Default Pig in a trap how long.

How long will a pig survive in a trap without water? Iíve got a big pig coming every afternoon and want my dad to set the trap on Thursday and hopefully catch him. I wonít be up there until Friday night to take him out. My dad cannot physically remove the pig from the trap on his own. Iím thinking maybe 200 pounds

he will be fine , its not all that likely that you will catch him in the trap immediately anyway,, weather's also pretty cool so less need for water

He goes in the trap several times a week. I just have the gate tied open. So it does not close on him while Iím not there

Even for a pig I feel you should be humane. Not always will you catch a pig in a pig trap. If I can’t monitor it I won’t set it. He’s coming out in the day time and deer season is pretty much over. Zap him with an arrow. It will be fun.

Have your dad throw a bucket of water on him if it gets hot or have him put a sheet of tin or plywood on top of the trap after he's caught until you get there.

The game warden would probably say you need to check your trap every 24 hours no less.

I am guessing that the people who are saying to be nice to the pig do not own land and/or depend on agriculture for their living. Wild hogs are a pest. They are just a big rat. Granted you can eat them but I guess you could also eat a rat if you wanted too. Set the trap. If it dies prior to you getting there then fine but I think it will probably be plenty alive when you arrive.

In this colder weather 2-3 days if he has shade!

I kill 200+ hogs a year, and still do not like them suffering. Any animal for that matter!

That pig is under 190 pounds

I kept 5 100+ pounders in a small box trap for 3 days because the guy who wanted them couldn't get to them. On the third day I told him I was going to shoot them and if he wanted them he better get there. It had rained the prior 2 days and it was the worst mess I've ever seen. I will never do that again. When it smells that bad, you won't likely trap any again unless you move it and wash it.

Are you going to get him out alive and make a pet out of him or kill him? if he dies what difference does it make if you get him the next day.

Good on you for not intentionally torturing something. I'm all for killing anything that needs to be dead, but no point in making something suffer, even a pig. 1 day should be fine with it being cool, but others above are right, just let dad shoot him.

I own the land and still donít want this animal to suffer. Can my dad shoot it and leave it in the cage? Yea but I want to keep the skull and donít want to go cutting around decomposing animals.
