Do yall remove hogs killed at your feeder as soon as they stop kickin or do you leave them lay a while?
Ive been dragging them off as soon as they stop kickin if I want to still hunt at the same feeder.

My last video shows one sleeping while the others are coming to party around him. Hunt or two before that, a dead one scared the arriving party train off. I think it just depends, but by and large, I find they don't pay much attention to the dead. I'll clean off the hill from the night before when I leave in the AM.

Well, you can risk scaring off incoming pigs by getting the area around the feeder polluted with your scent, not the mention the commotion you create by going to remove the hog, or you can worry that the dead hog will scare off others. There is no one right answer. Multiple times I have had dead hogs not be an issue. A couple of times, they have been an issue. Consult your OUJI Board before hunting.

Thats kind of what I figured. Ive been shooting hogs at the feeder, sometimes within 30 minutes after dragging a dead one off 100 feet or so. But always wondered if Id do better leaving them.

We have a bone pile where we dump deer carcasses and large boars. I killed one that almost 300 pounds and the only thing left was the skull the following week. Pigs and yotes keep it pretty well cleaned out.

A buddy once shot five hogs in a row leaving them under a feeder.

First hog bang, 5 minutes later hogs come back bang, 5 minutes later hogs come back bang, 10 minutes later hogs come back bang, 10 minutes later hogs come back bang, hogs did not come back after that.

He said that fifth hog was like a human walking into a restaurant with four dead bodies laying on the floor and ordering a cheeseburger lol.

Just my .02,

The coyotes dragged off two large boars on me this week. The one I weighted was a hair over 200 pounds. Not a trace of either were left behind.

I would say that deliberately wounding an animal so that it will run off and die somewhere else is inhumane.

I drag them off when I'm done for the night.

I'm sure that some pigs are more paranoid than others and won't come near a place if ANYTHING has changed. - moreso if you tromp around the feeder dragging off another pig.
That being said, I've shot pigs smelling of a pig I shot 15 minutes before that was looking at a pig I shot 45 minutes before that...

I have had good luck just leaving them there. There has been several times where I dropped one pig just to have others come in within 30-45 minutes. My thinking is that if they smell one pig in the area it might make them feel more comfortable to come pay the feeder a visit smile

Depends on the scenario, I've shot one hog and dropped another right next to it 45 minutes later. I've found that deer really don't like seeing a dead pig below a feeder they're going to.

For hogs i havnt had a problem with dead ones near. I have had one time I dropped one and another came in less than 30 minutes, but my feeders are for deer. That is why if I drop it under my feeder I will move it. If I shoot it away from the feeder I will just leave it there.

I've experienced the same. Was working remote on my laptop from the deer blind (lame I know) - looked up and saw a group of hogs. Shot the largest hog and thought I missed. Started working again and looked back up again to see more hogs. Popped another one that ran off into thick brush (didn't attempt to recover). Next day, my buddy shot a doe at the same feeder. When we went to recover... the first hog was dead close by.

IMO - if you want to continue hunting that feeder - you're better off leaving the hog there so your scent doesn't scare others away. I bet they are more likely to be spooked by human scent rather than a dead hog. Just my two cents.

Appreciate the input JP. I was mainly concerned about the ones that are dropped right at the base of the feeder bleeding on the corn.

My pleasure. Just a side note - the hog that was near the feeder was still within the radius the corn throws. Was just out of site from my blind (near the tree line). It wasn't under the feeder, but I imagine with it being so close and with the other hogs not seeming to care - it's not a huge issue if the hog is directly underneath. The second group of hogs had to walk right by it to get to the feeder.

I have always left them lay until I'm done hunting. I've never shot one directly under the feeder just near the feeder. I leave them lay and keep hunting for deer or more hogs. I've not seen it make any difference to either. I guess they think they'er just sleeping.

Last weekend we shot one and let it lay under the feeder. 30 minutes later his buddies came back and started eating the dead pig. His tail was completely eaten when we shot the second pig. They didnt come back after that
