When we used to trap and hunt a lot of them and they'd get shy,
I soak some 5 gal buckets with water and Cherry Jello powder in
them..It's inexpensive and they seem to really go nuts for the
red Jello's...Good luck w/ your Pop...we always enjoy our buds

Horse formula Sweet Feed Pellets work pretty well.

Saw this in the March issue of Cedar Post (TPWD new letter)

"Hog Bait by Mary Humphrey
If you don’t already have feral hogs on your property, it’s generally not a matter of “if” you’ll end up with them, but rather “when”.
Some folks see them as a huntable resource, while others consider them nothing more than a complete nuisance. There are various
methods of hunting and trapping that can be used to reduce the population of hogs. Box traps are an ideal way to trap multiple animals
as long as the trap is placed between two or more areas of high use such as rooting or bedding sites, along fencelines, or near
known hog trails. Hogs will eat most anything, but soured corn seems to work well for attracting hogs while limiting non-target
animals. Pre-baiting is essential so that hogs are going into the trap freely before actually setting the trap.

Soured corn recipe:
½ sack of corn
½ sack of cow cubes
6-pack of cheap beer
4-6 pkgs. of strawberry/cherry/raspberry jello
Dry yeast – enough of 1 pkg. to start mixture fizzing
½ gal. Evolved Habitats® Pig Out® liquid – adds sweet taste
(Ferment mixture in tub for 1 to 1-1/2 weeks) Can stagger production if feeding out of tubs."
