I saw three massive hogs on my feeder before i put a fence up. Since then I haven't seen any. I am sure they are out there but they don't need to break into my side because some of the two acre places throw corn out for deer but don't hunt them. I really think this place has great potential to be a sanctuary as you said. Me and the girlfriend are more than willing to go bow only as that's what we planned on anyway. This year she will probably take one with a gun because she hasn't shot her bow enough, but next year we aren't bringing guns out. The only exception to that would be our 11 year old. She has never shot a deer and until she gets good with a bow we will let her shoot one. The overall goal though is for everyone, kids included to be bow only. I don't think the gun shots will affect them though because we have a gun range less than a mile away, so they are used to the sound. Also from what I have been told, no one really hunts out there. I hunted all weekend and did not hear a shot close by. We are putting in a food plot this summer and plan to feed corn and protein all year starting now.
