    Great idea for new hog bait..."Bug-N-Grub"
    Half corn--half bugs. Brilliant!

    Back to the legalities for a moment... Here in WA state I email both the Sheriffs' Office for the county we will be in as well as Fish and Game. I then get their replies and print the entire email thread. We do call the Sheriff the day before night shooting/hunting and give them a estimate of the areas we will be in. This all gets packed with my hunting license on each trip and we have yet to have an issue. This is advice from a local Sheriff who is a friend of mine (darn near family) and like most common sense things typically works.

    Rd,

    The previous pages mentioned legalities in hunting so I was just passing along what has worked for me. Just being helpful. Who gets called when a Farmer hears shots at night? The Sheriff of course. If they know they don't even show up, typically. If they do the emails are a life saver as it shows you are being responsible.

    :)

    Long-time hunter, deer mostly, and bear. Often wondered what was making the lower rubs.

    Have you tried a caller? I got bored on a crappy morning waiting for a nice buck who had been on camera every day who obviously wasn't gong to show for me. It was sometime around Christmas and pulled up some hog sounds on youtube and blasted them through my iPhone to see if I could stir any b/f I climbed down. Within 90 seconds I had one not walk, but RUN in. I was impressed enough to know I will be using a caller for squealin' babies at times this summer. I've also found the boars like a bleat call in particular the Primos I've called in 2 boars that didn't walk, but crashed in on me with the bleats. Might be worth a try if you are not having any luck

    Yes. Hogs rub up against the log to keep their skin moist and scratch itches. Lots of people plant poles for this purpose.
