No deer at 1 of my feeders for 2 months, but coons and pigs there every day and night. Lots of pooled water around my feeder after all the rains this year, seems the pigs are camped out close by. Too hot to sit in stand to hunt pigs this time of year.

I bet there are a bunch of fellas here that will sit in the heat and clear the hogs out for you!

Relief is on the way, it's about two weeks early, the first strong cold front here in MN is due through tomorrow. Wednesday it'll be in the mid 60's for highs. Normally in Texas, the heat break comes around mid September, I wouldn't be surprised if comes by Labor Day this year.

Hog panels & t posts / feeder pen = no more pigs at the feeder problems + you'll see more deer.

We have hunted our place since '07 with no feed pens.. always thought trapping and shooting would keep the hogs in check... that didn't work for us, just not able to keep up. Wanted to get them penned last year and it didn't work, sure hope I get it done this season.

Seems the pigs will also keep the deer away, or so it seems.

My buddy and I have been looking for a pig hunt. We'll gladly come out in this hot weather and take care of them for you. Just let us know when and where.

I got pics of hogs and other hogs together. Pics of hogs and cows together. Pics of hogs and turkey together. But never a pic of hogs and deer together. We penned half our feeders last year and it makes a big difference. We shoot hogs until late Nov and then they disappear and deer go to those non peeled feeders then.

That being said, in S. Tex I have seen a boss buck walk right through a group of hogs like they were, we'll just annoying hogs. But that was a very rare sight but cool.

I have heard that often said, but then again, maybe the deer keep the hogs away, since you never see them together. loco

The don't seem to mingle much. That is certainly true, but I have never not seen deer at my place, just don't usually see them when the pigs are in the immediate vicinity.

I have two feeders that are just 50 yards apart. I have had pics of deer at one at the same time there are hogs at the other.

Deer are starting to move in. Several bucks, an old doe and her fawn are making themselves at home.

I wish my money grew as fast as a hog population! Feeder pen is the only way to go unless you have unlimited amounts of time to go hunt em. Its nothing for me to pop 5 hogs in a weekend( every weekend) and that doesnt even put a dent in the population.
