Default Pig bait

I'm looking for some opinions on what pig bate to use ??? I've tried the oil you pour on the ground and the dry stuff you add to your corn

You want pigs to find a new spot…? soured corn

Any established spot…corn mixed with corn that the feeder never stops and never runs out. Consistency is the ticket.

This. Corn mixed 50/50 with more corn. Not Apple flavor or any of the other gimmicks. Just plain old corn. Consistency as mentioned is the ticket.

I’ve never seen a pig eat a pumpkin. Smashed or whole.

A nice manicured yard! They really like it when you mow for 2hrs, put out some triple 13, weed eat...

But corn works, too.

You gotta throw in some of those tiny miniature whole corn cobs you find at chinese buffets. It'll attract the piglets.

Soybean. I have a some giant boars coming for it. They don’t show up at the feeder unless it’s on the ground. The females show up everyday for just plain corn. The boars show up for about 3-4 days till all the soybean is gone. I’m betting on it this weekend.

just regular ole corn. I've found that most pigs will shy away from a foreign smell such as soured corn or really sweet corn. Be consistent and dont hunt it in the wrong wind!

I had some left over bulk corn in a water tote last year that was soured. About the last third of it. I drug the tote down one of our pipelines and dumped it out. Hogs found it pretty quick. They continued to visits this spot for months after the corn was gone. Its just a bald spot in the grass now. It’s been almost a year now.
