I shot a pig around 10 AM from a tree stand. Its gut pile was about 40 yards from the stand. An hour and a half later, my buddy shot a pig from the same stand as a group came in to feed on the gut pile. That pig was gutted within 20 yards of the first one. About 3 in the afternoon, the 3rd guy in our party shot his pig from the same stand as a group once again came to feed on the gut pile. I have only been on 2 hog hunts and have been successful on both. From my very limited experience, it seems that gut piles can make some pretty good bait.

Killing hogs in the trap has no effect on future visits by more swine. I’ve killed them in the same trap day after day until they were thinned out. Then you may have to wait a bit for a new bunch to find the trap. Some of my traps have been in the same place for years and repeatedly catch hogs that wander into the area.

We were averaging 40 to 50 a year, but last year was a bit lean, we only caught about 20. Why? Who knows? For sure we ain’t caught ‘em all. Flooding was bad along the Mississippi and many seen were drowned, maybe that put a dent in the population...... But, they’ll be back........ So keep the trap baited.
