Default Need a quick sour corn/hog attractant.

Hey guys,

My father in law just surprised us with a visit and would like to take him hog hunting. I ran out yesterday afternoon and threw out a bag of corn and some hog wild but nothing on the camera yet. Is there something else I can make and put out there that works quick? He is only here for 2-3 days and all the sour corn recipes I read take a week or two. Thanks.

Put corn in a plastic bucket and cover with cheap beer, the cheaper the better!

If you had the time, make them some sour mash corn liquor. Take a sack of corn, 5 pounds of apples, 10 pounds of sugar, 7 packs of yeast and pour into a small barrel. Cover with water and stir until mixed. Place a loose lid over the barrel and stir once a day. After about 4 days, add 5 pounds of sugar and 4 packs of yeast and stir until mixed. After about another 4-5 days, your sour mash is ready for the hogs.

Good huntin.

How long does the corn and beer mix need to sit before use? Will instant yeast or anything else speed up the process?

Go dig you a hole where you dumped the corn, pour half a bag of corn in it along with some strawberry jello, a small bag of yeast and then mix it up a good a possible. When that is one pour a beer over the top and cover with a thin layer of dirt.

If you are trying to get him on hogs quick, I would do nothing, but throw out corn if I were you. Hogs can be very finicky sometimes. If you throw a bunch of new smells in an area, they will avoid it for a period of time ( I have seen a couple days, up to a week +). They are smarter than most give them credit for.

I have been hunting hogs since I was 9, and have tried just about every attractant. I have not seen anything work better than just corn IN THE RIGHT SPOT. I would find a trail, rootings, etc and corn those. Then put cameras on them, I am willing to bet you will have hogs the first night.

I baited this spot 2-3 weeks ago with some hand sprinkled corn and a cell trail cam and had 10-12 hogs the first night.

Now I go out and bait it a day ago and still nothing. Not sure if they moved or the wind is messing it that much or what. The area has been rooted up prior to my first corn feeding.

I just want to make sure I do everything I can to get him a hog. He has gone through some personal stuff the past few weeks and can really use a pick me up.

I don't think it's really an issue of the bait you put out. As you're probably aware, hogs are either there or they aren't. Very nomadic animals. If they're there and you put out normal corn, they'll hit it. I think the soured just works better if you're trying not to lure in deer (trapping situation).

Hogs move around good. They will find it. With time, I'm and diesel guy too. In a hurry, I would go sweet with Jello and sugar. If you are really in a hurry, they love Buck Jam

Dude, save your money. All you need is the cheapest Strawberry Jello mixed with corn, soaked for a couple of days or you can do what I have done, forget the corn, pour the jello packet in some wet mud or water puddle.
Money! If they are close enough to smell it.

C&B nailed it. Yes those previously mentioned attractants will work, but it will take time for the hogs to get comfortable with them. You don't have that luxury so I'd go with just corn. Best of luck and let us know how it goes.

Just corn!
Hogs will shy away from new smells for several days sometimes.
