I am headed to Arkansas to deer hunt and I would like to find a public hunting area to chase some pigs also. I will be staying in Johnson County in the Ozark NF. Someplace close to there would be great. Any info would be helpful
hunting pigs from a tree stand is a tall order, on national forest you would have a better chance at a P&Y unicorn. I trapped and shot 132 on my place in 18 months. I've been after hogs for a long time and they are tough to hunt for sure.
Hogs are where you find them. They are here today and gone tomorrow unless you bait them, then they will hit the bait most every day.....or night.
We've got some lease land in southern Yell Co with pigs on it. Just got a trap. We've got a couple but so far they are smarter than we are. Got any tips on trapping them?? We are using this trap http://www.thehawgstopper.com/ and baiting with corn.
One big tip! Make sure you secure the trap with at least 3 Tposts! Don't use the factory anchors. Use 3 Tposts and wire to secure trap. Im on several videos on hawgstopper.com. I would say just use plenty of bait, regular corn. I use the regular trigger setup with 2 metal rods in ground and a 3rd rod across the back of them. Don't get fancy. Make sure the gate can fall freely and no rocks in the tracks. I put a cell phone camera on mine so I can get them out quickly. It's a mess to reset the trigger if you leave them more than 8 hours. It's a great trap!
