    Well if there are going to be any firefighters in the hunting party you better mix it up before you leave. If you don't the Cheetos and Big Red will be all gone and you will have nothing left but the corn.

    Several years back five of us all firefighters left Columbus Ohio headed for Toledo Bend Lake on the TX/LA border. We were in one of the fellow's motor home all stocked with enough snack food for the trip. Well not exactly, we had to stop in Cincinnati to restock:eek:

    I like to soak the deer corn until it sours. The smell brings them in, they love it.

    An old hog trapper showed me the simplest trick and it has worked for me on various occasions. It's quick and simple.

    Get 10 pounds of corn and pour where you want to shoot and sprinkle raspberry jello powder on top, just one box / 10 pounds of corn. The cheap stuff has worked for me just as well as the name brand. Hogs aren't too picky around here.

    Let us know what you try and how it works for you.

    I do wish we had a few hogs around here. No rabbits, or quail either.

    I cant bait the pigs for the bear right now.... They need to start hibernating(or the Southern version of it anyway) and leave my corn alone so I can get some pork!

    I tried the corn and strawberry soda in a gatorade jug and the bears tore it down the same day. I didnt add the other stuff. I just hung it up planning on the corn souring in the soda and putting off some fumes. I dont know that the bears gave it that chance.....

    Fixed that for ya carver! I really want to kill some more hogs. I have a buddy that brined the hams and smoked them with hickory & apple wood and it was the best ham I've ever had.
