Default Homemade hog trap

So I was tired of sitting out all night and setting small traps to try and get pigs. So I looked into the corral or even drop cell phone gates. But I didnít want to pay 4-5 k for a gate. So I looked up online at some designs and built my own. Only thing I purchased was the hogg boss gate because of there electronics, because Iím not techno savy here is some pictures of our progress. The plan is to catch them, and load em up and sell them at a place close to home. Iím happy with it. With all metal, electronics, paint, hinges everything you seen went about 1500$. Iím just doing this to help my deer hunting and a fun Hobbie Thanks for looking.

Yes please. I didn't see that box on their website. Only a grey one that looked much smaller. If you have a website link that would be great.

Sorry guys donít get on here much. Weíve killed over 30 pigs. And trapped over 27 coons with the duke traps. Itís helping out a lot. Itís been a lot of fun and the trap works great.

I moved it, it was in the bottom and it had been so wet I couldnít get down to it. So once it dries up a little bit I moved it to high ground
