Default What's good hog bait

Going to try to lure hogs on my property to a certain area. The area is about 100 yards from a small shallow pond. No wallows. But hogs have been walking through


Do they like stinky bait. Or fruity good smelling stuff.

Heard corn in a shallow hole with koolaid over it.

An I've heard corn soaking in beer for a few days in sunlight. Then poured out. Which is better. Stinky or fruity smell.


Deer are also in the area. Don't wanna stink em away with ba smelling corn lmao.

Hogs are not exactly discriminating in what they'll eat. They'll eat stinky corn, sweet candy corn, corn with diesel (this is done to repel raccoons and deer). Once you get them used to feeding in an area, just switch to plain corn. You don't need anything complicated.

Baiting a hole with corn and kool-aid or jello powder works great especially if you add some peanut butter to the mix! Also, look inot building a pig pipe-there's lots of instructions on the internet. Works great and is portable.

Other bait stuff to use in addition to corn:
-spoiled fruits from grocery store (you may need to get permission to raid their dumpsters)
-old bread, pastries & doughnuts
-dry cat/dog food

-AND if you by chance have acces to dregs & culls from a nut processing facility....GET IT.

It is. I'll try straw berry jello mix in my corn. I'll dig a 3 foot hole with post hole diggers so they'll have to dig to get it.

Yeah, Joe is spot on. I've mixed it all together. I fill a 5gal bucket with corn, pour strawberry jello and beer over it. I put fresh corn in my feeder then pour the mixture over top. Now if the hog traffic gets too high, they will drive your deer out of the area.

corn soaking in beer for a few days is an amazing bait but add fresh apples or mangos to the mix for a rich strong smell and possibly let it set in the heat for bout a week all depending on you,good luck..... cory
