Changing with them will increase your odds…..
This time of year Spring is right around the corner. That is good, and bad.
If you’re keeping your feeders full, and setting the timers for the hogs, odds are you’re having some good hunts right now.
What do you do when the weather changes? From cool to warm? Be prepared. Hogs aren’t much for hot days, so even if you have fewer fronts to hunt there’s still alot of opportunity.
Keeping your feeder full, and set will go a long way to keeping the hogs regular at your place. Don’t forget that they are “looking” for your corn. If they happen across it, they will stay for a while. If it is a dependable source of food, they will stay in the area.
I like to set my places near water. Water is a sure thing to me. Everything in the area will go there eventually. Whether or not you’re set up on a good trail depends on what you have to choose from. If the trails aren’t heavily traveled, or there are more desirable places close by, that’s where you need to be.
I have one set up that isn’t close to water, but it is on a major trail between the neighbor’s watering hole, and our property. The hogs like to bed down on our place because there is alot of cover. At dusk they’ll move down to the water and then back up to our place to feed for the evening. That’s where I come in.
I set up on the major trail between the two locations. So, everything on that side of the property that wants to water in that spot will eventually pass through there.
I like this. It increases my chances of having a good hunt. This way, all I have to do is pick the right time when the weather is “right”, and just sit and watch the wildlife come through.
It’s like shooting fish in a barrel ;-)So, I pick the absolute most reliable times I can. I hate wasting time, and making a blank trip can be very frustrating.
Keep your feeders full, watch the weather and track everything on your game cameras according to the moon. Use the moon as your constant (it happens every month of the year) and watch your cameras to see how the weather (which you are tracking) changes the animals movements.
