    Looks a little bit like our turf. Dang I can't wait to get out there Friday ugh. Hunting and fishing are the 2 activities I have actually grown to love more, not get tired of. The more I get the more I want.....I never want to leave the water or the woods when I'm in.

    Finally! After about a month they are rolling the barrel. I was beginning to think my hogs were descendants of Larry the cable guy and were too "challenged" to learn how. I had coated the side with everything from cat food to maple syrup and had about given up. Now it looks like an alien UFO crop circle in the pasture. I have a bunch of pigs on game cam and three really large ones that I hope one of them to be my wife's first kill. I will keep you updated.

    It might be my imagination, but I think he had a smile on his face.

    I build my hog toys out of blue syrup barrels for soft drinks like Dr. Pepper, 15 gallon I think and they look like FrankT's white barrels. He is good on the barrel end but I use T posts and put a ring, removable link, swivel, removable link on that end of the chain. The ring really keeps down tangles. I usually change the empty hog barrels out with full ones and just dropping the ring over the end of the Tpost makes that easy. I also remove the handles but run a quick link, swivel and then a removable link attached to the chain. I wire the quick link closed with bailing wire. My favorite bait is corn, pour a package of strawberry jello mix , 2 ounces, then I will pour a quart or so of used cooking oil on top of the jello into the 40-50 pounds of corn. I let the pigs mix it by rolling it around. If you have problems getting them to fool with the barrels build a 5 gallon bucket hog toy and use 3/4 inch holes which should be made near the top of the bucket or barrel to make it easy to handle without spilling bait all over. My barrel hog toys get 5/8 inch holes, three evenly around the end the chain is attached to and one the hogs start hitting them I will put good duct tape over one or two of the holes. It is important to have swivels at both ends and Tposts weigh less than cinder blocks!
