Setting in stand, hogs come eat corn.
Shoot hog or wait to see if deer come by later....

For me, it depends on a great many factors. Such as, is it in the rut? Are the big boys up and moving? If so, I probably won't shoot, unless they've run all the deer away. In which case, yes. Simply because as long as the hogs are there, the deer aren't.

If the hogs are random maybe you can give them a pass, if they are on the feeder every day you need to start firing at them and get rid of them, my deer are afraid of the pigs and will not come to the feeder even if pigs are in the area.

Tough call.

The deer where I hunt scatter as soon as the pigs come out. I generally shot the pigs, but in fairness I hunt with a suppressor. I've found that deer will still come out after I shoot a pig or two. With that said, if I'm hubting the rut and have big deer on cameras I'll usually refrain.

Had a hog at the feeder this am and I could have shot, single hog no trophy size, feeder had not gone off so I waited. Once feeder went off, the hog spooked out. Deer came on cue to the dinner bell, or I guess it was breakfast bell. If the hog had not moved on after feeder went off, he would have been shot.

In the afternoon hunts, if hogs show up they are likely going to be shot as they will keep the deer away. However, depends which feeder I am hunting as two adjoin a large wheat field and deer will still show to that, so probably would wait until last minute to make a shot on the hog. As mentioned above, lots to consider.

Having said all that, if I see a hog patterning my feeder, for me that means they show regularly either day or night, those hogs are going to be shot on sight. No time for hogs to become complacent with my feeders. Gotta keep em on their hooves!

Shoot the pigs every time. Ive shot a pig, and had deer come out to the feeder 5 minutes afterwards and sniff the dead pig. We have way too many pigs here to let them walk.

I put a bullet in as many as I can. I hate hogs and they will have already ruined the hunt when they show up, so I empty my rifle.

Shoot em. Eat em. They taste better than venison.

I always take my 357 cal Airgun. It's whisper quiet and drops them in their tracks. I have shot several and 2 min later deer still walk out. Never go to the blind without it. It's good out to about 175 yards.

Woah, never even heard of these. That is a hell of a pellet gun.

Fire away. I've had deer come in to the feeder not five minutes after shooting a hog DRT at the feeder. He looked at the hog for a couple minutes, then figured that he zigged when he should have zagged, and went on eating.

With a suppressor, I'm going to worry about it even less.
