    First time here - looking forward to reading all the posts! I've been hog trapping since 1995, and am still hooked. So much so, I stopped deer hunting because the "fun factor" trumped the hunting fun.

    Welcome to the fray. Out of curiosity... how many hogs do you average per set?

    Thanks for the welcome. To answer - it depends on which trap (s) I set. My corral trap is huge - 68 x 32 and on a good weekend it will catch five or six on average. The portable traps will catch two or three, but mostly singles. I don't set in the summer because I'm not down there enough, and I won't leave them at the mercy of the heat. Also depends on the trap itself - I have good catchers, and have two that are poor designs and are hardly worth setting.

    If those numbers are pretty consistent, you're doing pretty good with those. I've often wondered how many sets a sounder is good for (I'm sure it varies) before they smarten up and avoid going near.
