    1) Mature deer can easily jump out as the panels are only 5' tall. Fawns can be a different story. I have only caught one and was able to free him before he beat himself silly trying to get out. The key to not catching deer is using a trigger that only the hogs will trip.

    2) Sausage, sausage and more sausage. I've caught close to 100 hogs in the last year or so. I butcher the "eating sized" ones and give most of it away to family and neighbors. Every now and then, we'll toss a couple of whole ones on the smoker. The ones that smell "off", as well as the big ones, feed the buzzards and coyotes.

    3) Just like shooting them, you can always check traps in the middle of the night.

    Some of you know Pat Byrne. Pat is a BR Hall of Fame shooter. He now only shoots hogs with his conventional bow. In the old days he liked his 223AI.

    Pat is fortunate to have a ranch full of hogs. He has always walked every evening with his rifles initially and now with his bow.

    It appears that Photo Bucket blurred my photos. A good reason not to use them going forward.

    "Professional soldiers are predictable; the world is full of dangerous amateurs."
    Does the same thing apply to pigs Capt.?
