Man oh man...they are showing up very early in the mornings lately. This group ate up a bunch of corn and only four smaller ones stayed around in the trap to greet me this morning. I manage to spend a couple late nights out a week , as a rule...but it's probably not enough. Maybe I need to turn nocturnal as well !!

Those night pictures look like Hog Armageddon! Creepy.

Is there a trap door on that trap, or is it the heart shaped kind where they just push their way in through the panels? I haven't seen the half-in, half-out feeder placement before. Can you explain that trap?

I canít speak for the OP, but the feeder placement is what I do on my big trap. With the feeder can outside the trap, itís easy to fill. It throws corn in and out of the trap, which is temptation for the pigs. The right kind of trigger is needed, so Iíd like to hear what the OP uses.

I have a sorta strange arrangement on the door I guess, but it works pretty good sometimes...when the coons don't knock it closed. I have been using a very thin wire lately attached to the post holding the door open. They bump it...they are caught. I put that feeder there to just kind of feed on both sides of the trap as I feed deer there too.

Very sandy soil on that property (perhaps that entire area)?

Where I am....it is mostly red clay/iron ore...so I can place a trip wire across a bait hole. The little ones won't set it off that way. Takes a larger hog to 'claim' the hole and root it enough to trip the door(s). Too many times the little ones run in there ahead of the bigger hogs and set off the trigger if it is easily moved.

Your set up...seems to work well enough. You catch a lot of hogs. Good job.
