Any of you guys have any creative ways to bait hogs other than plain old corn?

Mix your corn with water, cheap beer, sour milk, diesel, anything to make it sour and stink.

I think molasses works the best..use anything that smells horrible..also crawfish season is here if you have a crawfish boil you can use the shells..

I dont think that he was implying for humans to consume the diesel. I believe he was asking for the hogs. Usually you dont just pour it on the ground. Most people put it in a bucket and close it and let it soak for a couple days. And what harm is the diesel going to do to your property?

ok
i understand how to use it, but if you used say, 50 pounds of corn you would need a couple gallons of diesel. when you pour the corn soaked diesel out it would soak into the ground. just pour some on a couple plants and see what happens. and if the hogs ate the diesel soaked corn, and you ate the hogs, where does the diesel go? the magic river?? come on sportsman use your head diesel is a toxic petroleum product used for fuel, not a big game attraction.

Oh boy!
Hey Pineywood!
Does your wife use baby oil? That is petroleum based also. Did you know cow paddies are toxic? I have those all over my property so please don't call DEQ on me! Are you a member of Greenpeace?

Just giving you a hard time!lol

Really, I think the diesel/corn reciepe is used to limit the savage coon population from eating all the bait before the hogs get there!

not a member just aware
i understand there is a reason, and no im not a member of greenpeace, just dont understand why people dont realize or want to realize the destructive properties a certain action can have. hunting and conservation go hand in hand, you could probably trap the unwanted coons(i swear there is a post about coon recipes on here now.) and still trap the hogs. the reason i posted cause it is unnecessary to add diesel to corn. i mean come on, use some common sense.

Sour Corn
The reason for putting the diesel on the corn is a deer will not eat it the corn has diesel on it, but a hog still will. I like put the corn in a bucket and pour beer or water on it and let it sit in the sun for a few days to sour. The hogs will be attracted to the sour smell of the corn and games species such as deer and turkeys will not eat the corn if it has soured.
Good Luck

diesel
You don't have to use much diesel to season the corn with to keep the deer and coons away. A small coke bottle full to a five gallon bucket of corn is more than enough to taint the corn but will not cause an enviromental disaster.

A freind of mine made a feeder out of 4" PVC put screw on caps on both ends and drilled some holes in the pipe wired it to tree using 5/16 aircraft cable and filled it up with corn.....also put grape koolaid in with it....it works pretty good we have killed a few already at this set up!!!!the sour corn works good too.....also took a post hole digger and dug a hole about 18" deep filled it up with corn and put some dirt back on top....the hogs have to work for it and will not eat it all at once.....

Rooter, you proved your point that ignorance is rampant with your response. Good day.

Just clowning around!
Hey Rooter,

Just clowning around about all this BS! too much time on my hands today.

Something that works but is probably illegal is to put the black pvc drain pipe you find on downspots of a house around a tree. Then rub in used motor oil into the cracks of the pipe. The hogs then use this to get the bugs off of them. Not real good for the environment, but so is driving!

sour milk
m buddy has a milk route and he would give all the sour milk to me, i would wait till it started chunking up and pour around my trap, we would have as many as 3 pigs in there sometimes

Corn
It doesn't matter what anyone says, Diesel and Corn WORKS....Nothing but Hogs will eat the mixture and you don't need much diesel, just enough to coat the corn.
Reply
Works, but
I don't doubt hogs would eat diesel soaked corn, they eat anything. I am not worried about ground contamination and plant deaths and blah blah either. I used diesel to burn trees and stumps all the time, until it got to $3.50 a gallon. Too expensive to burn now. The only concern I have is that I eat what I shoot, and if the hog eats diesel, that can't be healthy for the hog, and must filter into the meat. I would never eat a hog that I shot over diesel corn. Call me crazy, but I am against that. If you want to eradicate them, trap them till you can't stand it, shoot every one and burn the carcasses with the diesel if you don't want them. Don't lube them up internally so that the guy on the next lease shoots a hog to eat and burps diesel.

Marinate
Just marinate your meat in an oil absorbent granule or kitty litter and it will remove the diesel flavor!!

corn and water
put the corn in a 5 gallon bucket, fill it with water and put the lid on it for 5-7 days. DON"T take the lid off till you are at your spot and hold your breathe. Caught 11 in December and 17 in January.

hog bait
take an ice chest(one that you dont use alot because you might not get the smell out)put a bag of corn in it and fill it with water to the same level as the top of the corn, next take a gallon of milk and pour it over the water and corn. close the ice chest and let sit for a couple of days to a week to where it can sour. then take it to where you want to hunt and it wont be long. not only does it work, but nothing else will eat it....they go nuts over it

try this
What you need to do is find an area where you want the hogs to stay and cut a tree about 12" in diamter and cut the tree about 4 foot from the ground... place old car tires that are filled with corn around the stump. The hogs will stay in the area trying to get the corn out the tires and begin to make a wallow in the same spot. I also find that to get the hogs coming in quick I pour a couple of cans of parmesan cheese around the tires..........

fish heads
hogs eat the nastiest stuff they can find. if you go fishing keep the carcases and use them for bait, they go crazy. also go to your nearest doughnut shop and ask for the three day old stuff the throw away. both cheap and easy to get.

Bread
You can use anything, go to your local day old bread store and load up, they give away all of there stale product. Go to your local seafood restaurant and get there seafood peelings. As far as using diesel I can't see where it would hurt a pig unless you were feeding them over the coarse of years. If you do use diesel make sure you use on road diesel and not off road diesel. On road diesel has red dye in it so if you hunting and you see a hog with red dye around his lips......shoot it but don't eat it.

hogs and diesel
We had to give up using diesel/corn mixture. Every time we tried to cook one it would burst into flames. Nothing left but a charred skeleton.Kinda smelt like the exaust from my Dodge Cummins diesel.....

Where is it ok to hunt over there?

Re: Hog bait
I went and bought a bunch of corn and put it in 5 gallon buckets along with some beer sugar and kool aid packets to add some sweet smell. I let it sit for a week or so and they ate almost 100lbs of it within 2 days. As far as mixing diesel I’ve heard it works but I wouldn’t wanna eat a hog after it ate some diesel soaked corn but that’s just my personal preference. Good luck!
