First pic is 2 weeks ago---first catch in the new trap and this is what the jail population looked like before the jail break which left only 9 in the trap. Second picture is from this week--most pigs I've ever seen in one trap, so I'll set the trap tomorrow night and then hope I don't run out of ammo Thursday morning--

Recently had 21 piglets in one of my trail cameras pics.

We’ve trapped 50 pigs in the last 4 months. I finally broke down and bought a live cam so I could set the trap and not have to drive an hour and check it every other day.

Good luck! Trapping is fun, the work after is not.

Luckily, the landowner cruises past the trap each morning as he checks cows---and texts me when we have a catch. My other two spots are only 10 minutes from the house so they're not an issue---

And what am I gonna do with them? Have a buddy that will take a couple but all the rest of my "takers" have largely given up accepting them, so it may be the buzzard buffet.

Nobody in your area buys them ? My trap is set too, but I (hopefully) have a guy who will come and get them. Gotta catch them first though......

I have been out a few times shooting pigs in the trap. Wild scene for sure. We use a suppressed 22 because we are on camp grounds and the camp owner does not want to campers to hear shots. We too have run out of folks that want them. Buzzard food.
Good job...kill them all.

Dustoffer, the lady in Leesville is buying them again. She may even come and get that many of them if you can keep them penned up. Good job on the trap, I hate them bastages. Kill em all.

Too bad you cant rig it up with three flame throwers inside it.

When I originally laid out and built the trap, my layout was bad---and when I got all the 20' panels with 3x3 openings up, I had a 4' gap. Rather than pulling the posts and re-setting, I spliced in a piece of panel with 4''x6" openings in the gap, and they managed to squeeze out thru that small section.

Trap has been re-laid and is one 16' panel larger now--so it will hold more and at the same time, the running hog shoot will be more challenging.

Radar---I can keep them penned up but the only way out of the trap is the door and they would have to be able to back a trailer up against it and I'm not sure how they would do that.

I'll gut 'em and cut their heads off but that's as far as I go unless it is a select few friends who still have jobs and couldn't take them until after work.

The last I heard, Guadalupe Co. was still paying $5 per pig.
