Just wondering if anyone has stuck one ? Hey Tom Ole buddy... Welcome to the tree huggin society :lol: Ya see Tom got to get intimate with a tree to get away from a hog that wanted to invite him to leg lunch. :rolf:

We had a great time. It was my first 'O' fficial hog hunt. I learned a lot too. I am ready to get back after them and will most definitely use the bird seed and more strawberry gelatin.

I am still in awe that Tom got charged by the boar. :shock:

Yep, they are great creatures to hunt, they have ok kinda eyesight, but the nose is their greatest asset. they can smell your track as much as 2-3 weeks old.
But, havin said that..... I have found, that is the way to get around it too. Wrap a old Sweaty T shirt kinda close down wind of the bait pile. something they can smell and see, it's not a threat (they will even chew on it so make sure it's disposable). mainly just put some of your scent in the area,their hunger will over-ride the threat they feel. they will be on alert, but not too bad.

Then when they smell you,They will ingore your faint (scent-free washed) smell when your hunting. To lure them in, use whole corn, molasses, rottin fruit,syrup, powdered kool-aid ours love strawberry. dig a hole and pour some in the hole for them to dig up, couple hand fulls with syrup will do the trick.

Funny you should say that.... Just tonight I was settin in the middle of a 85 acre "pen" had a huge hog walk in and look around and just wonder off to another area of the 85 Acre pen, not to be seen again in that area.
I did see him again (or maybe another hog) just at dark 1/2 mile away from the "pen" area I was sittin, he saw me just bout the time I saw him. Again funny thing, he was the only other hog I saw in the whole 85 acre "pen" area.
