Who has a hog trap plan I can use?
I need to build 3 of them one for each neighbor.
Looking for something 4' x6' something one man can move in a truck.

PM me if you can help, I'll provide email address at that time.
Thanks,

Its nice to have something portable but those traps catch deer also. I have a couple but got away from them and went to a simple round 4 sheep panel with a 4ft gate with large spring to close it. Gate held open with a concrete block full of corn in back of trap. You can tie gate open and feed in it a few days before untying it. Caught lots of hogs in them.

I’m partial to this design. 4x8 still fits in the truck with the tailgate down. I have a spring loaded horizontal door. I use a prop stick to hold it open 5-6”, then after the first goes in others can push in. I have never tried a rooting style door but this version only takes two hinges and a spring.

Depending on which style panels you use will determine how tall to make it. I tried to do it to minimize waste on 20’ pieces of angle iron.

You don’t need a panel on top but they will craw out if you don’t put some sort of mess/wire on top. I used goat fence material.

I didn't want to believe it, but the box traps with the rooter gates do work, and, they keep deer out. I bought two at the Tractor Supply in Blanco.
