Default Help me catch this trap smart hog!!!

I have a game camera watching my hog trap, and for close to 2 months now I've got had a BIG boar coming and eating the corn I put in it.
He will eat any corn I leave outside the trap, and even stick his head and front legs into the door of the trap to reach more corn.
When I put corn ONLY in the very back of the trap, I have tons of pictures of him circling the trap looking at it trying to figure out how to get to it....but he WILL NOT go into the trap all the way triggering the door to close.
I've tried regular corn and soured corn. He's plenty interested in coming back every night to check things out....just not enough to commit.

Any ideas on how I can get this old trap smart hog to get himself caught??? Or is this one just too smart???

Any help would be appreciated! I'm spending a ton on corn and the racoons are getting as big as the hogs from being fed so well...lol.

That is a very smart hog. You may never get him. i gave up on a couple of hogs like that one. Did it the old fashioned way, sat in the tree stand and shot the suckers when they came in.

i did get one trap shy hog by changing the bait to cut up potatoes and half rotten apples. Good luck.

I'd trap him with a bullet to the heart

What part of NE Texas are you from?

If you had a sow hog in a trap with a pen attached youd catch em everytime but as this isnt always practical shootin em or giving em a bulldog headache would suffice.
