I want hogs but I don't want them to scare away deer. How do I keep both of them coming to the feeders?

You can't. Run two feeders. One with hog panels for deer and one without for piggies.

Feeders in the pen, hog pipe 50 yards away.

YES! 2 feeders for sure.. But when you put up the hog panels I would check to make sure you know how far your feeder is throwing and set the panels a few yards past.. If hogs get a hint of corn they will do their best to tear that fence down!

The hog pipe is a good idea but you have to fill it often.

Hogs will chase away a good portion of the deer activity, and destroy any patterns you have at that feeder once the hogs move in.

I mainly bowhunt so how far do you think the feeders need to be from the tree stand?

JK, I would do just hand thrown on ground or use some type gravity feed strapped to a tree. Distance is yours, what's your comfortable shooting distance?

We have converted completely to gravity feeder because of this. Honestly I think hand throwing is better for bucks than a feeder. I have seen more bucks hand throwing corn before I put feeders up. The problem with this is once the hogs find it your done. Throw the corn out and it will be gone in 3 hours because of the hogs. That’s why we went to the redneck blind t post gravity feeders.

I agree with Agieman... I have seen way more bucks by hand-corning than I ever have at a feeder...

That's a tough one.. maybe use soured corn in one pile and regular in another. Hogs will eat both but they'll like the soured corn more..

This is exactly what I am dealing with now. The boar hogs started moving in a couple years ago and now it seams that the remains have taken up residency on the property. I am guessing the third litter was dropped earlier this summer and they are here to stay.
The deer activity at the feeders has dropped significantly this year.

Anyone selling a hog trap near Azle??
