Clint, we have taken up to 75 hogs off our deer lease in 4 months before. One day my son and I saw 25 walk out on us and both shot and killed two at the same time. That was cool. I the hogs move in on use this year, I Will for sure call you and see what we can do. I want to wipe them out snares. I don't corn to hunt deer, just never like the idea. Maybe a little for bow hunting in the early part of the Oct, but never to gun hunt. Any way I talked everyone into not corning about 2 years ago and that help a lot. But we still have huge stand of oaks on our 1100 acres lease and when they start hitting the ground, the hogs come running.
My mind is as sharp as a steel trap, with off set jaws.
12 to 14 inch loop and look at your hog tracks and go by that, if you have large tracks, then have the bottom of your snare off the ground 8 to 10 inches. if you have 20 to 100 pound pigs the 1/8 snare isn't going to work on those. try a 7x7 3/32 or a 1x19 3/32 snare for these and make the loop 6 to 9 inches and 5 inches off ground. just remember when the hog see'e you coming the next morning he's going off like the big catfish your trying to get off the yoyo.
when it gets hot watch out because a hog can't swet so they over heat faster.
