If they are getting trap savvy. Try wiring your doors open for a week to two weeks and then reset them. You will waist some corn but works almost evertime.

BIG EAST TEXAS BOAR

Ya i have tried locking the doors up, but i havent really noticed a diffrence. I think they are just getting used to seeing them and know to stay away. Ya i used a rifle, we were spot lighting and he ran down into a creek bottom. We couldnt find him then noticed him haulin towards a fence line with some thick woods behind him. He got right up to the fence and stopped. Was using a 7mm dropped him in one shot, then finished it with a head shot when we got close and saw what we were dealing with. ha it was hell getting him in the bed of the truck.
