Little non waterfowl help

Postby Ely » Tue Jan 28, 2014 8:59 pm

Along this river outside of town we go to has a lot of hog sign and was wondering the best way to hunt them(now-summer) mainly in The summer. We don't have a lot of time to trap them so could we dump out some corn and set up there after after the hogs find it? Or is there a better way to do it? There is a ton of hogs in that area.

Dig a hole, bury the corn. It'll keep them around longer and give yourself a better chance of being there at the same time. Even better is fermented corn, google it. If you're really committed you could do a pig pipe to keep them around for even longer. Also, have LR308... Will travel.

X2, except 450 bushmaster and will travel, and a loaner 308. W/ aimpoint red dot if needed. :grooving:
On the corn part, my favorite is a bag of feed corn, an old six pack, and some old potatoes. Mix in a barrel then let sit for a week in the sun, or any warm place since its cold now.

Do I need to put the corn at the edge of the water or back in the trees aways?

I would pick a spot that you can get a good shot at. If they are rooting around next to the river, dig your hole there. Use something like a post hole digger and get it a few feet down. If you see a trail through the woods they are using, you could put it there as well. They'll smell it regardless of where you put it, especially if you ferment the corn.

A friend of mine borrowed my 22-250 for his texas javalina/hog hunt, he did well out to 200 yards.
But if its thick brush, which I assume since its near the river, you definatly want a larger caliber w/ a low power scope.

My best GWT spot has a ton of hogs as well. Happened to walk into a group on the hike out back in december.
20 ga. #2 hevi metal works well on piglits, but I didnt dare take a crack at the sow. Decided to make a few cut shells right there in case she came back for vengance. :eek:

Soak corn a few days in Milwaukee best or natty light....semi bury it. Enjoy.

You really wanna have some fun set up a trap. Snare them out....put em in a pen and feed em corn for 3 weeks....Butcher them. Great cheap meat. And good fun

We took about 2' Of 3/4" pvc.....drilled a hole toward one of the ends for our snare. Just snare one around the neck then feed your pvc toward the front of the trap. Very important to keep it tight. Lift the trap door slightly to get the pvc and rope under it.....Open the door and have your partner yank that thing out. You run behind it and grab it's back legs...toss it and pin her down. Have your partner stand on its head or whatever to help restrain swine. Hobble the swine...throw it in the back of the truck...repeat if more pigs are in the trap.

Be sure to have plenty of slack in your rope. Bout 4' Out of the snare. Makes life alot easier.
