I have about 35 acres on the Brazos River in Texas. We just started seeing hogs on my property this spring. After seeing a group of 40, I figured it was time to start doing something about population control. I built a trap and caught 2 the first week. I havent caught any more until this morning. That makes 3 in about 3 weeks. I put 2 more traps out about a week ago. My question is, Do pigs travel in cirles, going from property to property, or do they stay where theres food. The turnips that grew in a deer plot where I had planted about 5 acres of vetch, were bringing them in at first. It has gotten so dry that I started thinking the ground was too hard for them to root up. I was told that after a rain, the pigs will start moving again into the pastures. Any thoughts.....

Chief Dude,

Mornin,

I was just gettin up and saw your 'hog' post.
What caught my eye was the ' 35 acres '
I got 25 acres myownself.
Have a couple of traps and am going out to pick some corn right now,
to bait the traps come cool weather.

Good clean lake Whitney is, clean compared to most and I like to take the old Harpoon down there, I do better on the fishin end at Tawakonii.
The Brazos is not that famliar though, but I wish it was.

About hog traps and hog themselves,
My traps are silo, type.
6 type you know.
They can, even after the 'door' has closed' still root in but it is kinda like the 'roach motel' in that they can root in... but they can't root out.
And my corn bin I refered to is really a totaled suburban that my friend from 1959, the 4th grade, left here after this tree darted out in front of it and totaled it. Damn trees, he didn't even make it to the gate.

Anyway, It is good to say howdy to another hog trapper and a Texan.

And hey, Howie dude,

I was up in the Pecos wilderness area bow hunting mule deer with my Dad,
and met a guy from woodville who I know you must know.
His bow is a 200Lb pull, and he is a hunter.
Been 25 years and I can't remember his name but say howdy if you know him.


Good hog trapping this winter Ya'll
