Leave a bag of corn in the rain for a week, I promise you it'll be so nasty only pigs will eat it and they'll come in for it quick.

I put corn in the trap laid out in a pattern that the hogs will feed in.

Then I dust the corn pretty good with powder kool aid.

Then I spray it pretty good with diesel.

Then I shoot the hogs in the trap next morning.

I’ve used soured wheat for years. I’ve never caught a deer with it. Pigs smell it a mile away too. Just don’t get it on you if you want to sleep in the same house with your wife!!!

Soured corn. Put some water in with your corn and let it sit. If you want to do it faster add some sugar and yeast with the water. It will be rancid but it won't attract a deer and pigs LOVE it.

What kind of trap?
I make corral style or called C style trap sometimes.
Use corn and hog wild if a deer gets in there it can jump out.

My understanding is that the diesel is like oil and they crave it to help keep their skin from cracking and getting to dry and help with bugs.

Also what is mentioned above.

Not sure if this is all true but I know they LOVE it.

We use diesel and corn covered with strawberry jello.

That makes sense. I work in the power line industry and we constantly find poles rubbed down close to the ground. The poles are soaked in creosote and they love to have it on there skin apparently but I had never heard the diesel method before.

Creosote to keep fleas and ticks off. Diesel for sulphur.

Are the pigs still safe to eat after consuming diesel?

Put diesel on corn. Nothing beats it but hogs.

Step further for shooting them. Get a 2 foot wide piece of carpet. Wrap it around a tree trunk or telephone pole about hog high and nail it to it. Spray down with diesel and the hogs will come a rubbin! Chootem.

Easiest is soured corn. Soak it in water until you cannot stand the smell!

I like to save all the peanut oil after frying Thanksgiving turkeys.
I soak the corn in the oil for a week or so and then bait with it.
Iíve trapped hogs before just resetting the door and they dig up the oil soaked ground.
I have an 8í round trap with a top and havenít had any issues with deer being interested.

Use almond milk. My secret hog bait recipe. Does not stink and sour so there is no mess, the hogs, especially young hogs tear it up and the deer don't often eat it. Sometimes they will but not if they have other options.
I don't like using diesel and don't really want soured nasty corn in my truck all the time.

If I really want to bait in hogs I soak corn in Big Red for about a week. They go nuts over it.
