I grew up in South Texas, but I'll bet that our "bait" will work in the piney woods as well.

Fill a 5 gallon bucket with corn or milo, and put a can of cheap soda pop in it, along with 1/2 to 1 gallon of water. Cover it loosely and allow it to ferment for a few days. The smell will let you know when it is ready.

Dump it out in your pre-scouted area that shows recent hog sign. They will find it in a day or two.

You can make as much as you need, and keep topping off your pile on the ground. Once you see evidence that the hogs have been coming in and feeding, set up and have fun.

If you are up for a real rodeo, try one of those electronic calls. I like a tape called "feral piglet in distress." It will bring sows and boars running and looking for blood, so it is best to be well up in a tree or deer stand for your shots.
