Hog Hunting Refresher Course
I was asked earlier this month what to do with pesky raccoons that keep stealing corn from traps.
So, I thought it would be a good point to list a few reminders.
Use a small amount of diesel on your corn if raccoons are a problem in your traps. Hogs don’t mind and other animals will leave it alone.
Sour some corn to help get your spot started a little quicker, and set your traps and stands on ACTIVE trails.
Hogs are much more likely to stay on your feed station longer (and more regularly) if you put it in a place where they walk through it. You CAN’T miss with this tactic.
Then all you have to do is be there at the right time. Use a good game camera, or even a remote camera (uploads to internet) to monitor your feed stations and go hunt them as soon as the time is right! Don’t put it off.
My limit is 3 days. I’m hunting on day 3 if the same hog or group has been there at the same time (approx) for the last 2 days. EXPECIALLY if it is directly before a cool front or change in weather!
Best of luck in the field this month. Keep the rest of us hog hunters in mind and remember that what you do affects our reputations as well. And take a kid hunting…..you won’t regret it.
