as someone who has hunted hogs in my younger years, they are most definitely dangerous. Don't let anyone tell you any different.

Add some diesel fuel to it. A little goes a long way.
If that is too harsh for your taste, add a big jar of peanut butter.

If you can...move your traps around every now and then.

Have shot them from live traps with that quiet little gun below. ( Whole different story than what the op was tellin.

Millwright It's been dismal here.

The pigs are staying deep in the woods.

Acorns are so thick they don't have to move much.

The ranchers are having issues with acorn poisoning with their cows. (yes, it's a thing)

fragout Happy turkey day everyone.

Update:

Have 6 relatives out hunting now.

1st kill of the night was a 2fer! ( 2 pigs with one bullet) Fairly uncommon and a new record for the " 1st dump"


On a side note, I dont hunt so my kin can have um. ......so am currently in the rear with the beer.

CrypticCRICKET The wild hogs seem to be very afraid of me and my shotgun right now. They won't come out to say hi. I need to adjust my vibe.

fragout Never under estimate a sounder of wild hogs.....

https://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news...-says-n1091216

In the above was in a semi urban area.

I have personally noticed a few changes regarding hogs in the last few years.

1. There are more of them running around than ever before.
2. They seem to be much less afraid of man as they used to be.
3. Its much more common to catch them moving during the day.
4. They will at times come to another pigs aid if its making enough noise, and regardless of gunfire. ( I have put a bad hit on one, and had others come at me once it starts squealin. )
5. They are getting bigger.

Just a suggestion here.......bring enough gun. 22lr is not a guarrentee via a front on head shot. Not even close. Either is 22mag for that matter. ( My wife will and has shot them with her 1022 from the kitchen window if they come anywhere close to her gardens despite the fact that they are fenced, and most run off after being hit.....some with multiple hits.

Also.....there is no sense in running away from them as you aint gonna outrun a wild pig. Stand your ground and shoot them starting with the pig comin at you, then shoot as many more as you can.
( The only good pig is a dead pig if your from or in Texas.)

Anywhoos......turkey day is almost here. Relatives heading my way this year. Not out hog hunting because my clan loves to dump hogs when they arrive. ( Especially kin from areas of the country that dont have wild pigs...or very little.)

As usual, my part is already done, and every area here is ready for them. Hogs are very abundant.....lol.

Plus you need something to end a fight with a human too. Just Because you are in the woods doesn’t mean you are “ out of the woods “ as far as crime is concerned.

I mean anybody who’s ever seen an 80s horror movie knows you can be a target of bad guys in the woods , especially if you are making out with a girl.

I carry a 10mm in hog country.

They aren’t brown bear , but I wouldn’t go trying kiss a feral hog to see if they are dangerous 🙂.

I’m just glad this turned out being a great story and extra bacon instead of something that went south.

TENNGRIZZ Opening day of rifle season here , did not hunt this morning , but this afternoon had a Big Doe and 3 yearlings stroll by , I let them walk , see what tomorrow brings , also saw a couple of Grey Fox let them walk as well , plus lots of squirrels. JMHO and S/FI!
