Default New hog trap

Made this trap over the last couple of days. I used 10 old 6 foot hog pen gates. Had to extend the height and weld on 4x4 cattle panels. Also built a 4í wide gate. Pretty easy to haul and pen together. Gonna bait a few days then set it.

I didnít take pictures of trigger. I use a 1/4Ē rod attached to the panel behind the gate. It has a ďLĒ bent in it that I hook to the gate. I then run bailer twine or heavy nylon fishing line from there to the side and across to another panel. I use the same system on all my traps. I set it high enough that small pigs and coons will not trip it.

I like that design--my 100' pen trap works for me but I have to climb over the wire to get to the dead ones as I can't stoop low enough to get thru the doors--too old for such stuff.

Still doing research! I have everything to make one with wireless remote. Looking for info on using cellular, without all of the expense.

Dusty Britches---here's a pic of the gate---it is just a circular pen with 6 16' panels and t-posts. Easy build, and I have a feeder inside the trap.
