  • Large boar hog

    I have a very elusive boar hog running around my place. He has been run with dogs and they can't ever keep him bayed long enough to catch. I have seen him while baling hay and didn't have a gun. My girlfriend rode the four wheeler with in 30 yards of him a couple weeks ago and he wasn't scared of that. (She didn't have a gun either) I have picture of a rub he made on a tree I guessed him around 250 or 300 pounds.

    I forgot to mention I need some bait that hogs like but cows don't. Like maybe table scraps or something.

      Better get rid of that hog or you are going to have a problem. Carry a gun with you.
      A 300lb was shot in N. Ohio plus the other day a 60lb coyote in the same area.

        Soured corn. Google the recipe it's corn and yeast and water in a 5 gallon bucket with a lid left to ferment in the sun a few days. They way I seen it done is to dig a hole with post hole diggers about 2-4 feet deep put about a foot of soured corn in it and waited out.

          He has been around for a couple of years. I'd rather catch him but like I say the dogs can't stop him and he is to smart for traps. So looks like a bullet to the brain is his only option.

            About all you can do is stay armed. If you or the GF stumble into him, validate his parking ticket!
            I won't suggest an AR10, they can be a bit too heavy.
            But an AR15 in 6.8mm Rem SPC II is light enough for the GF, easy on recoil and has plenty "OOMPH!" to punch his ticket!
            Guaranteed!
            Those hogs that live near human habitation lose their respect for humans.
            You can bait to your heart's delight and never draw him out during daylight hours, but it sure won't hurt to try.
            Any soured grain is a big "hog draw".

              What I use for Hog bait Glass soda pop bottle or two full of corn they will play with it till it's empty! Trust me it works.
              As for a firearm get you a 10mm handgun while bailing hay.

                Set up a trail camera. If it can take Bear photos at night it can take hog photos.
                Good Luck!

                  With all due respect, I believe there are more effective handgun calibers for shooting feral hogs, the .44 Magnum for one.

                    This works. It lasts long enough they get hooked on it. The only problem is getting them on it in daylight. Cattle can't get to it and disrupt it either. It may take them a while to find it but once they do, you have them.

                      Why does Bubba constantly corrupt a post by inserting an irrelevant post that changes the thread. He does that all the time.

                      I have found that a riding mower takes less of a toll on crippled people, but you get more exercise with a pushing style reel mower.
