Default Are you using hog baits?

Do you know how to make DIY hog baits? My friends are going for a pig hunting trip next month and they tag me along. Thought i might become useful if i make them hog baits.

Thanks in advance!

IMO: Best attractant for hogs is soured corn. Fill a five gallon bucket about 2/3rds full of corn, fill bucket with water to a couple inches from the top. Replace lid and set bucket in the sun until it really smells.

Put the soured corn in a feeder pan or open bucket and wait.

I have tried all sorts of homemade baits and 3 commercial baits. I can't tell that any of them work in better than just plain old corn. I have done the souring, Big Red, jello, beer, diesel, and Kool-Aid etc.

The only thing I have not been able to try successfully is a pile of rotten watermelons and that is because I don't know any growers.

I have used soured corn, a 5gal bucket 2/3rds full, with some of the cheapest beer you can buy. A 6pk will work and I add about 4-6 pks of Kool-Aid, I like cherry for color and scent. Let stand in a closed bucket for a few days and pour it out at your site area. Has worked for us many times over.
