    Well I'm kinda of between being happy and mad. I love deer hunting and I know that hogs will kill a deer fawn but on the other hand I love hog hunting to. I guess I just love hunting. These are the first hogs I got on trail came in 6 months. I ended up getting a 144 pic 98% hogs other nothing and tree rats. I was getting 1 to 5 pics a week. Look at the size of the hog in the center.

    Nice pigs and fine black looking hogs. Do they ever turn that feeder over? If not, what's your secret?

    The smaller the better, at least in Boars. That big one would make a nice photo and coyote bait.

    Shoot them all.

    Your land and your neighbors will appreciate you.

    Also, Italian Salad Dressing works great as a marinade :).

    Just my .02,

    They probably won't turn the feeder over but what they will do is start rubbing against the legs and spread the legs out until the feeder is almost to the ground. That's why I'm no longer using tripods for mine.

    But notice in the first pic he's got the feeder chained up high to a tree. That should stop them from tipping it or spreading the legs too far.

    That's a big nasty male. He should have a target painted on his side.

    We solved that problem on a South Texas lease I was on by driving T-posts beside the legs, and wiring the legs to the T-posts with bailing wire. No more turned over feeders, or legs broken off.

    You've got a problem on your hands that looks like a lot of fun.

    Forgive my lack of knowledge about the subject, but will these hogs attack a person? Adult and/or child?

    Walking around in the dark with all those swine around might be a bit dangerous I am thinking.

    Yep they dumped my feeder a time or two. The tree and chain stoped it this time, the last time it went all the way to the ground. I'm trying tieing it off to the surrounding treesoon three points in hope that that will keep it upright.

    Not really, they can be dangerous when cornered or wounded but as a rule they will usually run from humans.

    Now that's a nice'un! High and massive front end and low to the ground rear end. Don't know if he's got any Russian stock or not but his genes look to have been feral for many generations. His ancestors may have been released by the Spanish explorers. :scrutiny:

    just south of Rockford. There is a WMA close to Rockford that's going to to have a hog season this year but I don't know the dates. The WMA in Whitehall is over run with the things.
