I have hit this property a few times now and a few with my buddy, Dave. Fewer hogs appear to be showing up and with taking out a pregnant sow, I expect even less will be showing up in the future...

Hoggin' has been very slow on the properties I take care of. Most normally active areas where I have feeders and traps aren't even showing any tracks. Hard to tell why?

I want to believe hunting pressure has something to do with it. On our newer properties, we are still seeing a goodly number of hogs. On some of the older places, like you, we aren't even hardly finding sign. Even some of the ag fields we have been hitting hard are void of hogs right now.

A lot of the properties that we have pressured over the last few years are becoming devoid of hogs. To be certain, we have killed a good many. On newer properties, we still see decent numbers. It is nowhere near what it once was. Results are being produced, whatever that may be. LOL...

Hogs, like deer, or any critter hunted learn ta patter hunters. Learned this in texas while hunting leases. excecative hunting, sit around & wait. Were i was raised, different type hunting.
In another thread you mentioned hogs on nieghboring land.

confused2 yould think neighboring land owners would notice your efforts & the dent youve made in the hog population.
At small area had my set up, hogs followed the creek, the neighbor's dogs kept hogs moving, hard ta pattern even with my 4 cams. Best chances wete when first start showing up on cames, i rotated checking cams.
Your Blessed with having permission ta several large areas ta hunt. My hunting was more for grillen & chillen. Didn't have the hog problems like area you live. WMA was me tagoto areas for hog hunts.
Me caveman days had 1,100 acre lease, huntsolo, rofl i was hog hunten, when hog hunten wasnt cool. always heard hog gonna get ya, 99.9% of time they gonna avoid hunters. Wounded hog most dangerous.
Seeing more & more hog hunters taking advantage of the NV & Thermal. cheers it beats old fashion night vission, flashlight off wondering about the woods.
As many have said : hogs will be back, ease off on preaser, & if neighboring land owners put preasure on, hogs gotta eat.
Stay at it. up on videos.
