A sounder is a group of pigs. Kind of like a flock of birds or a pack of wolves.

It doesn't appear that group is trap shy as their appetite draws them in even as you erect the enclosure. Hopefully the trend continues with the entire group until the gate falls. I have some that won't step foot inside any enclosure.

There are 3 sows that are not coming near it. These young pigs are dumb.


If it makes a track on this earth , I can catch it.

We had three sows and 9 piglets coming in until we placed the trap. The piglets got all up in it, the sows stay just outside. Frustrating at times. Each sounder is different. Some go right down in and get caught the first night, other may take a couple of weeks.

That's one of the reasons I slowly erect the trap.

One of my buddies built a drop trap. I like the idea but they don't have to run as far to beat it . Especially with a large sounder.

Another panel added today. 2 of the 3 sows that have been avoiding the corral have joined in this evening.

I bait for 3-5 days before starting to put panels up. Then wait until every pig goes in a couple nights in a row before closing. I want them comfortable with the enclosure.

All panels are up. Gate has been tested. Hogs are sleeping in the corral.

Planning to drop Friday evening. If they cooperate.

You hog guys are a hoot-and-a half! Maybe even a whole half!
Hogs are a PAIN but I don't do hogs.

When I trapped hogs I hated handling them. The smell that gets up your nose and lingers for a couple of days. That rancid smell that is a mix of mud/urine/feces and just general hog stench. The only way I found to quell the smell was to put peppermint toothpaste up my nose.

What’s really fun is when you’ve been baiting a group like that for a week getting ready to drop on them then the local dog hunters come in and kill 1-2 and screw everything up.
