    I thought he was coming at one point...I jacked up my back yesterday and can hardly walk today but I managed to climb to the top of the fence and shoot him some more from there.

    Ok, so I talked to the ranch lady, she said she set the trap a week ago because hogs were in the front yard, I asked what she baited it with. She said horse feed, small horse feed pellets, go figure, biggest I have caught and it was on basically pellets of hay/alfalfa.

    Nice video. Big ole boar.
    I got confused on the 1st video, I thought you were going thru the fence then he raised the pen up and all of sudden you were back across the fence from him! Lmao.
    Way to go Dan!

    Looked like he had the alfalfa pellets as an appetizer, and wanted yours as the main course...

    i've heard on the internet that hogs aren't dangerous. all that cage butting and teeth snapping was just a bluff. i would have just kicked him in the nutts.

    Why in the world would you want to kick Dan in the nuts? He seems okay to me.

    Well... the jury's still out on that, however, he's sure a likable feller.

    I have a place where the fields are tore up from hogs. I go with rifle and light early in the mornings but hasn't worked out. (yes, I need Thermal).
    Have 2 traps set but these hogs do not trap easily. Set a giant trap....5' tall, 5' wide and 10' long made with 2" angle iron and cattle panel. It is stupid heavy, but I cut the bottom out of it last week to lighten it up. Still hard to load and unload on trailer. So an entire week and 1- 60 lb hog. Not very good results but I finally got to shoot my Lipsey Ruger 44. trapped pig.jpg

    Most important section of the story is in the first four words: "I have a place..."

    Actually getting property to hunt on is the hardest part of hunting here in Texas.

    Congratulations on earning the ability to be on it.

    And in my opinion - even when it goes perfectly - trapping is the toughest way to bring in the hooves.

    Nice job.
