Its a constant battle isn't it? Here is another one from this weekend. She had a lot of babies with her and I had hoped they would come back but I got bored of waiting.

Same with the beavers. They are relentless.

Just think of how much spare time some of you guys would have If it was not for pigs and beavers.

Yeah, I could take up golf! :lol2:

Had 20 in a field this morning. One died of lead poisoning and then I checked the snares. 3 of 6 were tripped and one had actually caught something but apparently I had a design flaw and it broke free. I had put a swivel on an extension cable thinking that would help keep them from twisting the wire all up but the pig pulled this open. I don't know how much force it took to straighten this but I think it was a lot. Just made up 12 more snares without this feature so I'll see how this goes in the morning. I'm still learning. Slowly.

Jo dang hog is one stout critter.
I have had one move this trap 8 or 10 yards in the pasture before from inside.
That is one heavy trap takes a tractor to pick up.

You might try using a thinner piece of wire or cable for your snare. When I really hated deer I used a snare made out of #10 piano wire. Most the does throats would be cut and the bucks would break the wire and escape.

I don't think the cable is the problem. They load fine. I think I need to just work on my setups. I'll see how they do in the morning.

Here is what a piney woods rooter can do to a man who isn't quick enough with the knife when he goes to stick 'em.

He failed the IQ test when he pulled a knife at a hog fight as he has four.
When I go to kill hogs with a 22 LR I have a 357 on my hip. I am not getting close enough for knife work until the hog is DRT.

I don't know why some of the guys do this. I guess its an adrenaline rush. Not for me. Not now anyway. Maybe in my younger days assuming there was someone willing to hold my beer. :lol2:

I enjoyed catching hogs with dogs and never carried a gun. I would bob a sows tail and castrate and ear notch the boars. Then I started selling the hogs to game farms in North Carolina and Tennessee. And when I was told I had to start killing them, I quit hog hunting. If I'd of known then what I know now I'd of killed everyone of those stinking varmits. Throughout my hog hunting career with dogs I lost 14 good dogs to the hogs.
