I liked the idea of the pig pipe and will implement it in my hunting area.
I'm sure I'll have good results with the pig pipe.
There is a method where the corn is placed in a barrel with a hole at the bottom. For this hole is passed a chain that goes to the floor. When the boar hit the chain, the corn falls in small amounts. In fact, the boar learns to hit the chain corn will fall.
I used this method for a long time but now I bought a feeder with a timer and is working fine.
One advantage is that you hear when the boar hit the chain and are ready to shoot him.
Around here the raccoons would learn to move the chain around and would empty all of the corn, so it wouldn't work. The pig pipe is something that works well here because it's too big for the coons to roll around.
Here is a pic of some hogs working one of my pipe's
We found a great place a couple of weeks ago about 100 yards from the Red River. Hog tracks, trails, rooted up areas all over the place and you couldn't walk 5 feet without seeing another pile of hog crap. We set it out, spread out a little extra corn and left it for a week with a game camera on it. We got a couple of pictures of hogs the first night, then nothing for a couple of days then after that it was hundreds of pictures of deer.
I have 10 going year round. Some get emptied every other night, and some go a week or so.
It will take the hogs a week before they figure it out. If you have a big area you can see how there new found skill
spreds through the hunting area. You can also tell when new hogs are in the area.
