OK I can keep this somewhat short because it is really simple.

A few months ago I came across this place out in the sticks TORN UP by feral hogs. And I mean turned upside down and inside out. It looked like a Sherman Tank had made a few on the spot turns. (just like in the random picture below)

Every time I returned there were fresh tracks so the hogs kept coming back...

I figured that place would be a good site to try out an idea I had when talking to hunters in the area who were asking me not to walk around in the area where they had spread out some feed to lure the hogs.
Playing dumb I asked them what those hogs wouldn't like about me walking around there and the hunters replied it would be "the human smell they associate with danger".

From now on it gets interesting. Don't continue or complain in this tread if you have a weak stomach,

I HAVE WARNED YOU!

So about a month ago (and a few times after) when I went back to that place I took a dump (yes really!) right in the middle of where the hogs liked to dig. I took a stick and put some of the turd on surrounding trees to make sure the smell would be spread evenly.

The hogs never returned and everything there remained untouched since!


It's that simple!

Yea that is the main problem in my area is the animals we have deer and hogs and goats and all kind of shit around here. I knew a guy that use to hang pots and pans from trees so when the wind blew they would bang together and scare the animals off. I know that might sound crazy but around here we dont worry too much about ppl finding our crops too much everybody has a hundred acres of woods in there backyard.

No it is a real and true pic showing Feral Hogs having turned the area upside down!
It looks just like the area I was talking about in my OP.

All of the above IS true but only occurs if and when the hogs have nothing else to eat.
The ones around here live in their natural environment with plenty to eat and are the happiest creatures around...:)

If you can hunt feral hogs with a knife your a bigger man than me. Hogs will tear your shit up. Hog hunting can be dangerous even with a rifle.

thats how its done down here with pitbulls with vests to protect them..
. n you cant knife a hog with a knife alone...
. you would never catch it on your own..
you'd need som dogs.. and between the dogs barkin and the pig squeelin.. you might as well just shoot it.....

maybe your talking about knifing pigs at the pig farm?:wave:
