Default Best Hog Bait?

I have used sour corn and it works well, but I like to try new things, and don't like to buy baits. What homemade baits for the best. I use them in traps and at feeders in South Texas.

Plain old shelled corn. If you want to jazz it up, sprinkle some strawberry jello and/or brown sugar on the corn in and around the trap. Hogs have a sweet tooth, they can't resist strawberry jello and brown sugar.

I agree with falcon hogs do have a sweet tooth. Something else I've found that works and stinks worse than soured corn is soured Milo; and it takes half the time to sour it up.


I use to soured Milo for carp; it will sure bring them in. I catch carp for cut bait on my jug lines for catfish and it stinks so bad I decided to try in on pigs and it works. They can smell that nasty smell for miles. Bury in a few feet in the ground and they will keep digging there long after it's gone.

Soured Milo STINKS like a scalded goat.

I've known guys that use rotten taters; but I guess anything that gets their attention would do the trick.

It's grain sorghum. This is a game plot with milo and cow peas. The peas climb the milo stalks. Hogs love milo. Sometimes they they set up shop in my game plots.

Hogs will come to a variety of scents. I've mixed vanilla in with bait before, or just put some on a rag and tied it to the top of a trap.

Diesel also works. You can soak a rag or a burlap sack in diesel, tie it around a tree, and the hogs will rub up against it.
