We figured it was from fighting but it seems that he didn't get this until late January.

It looks like we got 1/4in of rain yesterday with some dime size hail. We've only received 1in+ of rainfall once since September 2020 and that was in late December. We continue to get 1/4-in to 1/2-in which doesn't provide any runoff so our ponds are hurting. These 1/4-in rainfalls don't allow any moisture to get through the cedars and into the soil underneath. I'll take what we can get but we need a get 1.5 to 2in dumping soon to get some good runoff.

Man I hope it’s right! That would run some water how hard it fell!
I know mine is showing 1.70”, and I’d be darn tickled with that.

I agree. Anything around 2in or more would be fantastic!

I just checked FarmLogs today and it changed from 3.7in to 1.7in. 1.7in sounds more realistic. I'm thinking about installing a rain gauge in front of my wireless camera so I can take a real-time photo and see where the orange floating indicator is after it rains. Anybody ever try this?

We ended up having 2in of rain in the rain gauge from this past week. Everything is starting to green up nicely and the protein and cottonseed consumption is way down which is pretty typical for this time of year. We saw our 2nd hog on camera and will be setting up a hog trap to try and get rid of them as quickly as possible.

We are disking and dragging a 3 acre field today and will be planting a mixture of cowpeas, sunn hemp, buckwheat, and sorghum in mid May. I will broadcast the seed on May 14th and lightly disk it in and then cultipack over it. We will see how it works.

Hereís a pic from my computer of the hog. Itís crazy that he doesnít visit any corn or protein feeders. This is the first pic of him at a feeder but he just went on by.

Filling up the 50-gallon water totes. They empty every 2 weeks. Hoping to eventually put a 275-gallon tote on each one but havenít had the time.

If that big old hog won’t go near a feeder not sure how easy he will be to trap.

I agree. We have never seen much hog sign out there but this last trip showed a bunch of sign so we decided to set up a trap and see what happens.

Have yall had them in there prior. If not where are they digging in at?


Should be easy to ride the fences and find their entry point

We're high fenced west of Junction and quit trying to keep the pork out. Even with all the rocks they dig and push the fence up enough to get under. We block the gap and they move down 20 feet and push through another spot. Now we just wait till they pattern at a feeder then we ambush them. It slows them down for a while. Typically they are worse during the summer since we're feeding protein, cottonseed and the neighbors only feed during the regular season so we get pretty infested with multiple packs during the summer. Good luck on getting that big boar. For whatever reason our pigs are trap shy even though we don't use the traps but maybe once a year. I'll be following to see if that big one takes the bait

We only trap during the deer season. and we have to hide the traps. anything in the open and they will feed around it and never go in it. If we hide it they will go in.

Thanks for the tip! We left it open since we arenít there but we will hide it with brush during our next trip. Do you normally just hide it with brush?

Stuffing it into a cedar are piling brush up around it helps, leaving the drop gates wired open for awhile helps, hoping your deer and exotics don't eat your corn from around and in your trap helps.............

I really never had a great amount of success until I built my drop gate trap without a floor. It seemed by camera that my hogs would eat the trail corn to the trap, take one step into the trap and when they felt the panel they would then back out.

I recommend you put a trail camera facing the trap on its video setting and see if this might happen to you.

Best of luck and enjoy following along.

Thanks for the tips! I will put a camera around it and push it into some brush. I'll see if I can cut out the floor as well.

We set up our cell trail camera at the hog feeder and left the door open for the past 4 days but no hog activity. Been seeing lots of deer but no hogs. My dad is allowing corn to sit in water for a day and will then add it in the trap to see if that deters the deer or attracts the hogs. It's very strange as we haven't seen any hogs at our corn feeders or protein feeders.

We ended up getting 0.90in of rain yesterday. Weíll take whatever we can get but it sure would be nice to get a big storm that would give us 2+in to fill up the tanks and creeks.

Yall don't drive fencelines?

Has to be a big hole to let that pig in. He is pushing 190-200.

And if he got in, coyotes are by the pack too

We drive the fence lines every trip and have snares on the 3 or 4 holes that we see dug out. No telling how long heís been here because weíve never seen him at the feeders which all have the gates open.
