Re: how to hunt pigs
Is it legal to bait where you live? If so here is your winning ticket.....
50lbs Bag of corn
Strip or Two Yeast
6 pack Cheap Beer
Drill a couple 3/4” holes around the Top of the bucket
Back at home, fill the bucket about two thirds of the way with corn (or bird seed). Throw in a couple of cups of sugar. Now add enough warm water to cover the corn; stir with a stick for a couple of minutes. Now add a packet of yeast, stir well, and pop a can of beer and stir that in.
Keep your mash someplace relatively warm. By the next day the corn will have sucked up most of the water, so add more water until the corn is covered again. Within a day or two the sugar, yeast, and corn will start to ferment and a sweet smell will start to waft up from the bucket. One you start to smell the sweetness, put some molasses in the bucket (NOT MUCH), and let it keep fermenting.
I let this ferment for a minimum of 2 weeks before putting it out in the field. This formula works best during spring/summer when the weather is hot/warm.
Dig a hole with a post hole digger roughly 3 feet deep. I like the corn to be level with the ground when the hole is full. leave the area and check on it from a distance every couple days. The least pressure you put on the site the better chance u have of hogs feeding during the day. I like to set up trail cameras and retrieve the pictures every 4-5 days. I also keep adding fresh fermented corn to the site everytime I check the pics to keep the hogs coming back. Once you have a steady flow of hogs coming in, set up at a comfortable shooting range for yourself and sit still. You should be filling the freezers.
