Re: post hole baiting

I remember talking to a guy who did that very same thing with a pvc pipe only tossed a bell on the end and hunted it at night with a good bit of luck. I may have to give it a shot.

    Easier than a hole and much more portable.

    Did you do anything special with the bait? like add pig wild or any other attractant?

    The bait was corn and wheat soaked in milk and left for a few days to go off

    If you are hunting an area with no cows, use cattle "cubes" in the post hole. Strong odor to attract them and they love them. Come in 50 # sacks at feed stores, tractor supply, etc.

    A couple of friends did this with corn and the bait lasted a while. They said after a week it looked like somebody had set off a bomb.

    We have several areas that we bait holes with corn. We've used dry corn right out of the bag, dry corn with cherry jello mixed before we dump it in the hole, corn with beer dumped over it, but the best has been to mix a concoction as if you were making a mash. (NO I DON'T MAKE WHISKEY) fill a 3' hole to about 6" from the top and fill remainder with dirt. The wet mixture will absorb into the ground and the hogs will keep coming back and rooting around even after the corn is gone. Give the hole 24 to 48 hours to start working and use your game cameras to find out when the holes are getting hit. With some cover you'll probably get some daylight action. If the area is pretty open count on night time action.
