Default Corral Type Hog Trap

Does anyone have a set of plans for a corral type hog trap or know of a website to find some. Hogs are showing up more and more at the lease and I'm trying to knock a few out. I have never trapped hogs before so I'm kinda green when it comes to this stuff. Thanks

I've googled "corral type hog traps" and found several different pics and discussions on how to build them. I will say this, using corn with diesel fuel poured all over it works really good, and the coons and deer won't bother it. Also, make them round, because they will bunch up in the corners and could get out of its not real tall or built really stout. And ( this may sound nuts, but) wire or fix the door where it won't trip for a week or so to let them get used to going in without hesitation. That way, if you build a trigger mechanism that allows it, you could catch the whole sounder at once. Put a camera on it when you bait it, that way you can tell when they get comfortable entering it all at once. Hope this helps.

Don't think I've heard bout diesel over the corn trick. I'll try anything. I'm gonna watch some YouTube vids and see what I can come up with.

Think regular 4' cyclone fencing and "T" post can hold a few hogs? I have a bunch of that at the camp.

Doesn't take much diesel to keep the deer away from it. Certainly don't need to soak it or anything.

As for the chain-link fence and t-posts...they aren't going to hold a hog of much size for very long. 4' isn't tall enough, either...and you can't legally put a top on it.

Don't know if this is legal now, but once upon a time it would work: Take loader bucket and dig hole size of bucket, pour in a few hundred pounds of corn and cover with feed mill molasses, blend all together with dirt removed from hole so that the pigs have to sort through the dirt to get the good stuff. You should end up with something that looks like a fresh grave. Add another couple of bags of corn on top covered with and a little more molasses. Set up camera and leave it alone until pigs start digging a hole there. Then build your corral trap around the site after the hogs get used to eating there. Hog slammer gates from West Point work well on coral traps. Cattle panels will work to catch all but he smallest ones. Once the fatten up it will get them too.
