Default WTB Pig trap materials and gate

I am on the lookout for materials to devise a wild pig trap. Could be buy, borrow or rent. Materials I am looking for would be rolls of fencing materials, the 4 or 6 inch square mesh and a one way gate. Any ideas are welcome as this is first attempt.

you dotn want rolls of hog wire. you need cattle panels, and can make a trap door with that also. much easier to set up, break down and move.

I've made a few hog pens. Word to the wise don't have a square pen, hogs will pile up on each other and jump, keep it round, to keep them moving. Also a roof isn't a necessity but it's a good idea. Hogs are very canny when trapped and will do the unbelievable to escape. Keep the pen small as possible to keep running distance short. Keep T posts on the outside of the panels vs inside. Guillotine or rooter trap door work best. Back home we use hog snares that's a #5 Bridger wolf trap minus the jaw teeth, with a 7 X 19 airline cable to deer stop with a coiled spring compressed over the " jaw". Steel mesh square over the kill plate to have a bigger kill zone "foot ". Hog steps on the kill plate, jaw closes throwing the cable that "shoots" because it's compressed by a spring up around the leg, very effective on trap shy hogs. Put the spring in a piece of PVC pipe buried to hide it and PVC pipe keeps dirt out of the coiled spring to have faster projection.

Looks like something that would come out of a creek in africa

I have everything you need. But I'd need to be a part of the process. I'm still testing a trap design for a future trip.

Spooney, I am probably going to head up this week and come up with a plan. Right now it is hog wire, around trees, pulled tight. I need to devise or buy a gate, might have to do the one at TSC, but I really don't want to drop the full retail money down right now.

Thanks Tip and Tails, your advice will be heeded as much as I can, I'd rather take good advice that make a bunch of trap shy hogs. I have a lot of pigs, freezer meat just waiting to be checked out! Any advice welcome

We always leave the top of the trap open so deer can escape if they get trapped. But the walls are high -- 5 ft or so.
