yup - hogs aren't even waiting till dark to hit my feeder / trap:
these guys came while I was filling feeder @ 8pm & putting new SD card
I stood real still, pulled out iphone to snap this pic - and they just kept coming - this close - ( about 50 to 60 ft):

Looked around a bit for hog tracks, nothing definate, dont have area cleared out like do under oaktree were feeder & such is... It could be the coons have found were threw corn down... Got plenty of pics of birds, crows hitting it hard, & squirrels... Wish had cheap hand held NV.. Weather is cooling down... See several have been having luck with the bigger hog traps... Had drawing of what want ta build rofl hogs gonna show up weather build it or not... My credit rating is limited... Doing best i can with what little i got... Will let the pro's worry about it... I've always payed ta ty hunt... Just getting were can't aford it... You still seeing hogs ? Its all about location... Took about two months before these two showed up... flag

I've got Grand Pappy coming to the trap now !
Is that a camel or a Hog with a HUMP ??
Never seen this guy before - just lotsa middle-size black ones before.
All the others leave when this guy arrives; they come back in a few minutes when he's gone.

May of got hit by a truck when he was younger and broke some bones. Just walked out back to run my neighbors big mouthed hound dog off with the red rider. He is out there every morning chasing my deer off. I was sitting there with bb gun in hand and bull barrel .22 mag over shoulder just in case I see the Wiley coyote. Im standing on my logging trail and hear foot steps coming form behind me. I get ready for that red bone bast d and low and behold its Wiley coyote. Its just walking through the crunchy leaves probably on the way back from eating the free range chickens across the road. I try to set the bb gun down and grab my mag. I left the scope caps on and didn't have a shell in the chamber. Didn't have much confidence in seeing anything other than the red dog, so wasn't really even prepared for this. By the time I pulled the caps off the yote was in full run mode. I chambered a round and fired through the thick brush, and when I went to slam a second round in, the bolt came out of the back of the gun. Boy felt like a rookie. I guess that's what can happen when your not really ready every time. It will be a while before I see that one again. hammer

Canines can be pretty quick learners. When I was in college, a neighbor's dog would crap in my front yard. Caught him in the act one time, got my pellet pistol and set it on low power. Popped him in the side; it was four weeks before he'd even set foot in the yard, and six weeks before he stopped to crap again. I never got another shot at him, he'd hear me easing the screen door open and take off not to be seen for another four weeks. That happened multiple times. Just the squeak of the screen door hinges reminded him that he needed to be somewhere else fast!
