I have been on a quest for about 5 weeks. I kept having hogs walk up to my trap and never going in. I even have one picture of a hog with his head in the trap, but he never went all the way in. To say the least I was a little frustrated. I tried all sorts of bait: Corn, Corn with Jello on it, Corn with cooking oil on it, corn with Big Red on it and nothing worked. They would just look at it and I guess laugh.

Friday night I found a treat they could not resist. I had an old jar of molasses in the pantry. I dumped about 1/2 pint of molasses on the corn. I had some friends in there Saturday Morning. O' Happy Day! I did have a boar, sow and 3 little ones. Killed four before one little one escaped. There were 8 outside that did not get caught. Guess I have some more work to do!

Good start!


If you find yourself feeling useless, remember it took 20 years, trillions of dollars, and four presidents to replace the Taliban with the Taliban.

Sometimes the Universe puts you in the same situation again to see if you’re still a dumbass.

Tried the Corn Arrow. That did not work. I even tried a Beer on the Corn. Guess they did not like Bud Light! LOL
