Three questions..

I know some guys use these for juvenile groundhogs, but does anyone use them on a consistent basis for adult and juvenile hogs? If so what size?

In regards to the direction the doors swing shut...why do they not swing from the other direction, so it can tap the animal on the rear when coming down and push the animal into the trap? I know the way they are currently designed they act like a colony trap, possibly allowing more animals into the trap; but do you get many tripped/empty traps because a larger animal could possibly back out? I'm sure Jim will read this and chime in, I appreciate it.

We have a number of the large swing panels that we have used for woodchucks. I donít find empty traps to be an issue. When set correctly they work fine. They are a nice budget alternative.

That said, they arenít my favorite Comstock trap. I find the large swing panels a pain to set.

The door would be easy to push up if it was aimed the other way. The closing mechanism is different between the swing panels and the black traps.
