Had 17 of them in one trap and two managed to get out during all the confusion after the shooting started. I managed to give away 3 more before the cleaning and skinning started.

That's a truck load for sure. How do you like that Ruger American Rifle?

I love the Ruger Americans...great shooting rifles. I have lots of options, but the American's hold their own against about anyone. I have some traditional square traps, and one fair sized round one made from cattle panels. I caught this bunch off of fm2909 east of Canton. I keep traps working on a couple of properties around Canton year around.
I normally just take the hind legs off of the porkers and occasionally backstrap off of a larger sow. I freeze up the legs and give them away, as I end up with a lot more than the wife and I can use. The majority of them end up going to a muzzle loader club I belong to. I take some in coolers to the shoots once a month and they get shared with many people.

I've had one of my traps down for about a yr. now. Earl the welder has it, and was supposed to be doing some mods to it. He just called me yesterday and said it was done. I'm just getting too old to be building my own anymore.

Lost another one this morning! Pulled up next to a 4x8 trap I have that has no top. I leave it there as it's in a pretty busy deer area, and I hate catching deer in them. A good 200 pounder started going nuts in the trap, and trying to get out the top. Before I could get a pistol into play, he managed to clear his way out and into the woods he goes. All we had left was a really aromatic trap...boy was he a stinker. He had dug about a foot of sand out of the bottom before we got there, but when they get all worked up they can do some amazing stuff. It takes a pretty athletic pig to clear a 48 inch cattle panel.

Even losing a few, you are doing a helluva job!
