle with one panel that overlaps. The panel acts like a natural spring. Tie it open to get them used to pushing their way in. Then bait and remove the tie. they push their way in and the panel snaps back keeping them from going out. Can catch a bunch in one session,

Use the 60" tall utility panels that have 4x4 6 Guage wire, keeps the smaller pigs in.

Build two and you can have a figure 69 trap.





Best of both worlds !

Depends on your type of soil,4 feet for sandy soil, 6 feet for clay. Wire the panels to the inside of the T-post, bottom middle and 4 feet off ground, leave the top 12" free, so when a hog try's to climb out the panel bends over and the hog drops back in the trap. You can prop the entrance open with a short 6" stick,it will drop out of the way when a big pig goes in.

I had a made one in a similar fashion, trying to find pics of it. Very simple but effective design. T-post, panels, wire to secure panels to post, and a trip wire is all mine was made out of. Trap essentially looks like a #9 before it is sprung.

And the reason you need to bring lots of ammo is because you'll have nights like this one:



17 of the bristly beasties in one trap, and they are running around all over the place, so the "one shot, one kill" thingy don't quite work!
