Looks to me like you got a perfect spot to build a permanent hog trap - just build a pen with hog wire using trees or 4x4's set at least 2' deep. Once they get used to going in to feed, put a trap door in, and check it every morning. You could catch 6-10 hogs a night if you get lucky - just make sure it's low enough for deer to jump out.

Here's a website with good plans and pictures.

If you get too much pork - give me a shout - I'll even trade for some elk meat.

I wish I could run across something like this... The last hog hunting I've been able to do was at Avon Park in the mid-eighties. I was stationed on the base and would go out and get a couple when we were planningsquadron picnics. I think we had more fun on the all-night cookouts than we had eating the food...
