The hogs are starting to be more and more comfortable in this trap. Got two last Sunday and three today

Most Excellent!

One thing I've learned in my limited trapping experience — Try to shoot them so that they don't fall against the trap door! roflmao


You can never have too much ammo unless you're swimming.

I always like shooting them next to the door...I'm too old to bend over and get them dragged out from the rear of the trap !!

And with the cell phone trigger I only trap them on Friday and Saturday night when the weather is not going to be too bad the next day

I had problems dragging big dead hogs out of my traps. Finally I got a long sturdy pole and put an eyebolt in the end and ran a loop of thin plastic covered wire through it. Now I can run the pole in the trap, loop the wire around a leg and drag em out. And, if necessary I can drag them away from the door.

Good job!!!

I am very interested in your cell phone trigger setup. I have what appears to be the same style trap door setup on two round pens at my place. We are currently having challenges getting the hogs in the traps when we have the gates set. They will go in at times when we wire the gates up. We have had success in the past using these setups. I have been looking around at some of the complete round pen setups that are cell phone activated, but it sure can get expensive fast. Using what I currently have and adding a cell phone activated trigger would save a significant amount.

Same here. Can you elaborate on the cell setup?

I have built several DYI remote traps. They were all 3G now need a 4G set up. I have not built any 4G remotes yet because my cameras were also 3G. My new cameras will be here in late March. You should be able to build a remote for around 300 dollars.Hunter Steve uses a trunk latch to release his traps. I use a push pull solenoid. that pulls a handle that releases my guillotine gate. here is an old post to give yall an Idea what is involved.

I'm now using a 4G Kioa Time GSM controller and an ATT sim card that runs me $25 for three months.

Seems the controller is hard to find but here is a 2 channel one I just found https://www.anaclassic.com/usa-swit...uto-dc-us4g-4g-sms-app-relay-android-gsm

I use a 4 channel version that I got on Amazon for $135 and it has worked great. It does eat up power. So you need to have a big battery and or solar charger set up on it

As Espy said I use an electronic trunk latch to release my trap. Those can be found on ebay for under $30 now.

That sure is a lot of hardware around you trap, amazing what animals can get used to being part of their environment.

I solved the pigs behind the door problem, and dragging them out of that little door sucked. Hinge the bottom.

Where's the LIKE button ??

Actually, the hogs around here won't go into a trap that has a bottom.

Those work great if you can go get them any day of the week. I'm going to build one this weekend but put a Cell Phone trigger on it so I can close the gate only when there is a full sounder in there as well as I can go get them the next day.

I'll post pictures when it's built.
