2cents might be a slow responce, theirs been many a debates about baits on this forum, think that one was mentioned...
Had seen that hog wild, its been years, it was in Gander Mtn. not real sure of hog bait... On other side of creek were had deer food plot & used a timer corn feeder as dinner bell had found spot were hogs rooted up, fresh, poured it in were they rooted up... nothing... also hunted hogs with guy from FW at OSBWMA, i do lots of walking, worked best for me, he said he found hog bait garrented ta work... so at WMA found area small little slew, fresh sign, when he came down , he poured it were fresh sign was... Nothing, checked it daily after he left...
cheers ya have some cool videos flag

My buddy and me were talking about digging a hole to put corn in. I'm going use your recipe. The hogs come to the feeders daily (i agree is like a dinner bell) but, a group of hogs will clear the corn off the ground pretty quick.

I use strawberry jello , two boxes poured into the corn just like hansETEX but I just pour used cooking oil over it and stir it up. This said unless hogs find it in the time your hunting you won't see any! Also the gallon cans of corn that restaurants use is pretty good just as it comes out of the can and I sometimes add it to my bucket of deer corn, jello and used oil. I got to where I don't like putting it in a hole as the hogs will dig a MUCH bigger hole there.

Most reciepies pretty much all start out with the use of corn , it gives it a stronger oder... Biggest factor is were placed, like with stand placement, wind plays a difference, ya have ta be their at right time, & depends on how bad the hog problem is in area... flag

If the hogs are coming to the feeder like it is a dinner bell, then you know when to be there and be ready for them, right? Why are you worried about the hogs staying longer? Just how long does it take you to pull the trigger?

The hogs on my lease seldom came around when the feeders went off, more often they came around at some later hour after dark (11pm to 4 am) or sometimes just before dark. They seemed to have no schedule.

Think ya miss understood what he's saying... Dinner bell is something ya hear, not smell... Several years back, corn feeders were low, not spilling onto the spinner plate... noticed some big hog tracks around feeder, so shook corn down on feeder, next morning, feeder slung what little corn was on plate, could still hear it spinning, 100yrds away in my box stand, no corn falling... here cam a hog, dropped it...
Same feeder, on a tri-pod moved it over when tree feel, full of corn, 3 nights in a row hogs tipped feeder over... like the smell, sound attracts hogs... They smell the bait, yet they dont stay their 24-7... Rather when they feel its safe, usualy under the cover of dark...
If hogs are with in the smell or sound of bait, it lets them know their food available... they pattern hunters same way deer have... flag

Corn.
But I hang a piece of cloth drenched with vanilla extract at a place where the shot will be best.
It is too high for most hogs to reach but they come over to smell it, raise up their heads, and boom.

With just a scent I believe the hogs may come in once or twice but they realize there is nothing to eat and move on. The hogs may even not be attracted to that scent in the future as it is not associated with food.
Using something with a strong smell to bring attract needs to backed up with a real meal, and that is corn. If there is corn the hogs will keep returning without the strong attractant scent.

This is a good indication that they probably have plenty of other or better resources elsewhere that they are hitting before your place and that they are not living immediately local to your place. This is the same situation I usually have. They are going to get there when they get there.
