Research shows that effective feral hog control requires catching the entire sounder (family group) at one time. We use a proven system that includes corral style traps. Our traps are capable of catching 30+ hogs at a time.

Successful feral hog control involves conditioning the entire sounder to feed freely inside the trap before setting it in catch mode. For example, let’s say you identify 15 hogs in a sounder but you drop the gates with only 7 hogs inside the trap and 8 hogs still outside. The 8 outside will become trap wise. The intent is to leave no survivors. This technique is done in phases:

Surveillance Phase: First step is to gather intel on the problem areas. We place bait and cellular cameras on spots with the most visible hog sign. The intent is to monitor hog activity for several weeks to identify the bait site with heaviest traffic, total # of sounders visiting the bait site, the total # of hogs in each sounder.

Conditioning Phase: The most active surveillance site is selected to become the actual trap site. At this point, all other baiting is stopped. A feeder is typically set up and programmed to feed daily. A cellular camera monitors the bait site. The intent is to condition entire sounders to feed at the trap site. If the trap is already in place, then gates are left open so that hogs get conditioned to feeding inside the corral. When cellular camera intel shows whole sounders visiting the bait site daily, then it is time to begin the trapping phase. If it is not already in place, a corral trap is setup directly over the bait site. At this point, we are ready to drop gates on the first sounder.

Trapping Phase: It is game on at this point. Cellular surveillance camera with motion sensor monitors the corral. Then it is a waiting game until every hog in that particular sounder has entered the trap.

Five Rs Phase: The dirtiest job starts after the gates drop. Think of it as the five Rs. Return to the site. Remove the hogs. Rake up as much hog scat as possible. Reset trap gates. Refresh bait.


No problem. We sell Pig Brig traps. All of our traps are monitored remotely via wireless cellular surveillance camera. Pig Brig is the ideal trap where mobility and portability are a must. A Pig Brig net style trap can be hauled in a pickup bed or side-by-side and is easily setup by one person. All three traps are Made in the USA!
