Obviously a newbie here. Looking at setting up a feeder with lights on 30 acres we have.

Many hogs get conditioned to lights. Would they similarly get conditioned to sound so that one could better sneak up on them, assuming wind and other factors are in your favor?

Has anybody tried to condition hogs to motion-sensored recordings?

Worst case, can probably have fun with this thread suggesting genres and artists to play and/or avoid.

What recordings do you want them conditioned to? The sounds of poor field craft?

I don't know anybody that has tried this, but I would believe that you would want the sounds to originate from the direction you would be entering. You could record yourself stomping through the woods and have that play back so that when you return and stomp through the woods to get close, they might not know the difference. Give it a shot.

Genres and Artists....like Rush, Britney Spears, or Drake? I would suggest this sentimental suid tune, Prom Night in Pig Town by Trout Fishing in America. According to Cliff Claven, it is a little known fact that hogs are quite the romantics.

I was thinking inexperienced, but poor field craft is descriptive as well.

Prom Night in Pig Town does seem appropriate.

I enjoy Carpe Sus videos.

It seems to me it would work if you are certain the same group is always around and it's not just a lot of roaming pigs that won't hear it enough. Mainly because, in my experience, often hogs around neighborhoods get used to things like lights and cars and dogs barking, etc. and don't act as spooky as "country" pigs.. HOWEVER, I was talking to a lady in a subdivision I help with the hogs about various ways to keep hogs out of yards. She says she leaves a radio on her front porch playing music all night and her hog problem went away. So in that case, at least, those pigs are not getting conditioned to the sounds and they are staying away from her yard. I haven't talked to her in a while so I don't know if she's still having success, but at the time it had been a year or more that she says this worked. I guess if it's a radio station and not a repeating track, there is enough randomness to keep them from getting conditioned.

I agree with trying Trout Fishing in America, but throw in some Pork Soda by Primus for good measure.

Since we're talking about Pork...



Your feeder is the sound conditioner.

Never had a problem stalking up on hogs at the feeder. Just had to make sure the wind was right.

I guess at some point you would graduate to big boy hunting school and have to change your personal recordings to "I am awesome" field craft. /S

Hogs do get accustomed to sounds and they are very perceptive to their surroundings. I've climbed a fence and not had them bothered (familiar sound) and then bolt at the sound of the safety switch (unfamiliar). Somehow the bazzdardz know the difference between another hog rustling leaves vs a lead foot like me.
