Hopefully this isnít a duplicate thread.

Things Iíve found big lone boars canít resist in my area and work better than the commercial products:

Whiskey soaked corn with a touch of Amaretto

Peanut powder, salt, and saccharine mixed in cheap vegetable oil

Grapes or Red koolaids, salt, brown sugar, saccharine, and caffeine pills mixed with cheap vegetable oil or water.

Carpet nailed around a tree with rearaxle lube squirted all over it

They really seem to stop by these areas day and night like a buck running a scrape.

Anxious to read yíalls

RanchDog, I will say every year when I chunk the wifeís indian corn out after the fall holiday decorations are done, the masses beat feet to it. They never eat the shucks though.

Hereís a great recipe from the Georgia Department of Natural Resources

150 pounds of corn
8 pounds of sugar
1 packet of yeast
4 or 5 packets of grape, strawberry, or raspberry flavored gelatin or drink powder. Place the corn in a 40 gallon metal trash can and fill it with water to 3 to 4 inches above the corn. Mix in all the other ingredients. Place the trash can in the sun with the lid secured. Stir it with a shovel or paddle daily for 10 to 14 days.

My "go-to" trapping bait is crimped corn with almond milk. Doesn't sour like milk and they tear it up. There always seems to be some left in the back of the fridge.


Just like Jesus, sometimes you gotta kill some hogs.

Are they really a secret boar bait if you post them on the internet?

Let ferment, drink a couple of pulls, scan for hogs, take a couple more pulls, scan. A couple more pulls, then say eff it. Time to get drunk. To heck with the hogs.

Anything sweet! I have used any fruity koolaid powder, Tang powder, and if you think it might rain use Jello Powder since it doesn't run off as much.... a lot of the store bought attractants smell just like koolaid they just cost A LOT more! lol

Whenever I throw out old fruit, the raccoons and deer devour whatever is out there long before the hogs ever arrive, LOL. I would need 50lbs of the stuff to make it through the night, LOL.

Just to remind everyone... they call it "eating like a pig" for a reason. Corn alone or with any side item works. A hog and corn are all that's needed, everything else is just lagniappe. Erath had the best answer. smile

Many baits here and other posts have corn fermented or alcohol added.
What if cheap alcohol was used, maybe a drip or wick, instead of the fermented mixtures.
Easy quick set up .

They don't eat the shucks because one day they will be wrapped in it. TAMALES! Just saying.

Yup, pigs come to corn feeders on the run. We just use corn for pigs at feeders and traps.

I bought a tractor pretty cheap once that the hogs had chewed the hydraulic lines off of and dug the tractor in deep! Rancher was not pleased.

I'm going to mix up some leftover keg beer and corn and throw it out after it cooks in the sun for a few days/weeks.

I normally wouldn't waste the beer but one of my son's friends had his 21st Bday party and had to have a big keg.
Hard for a handfull of guys to drink a whole keg so I have excess to throw a piggy party.

Put 2 gallons of corn in a 2.5 gallon plastic jug.
Fill almost to top with 4 day old beer and cap.

I wonder if pigs would drink hot beer if I put some out in a tub?


Cheers,
