Paging BP - Getting hogs to come out in daylight?


Got a small population of hogs at a place I'll be hunting soon that recently showed up. Landowner wants to hold off on trapping til after deer season, so lead it is. They come to corn when it's there, but only been put out a few times with no regularity. I've been lucky enough to not have to deal with a hog problem before, whats my best plan of attack here? TIA

Why? Trapping is generally less disturbing to the property and Much more effective.

The most effective trapping is the first pass before they know you targeting them.

Pigs will pattern to feeders especially if feed is limited. They like to get there and get it all first. But pigs respond to pressure and will change patterns at whim.

In these temps they will move in daytime but for the most part they understand the safety of dense woods and darkness. Place feeders with timers near the edges of deep woods and rooting areas. Make clean head shots and try to disturb the area as little as possible. Game cameras are helpful in targeting their movements.

If there are young pigs make sure to set out a fruit flavored mineral block also.

I told him trapping was the only way to really put a dent in them, but he seems set on learning the hard way, and I get to kill pigs.

This is where I'm lacking knowledge. When is the best time to set the feeder? I baited for a few days in a row and they seemed very content to just wait til after dark.

Sunrise and middle of the day. Got to make them start moving in the daylight hours.

bait 20 min before sunrise and 1 hour before sunset. set the feeder for the lowest setting possible once they find it.


another option is the pig pipe and hunt them at night with lights.

Gotta wait until after deer season for that though.

Landowner is doing his property a disservice by not allowing trapping. You could put a dent in them for the first little while before they feel the pressure of being regularly hunted.
