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!
