Built the trap a week ago and started feeding, set it last night. Called a buddy at 5:00 this morning and told him we had pigs. Two 12 gauges and a few rounds of 00 Buck shot put an end to their rooting

Nicely done! Can you take a picture of your trap if you don't mind need to build one as well. What's the trap door like?

I will take pics this afternoon of the trap and door. Basically all it is, is a circle with a guillotine door. Very simple build and very effective.

I use an old tire and a block of 2x4 for the trigger. I like it because you can get them trained to flip the tire to get to the corn inside. Plus a small pig will not be able to move the tire enough to trip it.

She is set and waiting for more pigs.

The way I have found that works best ( for me ) is start by feeding outside the trap, then slowly start putting more corn in the trap with just a trickle on the outside leading to the door. Once you start corning inside pour small piles in the very back and along the sides starting half way back. This will get all of the smaller pigs in and give the bigger older pigs a chance to check it out before they decide to go in. I pour a lot of corn inside the tire, not just in the center, but rake it in to the tire, they will soon learn every time they flip the tire they get more corn. So when you set the trap, they flip the tire, the door falls and the pigs are trapped.

The first time I tried this trigger was pretty funny ( not at the time ) but now. I was building the trap very slow, such as maybe 4 T-Post and one 16 foot panel every 3 to 4 days while corning heavy. After about 3 days the bigger pigs started flipping the tire, after that it was a treasure hunt for the tire. Sometimes it was 20 yards away...LOL

It is such an easy effective way to trap pigs, and as stated in one post above how slow I was building the trap, you can get the trap wise pigs to start coming in. Another beautiful thing is you can build this trap to your needs, it can be a 30 foot, 60 foot or how ever big to make the old smart pigs feel good about going in.
